The Summer Night Is Like a Perfection of Thought

March 31st is the deadline to apply to the Institute for Humane Studies’ two intellectual-history “Champions of Liberty” summer seminars for 2013 – Freedom Renewed: Libertarian Visionaries (June 8-14, Chapman University, covering Mill through the present) and Revolutionaries, Reformers, and Radicals: Liberty Emerges (July 27-August 2, Bryn Mawr, covering the School of Salamanca through the 19th-century anarchists; that’s the one I’m speaking at).

I’ve been at quite a few IHS gigs, on both the giving and receiving ends as it were, and they’re a lot of fun. They’re also free of charge to students, including food, lodging, and course materials (though not travel).

I’m also teaching at Mises U. (July 21-27) back to back with my IHS seminar. The application deadline for that is April 8th. (Same funding deal as IHS.) Collect them all!
