Ethics and Politics, Ancient and Modern
Sponsored by the Stanford Humanities Center and made possible by support from Marta Sutton Weeks, the Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities
Ethics and Politics, Ancient and Modern (EPAM) is a workshop on topics at the intersections of philosophy, political science, classics, and history. The workshop aims to provide a focus for Stanford faculty and students with a primary or secondary interest in classical moral and political philosophy, engaging faculty and students from several departments in interdisciplinary inquiry into foundational ethical and political questions. Workshop sessions offer graduate students and faculty at Stanford the chance to present work in progress to an interdisciplinary audience, while also providing our graduate students the opportunity to engage with cutting-edge research presented by visiting faculty. Our goal in each workshop session is to better understand classical texts and to explore the enduring relevance of classical ethical and political thought.
