Centre for Political Thought

 Centre for Political Thought

The Centre for the History of Political Thought exists to promote the historical study of political thought along the broadest possible front, and to encourage scholarly research and publication. A distinct feature of the Centre is its specialism in British Political Thought. The Centre's activities include the organisation of research seminars, an annual Alan Milne and Henry Tudor Memorial lectures, to be delivered by a distinguished visiting speaker; and periodic conferences. The Centre wishes to understand the expression 'political thought' as broadly as possible and to provide a forum for all scholars working in the field.The Centre was founded by Dr Robert Dyson in 1997.
