When and Where

Joy Connolly


The JHI is pleased to present the S.J. Stubbs Lecture in Classics Masterclass with Joy Connolly (President of the American Council of Learned Societies). Connolly will set the stage by reviewing the calls in recent years to reconfigure the current shape of the history of political thought from the ground up, with the goals of displacing Eurocentric narratives, sources, and concerns and attending to a broadly inclusive, global array of experiences and knowledge practices, particularly knowledge from “below” and “outside” the conventional spaces of cultural production. What spatial, linguistic, and theoretical coordinates might or will mark the map of a new, reparative history of political thought? She'll invite the group to discuss the practical consequences of this turn for doctoral education, particularly given the challenges of finding academic employment these days.

The masterclass will be held in person at the JHI. Seats are very limited for this opportunity. Please email Dr. Kimberley Yates to register. A recommended reading will be provided to participants before the class.
