The Political Thought Conference

The Political Thought Conference has been held in Oxford, first at New College, now at St Catherine’s, annually since the 1970s. Over that time it has become a vital part of the intellectual and professional calendar. Details of past conferences can be seen in our Archive, and news about the next conference on the ‘Conference’ pages.
