The Political Theory Workshop is pleased to announce a talk by Simone Chambers of the University of Toronto who will be speaking on:
"Rhetoric and the Public Sphere: Has Deliberative Democracy Abandoned Mass Democracy?"
Professor Chambers is a distinguished scholar of political theory and
public law. She has held various positions at Harvard, Colorado,
Princeton, and the University of Munich. She has made foundational
contributions to the study of deliberative democratic theory, democracy
and the media, and theories of civil society. More recently, Prof.
Chambers has been interested in the role of religion in public
discourse, as well as practical tensions arising within deliberative
democracy's institutional manifestations.
Please join us on Friday, April 11 at 3:30pm in Derby 2130 for what promises to be a very interesting talk, with a reception to follow.
