Free Seminars on Classical Liberal Ideas

Do you want to meet others who share your passion for ideas?

Freedom Week Seminars 2018:

Freedom Week is a five-day intellectual adventure that gives participants a chance to explore the ideas of liberty. By taking part in Freedom Week you will have an opportunity to learn more about classical liberal ideas in areas like economics, philosophy, law, and public policy from a faculty of distinguished professors. The curriculum has been designed to engage students who are new to these ideas, as well as those with a bit more experience.

This summer the Institute for Liberal Studies will be hosting the following two Freedom Week seminars:

  • June 10-15 at Carleton University
  • July 8-13 at the University of Alberta

These five-day seminars are designed for students who are interested in learning about the classical liberal tradition and the foundations of a free society. They are open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, in all fields. Lectures will provide an interdisciplinary approach to this rich intellectual tradition and will cover subjects such as philosophy, economics, politics, and law.

Our faculty at this year’s seminars will include Moin Yahya (University of Alberta), Sarah Burns (Rochester Institute of Technology), Ross Emmett (Arizona State University) and other scholars to be announced soon.

Freedom Week seminars are offered free of charge, and room and board will be provided for all accepted students. Participants will be selected through a competitive application process. 
All applications must be submitted by April 30 at  (Students who apply by March 31 will receive a free book.)
