Yale — King’s College London Plato Republic Seminar
To date, the seminar has met to read Book I (London: June 11–15th, 2007); Book II (Yale: June 9–13, 2008); Book III (London: June 15–19, 2009), and Book IV (Yale: June 14–18, 2010); Book V (KCL: June 13–17, 2011); Book VI (Yale: June 18-22, 2012); Book VII (KCL: June 10-14, 2013). The group will meet at Yale to read Book VIII in June 2014. Minutes of the seminar meetings (produced by the graduates of the current year’s host institution, Yale or King’s College London) are distributed to all participants in the seminar.
In addition to the benefits of the seminar itself, the intensive nature of the seminar and its organization (five days during which participants lunch — and often dine — together), offers unparalleled opportunities for graduate participants to get to know and discuss their research with the distinguished group of international faculty as well as their London and Cornell graduate peers. Yale students working in ancient philosophy who have advanced to candidacy are eligible to receive financial support to travel to and participate in the London-based seminars.
The seminar is sponsored, at Yale, by the Provost’s Office and by the Whitney Humanities Center. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
