Conference Registration Now Open

Registration for attendance at the 2009 Michael Oakeshott Association Conference is now open until 15th September.

The Conference is scheduled to take place at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, USA, November 12-14, 2009.

As announced earlier, the conference will explore the thought of Oakeshott, Leo Strauss and Eric Voegelin.


Although the program is still being finalized, several presenters have flagged their intentions to compare Oakeshott with Strauss, or Oakeshott and both of the other thinkers, on a range of themes including Hobbes, modernity, political judgment, religion and historical explanation.

Roger Scruton, Timothy Fuller and Robert Grant are anticipated to give the keynote presentations.

More details will be posted when they become available.


All are welcome and invited to attend. For further information, contact
