The Politics of Interpretation & The Interpretation of Politics

23 08 2011

23-24 September 2011, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford


Within the last fifty years, interpretation has become one of the most important intellectual paradigms of humanities and social sciences scholarship. Theories about law and literature, philosophy and political thought, history and theology all rely on textual interpretation.


This conference will provide a setting in which distinguished proponents and critics of some of the prevalent interpretive approaches are able to engage, for the first time, in a rigorous debate about the advantages and costs of each approach, and to discuss the political assumptions that inform them, as well as aims that drive them. A graduate student panel will give advanced postgraduate students and early career researchers the opportunity to present their research.


Abstracts of up to 500 words are requested by 1 September 2011. Please submit your abstract to More information can be found at
