Within Queen Mary, the Centre provides a loose institutional framework within which colleagues who share research interests are able to collaborate in a variety of research-related activities. It also provides a focus for the encouragement and support of the history of political thought within the University of London and beyond.
Its activities range from the organisation of a visiting speakers’ programme to the holding of international conferences and smaller
reading group sessions. It also seeks to foster collaborative research
at an institutional and international level.
The Centre welcomes applications from visiting scholars. Scholars
ordinarily visit for a period of three months, and are encouraged to
participate in the activities promoted by the Centre.
