Event Description

Professor Stephen Elkin of the University of Maryland will participate in a seminar on readings from Machiavelli, Locke, The Federalist Papers, and Lincoln.


Space for the seminar is limited, so participants will be required to RSVP ahead of time. To enroll, please e-mail Professor Daniel Lowenstein at lowenstein@law.ucla.edu. A free pizza lunch will follow the seminar.


In a departure from our usual pattern, Professor Elkin will not be giving a lecture at UCLA.  However, he will be speaking at Claremont McKenna College on Friday, February 20.  His topic will be “To Constitute the American Republic: Statesmanship and Other Maladies.”  The lecture will begin at noon in Kravis 321.  If you would like to attend that lecture, please notify Elvia Huerta at ehuerta@cmc.edu.


Professor Elkin is the author and editor of numerous books, including City and Regime in the American Republic (University of Chicago Press, 1987) and Citizen Competence and Democratic Institutions (Penn State University Press, 1999).


This seminar is a part of the Commercial Republic Project, which is conducted in partnership with the Jack Miller Center and made possible by the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
