MLS 528 Liberty
The concept of liberty is a relatively modern one; we can trace its development from the English Enlightenment to the 21st century.  This seminar will explore how the idea of liberty has developed as a political, economic, cultural and social ideal.  We will look at liberty in markets, individual rights, conflicts between equality and freedom, international relations, psychological explorations of freedom, conflicts between states and individual liberties, and other topics.  Materials will include classic texts and cultural explorations of liberty through literature and the arts.

Professor Evan Oxman (Politics)
