We address the ‘voice’ of political theory (as Michael Oakeshot, has put it) in the historical ‘conversation of mankind.’  However we are mindful of problems in the tradition that need to be addressed by newer forms of understanding and interpretation.  Our faculty has a wide familiarity with a variety of methods: post-structuralism, trauma theory, psychoanalysis, and The Frankfurt School, to mention just a few.   We encourage independent thinking and support innovative and creative approaches to writing and researching doctoral dissertations.
