It is also open to other students on related areas of study. Part of it is run in conjunction with the Political Theory Reading Group in Semester 1. The latter is a postgraduate and faculty research seminar series in the Politics Department. Participation in the Reading Group is meant to introduce you to contemporary debates and approaches. Normal classes will introduce you to the formation of modern political and social thought, examining some of the main themes characterizing both modern and post-modern debates. The module is intended to develop your ability to critically reflect about the nature and scope of political and social thought
