MANCEPT Workshops 2014

The MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory 2014 is an annual conference in political theory, organised under the auspices of the Manchester Centre for Political Theory. This year’s conference will be the eleventh event in the series and will take place on Monday 8th September until Wednesday 10th September at the Arthur Lewis Building, University of Manchester. Over the last ten years, participants from over twenty five countries have come together in a series of workshops focussing on political theory/philosophy widely construed. Last year the workshops had more than 200 delegates attending, and the conference is now established as a leading international forum dedicated to the discussion of research in political theory.

Please see the drop-down menu above for more information.

We are delighted to announce that we have accepted 34 panels this year; the most we’ve ever had! Please find details of the subject of each panel here (A-H), here (I-R), or here (S-Z).

Further information on panels in previous year’s workshops can be found here (2013), here (2012), or here (2011).


Upcoming FilmCEPT!

8 October we will be watching:



“In a gritty and alternate 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot…”


Based on the famous graphic novel by Alan Moore, this film is sure to inspire some interesting discussion, so come along the 8th of October (19:00, room 4.059–but both time and place are subject to last minute changes)
