Special Themed Events

  • Talking Across Centuries: Professors Adam Smith and Duncan Black
    (Technology and Innovation Centre)
    Adam Smith is perhaps the University of Glasgow’s most famous graduate, and this marks the June 2023 marks the 300th year of the birth of the father of political economy. Just over 200 years later (1932 to be exact), a young Duncan Black was awarded a first class honours degree from the same institution. After a stint at the Dundee School of Economics, Professor Black returned to Glasgow, where he wrote his seminal papers on group and committee decision making as well as chapters which formed the basis of his book The Theory of Committees and Elections. Black can be seen as the intellectual heir to the Scottish Enlightenment in general and to Adam Smith in particular. In several important ways, Black did for democratic politics some of what Smith did for market economics.
    The College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow is happy to partner with EPSA to welcome Professor John Aldrich of Duke University and Past President of the American Political Science Association to reflect on the works of these two Glasgow based giants of political economic thought on Friday, June 23 at 15.00. A drinks reception will follow.
    By registration only.
  • Diversity luncheon (Technology and Innovation Centre)
    This year’s annual diversity special session will take place on Friday 23 June from 12:10 to 13:10 in the TIC Foyer space. Advanced ticketing is required.
