In June, Harry F. Dahms, professor and co-director for the Study of Social Justice, and his former graduate student Eric R. Lybeck co-organized the annual conference of the International Social Theory Consortium at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Lybeck, who recently completed his PhD at Cambridge, now teaches at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom.
A highlight of the three-day conference was a hike to The Orchard, a tea room and garden in Grantchester, near Cambridge, where Virginia Woolf, Bertrand Russell, John Maynard Keynes, and Ludwig Wittgenstein used to have spirited conversations. Over tea, naturally!
In December, Dahms taught at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. While there, he managed to make a quick to trip to Venice, Italy.
