Boston Anarchist Thinking Brigade

[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]

A reminder to anyone who's planning to attend the American Philosophical Association Eastern Division meetings in Boston (home of Samuel Adams and Benjamin Tucker!) this coming week: the Molinari Society will be holding its first symposium from 2:00 to 5:00 on Tuesday, December 28th. The topic is"Libertarianism and Feminism"; the scheduled presenters are Jennifer McKitrick (University of Nebraska - Lincoln) on"Liberty, Gender, and the Family"; Elizabeth Brake (University of Calgary) on"Free Love, Marriage, and Individual Sovereignty: From Stephen Pearl Andrews to Laura Kipnis"; and Charles Johnson (Molinari Institute) and myself on"Libertarian Feminism: Can This Marriage Be Saved?"

There are other libertarian sessions on offer that same day -- John Hasnas and Aeon Skoble on Hayek from 9:00 to 11:00, and then from 11:15-1:15 a choice of either Jan Narveson (inter alia) on economic justice or Doug Rasmussen on Rand. (See the full program for details.) So the hardiest souls can enjoy seven hours, nearly uninterrupted, of libertarian philosophy. (I fear I can't muster up such hardihood myself; I'll be at the 9:00 panel, which I'm chairing, and the 2:00 panel, which I'm on, but I doubt I'll have sufficient endurance to take in an 11:15 session as well. That's no excuse for you, however.)

Merry Krishna to all!
