David Owen, Professor of Social and Political Philosophy at the University of Southampton, will be presenting the paper 'Machiavelli's il Principe and the Politics of Glory'.

He has published widely across three main research areas: Nietzsche and post-Kantian critical theory encompassing post-structuralism and the Frankfurt School; Problems of Political Community addressing issues of multiculturalism and migration; and Democratic Theory ranging from foundational to policy-relevant levels of analysis.

His current research projects address the structure of agonist political theory and its relationship to perfectionism and realism, and the ethics and politics of migration and transnational citizenship.

All welcome.
