Panel Chair -- Kevin Donnolley, Bridgewater State University, kevin.donnolley@bridgew.edu
Panel Discussant -- Kevin Donnolley, Bridgewater State University, kevin.donnolley@bridgew.edu

While social scientists have long explored the political dimensions of large-scale emergencies, a coherent network of political scientists dedicated to the study of risks, hazards, and crisis has crystallized in the last few decades. These individuals span virtually every subfield of the discipline, from international relations to public policy, public administration to comparative politics. With an eye toward this thriving substream of research, the proposed panel investigates the governance of risk and hazards. Papers will specifically examine risk and hazard governance from an environmental policy perspective, underscoring the various discursive, structural, and political mechanisms that drive policy change in an array institutional settings.

Panel Discussant -- Carly Herold, SUNY Geneseo, carly.herold@gmail.com

 

Plato's Socrates makes virtue the central theme of his philosophic investigations.  But the political and religious context and character of the Socratic project creates a challenge for the unfettered questioning required by philosophy.  The papers on this panel explore the balance between incisive critique and defensive rhetoric struck by Socrates in his examinations of justice, the noble, the good, piety, and the gods presented in Plato's Cleitophon, Republic, Philebus, and Statesman.  Each paper thereby contributes to the project of elucidating the original meaning of political philosophy, with respect both to its subject and its inevitable political consequences.
