The Classical Liberalism seminar series is open to faculty of different backgrounds and perspectives, spanning the arts, sciences, and humanities, who are willing to debate ideas and policy issues with rigor, even when doing so may challenge orthodoxy. 

Classical liberalism seminars are held bi-weekly on Thursdays at 10:30 am PT. 

For general inquiries or to be added to the invite list, contact Iván Marinovic. If you would like to be added to the email list, please complete this form.


Richard Hanania is scheduled to give a talk at Stanford Classical Liberalism seminar about his recent book ‘’The Origins of Woke”. Recently, it has been revealed that more than fifteen years ago Hanania wrote, under a pseudonym, some abhorrent ideas. We were not aware of these writings when we invited Hanania. More importantly, Hanania has repudiated his old writings. We take his word and recognize the possibility that he has changed over the past fifteen years. We believe in a world where people can listen, change their views, and contribute productively. We are thus planning to go ahead with Richard Hanania's talk.
