SOPHIA is an Atlanta-area political theory colloquium, established in 2012 by a group of political theorists and philosophers at Morehouse College and Spelman College. The series, which hosts three or four talks each year and at various venues in the city, caters to a community of students and scholars — together with working professionals and political figures — who are interested in broad public policy issues from the perspective of underlying theoretical and philosophical presuppositions. For more information about SOPHIA aims and objectives, please see the series mission statement. Dr. Kitpon Jensen¬†is Convenor for year 2016-2017. The current SOPHIA Committee consists of Dr. Al-Yasha Williams (Spelman), Dr. Shay Welch (Spelman), Dr. Andrew Douglas (Morehouse), Dr. Kipton Jensen (Morehouse), and Dr. Preston King (Morehouse).

The 2016-2017 schedule is now available!  Please see the link above.

  1. Very proud to see this. I was a political science major during my student days at Morehouse. We had an informal version of this esteemed gathering. Carry-on.
