Rothbard Graduate Seminar (Sponsored by Alice J. Lillie)

June 12-17 2011

Auburn Alabama

The purpose of the Rothbard Graduate Seminar is to provide an intense study of Misesian and Rothbardian economic analytics, along with the substantive conclusions of that research in related fields.

The core text is Human Action: Scholars Edition, which each student will receive complimentary.  Additional required reading is The Place of Human Action in the Development of Modern Economic Thought.

Attendance is limited to a small number of exceptional students who are pursuing graduate degrees in economics, history, philosophy, law, political science, and business disciplines and who seek a career in academia or research.

Applicants must be current graduate students or provide a copy of graduate school acceptance for the fall.   By May 24, students and Observers should email one question or comment addressing an issue raised in each section of the schedule below.



To apply for a scholarship complete this application and save it as a pdf to your computer.  Email the pdf along with a copy of your student ID, an informal copy of your transcripts, one academic letter of recommendation, and a writing sample (can be a paper from a class related to economics, philosophy, history).  Or fax to 734-448-8148.  Scholarships include sessions, meals, dormitory room, and a copy of the text. 

Application deadline is March 18, 2011.  NOTE:  Due to overwhelming response, the notification date for all applicants has been extended to March 31. 

A very limited number of Observer slots are available, with a registration fee of $1800 for Members, and $875 for full-time teachers and professors, which includes sessions and meals, but not accommodations.  Please contact Patricia Barnett for details and availability.
