April 23, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans Department of Economics, along with the Institute for Humane Studies, will host "Weekend Exploring Liberty Conference" this weekend, April 23-25, on Loyola’s main campus.

The IHS arranged for a team of guest lecturers from a variety of institutions and disciplinary backgrounds to present original research and views on topics of liberty, economics and the role of governance in a free society.

“This will be a great weekend for everyone involved,” said Dan Damico, Ph.D., assistant professor of economics in Loyola’s College of Business. “This conference is open to anyone in the greater New Orleans area interested in learning and discussing these ideas for the weekend.”

The mission of IHS is “to support the achievement of a freer society by discovering and facilitating the development of talented students, scholars and other intellectuals who share an interest in liberty and who demonstrate the potential to change the climate of opinion to one more congenial to the principles and practice of freedom.”
