10th Annual Political Studies Association/British International Studies Association Conference
The conference is concerned with teaching politics in higher education. The theme for the conference is based on a lecture given by Max Weber (1864 - 1920) to the Free Students Union of Bavaria in Munich 1919 during the German Revolution, when Munich was regarded as Bavarian Socialist Republic. The title of the lecture was 'Politics as a Vocation'.
The lecture is famous for raising issues concerned with politics as a vocation. The issues dealt with in this lecture could usefully be applied to consider teaching politics as a vocation now.
