Mcmaster Conference of Legal Philosophy - 2012

Queridos amigos!
Con mucha alegría los quiero incentivar a participar en la Conferencia de Filosofía del Derecho de Mcmaster que se va a celebrar en mayo 15-17 de 2011. Me gustaría ver la participación de colegas de Latinoamérica. Este es el evento de filosofía analítica del derecho más importante de norte-américa. Es un evento especializado en temas de filosofía del derecho, filosofía política y derecho constitucional, y sus participantes son principalmente estudiantes de maestría y doctorado. El evento del año pasado fue todo un éxito (ver info, aquí), y se augura lo mismo para el próximo. Si alguien tiene preguntas sobre la participación en este evento, sobre el viaje a Canadá, la Universidad (aquí) la estadía en Hamilton, no duden en hacerme saber. De nuevo, les digo que me gustaría ver colegas hispanohablantes por estas tierras.
Esta es la info:
