The Duck of Minerva occasionally runs symposia. These consist of a collection of linked pieces that engage with one another on a specific topic, although you will also find series of posts that are united only by their topic. Symposia always involve at least some guest contributors.

Notable examples include a series of companion posts to the European Journal of International Relations special issue on “The End of IR Theory” (2011) and a discussion of Iain M. Banks’ The Hydrogen Sonata (2012).
