The John Locke Society (JLS) grew organically out of a series of Locke Workshops, with the first being hosted by Ruth Boeker (UC Dublin) at St. Andrews in 2012. Below you will find information about upcoming and past Locke Workshops. Regular workshops on different aspects of Locke’s thought have been important to the Society since its founding.
