    • a) Yes, I’m speaking in one session at the PPE and have organised (and will presumably be chairing) another.

      b) The PPEople-in-charge definitely prefer three-person session proposals. Next time, do get in touch with me and my peeps early on and we can try to craft a proposal that would include whatever lamentably non-anarchist topic you’re working on. I’ve gotten pretty good at crafting session titles that identify a unifying thread among seemingly disparate papers.

      c) The statue is indeed in Prague; I took the photo myself, one of the times I was attending the PCPE. Here’s some more info about the statue:
