About Smith@300

Smith@300 is a project funded by The John Templeton It has a single overarching aim: to bring Adam Smith into the conversation about the problems facing our society in the twenty-first century. We will inspire a discussion about Adam Smith and what people of all philosophical and political commitments can learn from his work. Promoting an informed understanding of Smith and his approach to morality and markets is at the heart of this project.

2023 is the 300th anniversary of the birth of Adam Smith and is a timely opportunity to create renewed interest in of one of the world's most well referenced but poorly understood moral philosophers and political economists. Smith@300 will mark this anniversary with a place-based yet globally impactful series of scholarly activities that will provide a lasting legacy demonstrating how Smith can inform contemporary debates on morals and markets.

As a postdoctoral associate on the project, you will be working directly with Craig Smith, Adam Smith Senior Lecturer in the Scottish Enlightenment at the University of Glasgow.  For further information on Craig, please click here.
