The University of Glasgow is delighted to welcome Professor Dierdre McCloskey to the Advanced Research Centre for this public lecture, sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, as part of a programme of events celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Adam Smith.

Deirdre Nansen McCloskey occupies the Isaiah Berlin Chair in Liberal Thought at the Cato Institute, Washington, and is Emerita Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

She has written two dozen books - the latest forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press as God’s Economy: Public Theology for an Age of Innovism - and some 500 scholarly and journalistic pieces in economic theory, economic history, rhetorical theory, philosophy of science, literary criticism, gender studies, theology, ethics, legal and political theory, and statistical theory and practice.

She taught 1968-80 in economics and history at the University of Chicago, and has taught and visited widely, as at Erasmus University of Rotterdam and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton.
