Upcoming: Why Literature Matters

Elizabeth O'Connell | April 7, 2017

Wednesday 17 May 2017 from 18:00 – 20:00
New College of the Humanities, The Drawing Room

Professor Greg Currie, Professor Bernard Harrison, Dr Penny Pritchard, Sir Roger Scruton and Lesley Chamberlain will each voice their views on whether and how literature matters, and particularly whether it matters to the understanding of human psychology and morality, or whether such things are better left to ‘specialists’. There will then be 30 minutes of discussion between panelists, and the final 30 minutes will be open to reactions from the floor.

Why Literature Matters is hosted by New College of the Humanities and the University of Hertfordshire Philosophy, in association with Bloomsbury Philosophy and The Leavis Society.

Drinks from 6pm, Event starts at 6.30pm
