Postgraduate Liberal Arts Lecture Series
University of Winchester
Semester 1 2018-19
Liberal Arts at Winchester is putting on a weekly lecture series to which all and only postgraduate students (MA, PhD, PGCE etc.) are invited. Commitment is not needed for the whole series, you are free to attend all, some or none, as you choose. Below is the list of lectures. It may take more than 1 week to get through some of the lectures, so we are not putting precise dates next to each one. We will be using our website for announcements and any revised timings and dates, so if you want details on the next lecture at any part of the semester, including the location each week, please go to this address:
The lectures are not based in any academic discipline, nor are they based in any kind of specialist knowledge. The intention is that they be wide-ranging, interesting, challenging and controversial, but assuming no prior knowledge beforehand, and needing no reading in advance. There are no essays to be produced from the lectures, so the hope is they will be interesting and enjoyable in their own right.
The lectures will run at 6pm on Monday evenings.
