University of Surrey School of Arts Graduate Seminars:
Interdisciplinary Engagements with Philosophy
All sessions will be held in the SEEDpod in the Nodus Centre, Stag Hill Campus, University of Surrey
Starting in January 2013, The School of Arts at the University of Surrey will be hosting a monthly discussion-based seminar, focused on texts by key figures in philosophy and ‘theory’. Texts will be chosen and introduced by members of staff from the School and across the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences more broadly. Following the staff member’s introduction, each session will then open out into a group discussion about the text and its interdisciplinary implications.
All staff and postgraduate students are warmly invited to attend and participate.
Texts will be confirmed asap and distributed to all participants to read prior to the sessions.
