Community Conference : Day of talks and discussions April 2021
Very sadly, due to circumstances outside our control, our day of talks and discussions cannot now take place this April as we’d hoped. Instead we plan to run two series of free one-off ‘Talks, Thoughts and Conversations’ via Zoom through the autumn and winter months so you can enjoy our speakers in a different way. These will take place on the first Thursday evening of each month: October 7th, November 4th and December 2nd this year and February – April 2022.
Apart from Jackie Kay, our autumn speakers remain the same as would have been in our conference and may include others in conversation with them:
- Julian Baggini, the popular and thought-provoking philosopher asking fundamental questions about identity, ‘Who do we think we are – and why?’;
- Philip Tonner from Glasgow University in conversation raising questions and ideas about notions of freedom historically and today, in ‘Scotus, Freedom and the Declaration of Arbroath’;
- David Stewart from Northumbria University considering questions and significances of borders and borderlands in ‘Shifting Sands and Quaking Bogs: Border Landscapes and Romanticism’.
Winter Series 2022: We have some exciting ideas for the Winter 2022 series and will post up details about our speakers and topics as soon as they’re firmed up.
Please mark up your calendars for 7.15 on Thursdays Oct 7th, Nov 4th and Dec 2nd and wherever you are, just ‘zoom-in’ and come and join us!
HOW TO BOOK TO GET THE FREE ZOOM LINK WILL BE POSTED UP NEARER THE TIME.
Our annual David Hume Food for Thought Dinner
We hope that by April 2022 we can hold our David Hume Dinner again and invite you to enjoy the best of cuisine and wine in true Humean style! We know how much Hume delighted in these shared pleasures with friends and don’t we ache for them again? We hope that come next Spring we can meet up for a really joyous and memorable evening together.
With every good wish for a much more inspirational year and all that lies ahead!
