The collaboration between OSL and the Philosophy department began with the CAPITAL Centre in the academic year 2008-9. However, this involved only those students enrolled on the Philosophy and Literature joint honours degree. In the 2 years of this project we aimed to sustain and develop the existing collaboration with Philosophy and Literature but also develop our partnership with Philosophy more generally. Consequently, in 2010-11 we developed, in addition to our established workshops with the 1st Year Philosophy and Literature cohort, an OSL intervention for the whole of Philosophy, Ideas of Freedom. This was an attempt to challenge the preconception that OSL, whilst it is amenable to subjects with a literary component, is not applicable to more abstract disciplines.
