Colloquium 17 June 2020, University of Warwick
The University of Warwick is hosting a one-day colloquium, jointly funded by the British Academy and the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, to explore therapeutic philosophical traditions in light of educational issues, and in response to calls by policy makers that schools should be teaching about mental health. Philosophers, psychoanalysts and education researchers will bring their experience and expertise to the conversation. There will be a special focus on Wittgenstein and Stanley Cavell.
Speakers: Josh Cohen (Goldsmiths), Richard Gipps (Oxford), Joanna Moncrieff (UCL), Adrian Skilbeck (IOE/Winchester), Paul Standish (IOE), Emma Williams (Warwick), and ‘in conversation’ with Adam Phillips (psychoanalyst and writer).
Spaces are limited, so early registration is encouraged.
There is no fee for attending the colloquium. Lunch will be provided.
Organised by Emma Williams, Centre for Education Studies, University of Warwick.
