Event: Thinking Spaces - A Rountable Discussion
Thinking Spaces – A Roundtable Discussion
with Matthew Bliss (History of Arts), Tobias Keiling (Philosophy), Hana Samaržija (Philosophy), and Naomi Waltham-Smith (CIM)
(Third instalment of the event series Philosophy Goes Architecture)
Tuesday, 2 May, 5:30pm–7pm (followed by drinks reception)
Venue: S0.11 (ground floor Social Sciences)
Doing philosophy is an embodied activity: it is always someone who thinks, and so thoughts are had, expanded, and written down somewhere, often in human-made surroundings that reflect societal values, ideological currents, and particular interests. How do these spaces interact with the individuals that populate them? How does spatial design interfere with intellectual labour? How does the history of buildings leave a trace on the products of the mind?
The invited speakers are asked to respond to these and similar questions, drawing on their own research and preferred approaches. They are particularly encouraged to relate their answers to our shared experience as people who work and think in the English Midlands, in Coventry, on Warwick Campus, at their respective departments.
All Warwick Philosophy students and staff (permanent, sessional, administrative) are invited to attend and join the discussion!
