Resonate Meeting for Postgraduates
S0.52

What is Resonate?

Resonate is a weekly meeting for students where they can feel safe and comfortable sharing whatever hardships, stress and mental health matters that are troubling them. The group is strictly confidential and is open to Philosophy students.

What happens at Resonate?

At Resonate, students are encouraged to talk, listen and share with one another. The idea behind Resonate is that subjects which relate to mental health and well-being are difficult to talk about, yet they sometimes need to be aired for people to express themselves and for others to listen and connect with what those around them are going through, and so we want to make that possible for postgraduate students at the University of Warwick.

Is Resonate a professional service?

No. Resonate is set up by students for students. We currently have no budget, so we cannot employ individuals to provide professional mental health guidance. What Resonate offers is a space in which students can feel comfortable in sharing whatever it is that they’re going through at that time. We will, of course, provide as much help as is possible in the form of literature from local charities and contacts for charities such as Samaritans.

Who can attend Resonate?

Any postgraduate students studying within the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick are welcome to attend.

Where and when does Resonate meet?

Resonate meets in S0.52 every Tuesday at 4pm

Do I need to book ahead of time?

Don’t worry about letting us know that you want to attend, just turn up at the start of the group’s session.

Who will know that I am attending Resonate?

We will not be sharing any information about your attending Resonate with any members of staff or any student bodies - it is to be run confidentially. In certain circumstances, such as if there is a danger to yourself or others, appropriate authorities may need to be contacted. Otherwise, if you want to share that you attend, then that’s fine (of course, you must not disclose the attendance or contributions of others).

Who can I send questions to?

You can send questions to me, Shaun, at shaun.stevenson@warwick.ac.uk. I will do my best to respond as soon as possible.

Hegel Reading Group: The Science of Logic
S2.73

We are a group dedicated to collectively reading the core works of the German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel (1770 – 1831). Our goal is to facilitate a better understanding of the often difficult contents of Hegel’s texts and to provide a forum for meaningful engagement between his thought and contemporary questions. Although we are primarily made up of postgraduate students working on Hegel, we happily welcome non-philosophers and beginners in Hegel’s philosophy to join us at any point. Term 1 and 2.

This term we will be working on the second part of Hegel's Science of Logic, the Doctrine of Essence. Please bring a copy of the book for the session. We will mainly use the Di Giovanni translation, but there are usually no problems if people bring other translations (Miller, etc.).

London Warwick Mind Forum meeting
UCL

The next London Warwick Mind Forum meeting will take place at UCL on the 8th of November 2018.

 

The network consists of graduate students of the University of Warwick, King's College London, University College London, London School of Economics and Birkbeck, who share an interest in the mind. The forum will consist of four talks of 30 minutes each followed by respective responses of 10-15 minutes and Q&A sessions. You can check out previous editions here: https://lwmindforum.wordpress.com/.

 

To apply to give a talk, please send an abstract of 200-300 words ready for anonymous review to m.corrado@warwick.ac.uk by 23:59, 24th of October. The abstracts will be reviewed by members of one of the other institutions participating in the forum. Selected speakers will be notified by the 27th of October and will need to provide a full ~3000 words paper by the 30th of October, which will be sent to a respondent. All topics and all kinds of approaches pertinent to the study of the mind as broadly construed are suitable. Since one of the aims of the forum is to share work in progress, you do not need to have a polished paper in order to present.

 

The Warwick philosophy department offers contributions towards travel expenses, if you wish to attend the conference.

 

To register your interest in acting as a respondent, or if you have any questions, please contact the Warwick-based organiser Maria Corrado (on the email address given above).
