Lockdown means different things to different people, but one thing it has meant to all of us is more time with ourselves. How can the Humanities help us reflect on our grave new world? What lessons can we learn from the past as we look to a future beyond lockdown? What can culture teach us about quarantine?
Drawing on examples from the history of literature, philosophy, and cinema, scholars from the University of Kent's Division of Arts and Humanities will discuss the value of thought in the age of confinement. If the UK's government's advice is to 'stay alert', perhaps the Arts can help teach us what this means.
The webinar, which is scheduled to last one hour, will be recorded and placed on our You Tube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/TheBSIS
