Civic Health Lectures

I've organised a series of public talks on the idea of civic health:

Civic health: four public lectures on living well together

What is a sick society, and what would a healthy society be? What relations does civic health require between citizens? What must citizens be or do or have to live well together? What does the current civic health agenda in politics have to say about these questions, and is it adequate?

Visiting and local philosophers will reflect on these questions in this series of free public lectures, organised by the Department of Politics, Philosophy, & Religion at Lancaster University and funded by the Royal Institute of Philosophy.

1. 730pm, 9 May: Dr Derek Edyvane, University of Leeds: ‘Civic Health & Civic Vitality’
2. 730pm, 16 May: Dr Sam Clark, Lancaster University: ‘Good Work’
3. 730pm, 23 May: Dr Kerri Woods, University of York: ‘Solidarity, Vulnerability, & Civic Health’
4. 730pm, 30 May: Professor John O’Neill, Manchester University: ‘Living Well Within Limits’

Venue: The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster

Free & open to all
