Crisis and Control
How should we respond to the multitude of crises that seem to define the contemporary age? Do we need to ‘take back control’? What would that really mean? We all face moments of crisis, but in the world today crisis seems to have become near permanent state, infecting every aspect of our public and private lives.
The 2020 Philosophy Public Lecture Series will explore crisis in family life, in our prison system, in political rhetoric and our emotions, and ask why so many people today are turning to the ancient philosophy of stoicism for answers.
Owing to the ongoing national dispute between Universities UK (UUK) and the University and College Union (UCU), and resultant strike action by members and supporters of UCU, ‘Who’s In Charge of Our Emotions?’ with Dr Birgit Breidenbach has been cancelled. The event will not be rescheduled as part of this series, we apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.
In light of the concern relating to COVID-19 and the increased necessity to contain the spread of infection, UEA has taken the decision to postpone public events.
We place great value on our public events programme and will continue to monitor the situation carefully, making every effort to reschedule cancelled events wherever possible. We apologise for the disappointment caused, and we very much look forward to bringing you notice of new dates as soon as possible.
