Literature, Ideas & Society

The aim of this seminar series is to advance research in literary studies, firstly, by exploring the connections between literature and other disciplines such as philosophy, theology, medicine and law, and, secondly, by situating literature in its social context—in relationship to politics, commerce, and both scientific and artistic endeavour.

The seminars are held once a term (three times per year), at 5:15 in Classroom 1, at the Warburg Institute
