Future of Work summer series

A series of informal webinars, for Future of Work members to unwind, and discuss and debate ideas outside of the pressures of teaching and publishing

  • 8 Jul 2020, 3.00pm to 11 Aug 2020, 4.00pm BST (GMT +01:00)
  • This is an online event.

With the pandemic shutting down conference season, Future of Work are hosting a webinar series to bridge the gap and help colleagues stay connected during lockdown.

These events will be relaxed and informal. They'll provide an opportunity for staff to put their feet up, have a chat and explore ideas, rather than research - all for the pleasure of discussion and debate. We hope these events will help us unwind, and relieve the pressures of publishing and teaching that will return in the coming year.

Dates and Topics

  • 8 July: Professor Mike Lewis will present The Path to Power, the first instalment in Robert Caro’s biography of Lyndon B. Johnson.
  • 15 July: Mairi Maclean will present The Myth of the Eternal Return by Mircea Eliade, which looks at the beliefs and rituals of a variety of archaic religious cultures.
