The Faculty of Arts has arranged a series of events for Directed Studies Week 6-10 November.
During this week, there will not normally be any formal scheduled teaching, but a suite of activities has been organised that are targeted at particular year groups. If you are not engaged in fieldwork, study trips and the like, you are warmly encouraged to sign up for one or more of the following events.
Although events are aimed at particular year groups postgrad students and staff are also welcome to attend.
Please register by Friday 3 November so we can organise catering where appropriate.
The concept of ‘being human’ is a crucial one across the disciplines in the Faculty of Arts. Different departments explore this concept (whether explicitly or otherwise) in a broad range of different ways. During this study day, we will consider a range of different perspectives on ‘being human’ from across the Faculty. Students will then be set the task of producing something that represents for them a perspective on ‘being human’ related to their department (for First Year students) or destination department (for Foundation Year students). There is a danger, however, that we view the concept of ‘being human’ as the domain of the Arts, so at the end of the day a panel of academics from across the university will discuss how the concept features in different faculties. The audience (of students and academics) will be invited to engage in discussion with the panel.
Students can spend this time wherever seems most suitable for the project they are undertaking. The Great Hall will be available for them to use if necessary.
The panel will consist of:
