Freedom

 

26th - 27th March 2024

On the theme of freedom. 

Working with academics from the disciplines of:

  •  Archaeology
  • Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
  • Geography
  • History of Art
  • Linguistics
  • Philosophy 
  • Theology

Participants in this residential will be given the opportunity, through independent research, academic sessions and group work with peers, to explore how a degree in these subject, might help them to contribute to the process of providing answers to the big questions of the future.

The residential will combine a series of workshops, and group activities, that will:

(1) demonstrate the variety of careers to which a degree in these ‘small subjects’ can lead, helping to show that one can do more with a History of Art, AMES (etc) degree than become a teacher of these subjects;

(2) demonstrate these apparently niche disciplines are actually at the heart of some of the biggest contemporary issues of today; and

(3) demonstrate the value of inter-disciplinary work, and thus, the benefits that a University Education which provides opportunities for such work, can bring.  

 

Eligibility:

 

  • interest in inter-disciplinary study
  • attendance at a UK state school
  • Year 12 England and Wales, Year 13 Northern Ireland, S5 Scotland

In case we are over-subscribed, we will make selections based on our Widening Participation Policy.
