Welcome Season

Introducing the Inspiring Minds Welcome Season

The Inspiring Minds Welcome Season of events is our six-week online programme of reading groups, film screenings and discussions, roundtables, book launches and workshops, put together by staff and students from across the Faculty of Arts & Humanities.

It is a place where we can get together to read, watch, think and discuss – beyond the classroom and across humanities disciplines – by addressing the most urgent themes of the world today.

Here, Tim Beasley-Murray, co-curator of Inspiring Minds, introduces the season and encourages you to get involved and get inspired.
