The "From Homer to Quran" Discovery Theme and The Humanities Institute invite you to a lecture by Edith Hall (King's College, London) titled, "Aristotle at the Movies: Learning about Virtue Ethics through Cinema."
Professor Hall is a Hellenist who has worked and published on a wide variety of topics in classical literature and its continuing impact in the modern world, most recently on Aristotelian ethics. In her paper, she will explore why we need them in the 21st century and how well-known movies can help us in this. She just has been awarded a grant from the British Arts and Humanities Research Council as Leadership Fellow in a project on “Teaching Classical Civilization: Recording the Past and Fostering the Future.”
All are welcome; reception to follow.
