Dr Emma Mason (Univerity of Warwick, Department of English and Comp. Lit Studies) and Jo Carruthers (Lancaster University, Department of English and Creative Writing)

Part of: ‘Thinking Fast and Slow: Ruskin Seminar Series 2018’

Working at the time of fracture of the sciences from classical studies, poetry and religion, Ruskin was one of the last great truly interdisciplinary thinkers. This new seminar series will pair speakers from across the arts, humanities and sciences to debate how Ruskin’s works challenged perception, language and perspective, and anticipated modes of thinking today.
