Session 7 : European Ideas And Ideals

9pm – 10pm

Researchers, writers and philosophers are called upon in various contexts to discuss the challenges that face the European intellectual public sphere. Are these challenges comparable to those of previous decades? What was the role of intellectuals in the historical construction of our European ideals? How did and does that intellectual sphere deal with the challenges of inclusivity? With those of anti-intellectualism?

Speakers include Christophe Charle (Université Paris 1), Sudhir Hazareesingh (Oxford), Laurent Jeanpierre (Université Paris 8), Ludovic Frobert (Maison française d’Oxford). Chaired by Lucie Campos (Institut français, London).
