Workshop 1: Reflections from Anna

It was a true privilege to be able to participate in the Beauty Demands workshop on 6 March. Having space to present ideas that I had been working with on a rather ‘unconventional’ philosophical concept with a group of experts was helpful both on a pedagogical and personal level.

My university department is quite small, so having time to receive constructive criticism and discuss ideas was very welcome.  It was equally (if not more!) beneficial to listen to the presentations given by other researchers.  The breadth of the issue truly came out through these discussions, as did the topic’s importance to philosophical, legal and cultural dialogue.  Finishing off the day with an artist’s interpretation of beauty in the layering of aging was both moving and engaging.

Truly a joy to be a part of this event! I do look forward to hearing more as the workshops continue.
