On Progress – Thursday, November 22, 2012

Dear friends and colleagues,


It with great pleasure that I invite you to the last Junior Fellow Lecture of the year. Please join us at 7.45pm in the Massey College Upper Library  this coming Thursday the 22nd of November.


The Junior Fellow Lecture will continue the WIDEN (Workshops for Interdiscipline Exchange and Novelty) format, and will see three of our very own Junior Fellows come together on a common theme to discuss their research and find out what they have in common.


The theme of this session is “Progress” and will feature:

Kristina Francescutti (History) on ‘Stasis and the City: Progress versus Preservation in Venice’


Bryan Reece (Philosophy) ‘On the Nature of Innovation’


Diana Withrow (Public Health) on ‘The Changing Burden of Cancer Worldwide: Progression in the absence of progress’


This session will be moderated by our visiting scholar Sanjay Khanna.
