Calling all free thinkers! Applications are now open for 'Thinking: a free introduction' [Editor's note - applications now closed]
Applications are open [Editor's note - applications now closed] for the new IF project course, Thinking: a free introduction. The course will begin in January 2016, thanks to the support of the Big Lottery Fund.
Thinking. Everyone does it, but what does it mean to think critically?
We are offering a 10-week interdisciplinary course in university-level arts and humanities that will introduce how writers, historians and philosophers think - and how the methods they use enable us to interpret the world and the complexities of human experience.
The arts and humanities are how we make sense of the world and try to answer the questions of the day. This course aims to equip students with the tools to become critical thinkers and to provide a foundation for further study.
Anyone can apply to take an IF course though priority will be given to applicants aged 18-30 who have not already studied for a degree. The course will take place on Monday and Thursday evenings, 6.30pm - 8.30pm from January to March 2016.
The syllabus will include lectures from senior academics such as Professor Rosemary Ashton, guided discussion groups (seminars) and sessions in galleries, archives and concert halls.
Join us in January to explore how the methods and techniques of the arts and humanities give us practical tools to be critical, and free, thinkers.
