Outside the Square – new lecture series for everybody

outside the square

Hosted by the new Dean of Arts and Social Sciences, Professor Annamarie Jagose, and in collaboration with Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Outside the Square is a new series in which six expert panels will address questions that speak to the heart of what it means to be a person today.

There’ll be drinks. There’ll be catering by the renowned chefs of Spice Ally.

There’ll also be a linguist, a philosopher, a satirist, an economist (HEY, THIS IS ME!), a playwright, a journalist, a teacher, an environmentalist, a technologist, an artistic director, a forensic psychologist, a CEO of happiness, and a social media troll.
