Something of a local institution, the Manchester-based Human Sciences Seminar has been running for about 25 years. All meetings begin at 5pm, on Thursdays, in the Geoffrey Manton Building, Room 3.35, in Manchester city centre. Last week Alison Stone, from Lancaster University, gave an excellent and well-attended talk entitled Are There Two Sexes? I'll be interviewing Alison later in the year about her forthcoming book Luce Irigaray and the Philosophy of Sexual Difference (CUP).
This coming Thursday, 2nd John Sellars, from Oxford University, will be giving a talk entitled Deleuze’s Stoicism. Should be good. Sellars' book-length study of Stoicism is out from Acumen in April.
