Philosophy of Education Research Seminar: Representation, Knowledge and Justice


​​​Join us on campus for a thought-provoking seminar from the West Yorkshire branch of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain (PESGB), entitled 'Representation, Knowledge and Justice'. 

About the talk

There is a tension between the everyday understanding of knowledge on the one hand and poetic and narrative representation as means of conveying knowledge on the other due to the disputed role of truth in poems and stories. Rafe suggests that the ambivalent relationship with truth can not only be exploited in both cases, but is particularly useful when applied to conceptions of justice.

The seminar is led by Leeds Trinity University Lecturer in Criminology Rafe McGregor, whose research specialisations are narrative justice and ideologically-motivated crime.

5.30 -7.00pm (Tea and Coffee provided from 5.00pm)
