Event Details

Our London Open Evening will give you the opportunity to find out what is like to be a member of our thriving postgraduate community.

This event is aimed at anyone who is considering a postgraduate degree in economics, psychoanalytic studies, sociology, politics or business. We will have several academics from these departments available for you to speak to on the evening as well as members of our Student Recruitment Team to answer your questions. At this event you will be able to find out more about the benefits of further study and the options available.

Our programme for the evening is: 

6.30pm              Arrival
7pm                  Welcome talk
7.15pm              Keynote lecture - The Politics of Evil by Dr Jeffrey Howard
8pm – 9pm        Networking and refreshments

Keynote lecture - The Politics of Evil by Dr Jeffrey Howard
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has beheaded several British and American hostages in the past year and threatens to kill more hostages unless the West pays up. While France, Germany, and other European nations have paid terror groups like ISIS to free hostages, the UK and US both refuse. Who is right? This interactive talk will explain why we cannot simply appeal to our gut instincts to solve the great moral dilemmas of politics. Confronting evil intelligently depends upon getting clear about both the facts of our social world and the values that should guide us. It depends, in short, on social science.
