Event description

Description

On Tuesday of 3rd week, the 24th of October, we want to start off this academic year with a theme that we are all concerned with in our academic endeavour: Perceptions.
Some try to identify and discuss different perceptions of a certain aspect of human existence, and may strive to question common perceptions of a specific event, others focus on the analytical practices and the role of perceptions in research practices. In one way or another, perceptions are part of our academic endeavour. We are, therefore, delighted to centre this edition of Oriel Talks around this issue:
The talks will begin with a discussion of pain perception, led by Laurenz Casser (MCR). We will then go back in time and history with Tobias Thornes (MCR) to discuss Oriel's Royal patron in 'The Strange Case of Edward II'. Staying in the past, keynote speaker Sarah Bennett (SCR) will address fundamental questions of academic inquiries, as she asks how letters shall be understood and perceived in a literary-critical analysis.


Here’s what awaits you:

5.30 pm — Welcome and Introduction
5.35 pm — Laurenz Casser (MCR): “Where does it hurt?”: Pain Perception and its Problems
5.55 pm — Tobias Thornes (MCR): “The Strange Case of Edward II”
6.15 pm — Keynote: Sarah Bennett (SCR): ‘The “maladie” of editing letters
7.00 pm — Close
7.15 pm — Dinner in Hall
8.30 pm — 2nd Desserts in the MCR


We’re looking forward to welcoming you to an evening of short talks, a high table dinner and second desserts in the MCR!
