PAUSE

Pause allows space for us to consider some of the big questions made more pressing and visible by Covid-19. Pause is built on the idea that we can pause - reflect - in ways that are both intellectually interesting and socially imaginative. And that this process is both good for ourselves and our communities.

Pause focuses on texts, in the broadest sense of that word, to prompt and anchor our conversations. Each session begins with a (short) reflection from a Homertonian on a (short) text, film or other object, followed by discussion. The programme draws on works of philosophy, literature, science, education, art, economics - in various forms - to help us consider large questions in more interesting ways.

Readings are available on the Pause website

Co-Curated by Dr Robin Bunce and Dr Alison Wood
