Workshop: “Educating Wellbeing: The Contributions of Philosophy and Religion”

An afternoon workshop devoted to critical pedagogy, the well-being agenda and the contributions the disciplines of philosophy and religious studies can make to these issues. We will be exploring how philosophy, philosophy of religion, practical theology and religious studies can enrich contemporary discourse about education in general and the pedagogy of happiness in particular. This event is the second in a series organised by the Philosophy and Religious Practiceresearch network, co-organised by the Philosophy Department at the University of Liverpool, the Centre for Faiths and Public Policy at the University of Chester and the Department of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Liverpool Hope University. The event is free and will take place in Seminar Room 1 of the Department of Philosophy (7 Abercromby Square; building no. 143 on the campus map) on Friday 10th February beginning at 1.00. To register for the event in advance, please email Daniel Whistler with your name and affiliation (there will also be an opportunity to register on the day).
