The next in the Leeds University classics department's series of lunchtime talks. They are always interesting and are very informal; one of the most regular attendees is a dog. Obviously anyone who saw Purcell's opera performed by Opera North earlier in the year and/or is familiar with Tolstoy's tragic heroine through book or film will appreciate this one probably won't be a bundle of laughs. However, it's bound to be intellectually stimulating, which is what the group's all about.
What will the future be like? Why do bald dogs have bad teeth? Can the economy grow forever? What is a good life? What does sustainability mean? Tell me, who is Ptolemy? What's 'the alternative'? What on earth is happening to our weather? Can vegetables be exciting? If you're interested in a little bit of everythinque, please join us.
