May Day, invariably distinguished by much buoyant exuberance early in the morning here in Oxford, has been celebrated in the West since Roman times. In fact, May Day festivities are deeply embedded in Western folklore.
To mark May Day, and further to explore its emblematic meaning, the Oxford Men's Group is delighted to invite all interested persons to attend this public lecture by the Welshman Ewan Jones.
Ewan Jones is a sociologist who is known for his public speaking about male issues. Much influenced by Jungian perspectives, and also in debt to Heidegger's focus on practical engagement, Ewan Jones offers perceptive and penetrating insight into the mythology of the West.
Ewan Jones' public lecture will last for fifty minutes, followed by a Q&A session. Like all Oxford Men's Group public lectures, the conversation continues afterwards in a nearly public house.
This event is free and all are welcome to attend.
