  • Acknowledging Equality
22 April, 2016

Professor Teresa Bejan will give a lecture on "Acknowledging Equality" at the 7th Balzan-Skinner Symposium in Cambridge on 22 April 2016.

Professor Bejan, Oriel’s Tutorial Fellow in Politics, was elected as the 2015-16 Balzan-Skinner Fellow in Modern Intellectual History by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) at the University of Cambridge last year.

As part of her Fellowship, Professor Bejan spent much of Hilary Term (or Lent Term as it is known in Cambridge) on leave at the University of Cambridge. On the 22nd April, she will be giving the 7th Annual Balzan-Skinner Lecture, followed by an all-day colloquium at CRASSH.  
 
Professor Bejan’s lecture is titled “Acknowledging Equality”, and will explore ideas of equality as a political principle, a religious commitment, and a social practice in seventeenth-century England.
 
The symposium will take place from 11am – 5.30pm on Friday 22nd April in the Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge. Further details for the symposium, including booking information, can be found here.
