Hermeneutics of Practice at Dundee, 27 October

Hermeneutics of Practice

Date: Friday 27 October 2017

Venue: University of Dundee, Dalhousie Building, Room 2S12 (10-1PM) & Room 2F14 (1-4PM)

The Hermeneutics of Practice is an Art and Philosophy symposium hosted by the School of Humanities. The themes it will investigate will be in honour of Professor Nicholas Davey, who retired from the University of Dundee in 2017. The speakers we have invited, including guest speakers from the University of Westminster and Lancaster University, have previously worked with Nicholas Davey, and are leading experts on contemporary creative practices. Topics to be explored include: what is an artistic practice? How do philosophy and art intertwine when considering notions of practice? How might the notion of hermeneutics aid us when it comes to understanding (artistic) practice?

Tea and coffee will be served in the afternoon, and attendance is free. Please note the change of rooms in the morning and afternoon sessions.
