'Education in Challenging Times' Seminar Series 2014/15
The Faculty of Education is pleased to introduce its new Seminar Series surrounding the broad theme of 'Education in Challenging Times' in the academic year 2014/15. The seminars intend to be thought provoking as well as informative and will take place throughout the academic year. The seminars will be delivered by a range of both internal and external speakers. As part of the series, the Faculty of Education will host a number of Professorial Lectures which will fit within the same theme.
There will be an opportunity to use material developed for the Seminar Series as the basis of chapters in an edited book of the same name and further information about plans for the book will be published very soon.

'Newman in Context' Seminar Series
The Faculty of Education, in association with the John Henry Newman Studies Project, based at Liverpool Hope University, is delighted to announce the 'Newman in Context' Seminar Series in the academic year 2014/15. The series aims to explore various aspects of John Henry Newman's religious, social, political and educational thought, his impact and legacies.
The Seminars will take place every three to four weeks throughout the academic year and both internal and external speakers will contribute. We have a range of speakers who seek to embed aspects of Newman's life and thought within their cultural and historical context and relate them to the most important events, developments and movements of their time. Topics include:
- Newman’s educational thought, particularly on universities and higher education
- Newman’s writings, theological, historical, educational, curricular
- Newman’s social and political thought
- Newman’s impact within his own lifetime and since
- Legacies – theological, religious, social, political, cultural
