Undergraduate Welcome: Loving the Humanities and Social Sciences: An Introductory Symposium and Free BBQ Lunch

When: Thursday 25 February, 11am-12pm
Where: Great Hall, Quadrangle.

What is love? What does it mean to have love for another? How about love for oneself? Can you love your job, a pet, a city? The universal meaning of love varies between cultures, has travelled across the ages, and can come to mean different things for each of us. Join academics from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to help answer some of these questions and perhaps even ask new ones in a lively exchange of ideas and opinions. The events itself is taken in the spirit of philosophical debate, similar to the one recorded by Plato around 385BCE. As one of the most famous texts in Western Civilization, we thought we would let it inspire us in order to present a fun and fascinating introduction into the work of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. You will not only get to hear about some incredible ideas on the universal topic of love – but also see how various disciplines work and how they might approach a phenomenon as nebulous, awe-inspiring and life changing as love. Bring a friend, a new or old love, or even a foe and experience all that is on offer in one of the largest faculties on campus.

Following the Undergraduate Welcome in the Great Hall, all First Year students in Arts and Social Sciences are invited to join Mentors and students from the Sydney Arts Students' Society for a BBQ lunch on the Botany Lawn next to the Great Hall. Grab a sausage sizzle or vegie sandwich and cold drink before settling on the lawn for a chat with mentors and other students!
