Loving the Humanities and Social Sciences – An introductory symposium
Around 385BCE the Greek philosopher Plato recorded a discussion that took place in Athens amongst friends on what was the true nature of love. Each of the speakers on the night presented wildly different views of love based on their own experiences of life. 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.

In this lively debate, some of the most dynamic academics at Sydney will present their wildly different views on love, and they will do so through the prism of their own academic specialties. You will not only get to hear about some incredible ideas – but also see how various disciplines work and how they might approach a phenomenon as nebulous, awe-inspiring and life changing as love.

All new undergraduate students to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences are welcome to attend this event. The event will be followed by a BBQ Lunch on the Botany Lawn. No need to RSVP to the symposium or BBQ.

When: Thursday 26 February, 11.30am-12.30pm
Where: The symposium will be held in The Great Hall followed by BBQ lunch on Botany Lawn (from 12:30pm onwards)
