BOOKSHOP BARNIE WITH Stefan Collini

Wednesday 28th March 2012 6:30pm - 8:15pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Professor Collini challenges the common claim that the priority for universities is to contribute to economic growth. What Are Universities For? offers a compelling argument for completely rethinking the way we see our universities.
But if universities are losing their identity as spaces for intellectual reflection, should we be defending them? Have universities dumbed themselves out of existence? Come join Stefan Collini and Austin Williams at this challenging debate.

Tickets: Free, Email futurecitiesproject@gmail.com to reserve.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, Charing Cross Road
