To coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the University of York, the Integrity Project is collaborating with the board of studies for academic practice to organise a series of events entitled Intellectual Integrity? How to be a public intellectual. We are interested in different ways in which the role of public intellectual can be enacted, both inside and outside the academy, and the different pressures, compromises, and opportunities that one aspiring to that role can expect to face.
The events will provide a chance for new and established academics, public figures, post-grads, students, graduates and York residents to discuss the risks and rewards of stepping outside the university or engaging in academic life as a public intellectual.
Intellectual Integrity? will happen during the week of July 8th, to coincide with our graduation ceremonies. If you’d like to be involved there are a number of different ways in which you could do that — from attending a talk, to participating in a workshop, to giving a public lecture, and anything in between. Just email Rachael Wiseman at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your availability and your interest and we’ll take it from there.
