We are delighted to announce that at our next meeting, Professor Kathleen Stock and Rosie Kay will lead a discussion on what freedom of expression means for the Arts.
Although now well-known for her public engagement with debates pertaining to gender identity, Professor Stock forged her academic career through work on aesthetics and the artistic imagination in literature, music and the visual arts. As well as publishing numerous articles and chapters, she is the author of the book Only Imagine: Fiction, interpretation, and imagination (Oxford University Press, 2017). Professor Stock will be in conversation with the award-winning choreographer Rosie Kay. Rosie is currently preparing to tour with her show 5 Soldiers.
