John V. Clyne Lectures at Green College: The Future of University Study—Ideas in Dialogue
Where do the students live? Where do they study? Starting from the ambitious dormitory building project at UBC, we will explore two ideas about university study: isolation and permeability. The concept of urban epistemology will conclude the lecture, offering reflection on how students also learn in the city. This is the first in a series of three lectures: (1) Where Are The Students? - January 15, (2) How Will We Study? - February 12 and (3) When Is Study For? - March 12.
