Last Friday night saw the second My Night with Philosophers take place at the Institut Francais in South Kensington, London. I didn’t actually manage to make it along to much of the night (to my shame: there were some great speakers, sessions, films and music to check out) but I did attend the Ici Londres: Sartre Abroad session. Hats off to anybody who made it through the night and braved the (somewhat long) queues! Great to see so many people getting involved.
Chaired by Sarah Richmond (UCL) the Sartre talk was well attended and had a good mix of speakers and takes on Sartre’s work: Sebastian Gardner (UCL), Katherine Morris (Oxford), Alison Ainley (Anglia Ruskin) and Peter Poellner (Warwick) were with us in London whilst Thomas R. Flynn (Emory) and others (apologies, I didn’t catch who this speaker was) joined the session from Paris. I’m hoping to release some footage of the session over the summer. In the meantime, and with apologies for the non-existent overview of what speakers said/analysis, I give you these pictures!
Did you make it along to the Institut last Friday? Or were you in Paris? Were you in the Sartre session? If so, hope you enjoyed the night and had fun!
