Organised by the Warwick Philosophy and the Arts MA Student Committee

The University of Warwick’s postgraduate Philosophy and the Arts programme invites you to the Thinking Art one-day graduate conference on 3 May 2018, where we will be joined by Professor Matthew Kieran (University of Leeds), Gianluca Lorenzini (University of Warwick), Daisy Dixon (University of Cambridge), Jennifer Hankin (Loughborough University) and Samantha Groenestyn (University of Vienna).

Matthew Kieran is Professor of Philosophy and the Arts at University of Leeds. He was awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship in 2012 to start work on a long-term project on creativity. Professor Kieran will deliver a talk on The Character of Creativity which will develop aspects of his recent work on the nature of creativity and what it is to be a creative person (in particular thinking about the nature of creative virtue). Professor Kieran’s broader interests range over art, psychology and ethics. He is the author of many articles and books, including Revealing Art (2005).
