Knowledge Sandwich: The Existential Tourist

Knowledge Sandwich: The Existential Tourist

12noon to 1.30pm

Dr Brendan Canavan, Senior Lecturer in Marketing at the University of Huddersfield looks at existential philosophy through the lens of tourism.

We will consider why people go on holiday. Is this for escape or for discovery? Can consumption of experiences help us to find what it means to be oneself and to be happy? Or is this merely good marketing?

A light lunch will be served from 12noon.

This event is free but registration is required
