Hope And Delusion: Critical Storytelling For Difficult Times

with Robert Norris

Sunday May 16 
9:00am PDT  | 12:00pm EDT  | 5:00pm BST  |  6:00pm CEST

Robert Norris will open our May Community Call with the presentation ‘Hope and Delusion: Critical Storytelling for Difficult Times.’ When we realise just how much hangs on our attitudes towards the various forms of crisis we are exposed to, we may come to see what our work really is. Hope has a curious story to tell. It reminds us of the wealth we carry within us, but also of how easily we are persuaded to give it all up. This talk attempts to string together disparate stories relating to, but not necessarily about, hope, and aims specifically to raise more questions than it answers. Accompanying the talk there will be breakout and plenary sessions in which participants will be able to articulate their thoughts and responses.

Robert is an independent researcher who teaches English as a foreign language and has wide-ranging interests and experience. He is a regular and valuable contributor in our webinar discussion sessions.
