A weekend of discussion

Friday - Sunday 29–31 January 2016


Facilitator:   Sharon Clancy
– working with Joseph Boughey, RWF KW editor-in-chief, and Phil Guy.

The weekend is the second in a series, based on Raymond Williams’ classic book Keywords and will feature a task that may be fulfilled by the end of the weekend – which is to work on  the keywords, as above, sharing insights on each, and to prepare interpretative commentary on the word voluntarism (modelled on RW in follow-through editing) for posting on the RWF KW project web pages.
 As with sessions in Philosophy in Pubs, or Discussions in Pubs, the aim will be a series of democratic discussions in which all can feel able to take part, although no one need feel that they must!
