How might the fashion industry show us how to effectively challenge the concept of private greed over public need? Baroness Young of Hornsey will discuss this in her inaugural lecture as Chancellor of the University of Nottingham – Support and solidarity: re-imagining our global world.
Speaking to the university community via Teams on Thursday 15 July, Baroness Young will outline how states are attempting to balance competing interest during a pandemic – constantly needing to consider global versus local need, economic priorities which are weighed against each other, alongside social and health considerations.
The spread of Covid-19 has clearly demonstrated that whilst viruses may not discriminate, this one has highlighted and exacerbated existing inequalities to a significant degree.
The Chancellor’s lecture will be followed by a Q&A session, facilitated by Professor Crewe, Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience) and Professor of Human Geography in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
The Chancellor’s inaugural lecture is public, and all are welcome to join. Book online to be invited to the Teams event, which takes place 11am to 12noon on Thursday 15 July.
