Philomathia Social Sciences Research Programme


The annual Philomathia Symposium represents the culmination of a year’s worth of interdisciplinary conversations that begin first in the Philomathia Forum – a series of individual workshops that link topically to the Symposium’s chosen theme. It is our hope that the fora generate debate and raise questions that can then lead to a productive and engaging Symposium.
