On the Road (Forum for Philosophy)
2 February, 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
From ex-pats and immigrants to gap-year students and Travellers, the movement of people from place to place is perceived in vastly different ways by different people. Why and how is travel politicized and racialized? Why do we travel and what’s the value of it? And what do philosophers have to say about it? We address these questions and explore what the future of travel looks like in a time of climate change and pandemics.
