Reading Loop this week

David McCallam, from the French department at the University of Sheffield, will be leading the reading loop this week (Weds February 16th, 6pm). He’ll be presenting a manifesto for the arts and humanities, then exploring some key ideas from Voltaire’s Candide. For more details, click on the Reading Loop tab above. You’ll also find a link there to the full online text (in English) of Candide. If you don’t have time to read the whole thing but want to come along, don’t worry – the first five chapters will be enough!
