KU Big Read Book Club Week 3: Life Beyond the Comfort Zone
Time & Location
About the Event
Whether it's books, magazines or newspapers that attract you, television or film, pop or classical music, we all have our comfort zones – and these choices tend to shape how we see ourselves and each other. This week we look at differences within our new KU shared-read, which features strongly race, ethnicity, family tradition and how we were brought up. We look at how deciding to extend your habitual ‘reach-fors' can both develop your thinking – and your empathy for others. And we offer suggestions for why you should bother – and what you should consider reaching for instead. Our panel is drawn from a variety of disciplines and involvements within Kingston. What unites them is a shared commitment to being broad-minded, inclusive – and above all curious.
This week will be hosted by Mata Ayoub, Judith Francois, Karen Lipsedge and Helen-Julia Minors, Kingston University.
