Convenor: Dr Hannah Dawson (University of Edinburgh)
Following his award of a Balzan Prize, Professor Quentin Skinner established the annual Balzan-Skinner lecture and associated colloquium in modern intellectual history, to be held under the joint auspices of the Faculty of History and CRASSH. The inaugural lecturer is Dr Hannah Dawson of the University of Edinburgh, who has chosen as her theme the normativity of nature. She will examine the relationship between nature and morality in early enlightenment thought. A triumvirate of scholars will then explore certain key moments in the development of the theme: Professor Christopher Gill (University of Exeter) on Stoicism, Professor Sarah Hutton (University of Aberystwyth) on Cambridge Platonism, and Dr Lena Halldenius (Malm? University) on Mary Wollstonecraft.
