I am very pleased to have been invited to speak to groups of both teachers and also students again this December in the Marche region of Italy.
This includes two sessions in the Liceo Nolfi, Fano on December 18th. In the morning I will be talking with students as part of the l’alternanza scuola-lavoro and in the afternoon I will conduct a seminar for teachers entitled: “The value of a humanities education: resilience, authenticity and employability – an Irish perspective”
In the Liceo Giacomo Leopardi, Recanati on December 20th I am pleased to lead a session with teachers on George Orwell.
For any further information please contact:
- Liceo Nolfi, Valentina Foschi
- Liceo Leopardi, Enrica Cerquoni
For a taste of what we may cover in the two Fano sessions, I’d suggest teachers and students might read my whimsical, but seriously-intended poem, Stemming the Tide. This deals with the value of culture and a humanities education against the background of the modern working world and was published in 2014.
