The 2014 New Enlightenment Lecture will be delivered by Professor Rae Langton (University of Cambridge), who was Professor of Moral Philosophy at Edinburgh from 1999-2004, and the first woman to be appointed Professor of Philosophy in Edinburgh.
The lecture will be preceded by a roundtable discussion on issues surrounding underrepresentation in philosophy. Everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to attend and participate in this informal discussion. And a festive (and subsidised) dinner will be held at Field restaurant immediately after the lecture.
