20 October, Colin Whatmough: “Power in the Balance”
The emergence of what might be called Earth Incorporated, is shifting economic power from the West to the East; China is overtaking the US as the Centre of Gravity in the global economy.
27 October, Ginna Hastings: “The Joy of William Wordsworth’s Poetry “
3 November, Rev. Daniel Jantos: “Precariously balanced on the threshold of the future.”
The title is taken from a review of George Bernard Shaw’s play Saint Joan. Shaw is said to have been interested in understanding courage as a “sacred aspect” – vulnerable to the forces of reaction and stasis. The talk will explore Shaw’s choice of a girl, young and brave, historically destined to save those of position and piety from themselves.
