*The Philosophy of Love (Actually)*
6.30-8pm, Tuesday 4 February 2020
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

This Valentine's Day, what better pursuit than to overthink relationships? Marking the death of Stanley Cavell, we explore the philosophy of film in general, and the rom-com in particular. Can we take philosophical lesson from film? From* Bringing up Baby* and *Roman Holiday* to *My Big Fat Greek Wedding* and *Love Actually*, what makes a film a rom-com, and can this genre teach us anything about the ethics of relationships?

Speakers

Sarah Churchwell, Chair of Public Understanding of the Humanities & Professorial Fellow in American Literature, School of Advanced Study, University of London
Robert Hanks, Journalist and critic
Catherine Wheatley, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies, KCL
