Inquiring Minds

Jersey College for Girls Inquiring Minds Lecture Series

The Inquiring Minds lecture series is designed to enhance our students’ understanding of a range of issues and to expose them to an education beyond the constraints of the curriculum; the lectures also provide learning opportunities for the wider community of Jersey.

After several successful years, the series is now well established at the College and it continues to attract inspirational speakers, including outstanding practitioners of diverse academic and artistic disciplines.

In the academic year 2015-2016, we have welcomed lecturers including Professor David J Hand, who spoke on ‘The Improbability Principle’, and Dr Donna Youngs, who explored the development of investigative psychology.

A number of our speakers join us through the College’s collaboration with the island’s University Lecture series (for more information, see http://www.jicas.ac.je/events). Most recently, the College has hosted Dr Katerina Deligiori, who delivered a lecture entitled ‘Autonomy and the New Paternalism’, and Professor John Roe, who spoke on Shakespeare’s Othello.

Parents and members of the public who are interested in the subjects that our speakers will explore are warmly encouraged to attend events in the series.

Please consult the calendar on the website for details of upcoming events or, alternatively, email Simon Milner at s.milner@jcg.sch.je for further details.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of Jersey International Business School, who are part-sponsors of the Inquiring Minds programme.
