Public Engagement and Public Service

In December 2014 I was involved in a pilot study for a review of research in the Czech Republic; I was a member of the Philosophy sub-panel for REF2014. In May 2017 I will speak, along with Roger Scruton and others, at an event in London organised by Bloomsbury Publishers on Why Literature Matters.

I currently work with book clubs and reading groups in the Nottingham area, trying to find out what people value in the experience of reading. I'm always keen to make contact with other groups of readers.
