Event info

Professorial Lecture: Johnny Rodger

Newly appointed Professor Johnny Rodger will give a public lecture on Thursday 5 March at 18:00 in the Reid Auditorium.

Is justice possible in Scotland? Where, and under what material conditions?

The Art and Design disciplines can make unexpected contributions to the understanding and critique of a broad spectrum of civil life. Through a wholehearted engagement with the qualities of places and things in our daily lives we bring ourselves into relation with the world at the various levels of our being. Just so The Glasgow School of Art has long been an important presence and had a significant operation as a consciousness-expanding institution in Glaswegian, Scottish and wider European civil society. In his inaugural professorial lecture at the School, Johnny Rodger carries on that tradition by exploring the symbols of justice and the spaces where justice is supposed to take place in Scotland.

Event has now finished, but the film of Professor Rodger's full lecture will be available soon.

Below: Trailer for the public lecture, by GSA alumna Kate Burton.
