In this lecture, “Neoliberal Policies and the Liberal Arts: The Singaporean Case”, Professor Pietro Giordan will discuss the context in which the liberal arts in Singapore have recently been given some legitimacy and financial support and how, in spite of this, a more subtle form of censorship has been put in place by the neoliberal establishment.

Some remarks on the cultural specificity of the Singaporean case will be made.

Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
