Philosophy in prison
I run and co-deliver a the London Philosophy in Prison project: programme of introductory philosophy courses in London prisons, hosted at King's College London. The courses introduces students to core philosophical topics and skills. They are primarily discussion based, with the aim of making the courses accessible irrespective of formal education and/or English literacy . As such, the project functions to broaden educational access in London’s prisons. Many of these courses have been funded by King’s, particularly the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and King's Service. Other funders include the charities Philosophy in Prison and the Evan Cornish Foundation, the National Offender Management Service Learning and Skills Development Fund, and several participating prisons.
More recently, I’ve been working as a Special Adviser to the charity, Philosophy in Prison, for whom I advise on course development and good practice in prison education.
Advocating Classics Education
I recently delivered a lecture for Adovcating Classics Education (ACE). ACE aims to extend classical education and make it more accessible across the UK's secondary education section. The lecture is designed to support students studying A-level Classical Civilisation. It focuses on Plato's critique of democracy in the Republic. You can watch the it below.
