Collaborate with the School of the Arts

Liverpool Biennial

The Department of Philosophy holds a long-term collaboration with Liverpool Biennial, the largest international contemporary art festival in the UK. This partnership helps to promote our research, as well as the contribution Philosophy can make to creating and receiving contemporary art and culture.

The Beat Goes On

Since its launch in 1988, staff and students at the University’s Institute of Popular Music have conducted extensive research into the popular music cultures and histories of Merseyside. This research provided the basis for three exhibitions staged in partnership with National Museums Liverpool: 'Harmonious Relations', 'Talking Traditions' and ‘The Beat Goes On’.

Reading in the Community, Reading for Health and Wellbeing

This study outlines the nationwide impacts of a community reading programme, ‘Get into Reading’, which has grown out of research and practice carried out in the Department of English and the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society and has been pioneered by The Reader Organisation.

City in Film

A collaboration between the Departments of Architecture and Communication and Media, Mapping the City in Film worked extensively with amateur filmmakers and cine societies on Merseyside to discover and preserve rare films about the area’s historic landscapes.

Out of this World

In 2011 the British Library, working in association with the Discovery Channel, invited Andy Sawyer, the University’s Science Fiction Librarian, to be guest curator of the ‘Out of this World: Science Fiction But Not As You Know It’ exhibition.

Lyceum Project

The Lyceum Project is an original programme of philosophical research on teaching and learning managed by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Liverpool. Working with children throughout the region, we use philosophical methodology to facilitate teaching practice and cultural engagement and to help cultivate the personal development and wellbeing of pupils.
