New project: Equalities of Wellbeing in Philosophy and Architecture

Spinoza Research Network is proud to announce a new project starting today: Equalities of Wellbeing in Philosophy and Architecture.

Led by Beth Lord (Philosophy, Aberdeen) and Peg Rawes (Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London), Equalities of Wellbeing is a three-year project funded by the AHRC. Over the next three years, through a series of events, publications, and activities, we will focus on the question: How do philosophy and architecture give us a distinctive way of understanding equality, and how can this have impacts on the wellbeing of individuals and communities? Spinoza’s philosophy will be our starting point for investigating an alternative history of the concept of equality through proportion. We will be engaging with philosophers, architects, and organizations focused on income equality and affordable housing.

Find out more about the project, and follow our activities, on the Equalities of Wellbeing blog.
