Kent in Paris

Come and celebrate 10 years of the University of Kent in Paris!

We are delighted to invite you to Kent in Paris!

Our annual Kent in Paris event not only celebrates Kent’s Paris School of Arts and Culture but also showcases strong and exciting research undertaken by our academics and students.

This year the event will take place at our Paris centre, Reid Hall, on 18 March from 18:00.

The evening will begin with a lecture entitled ‘The Alienation Effect: How to keep your distance’ given by Ben Hutchinson; Professor of European Literature at the University of Kent and Academic Director of the Paris School of Arts and Culture.

In this lecture celebrating ten years of the University of Kent in Paris, Ben Hutchinson will explore how travel and education - living abroad and broadening our minds - can help give us critical distance on our sense of ourselves. He will also consider the difficulty of maintaining this critical perspective as we move out of education and into professional life. How, as we get older, do we keep our distance?

Following the lecture, you are invited to join us for a drinks reception which will be an opportunity to catch up with Kent staff and fellow alumni from the local area whom you may have lost touch with, to share your memories of Kent and find out about all our latest news.

Register online for the event and reception »

We’d love as many people as possible to come along, so please do share this invitation with any Kent alumni you are in touch with in the area, in case we don’t have their up to date details.

We hope you will be able to join us!
