Oxford Humanists talk: Prof Roger Griffin: ‘Challenges and Opportunities for 21st Century Humanists’

January 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Roger Griffin has recently retired from his post as Professor of Modern History and Political Theory at Oxford Brooke’s University.

He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the dynamics of fascism and of violence stemming from political or religious fanaticism, and in particular contemporary terrorism. He has made a number of contributions to a humanistic understanding of terrorist radicalization and the identification of an original strategy to bring about deradicalization. His theories of fascism and its
relationship to religion and ultranationalism continue to be widely used, particularly in Eastern Europe and have attracted interest as far away as South Korea, China and Japan.

During this evening’s talk Roger will lay out his conception of ‘transcultural humanism’, and its implications for humanists today.

Our talks are free for members and students, but we politely ask for a £3 donation from non-members towards admin costs.
