17:00 [17:00] The 'Art of Thinking' about Faith Schools (ext event)
The ‘Art of Thinking’ about Faith Schools, As Part of Inter Faith Week 2019, Leicester, philosopher Dr Greg Scorzo will lead a talk and discussion about: "Should religious schools be able to teach claims that are at odds with secular values or knowledge?" This session will be about exploring questions about the scope of religious education and faith schools, such as: - How do we navigate the possibility of teaching students claims that go against either secular values, or public knowledge? - should faith schools be able to teach pupils that evolution isn’t true? - that being gay is a sin? If not, in what sense are we allowing education to ever be truly religious education? Should we get rid of faith schools and religious education altogether? https://www.cultureontheoffensive.com/the-art-of-thinking-about-faith-schools-lcb-depot-leicester-13th-nov-5pm/

18:00 [18:00] Nakul Patel: So what does a plastic surgeon really do? (ext event)
Leicester's Marvellous Medicine series, hosted by a different leading medical expert each month. Title: So what does a plastic surgeon really do? Speaker: Mr Nakul Patel, Consultant Plastic Surgeon Cost: FREE When people think of plastic surgery they tend to think of cosmetic enhancements. However, far more of the work of plastic surgeons is reconstructive, restoring the appearance and confidence of patients; helping them to heal both physical and psychological wounds. Our Marvellous Medicine talks offer an insight into medical specialities at Leicester’s Hospitals and an opportunity to experience what is at the forefront of medicine in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. All are welcome to attend for free. This is not a LSS event, so please check for any updates at https://www.leicestershospitals.nhs.uk/aboutus/our-news/marvellous-medicine/
