The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics has an upcoming 2019 Public Lecture on ‘Beauty, Bodies and Social Justice’ by Professor Heather Widdows on 30th May 2019, as part of the Fifth Annual Conference for the Centre.
Professor Widdows has recently published Perfect Me: Beauty as an Ethical Ideal (Princeton University Press, 2018), a volume which explores the transformation of the status of beauty, the beauty ideal and the wider implications of beauty in the modern world. This lecture will explore similar themes, considering that beauty has become an ethical ideal.
