Professor of French wins Research Leave Award

Professor Seán Hand of the Department of Modern Languages has been successful in the AHRB’s Research Leave Scheme. The award will allow him to complete a book on Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995), the Lithuanian-born French philosopher whose ethics engaged with both phenomenology and a specific Judaic heritage. The project will situate the full range of Levinas’ writings in their intellectual, political and aesthetic contexts, and demonstrate their influence on subsequent theorising, teaching and practice across a wide range of disciplines.
