GRAND CHALLENGES LECTURE SERIES Our Mission The Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Keele is a vibrant, welcoming interdisciplinary hub which distils Keele’s founding history and commitment to interdisciplinary research and teaching and learning. It brings together researchers from across Health, Humanities and Social Sciences and Natural Sciences both within the university and from across the world and promotes research that drives innovation, and makes a difference to society and culture. The Institute offers spaces and places for conversations across the disciplines and for debating the challenging intellectual and societal questions that we face today. Based in the architecturally inspiring space of Keele Hall, the Institute’s energising environment stimulates the academic and cultural life of the university for all students, our staff and the wider Keele community. 2
