28th Oct 2011 YAPN (CHiPhi) in Leeds

Centre for the History of Philosophy (CHiPhi): Workshop on Ancient Philosophy, organised by the Yorkshire Ancient Philosophy Network, a research group within CHiPhi.


We can no longer use the IDEA CETL building, because of jammed shutters. We will use the Leeds Humanities Research Institute (LHRI). Seminar Room 3 of the Leeds Humanities Research Institute (LHRI).
The LHRI is at 29-31 Clarendon Place, no. 25 on campus map: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/campusmap

If you find your way to the IDEA CETL building, you basically need to carry on up Woodhouse Lane towards the Parkinson Building (big white building with tower and front steps), turn left just before the Parkinson building, and go under a “bridge” (a 1st floor corridor) and keep going through a pedestrianised bit of campus. You should veer slightly left and down some steps in order to go past the Students Union Building and University House on your left. You eventually get to various roads with brick houses on your left, one of which is Clarendon Place. If you turn left onto Clarendon Place, the LHRI is quite soon on the right.
