Perfect me! at the Hay Festival

Saturday 24 May 2014 (14:30)

'Perfect me!' explores the ideal of perfection as exhibited in contemporary, and increasingly global, ideals of beauty.

It considers whether being perfect something that individual’s really choose, or whether it is an increasingly constraining and dominating ideal.

Professor Heather Widdows' talk is part of the Birmingham Speakers at Hay series. Tickets for this talk, and other talks featuring in this series, are available directly from the Hay Festival. This event is free for students.
