In this lecture, Stefan Collini will explore discussions around the role
and nature of universities, which often tend to revolve around a
familiar dichotomy between the 'useful' and the 'useless'.  Such
discussion also tends to a rather ritualised invocation of John Henry
Newman's 'The Idea of a University' as some kind of justification of the
notion of a 'liberal' education.   Professor Collini will consider what
is at stake in these discussions by re-visiting Newman's text. Newman's
concerns, when viewed historically, can appear extremely remote from
present circumstances. But the lecture will suggest that by attending to
some of the less obvious literary characteristics of Newman's writing,
we can perhaps still draw some inspiration from it about the most
effective ways to characterise the intellectual purposes of universities
in the face of contemporary demands for 'usefulness'.

Stefan Collini is professor of intellectual history and English
literature at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Clare Hall.
