Institute of Continuing Education

Over the last 50 years research has revealed a surprising range of individual differences between people who identify as left or right wing (liberal or conservative). From the size or activity of particular areas of the brain, to moral values, to biases in categorising, it seems that political beliefs are associated with a wider range of individual differences. At a time of increasingly partisan politics, perhaps these findings can help us to understand the perspective of those who identify as being on the left or the right.

About Madingley Hall

Madingley Hall itself is an impressive manor house dating back to the mid-16th century. The decoration of the Saloon and the formal Stair Hall was carried out 200 years later, and the whole fabric was renovated with great care around 1900. About four miles from the centre of Cambridge, the Hall stands in several acres of beautifully-maintained gardens and overlooks a landscape which has changed relatively little since it was laid out by Capability Brown. It is just four miles from the centre of Cambridge, and only 60 minutes from London, with excellent links to London airports.
