Justine's salons are on varied topics from philosophy and politics to art and culture. She is particularly interested in questions on virtue ethics and the Platonic forms. She enjoys reviving the aspirational egalitarian ethos of salonnières of the 18th and 19th centuries and draws on her PhD research, on the history of Enlightenment salon culture, for inspiration. Chamber music is an integral element of her salon and she regularly invites classical concert musicians from around the world.
