and

Majority-Minority Relations in Contemporary Women’s Movements: Strategic Sisterhood (Line Nyhagen Predelli and Beatrice Halsaa)

Leading feminist scholars, Nickie Charles, Gabriele Griffin, Gail Lewis, Anne Phillips and Lynne Segal, will offer their responses to the issues raised by the two books, and the seminar will be followed by a celebratory drinks reception.

The Italian Academies – The First Intellectual Networks of Early Modern Europe

Event Date: 17 – 18 September 2011

The Italian Academies 1525–1700 Project presents:

THE FIRST INTELLECTUAL NETWORKS OF EARLY MODERN EUROPE

This major international conference is being hosted as part of the AHRC funded research project The Italian Academies 1525-1700: the first intellectual networks of early modern Europe.

Academies represent a vital and characteristic dimension of early modern culture.
There were ca. 600 Academies in Italy in the period 1525-1700. Frequently international in membership, and in correspondence with scholars across Europe, they were fundamental to the development of the intellectual networks later defined as the ‘République des Lettres’, and to the dissemination of ideas in early modern Europe. Their membership included pioneering scientists, writers, artists, political thinkers, and representatives of both sexes and all social classes. The interests of the Academies ranged from the humanities, to the figurative and performance arts, natural sciences and medicine; many were interdisciplinary in their outlook and activities.

However, the social and cultural phenomenon of the Italian Academies has hitherto attracted relatively little research due in part to the wide range of their interests and difficulties in accessing relevant information.

The  conference aims to explore research questions raised by the activities of Academies in this period.

Plenary lectures will be given by: Professor Giovanni Muto (Universtita’ Federico II Napoli); Professor emerita Alison Brown (University of London); Professor Virginia Cox (New York University); Professor Paolo Procaccioli (Università della Tuscia, Viterbo)

NB: Presentations are in English and Italian, indicated by   English, and Italian

The 2012 Henry Myers Lecture

Professor Ian Hacking (Professor Emeritus at University of Toronto) – The Anthropology (and Archaeology) of Numbers

We are, among many other things, the mathematical animal. That is a fact about human nature, a fitting subject for anthropology to address. How did mathematics become possible for a species like ours, in a world like this one? That is a question in ecological history, and prehistory, to which many disciplines are now offering fragmentary answers—cognitive science, evolutionary psychology, neurology, and developmental psychology, for example, but also the history of science. I shall discuss how ethnography and ‘the archaeology of mind’ can contribute to understanding this aspect of being human.

Introduction by  Professor Clive Gamble.

A Special Relationship of Hate? 50 years of the Anglo-American Far-Right

in Academic Service - Archive, conference by on September 13th, 2012

Event Date: 13 and 14 September 2012

Sunley Management Centre

University of Northampton

Radicalism and New Media Group presents:

A Special Relationship of Hate? 50 years of the Anglo-American Far-Right

2012 is the 50th anniversary of the ‘Cotswold Agreement’ and the corresponding establishment of the World Union of National Socialists under the leadership of the UK’s Colin Jordan and the USA’s George Lincoln Rockwell. Since then, numerous examples of postwar fascist ‘internationalism’ are demonstrated by the interrelated development of British and American far-right ideology, culture, aesthetics and practices – found to represent, in the words of Leonard Weinberg, a leading scholar on this neglected subject, a tightly-knit ‘cultural and political affinity between right-wing extremist groups on both sides of the Atlantic, together with an increasing exchange of ideas, perspectives, forms of organization’ and more. Ranging from music and dress to shared political agendas and strategies, these ‘affinities’ will be expansively traced in this two-day international conference, to be hosted by the University of Northampton’s Radicalism and New Media Research Group (www.radicalism-new-media.org) on 13 and 14 September 2012.

The Society for European Philosophy (SEP) and the Forum for European Philosophy (FEP) 2012 Conference

in association with The London Graduate School

The Society for European Philosophy (SEP) aims to provide a forum for research and teaching in all areas of European philosophy, broadly construed. It provides an opportunity for scholars from any country, and any discipline, to come together and share ideas. Since 1997, the SEP conference has been an important annual event for faculty, post-graduate students and independent scholars of European philosophy throughout the world. Since 2005 the SEP annual conference has been run jointly with the Forum for European Philosophy (FEP), helping to make the three-day conference the largest event of its kind in Europe. This year the joint conference will also run in association with the London Graduate School.

The four keynote events will be recorded and are available here soon after the conference.
