November 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to Backdoor Broadcasting’s November 2016 newsletter. It’s been a long summer break – with not nearly enough podcasts from conferences and events, so just a quick reminder, we’re available throughout the year, email your inquiries or bookings here – and the new academic year began slowly at the end of September.

So now follows a summary of what we’ve been recording in September and October 2016, starting with the Aristotelian Society. Three from them, with the first one being the inaugural lecture from its new President, Professor Tim Crane (Cambridge):

and two contributions from their regular programme:


We also have three from the Royal Asiatic Society:

The continuing series of talk from the Humanities and Arst Centre at Royal Holloway ‘ Making Space for Art’, which concentrates on the management and curation of museums and galleries had it’s opening event for this academic year:

You might remember the ‘Blind Creations‘ conference from last June – well, the tireless Dr Hannah Thompson has followed this up with another excellent event on visual impairment:

Now to some more topical stuff – from Birkbeck number of talks on contemporary issues:

and from the Institute for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at Durham University:

And now on to the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) at Kingston. Two from them:

OK, and now back to Birkbeck, University of London with a wealth of intellectual stimulation:

And this year’s Slavoj Žižek Masterclass ‘Between Philosophy and Psychoanalysis’:

And on a lighter note, an inspiring lecture on David Bowie by Prof Alex Sharpe (Keele):

So it remains for me to say that we can always do with more bookings, we are available (email here) for any size conference, talk, symposia, workshops and public lectures – and enjoy listening. Should yuo have any questions or inquiries, please email or phone (UK 01865 240009).
