Utopias: Retrospective and Prospective

School of History - events - Mon, 2017-03-27 10:37
Date and time:  Wed, 29/03/2017 - 16:15 - 17:30 School of History History Seminar_wk 6_Utopias panel.jpg Thomas More, Utopia, 1516. Hand-tinted illustration. Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU Speakers:  Tania Colwell Speakers:  Benjamin Huf Speakers:  Russell Jacoby Speakers:  Desmond Manderson Contact Person:  School of History Contact email:  hist.admin.cass@anu.edu.au

The 500th anniversary of the publication of Thomas More’s Utopia in December 1516 has provided scholars with a fitting opportunity to revisit this classic work. Social critique, biting satire, or political philosophy: however one interprets More’s original text, concepts of utopia as both no-place and the good place, and its various derivations (e.g., dystopia, anti-utopia), have played a significant role in Western socio-political thought across the last five centuries.

Date and time:  Fri, 7th Apr 2017 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm Location:  Jean Martin Room in Beryl Rawson Building Presenter:  Annemarie Ashton-Wyatt

Abstract: Children may be born with a disability or may acquire one through accident or illness.

The Arab World: Between collapse and transformation

Date and time:  Tuesday, April 4, 2017 - 17:30 - 18:30 Lecture Centre for Arab & Islamic Studies Dr Shafeeq Ghabra.jpg Image: Prof. Shafeeq Ghabra Location or Venue:  Al-Falasi Lecture Theatre, CAIS Building, Ellery Cres, ANU Speakers:  Professor Shafeeq Ghabra Contact person:  CAIS Contact email:  cais@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  61 2 61254982 https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/the-arab-world-between-collapse-and-transformation-tickets-32906667729

Since the rebellions of 2011, the Arab order is in a state of disorder, sitting atop a time bomb made up of youth, who constitute the overwhelming majority. Today’s youth, want more freedom, dignity, jobs, and security. The unaccountable and security driven states cannot satisfy their aspirations and, in fact, push them in the opposite direction. Although the monarchies have tended to have more legitimacy than the entrenched despots of the Arab republics, their populations still experienced lack of political expression, freedoms, and government accountability.

Luke Roelofs: Revelation, Confusion, and Panpsychism

Philosophy - events - Tue, 2017-03-14 11:11
Thursday Seminar Date and time:  Thu, 16/03/2017 - 03:30 - 05:30 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

Constitutive panpsychists face a dilemma over what is sometimes called the ‘revelation principle’, according to which being in a conscious state teaches you the nature of that conscious state. On the one hand, they rely on some version of this principle in arguing against physicalism. On the other hand, the principle seems to support a simple argument against constitutive panpsychism itself: human consciousness doesn’t seem introspectively like the combination of a trillion micro-consciousnesses, and given the revelation principle, if it were that, it would seem that way.

Measuring Stopping and Spacing in Fertility Transitions: A Regression Approach

Demography - events - Fri, 2017-03-10 15:14
Date and time:  Fri, 31st Mar 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Presenter:  George Alter Location:  Jean Martin Room in Beryl Rawson Building

Abstract: A very influential model of the Demographic Transition was based on the conclusion that fertility decline in Europe was due to “stopping” (terminating childbearing at younger ages) rather than “spacing” (increasing the time between births).  This interpretation had important practical and policy implications, because it was linked to arguments about knowledge and acceptability of birth control.  Recently, the same issue has re-emerged in research on Africa, where some observers see modern contraception being used for spacing by wo

Over the past decade, the nature of the challenges and threats affecting the Middle East region have been among the most complex it has ever faced. The region’s political order is in a state of fundamental disequilibrium: from the unravelling of the Sykes-Picot architecture to the emergence of a nuclear Iran, and the unprecedented challenges to the legitimacy of the Arab political system. Each of these challenges is a potential threat to global peace and stability.
