From Damascus to Andalucia

The message from Adib Fattel from Damascus – conveyed to you through his paintings - is a message of love, peace, tolerance and the connections that bring us together. For Adib, the world is not East or West, Islamic, Christian or Jewish, nor is it black or white. For him the world is one world, multilayered, molded by history, coloured with diversity and made more beautiful with our rich cultural heritage — be it natural or man-made. Full details

LEEP Seminar Series - Professor Ben Zissimos - Contesting an International Trade Agreement

ABSTRACT: We develop a new theoretical political economy framework, called a ‘parallel contest’, that emphasizes the political fight over trade agreement (TA) ratification within countries. TA ratification is inherently uncertain in each country, where anti- and pro-trade interest groups contest each other to influence their own governments’ ratification decision. Unlike prior literature, the protection embodied in negotiated TA tariffs reflects a balance between the liberalizing force of lobbying and inherently protectionist government preferences. Moreover, new international political externalities emerge that are not internalized by governments that just internalize terms of trade externalities. Full details

Who do we think you are? Detecting salient identities in text

Behaviour differs between social groups – this appears to be true for linguistic style as well. Recent research has shown differences between age, gender, religious and political groups in the way group members speak. Since we are members of many different social groups, the question arises whether group membership affects our linguistic style constantly or whether our style shifts towards the group membership most relevant to the situation.

IOW-ARCH Indian Ocean World Archaeology Conference

We are in the process of establishing an annual or biennial research meeting/conference on the archaeology, material culture and heritage of the Indian Ocean (defined as from East Africa to Japan, including Australasia) from the first millennium BC to the contemporary era. The model is likely to be similar to the annual Islamic Archaeology Day at University College London, but lasting perhaps up to two-days and with the location moving between different academic host institutions. The first conference is being held at the Institute of Arab and Islamic studies (IAIS), University of Exeter, with financial sponsorship provided by the Centre for Islamic Archaeology. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Open Knowledge Institutions: Is there a future for the university in a networked world?" Prof Cameron Neylon (Curtin University)

From the inside it feels as though universities are under threat. Trust in expertise and support from governments seems to be ebbing, at the same time as massive tech giants pose an apparent threat to our core business of disseminating curated knowledge to students and sites of innovation. Yet universities are amongst the oldest surviving institutions in western society, predating the nation state, the corporation, and modern government. They have weathered massive societal change in the past. Are they well placed to do so through the crises of today? And are the tools available to university leaders fit for purpose, or even actively dangerous to the future of our institutions? What could a university be in the 21st century?. Full details
