Purging to Transform the Post-Colonial State: Evidence from the 1952 Egyptian Revolution

The post-WWII era saw junior military officers launch “revolutionary coups” in a number of post-colonial states. How did these events transform colonial-era state elites? We theorize that the inexperienced leaders of revolutionary coups had to choose between purging threats and delivering radical policies, leading to important variation in elite turnover and survival..

EGENIS seminar: "Give me a phenomenon to observe, and an intervention precise enough, and I can find the mechanism", Caterina Schürch (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich)

In 1928, chemist Fritz Laquer framed the Archimedes-postulate of hormone research: „Give me a test object! — and one can hopefully begin the chemical processing of a hormone.“ This talk looks at the study of plant growth hormones and other cases from the 1920s and 1930s in which researchers attempted to elucidate the chemical processes taking place in living organisms. Taking Laquer’s metaphor one step further, I argue: In order to elucidate biochemical processes, researchers not only needed precise intervention techniques (levers), but also regular biological phenomena (places to stand on). The analysis highlights the essential role of research organisms and their behaviour in the experimental life sciences. Moreover, we better understand why the chemists and biologists cooperated as equals: Both disciplinary groups had resources and skills that the other needed to achieve their epistemic goals.

EGENIS seminar: "How to Incorporate Non-Epistemic Values in a Theory of Classification", Marc Ereshefsky (University of Calgary)

Non-epistemic values play important roles in scientific classificatory practice, such that philosophical accounts of kinds and classification should be able to accommodate them. However, available accounts fail to do so. I aim to fill this lacuna by showing how non-epistemic values feature in scientific classification, and how they can be incorporated into a philosophical theory of classification and kinds. To achieve this, I present a novel account of kinds and classification (the Grounded Functionality Account), discuss examples from biological classification where non-epistemic values play decisive roles, and show how this account accommodates the role of non-epistemic values.

EGENIS seminar: "AI in Medicine: Finding equilibrium in global data capture", Prof Robin Pierce (University of Exeter)

The range of applications of AI in medicine has grown considerably in recent years. The increase in computational capacity has allowed for an array of technologies that can uncover a vast number of correlations that could improve health outcomes or yield scientific knowledge. Increased understanding of the impacts of the social determinants of health, environmental, and other (non-) biological factors on health outcomes would seem to support the drive to amass, aggregate, and integrate different types of data. Yet, even in global data capture, what is absent may be the greater challenge for data governance, possibly affecting explainability, accuracy and, ultimately, health outcomes. Data governance aims to govern data but may have little to say about “absent” data. Using examples of data-intensive technologies, e.g., Deep and Frequent Phenotyping, this paper explores the terrain of finding equilibrium as a regulatory challenge for health research. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "Data Integration without Unification", Beckett Sterner (Arizona State University)

How should billions of species observations worldwide be made reusable? Data unification according to a universal hierarchy of domains has been a popular ideal for biodiversity science, but it relies on heuristic assumptions that are known to fail systematically in practice. We propose a new regulative ideal for how scientists can coordinate their knowledge-making without unification to achieve better results when pluralistic conditions apply. We focus on data pooling as a crucial form of integrative research in science that supports data reuse. We define data pooling as a process that combines data from multiple sources into one harmonized body of information, provide infrastructure for managing and accessing the combined data, and governs it as a shared resource for a community of users and stakeholders beyond a single research project or lab..

EGENIS seminar: "The Disunity of Science and Unity of the World", Prof John Dupré (University of Exeter)

This talk reflects on the relations between the philosophy of science and metaphysics. I have tried to show for many years that these are essential to one another, though with respect to a view of metaphysics that remains a minority one, that metaphysics must be grounded in empirical science, a so-called “naturalistic” metaphysics. I begin by sketching the view of disunity of science articulated in my 1993 book, The Disorder of Things. I then trace the evolution of my ideas about the implications of this thesis to metaphysics, leading to the advocacy of the processual metaphysics that I have been defending more recently. The adoption of processual metaphysics enables a proper reconciliation between a disunified science and the intuitively compelling thesis that there is only one world. Finally, illustrating my view that metaphysics and science are mutually informing, I illustrate some scientific consequences of this processual metaphysics.. Full details

Seminar: Linking health and social data for research: the CIDACS experience in Brazil

The Centre for Data and Knowledge Integration for Health (CIDACS, Fiocruz) was established in December 2016 in Salvador (Bahia-Brazil). Its main purpose is to conduct interdisciplinary research on populational health, generating scientific knowledge and providing evidence to support public policymaking. The core data come from integrating Brazilian national health and social datasets into two main resources - the 100 Million Brazilian Cohort and the CIDACS birth cohort. CIDACS has been developing and consolidating its data management and governance practices and experimenting with novel methodological approaches for data linkage (Cidacs-RL) and data analysis (quasi-experimental designs)..

EGENIS seminar: "An Impossible Science? The quest for biomedical measurement and clinical management in pain medicine", Dr Ariane Hanemaayer (Brandon University)

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, there existed another pandemic known as the opioid crisis. Over the last 30 years the Global North saw a rise in addiction to opiates and opioid related deaths, many of which began as medically prescribed therapeutics to manage both acute and chronic pain (e.g., oxycontin). Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom had all declared national crises related to opiate addiction by 2019.

EGENIS seminar: "The Risk of Biological Race Realism", Dr Celso Neto (University of Exeter)

Biological race realism (hereafter BRR) is the view that humans form biologically distinct groups. Non-racist versions of BRR have emerged recently based on sophisticated and reputable work in science and philosophy (Hardimon 2003; 2017; Spencer 2012; 2014; 2019a). In this chapter, I examine Quayshawn Spencer’s new version of BRR and argue that it fails to consider how social, political, and moral values influence the metaphysics of race. To do so, I rely on the “science and values” literature and the notions of inductive, epistemic, and ethical risk (Douglas 2000; Douglas 2009; Brown 2015; Biddle and Kukla 2017; Elliot and Richards 2017). Once one realizes the complex relationship between these types of risks and BRR, Spencer’s sophisticated metaphysical arguments become less appealing than one might think. Furthermore, broad questions arise concerning how socially responsible metaphysics should be done.. Full details

Exeter Food 2021-2022 Seminar Series

The popularity of ‘soda taxes’ as a public health policy has grown rapidly in the last few years, offering what appears to be a ‘simple’ solution to a ‘complex’ problem. While the evidence suggests that a tax is associated with reducing the purchases of sugar-sweetened beverages, there are a number of questions that remain, including: understanding possible spill-over effects across the food system, the mechanisms for behaviour change (how much of the effect is actually price versus other effects), extensions to tax policies beyond ‘soda’, importance of changed product composition versus overall consumption. In this presentation, I will outline research we have conducted in the UK over the last few years that cover these (and other) areas, including our current evaluation of the UK’s ‘soda tax’, the ‘sugar drinks industry levy’..

Inoculation theory offers a solution to polarization, with experimental studies finding that inoculating messages neutralize the polarizing influence of misinformation on issues like climate change..

EGENIS seminar: "The International Space Station as a Platform for Plant Biology: Institutionalising a Research Community", Dr Paola Castaño (University of Exeter)

The International Space Station (ISS) is commonly defined as a laboratory in Low Earth Orbit for hundreds of experiments across disciplines. What kind of social object is a space station? What kind of platform for scientific research is the ISS? How might one study that research? And what are the conceptual implications of this study? In my previous work, I have examined those questions using NASA experiments in plant biology, biomedicine, and particle astrophysics as my units of analysis. For this presentation, part of work in progress, I shift my focus to the process of institutionalisation of research communities around the ISS. Specifically, I concentrate on space plant biologists and the Decadal Survey on Biological and Physical Sciences Research in Space (2023-2032) that is currently underway (2020-2022) at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in the United States.

EGENIS seminar: "A New Tuskegee? Unethical Human Experimentation and Western Neocolonialism in the Mass Circumcision of African Men", Dr Brian Earp (University of Oxford)

Campaigns to circumcise millions of boys and men to reduce HIV transmission are being conducted throughout eastern and southern Africa, recommended by the World Health Organization and implemented by the United States government and Western NGOs. In the United States, proposals to mass-circumcise African and African American men are long standing, and have historically relied on racist beliefs and stereotypes. The present campaigns were started in haste, without adequate contextual research, and the manner in which they have been carried out implies troubling assumptions about culture, health, and sexuality in Africa, as well as a failure to properly consider the economic determinants of HIV prevalence..

EGENIS seminar: "A Spinosaurus Tail Tale: Underdetermination, Capacities & Historical Knowledge", Dr Adrian Currie (University of Exeter)

Most discussion of paleontology’s credentials focus on ‘epistemic scarcity’: paleontological data is rare, degraded, incomplete and hard to manage. In virtue of this, paleontological hypotheses are often underdetermined, that is, we lack sufficient evidence to discriminate between competing hypotheses. However, this discussion assumes that paleontological knowledge is focused on understanding life’s actual history: token events and processes. I’ll push against this interpretation via an examination of secondarily aquatic vertebrates, that is, once-terrestrial critters who have returned to the sea, in particular the enigmatic, enormous theropod Spinosaurus..

EGENIS seminar: "Demonstrations, Definitions and Newton’s Experimental Philosophy", Dr Kirsten Walsh (University of Exeter)

Newton’s Opticks Book 1 opens with a set of definitions and axioms, so one might expect to find the theorems contained therein to be proved from said definitions and axioms via deductively valid rules of inference. But they’re not. Instead, Newton employs ‘proof by experiment’: each theorem is proved via a series of experiments, which are represented by geometrical diagrams and accompanying text. Newton’s axioms and definitions do not feature explicitly in these proofs—they are not even mentioned in the discussions. I address two questions in relation to this case. First, how does ‘proof by experiment’ function as a proof? Second, what roles do axioms and definitions play in the trajectory from experiment to proven theorem? I argue that this case is revelatory of Newton’s understanding of experimental philosophy and the probative force of his (in)famous experimentum crucis.. Full details

His two bestselling books about his farming life – The Shepherd’s Life and English Pastoral – have been translated in to many languages and have won a number of literary awards including the Wainwright Prize, the Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year and the Sunday Times Memoir of the Year and Nature Book of the Year, and have been shortlisted for the Ondaatje Prize and the Orwell Prize. English Pastoral was described by Melvyn Bragg as ‘masterpiece’ and by Wendell Berry as ‘just about perfect’. In this lecture, which has been organised by the Centre for Rural Policy Research and Exeter Food as part of their Distinguished Lecture Series, he will tell the story of what his land has taught him about farming with nature, and how we must strive to reconcile all our different needs from the British landscape.

EGENIS seminar: "Out of control: creating reliable data in the laboratory", Dr Stephan Guttinger (University of Exeter)

The idea of experimental control is often associated with positive notions such as reliability, certainty, and reproducibility; control is seen as part of what makes the laboratory-based sciences powerful and trustworthy. It is part of the reason why scientists can create reliable data. However, like in society, control can also have a negative effect: exert too much of it and you stifle freedom, creativity, and exploration. This is a problem for science. As Hans-Jörg Rheinberger has highlighted, experimental systems cannot become too rigid and standardized because science depends on a certain openness to unfold its full potential; uncertainty and fuzziness are at the heart of the experimental process..

EGENIS seminar: "Quality judgment in data production processes: two case studies on economic and health data", Dr Quentin Dufour (Mines ParisTech)

Despite the rules and measurement conventions that structure quantification processes in statistical institutes, producing data always involve a moral dimension, that of quality judgment. By those terms, I refer to a set of techniques, knowledge and know-how, that helps a community of practice to define and evaluate what a correct data is in specific contexts. Quality judgments involve thoughts about the right ways to produce data, and the characteristics of the result to be achieved. At the crossroads of Science Studies and the sociology of quantification, this presentation tackles the problem of quality judgment following two data production processes.. Full details

EGENIS seminar: Tracking a Concept through a Medical Humanities Perspective: The Strange Case of the “Parthenos” , Dr Eftihia Mihelakis (Brandon University)

Working with concepts in the field of medical humanities means recognizing that discourses, be they cultural or medical, have an indubitable role to play in how we think, imagine, speak or remain silent about different domains of inquiry and how these thought processes erupt, devolve or mutate over time. In this talk, I will trace the emergence of the Ancient Greek concept of “parthenos” as it pertains to illness as well as lack or excessive knowledge by documenting its transformations in humoral medicine, medical jurisprudence, legal texts, and will conclude on sketching out future directions for this research.

EGENIS seminar: "From pluripotent stem cells to human embryos", Dr Ge Guo (University of Exeter)

Our life starts from a fertilized egg that develops into a distinctive multicellular structure called blastocyst. The blastocyst comprises three founding tissues, the epiblast, trophectoderm and hypoblast. Epiblast is the origin of the embryo proper and the source of pluripotent embryonic stem cells. Trophectoderm and hypoblast give rise to extra-embryonic tissues, the placenta and yolk sac, that support embryo development in the uterus. We have established human naïve embryonic stem cells. They are called “naïve” because they represent an earlier developmental stage than conventional human embryonic stem cells. Classic developmental biology studies in animal models suggested that epiblast and embryonic stem cells cannot regenerate trophectoderm. Full details

Since at least the 1930s, ferrets have been recognized as extremely well-suited models for studying the pathogenicity and transmissibility of both human and avian influenza viruses. Ferrets are attractive mammalian models due to their relatively small size and other physiological features including the similarity of their lungs to humans, but particularly because they evidence numerous clinical features associated with human disease, especially influenza. Ferrets are highly susceptible to the influenza virus, and have become indispensable for elucidating virus-host interactions following influenza virus infection. However, unlike many other more traditional model organisms such as mice, ferrets are not standardized and often are sourced from diverse types of locales.. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "Making up publics: configuring expertise, knowledge and ignorance in environmental research", Prof Judith Green (University of Exeter)

This paper takes an example from a field where scientific knowledge is emergent and uncertain - the health impacts of artificial light at night – to explore how knowledge and ignorance are mobilised to create publics. Artificial light at night has become a matter of political, environmental and public health concern, as urban administrations across the world seek to reduce carbon emissions and costs by using emergent LED and smart technologies to manage street lighting. In doing so, these administrations interact with civil society and academic groups concerned by the impacts of light pollution on the ecosystem and human experiences of the night sky. However, urban light at night is not just a technological accomplishment and light pollution risk: providing it is intricately tied to the histories of city governance, and the making of modern spaces of security and safety.

When (not) to trust the overlap in confidence intervals: A practical guide

Researchers often aim to compare estimates across groups.

Philosophy of Plant Biology Workshop

Plants are very interesting organisms. They implement unique internal processes and modes of interaction with their environments. Needless to say, as the primary harvesters of solar energy they are vital parts of ecosystems. Serious attention to plants provides novel and interesting perspectives on many topics in philosophy of biology, including individuality, organisation, cognition, and disease. For example, the growth of plants requires us to stretch the concept of organism. If vegetative spread, for example via suckers from roots, is counted as mere growth, a forest can be considered a single organism, as is the case with ‘Pando’, a Populus tremuloides forest in Utah. And although there seems to be no centre of the coordination in a plant body as in animals, there is usually a highly-tuned coordination of the body parts that has led some theorists to attribute cognitive capacities to plants..

EGENIS seminar: "Regulating the Circulation of Knowledge across US Borders: A transnational approach" Prof John Krige (Georgia Institute of Technology)

This talk will explore the contours of a gray zone of knowledge that is neither classified, nor can circulate freely, and then trace the historical arc of one major instrument – export controls – as mobilized by the U.S. national security state to regulate its movement across national borders. To illustrate the range of regulatory instruments devised, I will then briefly describe how the meaning of fundamental research in biomedicine was recently fashioned by the NIH to bring it within the purview of the national security state. To conclude, I will discuss the interest of a transnational approach to knowledge circulation as a method that can help us to overcome the more or less total absence of any engagement with this gray zone in the scholarly literature.

Towards Responsible Plant Data Linkage: Global Challenges for Food Security and Governance - Session 4 & Conclusion: Social challenges of data linkage

The social implications of plant and agricultural biotechnologies have been the focus of much debate in recent decades. Data production, sharing and linkage raise new issues concerning the inclusion of diverse stakeholders and ensuring that data works for them, practically and equitably. Building plural knowledges into plant data infrastructures, through the inclusion of practical and traditional knowledge from farmers and breeders, the recognition of diverse (e.g. gendered, but also professional) expertise and the implementation of multilingual systems, will be an important facet in establishing the relevance of those infrastructures to a wide range of stakeholders. Ensuring that global circulations of plant data are fair as well as FAIR, moreover, requires sustained attention to the distribution of scientific and computing resources that facilitate access to and effective use of data resources. Throughout all of this, ensuring that key subjects of food security and end-users of data. Full details

When the sea cut off the island from the rest of the continent (c. 8,000 years ago) the flora, fauna and human population were very different. Over millennia, Britain's ecology and culture have been transformed. Change has been the only constant, with population movements being responsible for the island's unique bio-cultural heritage.

Towards Responsible Plant Data Linkage: Global Challenges for Food Security and Governance - Session 3: Governance Challenges of Data Linkage

New flows and intersections of big data from -omics research in plant science, including field-based phenomics as well as genomics, to various types of socioeconomic and environmental data, pose distinct challenges for governance. Data access and ownership for the common good and/or scientific advancement remain areas of considerable contestation, especially given the distinctive intellectual property landscape of plant science, which is marked by the predominance of transnational corporations on the one hand and regimes of national sovereignty on the other. Moreover, longstanding challenges of implementing Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) schemes in regard to biological materials are renewed by the increasing availability of digital data, while the integration of biological with socioeconomic data raises new questions of privacy. This session will address these and other governmental issues raised by plant data linkage, from open science policy through legal and political regulation. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "Hard Knock Life: Concussion, Dementia and Sport" Dr Greg Hollin (University of Leeds)

The first decades of the twenty-first century have seen a ‘concussion crisis’ in sport. While there has been increased, and considerable, concern about the acute health risks associated with brain injury, much of the crisis has oriented around ‘Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy’, or CTE, a form of dementia associated with repetitive head injuries such as those experienced as part of sporting activity. Within this context, there has been widespread criticism levelled at innumerable Sports Governance Organizations with accusations that responses to the crisis have been both too slow and too circumscribed. Nonetheless, concussion governance has been embedded in numerous sports in the form of, for example, new or altered rules, increased medical provision, diagnostic technologies, compulsory coaching courses, return to play protocols, and legislative change..

Towards Responsible Plant Data Linkage: Global Challenges for Food Security and Governance - Session 2: Technical Challenges of Data Linkage

Making plant data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) has been the subject of much effort. Extensive semantic tools are now available, including the multiple, intersecting ontologies that comprise the Planteome project, as are metadata standards such as the Minimum Information About a Plant Phenotyping Experiment (MIAPPE). Such tools nevertheless require collective work to develop and maintain. Beyond ensuring data themselves are FAIR, actively linking and circulating data poses further challenges. These include finding ways to link biologically, experimentally or geographically related yet heterogeneous datasets consistently, and to make data usable in practice to potential users with divergent aims and resources, not only reusable in theory. This session will address the technical challenges of data linkage, including the development of standards and infrastructures; epistemic issues; and the organizational requirements of this work..

EGENIS seminar: "AI Extenders and the Ethics of Mental Health" Dr Karina Vold (University of Toronto)

The extended mind thesis maintains that the functional contributions of tools and artefacts can become so essential for our cognition that they can be constitutive parts of our minds. In other words, our tools can be on a par with our brains: our minds and cognitive processes can literally ‘extend’ into the tools. Several extended mind theorists have argued that this ‘extended’ view of the mind offers unique insights into how we understand, assess, and treat certain cognitive conditions. In this chapter we suggest that using AI extenders, i.e., tightly coupled cognitive extenders that are imbued with machine learning and other ‘artificially intelligent’ tools, presents both new ethical challenges and opportunities for mental health. We focus on several mental health conditions that can develop differently by the use of AI extenders for people with cognitive disorders and then discuss some of the related opportunities and challenges.

The book is about how the use of diagnosis has increased over the last 30 years in the UK and is a key output from our Exploring Diagnosis project. An initial overview will describe how it was written as a counterpoint to work with the neurodiversity movement, and present some data from the latest surveys that demonstrate the dramatically increased diagnosis of autism in Europe and US since the 1990s. The book offers a critical understanding of autism statistics, and why there are competing interpretations of the same data. It provides both commentary on, and contribution to, the neurodiversity movement. After a talk to introduce the contents of the book, discussants will give their own unique take on the rising use of autism diagnosis and the phenomenon of diagnostic creep. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Emotions online: What are they, and what can they do for us?" Dr Anna Bortolan (Swansea University)

The seminar explores from a philosophical perspective the nature and role of emotions experienced in the context of social media use. First, I will argue that a narrative theory of emotion is better positioned than competing approaches to account for the key features of affective experiences on the internet. I will claim that these experiences are best understood as socially shaped processes, suggesting that such an account enables us to make sense of some of the characteristics of emotions undergone on social media (e.g. their intensity and contagiousness). I will then move to outline how such an account can shed light on the way in which online interactions may have transformative effects on one’s self-experience and self-understanding.. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "Signalling, Solidarity, and Strategic Delusions", Dr Daniel Williams (University of Cambridge)

Some widely held beliefs seem absurd. They appear so radically at odds with the available evidence that it is difficult to understand how anyone could genuinely hold them. Unlike clinical delusions, however, they do not appear to be produced by a dysfunctional psychology. Such beliefs therefore generate a puzzle: How – and why – do functional psychological mechanisms give rise to absurd beliefs? Drawing on signalling theory and research in the psychological and social sciences, I clarify, defend, and explore the hypothesis that such beliefs are a strategic response to the signalling incentives generated by coalitions..

The book illustrates how the ecosystemic understandings of health and of biology introduced by microbiome research is perceived and enacted by metagenomics researchers. The main argument is that metagenomics working practices develop across the tension between theory and practice, holism and reductionism, and the molecular and the ecosystemic view. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Cognitive Science Goes Green: The Quest for Plant Intelligence", Prof Paco Calvo (University of Murcia)

Cognitive science provides the means to make headway in the quest for plant intelligence. Contrary to common belief, plants are not merely acted upon; they rather take action autonomously according to their own needs. Plants are intelligent insofar as they behave adaptively, flexibly, anticipatorily, and in a goal-directed manner. Plausibly, to do so, self-propelled mobility is needed—although, unlike animal locomotion, plant movement takes the form of growth and development. With that being said, being rooted, plants need to be much more distributed and decentralized than animals. Unfortunately, the default understanding of the relation between mobility and cognition is by resorting to an information-processing paradigm.. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "A Candyman in Letchworth: Making Human Environments Liveable", Prof Des Fitzgerald (University of Exeter)

It is commonplace now to say that mental life is partly a product of the environment – to say that a person’s mental health is rooted in the external circumstances of their life, and not (only) in the internal workings of their body. There is however an emergent wrinkle in this form of thought, which is not new, but has nonetheless gained prominence in recent years: for both cultural and scientific practitioners, the environment, as it relates to mind, has come to signify not simply a generalisable set of social and cultural circumstances, but rather a person’s immediate physical environment; which is to say, the materials composing the building they are in, the arrangement of the urban scene they are passing through, or the set of small plants and shrubs with which they desperately populate their living and working spaces..

I will describe the partial overlaps methodology as an approach to deal with ontological, epistemological, ethical and political issues related to knowledge integration, by taking a via media between overly optimistic and pessimistic views on the possibility of integrating different knowledge systems. A central topic will be how learning may take place through partial overlaps, both when there is overlap between knowledge systems and when they diverge from each other. I will illustrate both the partial overlaps methodology and some mutual learning process from fieldwork in artisanal fishing traditional communities from Northeast Brazil. Full details

But without disputing its importance as an essential component of historical inquiry, this seminar will seek to problematise the use of spatial data using two case studies.. Full details

EGENIS seminar: "Social practices, contested values. Forensic genetics innovations for policing" "Dr Matthias Wienroth (University of Northumbria)

This paper contributes to studies of values and valuation within debates about social practices of responsible innovation. It proposes to understand innovation as social practice, and values in innovation as temporary settlements of considerations around validity, operability, and social compatibility of socio-technical innovation. As such, the paper adopts a practice-based approach to values in new technologies and their respective emerging governance and practice arrangements around Reliability, Utility and LEgitimacy (RULE). These three principles combine scientific with operational and social aspects of innovation as centre points around which deliberative engagement can be facilitated between different societal perspectives, offering the opportunity to develop greater awareness of diverse and at times competing understandings of values..

"COVID Societies: What is the place of the social sciences and humanities in pandemic times?"

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the world. As the temporal horizon of the pandemic moves into years, and perhaps decades, however, it becomes clear that there are more than medical and scientific questions at stake, both in the pandemic and in our response to it. Learning to live with COVID also means identifying, understanding and tackling the social, cultural, political, ethical and environmental shifts emerging from the pandemic. This means, in turn, that research from experts in the social sciences and humanities will increasingly move towards the forefront of how we respond to the pandemic – sometimes in collaboration with clinical and scientific research, but sometimes under its own steam too. In this online roundtable, we draw together social science and humanities expertise from Exeter University to situate COVID-19 as a crisis that is posing major questions to research in these disciplines..

Establishment Relations and Fatherhood Wage Premiums

Fathers often earn more than their childless counterparts, although effects can vary among groups of men. Most of this literature uses micro data and attributes these wage effects to individual selection.

"Do Not Feed the Animals?"

Signs stating ‘Do not feed the animals’ are ubiquitous in zoos, national parks and urban spaces. They stress that uncontrolled feeding by people can affect animal health, alter wild animal behaviour and create public hygiene and nuisance issues. However, humans appear to have a deep-seated proclivity to feed animals. Many ancient cults fed animals, some modern religions require it, and feeding is often actively encouraged as a tourist attraction. Millions of people feed wildlife in gardens and in 2018, the pet-food industry was worth £2.7 billion in the UK alone. Full details

POSTPONED. EGENIS seminar series: Exploring the Easter E.g. – Shifting Baselines and Changing Perceptions of Cultural and Biological ‘Aliens’, Prof Naomi Sykes (University of Exeter)

Easter is the most important event in the Christian calendar. Despite its global reach and cultural significance, Easter has attracted minimal academic attention since the 1970s. Astonishingly little is known about the festival’s genesis, when it first appeared in Britain, the origins of its component customs – e.g. the gifting of eggs purportedly delivered by the Easter ‘bunny’ – or how they coalesced to form current practices. Equally obscure are the timing and circumstance by which animals that have come to be associated with the festival – notably the brown hare and the rabbit but also the chicken – arrived in Britain. As a result, Easter is a high-profile natural and cultural history puzzle. This talk, timed to coincide with the festival, will bring together the results of an AHRC-funded project on the subject..

An increasingly influential hypothesis in political science is that certain forms of group-based misinformation are driven by psychological and social processes in which unfounded beliefs come to function as signals of group identity and loyalty. I clarify, scrutinise, and offer a partial defence of this ‘signalling hypothesis’. Drawing on signalling theory and various characteristics of human psychology and groups, (i) I develop a theoretical framework for understanding why and how beliefs come to perform group-signalling functions and (ii) I explain how this phenomenon can be distinguished from other explanations of group-based misinformation..

POSTPONED: CRPR Seminar Series: Prof. Michael Carolan

This seminar engages with two rich but largely disparate research traditions: one looks at ethical consumption, that is, constructions and contestations around good food, while the other interrogates the equally contested space of what it means to be a good farmer. The argument is informed by qualitative data collected from, on the one hand, those engaged in shaping urban food policy and institutional procurement plans in Denver, Colorado, and, on the other hand, rural Colorado farmers and ranchers who supply out-of-state markets. Given the growing appeal of locally sourced food from smaller scale producers utilizing certain so-called ethical management practices (resulting in, e.g. cage-free chickens, organic food, and grass-fed beef), the seminar asks, “how are particular markers of good food,” which I show to be commonly held in urban foodscapes, “understood by rural producers?,” and “how do these constructions play into their conceptions of what it means to be a good farmer?”.

EGENIS seminar series: "Using open data to define problems: How residents, policymakers, and engineers approach open government data" Dr Caitlin Donahue Wylie (Virginia University)

Making a city’s data publicly available online can serve the democratic ideal of transparency. Advocates argue that open civic data can equip stakeholders to achieve such lofty goals as supervising their government, identifying social problems, making evidence-based arguments for reform and social justice, and designing tailored solutions and research projects. As a result of this variety of uses, open data brings together several stakeholder groups, such as residents, elected officials and government staff, and engineering researchers. How these groups understand, interpret, and apply the same datasets offers a valuable comparison between their values, beliefs about knowledge, and conceptions of public good. Understanding these groups’ different epistemic approaches to data is crucial for identifying factors that influence whether and how users succeed in transforming open data into knowledge.

Research Workshop on “The nature and transformation of contemporary political regimes: Sino-European perspectives”

This research workshop is meant to start a conversation between scholars working from different perspectives on the nature and development of contemporary political regimes. We shall concentrate on two main cases, the European and the Chinese political regimes; which can also be regarded as both emblematic and paradigmatic of the rather simplified dichotomy between authoritarian and democratic regimes that often dominates political analysis and political discourse. This slight Manichean categorization of political regimes has long maintained a stronghold on the political imagination—perhaps with some reason, in terms of the underlying conviction that modern political authority needs to rest on some form of popular legitimacy and unforced acceptance. Arguably, such simplification was at its most popular and pervasive during the last decade of the last century, after the collapse of the Soviet regime, which seemed to signal the unchallenged dominance of the liberal democratic model.

EGENIS seminar series: "Plant Phenome", Dr Ozlem Yilmaz (University of Exeter)

Plant Phenome Project* has started last month. Plant Phenomics has been growing and advancing rapidly in the last decades. Two important facts drive this growth: 1) the need for growing more, and more nutritious crop plants, for the rapidly growing world population, a growth that has been marked by increasing social inequalities; 2) the need for better understanding of plant-environment interaction, thereby improving the ability to produce crops better adapted to uncertainties in future climate. While recent research has focused heavily on genomics, it is increasingly recognised that achieving these vital goals will require matching genomic insights with deeper understanding of phenomes. The main purpose of the Plant Phenome Project is to provide a philosophical analysis of the main concepts in plant science.. Full details

SPA Seminar: Laura Kotevska (Sydney) "The First Rule of Geometers: Arnauld and Nicole on Definition"

Reflection on how we acquire scientific knowledge is a striking feature of Arnauld and Nicole’s Logique, ou l’art de penser (1662). In this talk, I examine one part of their methodological writings inspired by geometry - their theory of definition. In so doing, I describe what is distinctive about Arnauld and Nicole’s view and use this to 1) examine their interventions in their Nouveaux éléments de géométrie, and 2) trace the influence of Arnauld and Nicole’s account of definition on the wider 17th century culture of rewriting the Elements of Euclid. I conclude with some emerging reflections on the epistemological reasons for Arnauld and Nicole’s distinction between real and nominal definitions and argue that this account is compatible with Arnauld’s commitments to Aristotelian science evident in the Logique and Nouveaux éléments de géométrie..

CRPR Seminar Series: Dr. Allan Butler

This seminar explores the implications that the study of complex systems has for economics and policy evaluations. Complex system cut across the social sciences but the focus on economics is particularly interesting as it challenges some of its fundamental assumptions. This in turn can lead to differing approaches to policy evaluation that complements rather than competes with existing models. Therefore, the purpose of this seminar is to demonstrate how complexity thinking can enrich approaches that economists use when evaluating policy. Allan is an experienced economist and researcher. Intellectually, he is interested in understanding how complexity systems function and their influence on economic thought. He currently works as a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the Royal Agricultural University, and has previously worked as a researcher fellow at the University of Exeter and Scottish Rural College..

CRPR Seminar Series: Dr. Katharina Graf

Hardly a meal is eaten without bread in Morocco. Despite a nutritional transition mirroring the global trend towards more sugar, fat and animal protein, cereals - largely in the form of wheat bread - remain highly valued and the unchallenged staple food of Moroccans. At the same time wheat is politically sensitive, for the legitimacy of the government historically rests on the provision of cheap flour and bread to its urban citizens. In this context, what cereals are eaten and how they are made into bread is meaningful not only culturally, but also economically and politically. To capture the multiple values of bread and to analyze their material and symbolic entanglements, I think of poor and recently urbanized Moroccans as ‘cereal citizens’. I argue that, in selecting cereals and making bread, recently urbanized poor Moroccans craft an ambivalent sense of belonging that celebrates their rural origins while accepting their dependence on cheap, largely imported wheat..

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

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.

The Poetics of Kurdish Resistance

As a minority divided among four nation-states (Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria), Kurds have been subjected to various degrees of political and cultural suppression, at times amounting to genocide. Kurdish oral and written literature has been a key component of the Kurdish political struggle for recognition and freedom and the very site of resistance and remembrance throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this panel, academics from the Universities of Exeter and Swansea discuss paths of resistance in Kurdish literature by examining the role poetry, prose and songs in accompanying as well as inspiring the political movements and keeping the resistance alive.

The case against perfection in the mean: Why it is time for an individualised approach to evidence for education

Analyses of educational interventions need to produce evidence that is relevant to specific groups of students. When a group is not the target population of an intervention, any analysis involving just that group is called subgroup analysis, which is often regarded as a statistical malpractice, as its findings are often underpowered, unreliable, prone to overinterpretation at best, or misleading at worst..

CRPR Seminar Series: Prof. Steffen Boehm

This paper develops a new governance model for restorative and regenerative agri-food economies that balance, economic, social and environmental factors in new ways. Based on a critique of dominant neoliberal and extractivist governance approaches, this paper will make a case for a circular economy that works at a wider regional and landscape scale. Such a new economy is not focused on efficiency and productivity – the main mantras of contemporary agri-food and economic policies – but on effectiveness and resilience. A circular economy is not dependent on endless expansion, i.e. economic growth, but can still provide resilience for people and ecosystems within a degrowth (e.g. Brexit) scenario. Prof. Steffen Boehm is professor of organisation and sustainability at the University of Exeter Business School, UK.. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Cultivating Bioscience Image: A New Approach to Understanding the Life Sciences and Life Science Education as Participatory Visualisation Process" David Hay (King's College London)

In this paper I set out to challenge the firmly held assumption that bioscience research is a quest for knowledge and the imperative to change, develop, modify, and manipulate things. In its place I will advance a different thesis, one that situates researchers and their objects in a line of understanding. Without contesting the obvious association that bioscience is for human benefit: healthcare, economy, conservation, and the like, I will also assert that these potential gains are only half the story and that while this goes on, there is another current of research in which human and non-human sensitivities are being cultivated by the practice of research for different – more important – reasons.

Sabiha Allouche : How to talk about drones: a view from Gaza

In this work, I attempt to decolonize the unchecked scholarship on drone warfare. From TV series, movies and video games, to textbooks, journal articles, and books; every space is apt for theorizing the drone. Although feminist and critical theorists took it upon themselves to rethink the drone and to intervene critically in their examination of it, their work, I argue, remains a self-contained theoretical loop that steers away from the original promise of Dona Haraway’s original Cyborg Manifesto since it is notoriously difficult to translate into feminist praxis. What's more, theirs is an approach that has legitimized abstraction and artificial lexicons to the extent they function as epistemic facts that overwrite matters of concerns. In particular, it speaks little to/of the lived reality - the quintessential feminist standpoint - of the Pakistani, Afghan and Gazan populations who encounter the drone daily. Full details

CRPR Seminar Series: Thomas Vetter - (Un-)learning through new communities of practice

This paper presents a qualitative case study analysis of the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association, (PFLA) which seeks to ‘kick the grain habit’ in ruminant farming by promoting, certifying and legitimizing purely pasture-fed production systems. Read through a social learning perspective, the paper traces how the PFLA has become established as a new and distinct community of practice. The role that unlearning plays in legitimizing new communities of practice such as the PFLA is highlighted. The PFLA case study informs debates about the potential role that new communities of practice can play in bringing alternative practices, knowledges, and products to peoples’ minds and markets. Thomas Vetter is a PhD candidate at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) and was conducting fieldwork in the United Kingdom. His research interest lies in the transformation of agri-food systems and its implications for society, economy, state and the environment. Full details

"Animal Research Unbound" Conference

Much social scientific, philosophical and historical work on animal research has followed the enclosures around research communities and the relatively closed nature of animal research to highlight the construction of boundaries around animal research. This includes the ethical boundary work used to justify the use of animals in research, the human-animal and species boundaries constructed through research practices, the regulatory boundaries shaping responsibilities for animal use and care, through the spatial and material infrastructures that separate the animal house and laboratory. Even work tracing the accelerating mobilities and movements of research using animals often starts from consideration of how these might overcome boundaries between previously closed species and spaces of animal research.

EGENIS seminar series: "On the Nature and Intelligibility of Medical Knowledge and Practitioners", Prof Dr Hakan Ertin

What kind of knowledge is produced in the realm of medicine? Does the medicine have exact results as mathematics and physics have? Or is medical knowledge not certain? Medical professionals believe that the result of medical knowledge is not always as precise as two and two is four. Why is this so? If so, what kind of results can be deduced from this situation? For instance, does complementary and alternative medicine take advantage of this situation? The complex nature of medical knowledge involves some challenges for scientists outside the medicine researching issues relating to the medical field. This is often encountered while medical (and/or technical) knowledge is being interpreted by social scientists. In fact, German pathologist Rudolf Virchow describes medicine as social science, but medical professionals - usually physicians - cannot even imagine that medicine can be a social science. This perception has become stronger as more and more new technologies enter -even occupy- th. Full details

"Science and Values" Integrated History and Philosophy of Science Workshop

Questions of value have always played a role in the history and philosophy of science. Philosophical questions surrounding scientific realism, for instance, often turn on the epistemic value or otherwise of virtues such as ‘simplicity’. While historians have long recognised this, philosophers have recently begun to acknowledge a wide range of values - the political, moral and aesethetic - in understanding scientific practices. This opens up a variety of new questions, both historical and philosophical, regarding the relationship between scientific practice and its historical development on the one hand, and the role of values—understood broadly. Consideration of the role of values in research provokes a host of historical and philosophical questions, typically well suited to an integrated HPS approach. This meeting of the iHPS will focus on such questions. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Public Health, Biopolitics, Security", Ariane Hanemaayer (Brandon University, Canada)

Biopolitics is a force relation that deploys security mechanisms to regularize general biological processes within a population according to a norm. These mechanisms are institutionalized around those uncertain or random elements within a population of living beings with the objective of optimizing the state of life. This presentation analyzes a case study of the preparation of The Health of a Nation – a strategy for England, a public health policy for the National Health Service in the 1990s. I argue that the power-knowledge of public health and the policies installed to organize and inform the rates of mortality within the NHS have congealed within a dispositif of security.. Full details

The Rise of ‘Populist Internationals’?: Exploring Transnational Activism from Left to Right

The aim of the workshop is threefold: 1. To empirically identify and map: (i) what are the main critiques offered by these left and right-wing strands of activism and what alternative visions do they articulate and advance; (ii) what are the main international networks and transnational connections between different left and right movements across Europe and North America; and (iii) identify and highlight the main practices of contestation. 2. To complicate the present conceptual understanding of populism in political science and IR, by exploring and identifying the key connections and differences between North American and European populist movements, leaders and agendas on the left and on the right. 3. To contribute to debates about the crisis, transformation and future prospects of the liberal international order and globalization. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "An empirical challenge for scientific pluralism – Alternatives or Integration?" Sophie Juliane Veigl (University of Vienna, Austria)

Scientific pluralism has become an increasingly popular position in the philosophy of science. One shared notion among scientific pluralists is that some or all natural phenomena require more than one theory, explanation or method to be fully understood. One distinction within pluralist positions is often overlooked. Some pluralists argue that several theories or explanations should be integrated (e.g. Mitchell, 2002). Others rather treat different theories and explanations as alternatives (e.g. Kellert, Longino and Waters, 2006). But does this distinction address the “nature” of the respective phenomena? And, consecutively: Are there genuine cases of “alternative” or “integrative” pluralism? In this talk I challenge this perspective and argue that it is not possible to uphold the distinction of alternatives vs. integration. Full details

Centre for Rural Policy Research Seminar: Prof. Paul Young - Rider Haggard, Rural England and the Romance of Frozen Meat

In the latter part of the 19th century, as a result of advances in preservation and transportation technologies that operated in tandem with extensive programmes of overseas pastoralization, Britain’s growing body of meat-eaters were increasingly devouring animals reared and slaughtered in the Americas and Australasia. While this meat was relatively cheap it was also controversial. This paper considers the work of the novelist, landowner and agriculturalist H. Rider Haggard in the context of the dynamic but debated rise of imported meat in late 19th century Britain. My paper will turn to three of Haggard’s most popular adventure stories arguing that they worked to stimulate the expansionist carnivorous culture that gripped Victorian and Edwardian Britain, and that became so foundational to the world-ecological development of meat-eating modernity. Paul Young is Associate Professor of Victorian Literature and Culture in the Department of English, University of Exeter.. Full details

When States Come Out: Europe's Sexual Minorities and the Politics of Visibility. Talk by Phillip M. Ayoub, PhD Associate Professor of Diplomacy and World Affairs, Occidental College

In the last two decades, the LGBT movement has gained momentum that is arguably unprecedented in speed and suddenness when compared to other human rights movements. This book investigates the recent history of this transnational movement in Europe, as well as backlashes to it, focusing on the diffusion of the norms it champions and the overarching question of why the trajectories of socio-legal recognition for LGBT minorities are so different across states. The book makes the case that a politics of visibility has engendered the interactions between movements and states that empower marginalized people - mobilizing actors to demand change, influencing the spread of new legal standards, and weaving new ideas into the fabrics of societies. It documents how this double-edged process of 'coming out' empowers some marginalized social groups by moving them to the center of political debate and public recognition and making it possible for them to obtain rights to which they have due claim.

New Foundations of Dispositionalism

Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest for dispositionalism, both in metaphysics and philosophy of science, and philosophy at large. Dispositionalism, the claim that there are genuine powers instantiated in the physical world, is taken by many to be the cornerstone of a new metaphysical system of distinct anti-Humean flavor, offering new accounts for (at least) physical modality, laws of nature, causation, the nature of properties, and much more. The former generation of dispositionalists secured dispositionalism as an important alternative in the logical space of positions, introducing many notions and issues that we debate today. Yet, despite this universal anti-Humean consensus, philosophers are still struggling with several fundamental aspects of dispositionalist metaphysics, and many related projects still have to leave the programmatic stage. Younger scholars are now working on the clarification of its fundamental tenets, and its compatibility with metaphysical stances. Full details

Centre for Rural Policy Research Seminar: Prof. Jesse Richardson - Hillbilly Resurrection: a critical look at socio-political-economic-legal issues in rural America through the lens of Appalachia

Shockwaves resonated throughout much of the United States (and the wider world) upon announcement of the 2016 US presidential election results—Donald Trump had secured a victory. Over half the voters (Hilary Clinton won a majority of the votes) and onlookers wondered despondently, “How did this happen?”. One hypothesis which has given rise to controversy is presented in Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance, a New York Times Best Seller, which provided fuel for a debate about the role of the deteriorating white working class in the election and post-industrial American society. Professor Jesse Richardson, Professor of Law at West Virginia University Law School and Lead Land Use Attorney at the WVU Land Use and Sustainable Development Law Clinic, will provide insights into the socio-political, economic, and legal aspects he encounters through his work in Appalachia that challenge many assumptions about rural America and arguments such as Vance’s..

Although dinosaur fossils were first found in England, a series of dramatic discoveries during the late 19th century turned North America into a world center for vertebrate paleontology. At the same time, the United States emerged as the world’s largest industrial economy, and creatures like tyrannosaurus, brontosaurus, and triceratops became emblems of American capitalism. Large, fierce, and spectacular, American dinosaurs soon dominated the popular imagination, making front-page headlines and appearing in feature films. Full details

EGENIS seminar series: "Citizen-Led Science and Participatory Science and Technology Studies" Dr Ernesto Schwartz-Marin (University of Exeter)

Weakness and vulnerability lie at the centre of what we call Citizen-Led Science. Paradoxically the strength of weak knowledge production is to systematically start our activities and enquiries not with a position authority, or in the know, but in the margins of what we have considered possible, desirable and realistic so far. Citizen-Led Science begins in the what if? Nonetheless, Citizen-Led Science will hardly (if ever) become solely a thought experiment, a foundational principle is that it should be a matter of practice: citizen-led scientists learn by doing. Actioninside and outside laboratory settingshelps to reveal the boundaries, limits and unspoken rules of the status quo and scientific production. Intervention is revelation. Taking inspiration from Karl Marx’s famous 11th thesis, I argue that all interpretations are interventions, but not all interventions are equal. In short disrupting is not necessarily subverting, and subversion does not necessarily lead to justice.. Full details

Academic evidence was widely criticised for a number of reasons, including lack of timeliness, accessibility, and relevance, as well as its poor presentation.

This paper looks at what counts as a variable in human epigenetics, and at how a combinatorial approach in postgenomic research is producing novel accounts of experience, embodiment, and inheritance, while also throwing up problems of interdisciplinary methods. When it comes to epigenetics, the question, “what matters, and how?” passes through a network of distinct disciplinary conventions of identification, assembled - sometimes speculatively - into cause and effect. Moreover, the process of identifying life experiences as biologically significant often follows established narrative conventions of understanding human life within different disciplines – commonly, psychological and sociological approaches – while also urging reconceptualisations of their significance and processes..

Gender, Sexual Orientation and Stereotypes: Challenges for Lesbian and Gay Candidates

This paper explores how the public stereotypes politicians based on gender and sexual orientation when cued about these identities in low information environments. While many studies examine high profile races to demonstrate the impact that media coverage and its potential to trigger stereotypes has on opportunities for female or queer candidates, few studies explore its implications in typical elections at the riding level..

SPA Seminar Series: Dr Geoff Hughes (University of Exeter) - "Cracks in the Screen: Technology, Media Liberalization and Authority in Networked Jordan"

This talk will examine how Jordan’s rapidly evolving media sector is transforming the nature of authority in Jordan. An older generation of leaders, known as sheikhs, confronts technologies they often don’t understand and a new generation that has little respect for their elders’ genealogical claims. Amidst a proliferation of social media tools that allow young people to use the idiom of the tribe to act quickly and decisively—even violently—in the political field without regard for their elders, the Jordanian government seeks to reassert control over a media sector that is increasingly international, for-profit, and privately held. Yet a new generation of would-be tribal leaders is rushing into the breach. Drawing on case studies of sheikhs, policemen, and journalists, I argue that the future of authority in Jordan will depend on the continued ability of leaders to use media to move between various scales, representing themselves individually while also convincingly standing in for li.

Managing Intra-State Territorial Contestation: Iraq’s Disputed Territories in Comparative Perspective

Iraq’s Disputed Territories remain a source of contestation and instability. Located in the north of Iraq, this broad swathe of territory lying to the south of the Kurdistan Region, and including within it parts of the provinces of Nineveh, Erbil, Salahadin, Kirkuk, and Diyala, the Disputed Territories remain a focus of contestation between the Government of Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government following the Kurdistan Region referendum of 2017 and the subsequent military response of the Government of Iraq. Furthermore, while the immediate threat of Islamic State actions has diminished, conditions in the Disputed Territories continue to create opportunities for the resurrection of militancy and insurgency, associated with the Sunni community, against the Government of Iraq and its allies.

EGENIS seminar series: “The Greenpeace Research Laboratories and the role of science within a global environmental campaigning organisation”, Dr David Santillo (Greenpeace Research Laboratories, University of Exeter)

In working towards a more sustainable future across all aspects of society, Greenpeace aims to bear witness to environmental problems and to support work to identify innovative solutions. Campaigning is in part about winning ‘hearts and minds’, but that is only likely to lead to secure change in the right directions if work is underpinned by a strong evidential basis, including in science. The role of the Greenpeace Research Laboratories, which have been based within the University of Exeter and affiliated with the School of Biosciences for more than a quarter of a century, is to provide objective scientific advice and primary analytical research capabilities to Greenpeace’s offices around the world, across a range of disciplines.

SPA Seminar Series: Dr Kirsten Walsh (University of Exeter) - "Newton’s Metaphysics in Practice"

In his methodological statements, Newton (in)famously declared ‘hypotheses non fingo’ and explicitly eschewed metaphysical speculation. However, every edition of the Opticks and Principia contains hypotheses and metaphysical speculation. Newton’s commentators thus face a dilemma: they can take Newton’s metaphysical speculations seriously, but this involves downplaying the sincerity of his methodological claims; or they can take his methodological claims seriously, and downplay the significance of his metaphysical speculations. In this paper, I offer a solution to the dilemma: study Newton’s metaphysics in practice. That is, focus on the role of Newton’s metaphysical discussions, constructs and commitments in the context of his scientific work. What we find is that Newton’s metaphysical speculation plays a vital supportive function in his experimental philosophy. Recognising this feature of Newton’s work is revelatory, both of Newton’s methodology. Full details

Motion has always been observed, described and visualized: cells “dancing”, “swimming”, or “swarming”, for example, or “twitching”, “floating”, and “curling” have vividly brought to life the hidden world inside our bodies. But what is biological motion? While motion has always been central to studying the living world it appears to have been taken for granted in biological analysis. Full details

Centre for Rural Policy Research Seminar Series

James Whetlor founded Cabrito after keeping a few goats to solve a land management problem. He was cooking at River Cottage at the time and a few of the goats ended up on the menu. After seeing how well the kids sold, James thought perhaps there was a market for kid goat meat. Cabrito was created and has continued to grow a market for kid goat meat. All Cabrito kids are a by-product of the dairy industry and in the past would have been euthanized shortly after birth. In a world of dwindling resources and rising food prices Cabrito believe this cannot be justified. They now have a network of farms producing high quality meat from a previously wasted resource. James’ seminar will reflect on the development of his business and its mission, sharing his thoughts on the production and consumption of goat.

"Expressivism about the Attribution of Mental Illness" Dr Sam Wilkinson (University of Exeter)

Egenis seminar series. There is an on-going debate surrounding different answers to the question “What is mental illness?” My aim in this paper is not to engage directly with this debate, but to see the consequences of adopting a form of expressivism with regards to the attribution of mental illness. In other words, I am (at least initially) retreating from the contested ground about what mental illness might be, to an exploration of what attributing mental illness might do. I argue that calling someone mentally ill expresses (in a sense that I will clarify) certain evaluative attitudes (in a sense that I will clarify). I end by investigating consequences of this view for related issues, including: cultural relativism, the nature of illness more generally, and, returning to the more traditional debate, a potential answer to what mental illness might actually be.

However, a comparative study of leaders' public rhetoric has proven elusive due to the difficulties of developing comparable measures across countries and over time. The advent of social media sites, and its widespread adoption by world leaders, offers a unique new source of data to overcome these challenges. Full details

At a time when multilateralism and the value of international organisations are being questioned, not least by the United States, the nation that did more than any other to establish the global liberal order in the first place, Jamie Shea will examine whether NATO is still fit for purpose. Is the Atlantic Alliance resilient enough to withstand the shocks from within and without that are currently testing its solidarity? Will its current strategy be enough to guarantee Europe security and to rebuild a solid transatlantic partnership?. Full details

"Creativity as Strategy", Dr Adrian Currie (University of Exeter)

Egenis seminar series. Against most philosophers who are interested in creativity, I think there is good reason to want an account of creativity that doesn’t tie it to agents or individuals. First, the arguments for tying creativity to agenthood are based on unstable, historically contingent intuitions which are a bad basis for analysis. Second, if creativity is importantly linked to knowledge-production, and knowledge-production is best thought of as a population-level phenomena, then we should develop ways of understanding creativity at the population-level. Third, some arguments for human exceptionalism turn on our capacity to be creative, and I suspect our ability to articulate and critique such positions are marred if we cannot get a non-anthropocentric grip on creativity in the first place: decoupling creativity from agenthood is one way of doing this. In light of this, I present an account of creativity which is non-agential and non-purposeful but, I think, both deserves to be named creativity and sheds light on arguments for human exceptionalism.

Cross-Border Litigation in England and Wales: New Data - Brexit Implications – Preliminary Research Findings

Professor Mihail Danov Cross-Border Litigation in England and Wales: New Data - Brexit Implications – Preliminary Research Findings Abstract: The presentation of the relevant preliminary research findings is made within the framework of a pilot study financed by the UoE Centre for Commercial and Corporate Law. The purpose of this pilot study is to measure the expected initial impact of Brexit on parties’ strategies which will in turn have a bearing on the litigants’ access to legal remedies (as well as on settlement dynamics) in cross-border disputes. The newly generated data will enable us to consider the correlation between a possible change in the legal landscape and the parties’ alternative strategies as well as to analyse the relationship between the litigants’ tactics and private parties’ access to justice in cross-border cases before the English and Welsh courts. The pilot study involves also Professor Paul Beaumont and Dr Jayne Holliday from the University of Aberdeen. Subject to the AHRC funding, we are hoping to organise a series of workshops at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies – Queen Mary University of London. Full details

Please come, sit and share my view

Communities in general, and rural communities in particular, punctuate their lives with events that bring people together and celebrate aspects of culture. Rural communities in the United Kingdom (UK) are no exception and there is a heavily populated calendar of rural events, celebrating touchstones such as farming, hunting and horses. Thus there are numerous agricultural shows, game fairs, and horse events such as gymkhanas and horse shows. Research with regard to events such as these has been limited. There is a feeling amongst many people in the rural community that the UK is increasingly dominated by urban, as opposed to rural, concerns and that this cultural influence is changing the nature of many rural events. This paper aims to explore and articulate some of these concerns. In order to do this an autoethnographic approach has been adopted as a method, utilising logocentrism as an ontological lens. I grew up immersed in the culture and traditions of rural England. I was taken hunting and was attending horse and agricultural shows before I could walk. As a young man I worked on farms and helped organise and run rural events. As such I view(ed) the world from a perspective that reflects my cultural upbringing. I find it difficult living in an urban dominated ‘society’ where I consider rural events are increasingly urbanised to a point where the life, past and present, of the countryside becomes a sideshow. This commodification of rural life in the UK is something that has local and also global relevance, though there are ways that event organisers can address some of these concerns.

"Inductive risk in framework shifts: the case of cultural evolution", Azita Chellappoo (University of Cambridge)

Egenis seminar series. Non-epistemic values have been long-acknowledged to play a significant role in scientific inquiry: for example, in problem selection, and directing the use of scientific knowledge. Douglas (2000) provides a widely-applied account of another avenue for non-epistemic values to play a legitimate role: inductive risk. Inductive risk refers to the risk involved with the acceptance or rejection of a hypothesis: in the decision whether to accept a given hypothesis or not, there is always the risk of either accepting a false hypothesis (a Type 1 error, or ‘false positive’) or rejecting a true hypothesis (a Type 2 error, or ‘false negative’). When these errors have non-epistemic consequences, non-epistemic values will influence the ‘rule of acceptance’ (the level of evidence or statistical significance required to accept the hypothesis).

Dr Sejad Mekic (Visiting Fellow, University of Exeter) presents "Husein Dozo: A Bosnian Mufti"

The first of our Visiting Speakers for 2018-2019 is Dr Sejad Mekic who is currently a Visiting Fellow at the University of Exeter. This talk will examine the Islamic modernist thought of Husein Đozo (1912-182), a prominent Balkan scholar who lived and worked in Titoist Yugoslavia. Through the medium of his fatāwā (legal rulings), Qur’anic interpretation and other writings, Đozo responded to the challenges he and his people were faced with, above all the so-called ‘Yogoslav Communism’ and modernity. As a Muslim scholar who lived in a European, secular, multi-religious and multi-cultural society, Đozo and his work present us with a particularly exciting and dynamic case through which to examine the innovative interpretations of Islam. Moreover, in Đozo’s scholarly work we are presented with a propitious moment for the academic, researcher and lay reader alike to analyse a ‘European-Islamic’ voice whose importance has yet to me articulated. This is particularly the case in the fields of ethics and faith, interfaith dialogue and the study of religious identity within Muslim minority communities. Dr Mekic will argue that Husein Đozo was the most important proponent of Islamic modernism in the countries of former Yugoslavia in the second half of the twentieth century. It wil also be argues that through the prism of Đozo’s spirit and thought, the ideas of modernist and reformist interpretations of Islam gained a local ‘Yugoslav’ dimension.
