The Worlds of Mandaean Priests

Mandaeans, sometimes called Sabians, practise an ancient and endangered religion. Conflict in the Middle East has forced them out of their homelands in Iraq and Iran in ever greater numbers. Although Mandaeans depend on their priests for preserving religious knowledge and performing complex rituals, fewer than 50 priests now remain worldwide. We have interviewed priests, recorded the key rituals and shot documentary films in the largest communities of Australia and Sweden. Full details

“Imagining a Peaceful Iraq: visions of stability after ISIS from policy to popular culture”

What challenges do the Iraqi people face in imagining a peaceful society after the onslaught of the so-called Islamic state and almost 80 years of instability? Yasamin Alttahir, project manager of a counter ISIS communications project based in Baghdad, explores the experiences of trauma and insecurity from an Iraqi perspective and poses the question of how meaningful reconciliation and stability could be imagined. This seminar will offer a glimpse from a first-hand account at how Iraqis are articulating not only their pain and frustration, but also their vision of peace and unity through art and popular culture. It will also examine recent research on political participation, economic reform and human rights. No registration required.. Full details

Seminar by Professor Carol Taylor (Sheffield Hallam University) Posthumanist/ new material feminist imaginaries for higher education research and pedagogy

Posthumanism is a mobile term, a constellation of theories, concepts, approaches and practices which share an interest in destabilizing binaries, decentering the human, and forging new ways of doing and thinking ethics in relation. Posthumanism has been seen as both a ‘reaction’ to Humanism (Wolfe, 2010) and a recognition that the current era of the Anthropocene is having a destructive impact on the planet and its inhabitants. It is for these reasons that Rosi Braidotti (2013: 2) suggests that the post-human condition has introduced a ‘qualitative shift’ in our thinking about what ‘the basic unit of common reference is for our species, our polity and our relationships’, that Karen Barad (2007: 142) urges attention to ethico-onto-epistemological understandings of how matter comes to matter in more-than-human entanglements, and Donna Haraway (2016) argues for a speculative feminist practice of ‘making kin’ through relational acts of string-figuring..

New Approaches to Political Cohesion in Democratic Processes

This workshop places an emphasis on the relationship between democratic processes and political cohesion that goes beyond the simplistic formula of competitive democrats. Political cohesion, or the commitment to a common political project, is a matter of degree and processes leading to the peaceful resolution of conflict are just one way of contributing to this phenomenon. Indeed, political processes can embody values and produce norms that may legitimate the political system in one way or another and lead to much deeper forms of political cohesion among members of a political community than that which is allowed for by the mere avoidance of violent conflict. On the one hand, we consider the circumstances under which competitive elections can do more than peacefully resolve conflict by contributing in a deeper sense to citizens’ commitment to democratic values. On the other hand, as procedural and substantive democrats recognise, there is much more to democracy than free and fair elections. We therefore expand our inquiry beyond election to understand how other democratic values and activities may contribute towards political cohesion.. Full details

The similarities and variations in language-to-print mapping relationships suggest universal as well as language/script-specific processes in early reading development. Full details

Seminar by Dr Joanne Pearce (University College London) From Anthroposophy to non-confessional preparation for spirituality?

It has been suggested common schools might be able to learn from spiritual education in Steiner schools. This assumes practice in Steiner schools is compatible with the aims of spiritual education in common schools. I question this by considering whether the former is confessional, as the latter should not be. I explain how my concern about the potentially confessional nature of Steiner spiritual education arose. I then argue for a nuanced understanding of confessional education, distinguishing between ‘weak’ and ‘strong’ confessional education, as well as between confessional education as intentional and as defined by outcome. I argue that spiritual education in common schools should prepare pupils for spirituality, without being confessional. I consider whether Steiner schools are confessional by drawing upon findings from research conducted at six Steiner schools. Full details
