School of Advanced Study http://www.sas.ac.uk/ a PORT for Modern Languages The viva: the examiner's point of view Examiners talk through their preparation and what they expect of the student. These video clips were produced in 2008 to offer advice and guidance to research students approaching their PhD viva or preparing for post-doctoral job interviews in academia and beyond. The aim is to provide input from both sides of the table: they feature viva examiners, supervisors and experienced interviewers as well as those who have recently got their PhDs. If you are looking for general advice in dealing with an interdisciplinary topic, approaching your viva or life after the PhD, these clips can help guide you through the planning and processes. These videos were created by the Institute of Modern Languages Research (School of Advanced Study) as part of the 'a PORT for Modern Languages' training resource. As such the videos are particularly relevant to the Modern Languages disciplines, but will also be of use to humanities students more generally.

Several eminent German art historians have announced that the completion of the edition of Warburg's writings is now a national priority. As the holder of Warburg's papers the Warburg Institute is actively involved in editing Warburg's writings. Walter Benjamin was almost a generation younger, but his legacy, in contrast, has been much more widely discussed. The comparative cultural historical method Warburg and Benjamin introduced independently offers ample ground for comparison, as scholars have shown in recent years. By looking at historical periods with a similar transitional character, Warburg and Benjamin developed radically new ways of perceiving and presenting the historical changes they observed. Above all they were both interested in human psychology as a constitutional factor for the phenomenon called 'culture'. The terminology they developed through intuition is based on similar ideas, and has indeed become part of the language of the discipline of cultural history. The aim of this conference to explore the parallels between two eminent theoretical thinkers and to inspire a new attention to Warburg's writings in the UK.

The Developmental State Experiment in Africa: The Experiences of Ghana and South Africa
 
01:12:06
25-03-13 Institute of Commonwealth Studies http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://events.sas.ac.uk/icws/events/view/13297/The+Developmental+State+Experiment+in+Africa%3A+The+Experiences+of+Ghana+and+South+Africa The Developmental State Experiment in Africa: The Experiences of Ghana and South Africa Professor Joseph R.A. Ayee, FGA; Rector, MountCrest University College, Accra and Emeka Anyaoku Visiting Professor of Commonwealth Studies, University of London ABSTRACT Much ink has been poured on the development project in Africa because of the persistence of poverty and lack of economic transformation in the midst of resources which have either been tapped or yet to be tapped. While some scholars have blamed structural factors (the absence of meaningful diversification and transformation and lack of facilitative environment for private sector growth) and political economy vulnerabilities (such as in effective leadership, weak institutions and corruption) as the cause of lack of economic and political progress in Africa, others have pointed accusing fingers at colonialism, neo-colonialism and an unjust world economic order. In the rush to promote and enhance development in Africa, nine development strategies, some of them overlapping chronologically, have been designed and implemented often under the direction and support of the development partners. Even though these strategies may have contributed to increased GDP growth over the years in African countries, they have largely failed because of a number of factors, namely, (i) ineffective leadership; (ii) poor policy implementation; (iii) policy discontinuity; (iv) slow industrialization; and (v) inadequate conducive environment for private sector growth. The failure of these strategies or paradigms has led to the continued search for an appropriate strategy to address Africa's development predicament. This search has also been exacerbated by the rise of China, East Asia and some Latin American countries as newly industrializing countries, the 2008 global economic crisis stemming from market failure and the renewed interest in the role and nature of the state in the development process especially its role in reviving the economies of many Western countries with bail-out packages by the state. These developments no doubt point to not only the role of the state in development but also the kind of state that will promote and facilitate socio-economic development. The kind of state to shoulder the burden of socio-economic development is the developmental state which according to (Evans 2008: 13) "If ... it was important to 20th century economic success ...will be much more important to 21st century success". Using Ghana (considered as a non-developmental state) and South Africa (considered to be an emerging developmental state) as case studies, the paper examines the extent or the degree to which the two countries have met or achieved the key eight features of the developmental state. Some recommendations are also made with the aim of consolidating progress thus far and deepening or accelerating the process. In doing so, it is hoped that the lecture will make a contribution to the literature on the concept of the developmental state.

Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick Documentary Q&A - The Untold History of the United States

The Untold History of the United States re-examines America's financial, diplomatic and military influence on the long twentieth century to produce a polemical account of the rise and fall of the American Empire. Oliver Stone begins by talking about how he and Peter Kuznick got together in the 1990s and which has now resulted in this current collaboration on this project to look at the Atomic bomb, the cold war, and United States history to the present day. A massive hurdle that they had to overcome was to convince the government that the American people were ready to deal with the history of the Atomic bomb seriously and critically. This book and television series is the result, offering an alternative and controversial look at the United States, and its role in history. Questions asked and answered: 1. How have peers in academia have responded to this project? 2. Is this project a step into a new field for you, away from what you had done before? 3. How do you balance entertainment with the complexity of the past? 4. Does the panel ascribe to the belief of the new world order? 5. How did you decide on what would be contained in each segment of the series? 6. Are you really suggesting that Stalin had no interest in occupying Eastern Europe and Western Europe, if not because of the Atomic bomb? 7. What evidence do you have the Harry Truman knew the evidence rather than having to make a hard political judgement? 8. How do you think we should take this awareness of other versions of History to the youth of America? 9. Were Wallace and Truman both searching for legitimisation of American capitalism? 10. Production of a rewritten history -- is this a new way of bringing the war home? 11. The Atomic bomb was originally built with the Germans in mind, rather than the Japanese. Did this affect your opinions? 12. What about the Latin American and the eastern aspects of the story. 13. Is Obama a pivot of history?

The Chandaria Lectures 2016 | Lecture 1 - Prediction Machines
 
58:16
18-10-2016 Institute of Philosophy http://www.sas.ac.uk/ Institute: http://philosophy.sas.ac.uk/ The Chandaria Lectures 2016 Lecture 1 - Prediction Machines Professor Andy Clark (University of Edinburgh) The Institute of Philosophy is delighted to announce that this year's Chandaria Lecture series will be given by Professor Andy Clark of the University of Edinburgh. Biological brains are increasingly cast as 'prediction machines'; evolved organs forever trying to predict their own streams of incoming sensory stimulation. Rich, world-revealing perception only occurs, these stories suggest, when cascading neuronal activity is able to match the incoming sensory signal with a multi-level stream of apt 'top-down' predictions. This blurs the lines between perception, thought, and imagination, revealing them as inextricably tied together. In this talk, I first introduce this general explanatory schema, and then discuss these (and other) implications. I end by asking what all this suggests concerning the fundamental nature of our perceptual contact with the world. Andy Clark was appointed to the Chair in Logic and Metaphysics at University of Edinburgh in 2004. Prior to that he had taught at the University of Glasgow, the University of Sussex, Washington University in St Louis, and Indiana University, Bloomington. He was Director of the Philosophy/Neuroscience/Psychology Program at Washington University in St Louis, and Director of the Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University. His research interests include philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence, including robotics, artificial life, embodied cognition, and mind, technology and culture.

The Chandaria Lectures 2017 with Prof Cecilia Heyes - 02
 
41:15
Prof. Cecilia Heyes (University of Oxford) Cognitive Gadgets Evolutionary psychology casts the human mind as a collection of cognitive instincts - organs of thought shaped by genetic evolution and constrained by the needs of our Stone Age ancestors. This picture was plausible 25 years ago but, I argue, it no longer fits the facts. Research involving infants and nonhuman animals now suggests that genetic evolution has merely tweaked the human mind, making us more friendly than our pre-human ancestors, more attentive to other agents, and giving us souped-up, general-purpose mechanisms of learning, memory and control. Using these resources, our special-purpose organs of thought are built in the course of development through social interaction. They are products of cultural rather than genetic evolution; cognitive gadgets rather than cognitive instincts.

But what if Moctezuma did not surrender? What if the events of that day, and those that surrounded it, have been depicted in ways that created a false image of the conquistador and emperor? How might our understanding of the entire Spanish Conquest be altered if we turn upside down the stereotypes that comprise the mythical Cortés and Moctezuma? Might our assumptions about all well-known historical moments be thereby challenged?

Children during the early years are amazingly receptive to the benefits of positive learning opportunities, but at the same time vulnerable to stress and lack of positive learning opportunities. Positioning children as participating subjects, knowers and social actors, rather than the passive objects of socialization, is also an important part of recognising their rights. The lecture outlines how New Zealand's early childhood system became a model of best practice for the recognition of children's rights in early childhood education, and the threats posed by current fiscal policies to its ongoing integrity.

PhD Masterclass: How to complete a PhD in 3 years
 
55:37
11-02-2016 Institute of Advanced Legal Studies http://www.sas.ac.uk http://www.sas.ac.uk/support-research/public-events/2016/phd-masterclass-how-complete-phd-3-years Institute: http://ials.sas.ac.uk/ PhD Masterclass: How to complete a PhD in 3 years Dr Mazhar Ilahi The PhD Masterclass What is it? An opportunity to discuss PhD research with colleagues, with expert input from senior academics experienced in PhD research. The discussion is informal and round-table. Topics may be suggested in advance via the Convenor. Although colleagues may not be able to give expert advice on the specific subject matter of your PhD, they may be able to give advice on research generally. Why have it? PhD Research can sometimes feel isolating, both physically and intellectually. We are focused on one relatively narrow legal question, a subject that perhaps most others will have little interest in. We have to motivate ourselves and direct the course of our own study. A Masterclass can hopefully ameliorate the sense of isolation and make us feel more part of an academic community, Even hearing that other people are having the same problems as us can diminish those problems in our own heads. We can also hear useful tops from others on how they have solved problems that may be devilling us. When and where? Masterclasses are held approximately once every month in IALS. An email will be sent to all IALS PhD students in advance informing them of the date and time. They are generally held during the day. Who is eligible to attend? At present, the focus is on IALS PhD students. however, if you are studying for a PhD in law at another institution and would like to attend, please contact the Convenor. Provided that the numbers are sufficiently small, there will be no difficulty with having students from outside IALS present. Sample topics for discussion - What happens in a Viva? - How should I select my external examiners? - Should I use Endnote, Zotero or neither? - At what point should I stop reading and start writing? - How much of my own personal experience and opinion should I include? Disclaimer The Masterclasses should not be seen as an alternative to the advice and instruction received from your Supervisors, but should rather complement them.

The legacy of Nazi Germany still has a strong hold on us – in daily news stories, in bookshops and cinemas, on television and on the Internet. But how has our thinking about the Third Reich changed over the decades? In a rare public event, two of the world’s leading historians of modern Germany reflect on the ways in which our understanding of Nazi Germany has been transformed and continues to evolve. The discussion will be followed by a reception to mark the recent publication of Richard Evans’ The Third Reich in History and Memory and Nikolaus Wachsmann’s KL: A History of the Nazi Concentration Camps.

'Denise Levertov: Poetry as a Way to Prayer'

The analogy and continuity between poetry and prayer, the poetical and the mystical, has often been discussed. The psychological mechanism used by grace to raise us to prayer is, Henry Bremond wrote, the same as that set in motion in poetic experience. Both poetry and prayer are rooted in an inner experience of concrete and fundamental values so that both invite, using the language of John Henry Newman, a real rather than a notional assent. Reading a poem can be perceived as a prayerful experience. W.H. Auden wrote: 'to pray is to pay attention to something or someone other than oneself. Whenever a man so concentrates his attention -- on a landscape, a poem, a geometrical problem, an idol, or the True God -- that he completely forgets his own ego and desires, he is praying.' And yet it is also true that we have no shared understanding of the terms 'prayer' and 'poetry'. Some might claim that there is no connection between them. The traditions of poetry and prayer are numerous and the connections between them elusive. And poetry is, self-evidently, not exactly the same as prayer. The conference will consider the similarities, interrelatedness and differences between poetry and prayer. What do poetry and prayer share? How do they differ? In what ways do they relate to each other? Theoretical reflections and historical surveys will provide a context for the discussion of individual texts and authors from different countries and cultural and religious traditions.

Biological Identity Conference - David S. Oderberg
 
48:36
02-06-2016 Institute of Philosophy http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://www.sas.ac.uk/support-research/public-events/2016/biological-identity-2-day-conference-registration-required Institute: http://philosophy.sas.ac.uk/ Biological Identity Conference Day One The Great Unifier David S. Oderberg (Reading) An organism is a paradigm of an individual substance. As such, it is a unified entity distinguished metaphysically both from parts of organisms and the larger entities to which some organisms belong. Unity, however, cannot be taken for granted. There is a 'unity problem': assuming organisms have essences, what holds together the constituents of those essences? I argue that nothing less than Aristotelian substantial form will do, contrasting the hylemorphic solution with the important approach of Hoffman and Rosenkrantz to biological unity. I then apply hylemorphism to difficult cases that might be thought to challenge the idea that organisms have a special ontological status in virtue of their peculiar unity. Recent debates in metaphysics on personal identity and material constitution have seen a rise of theories which appeal to a biological understanding of identity. So-called animalists claim that the puzzles of standard psychological theories of personal identity can be avoided by the insight that we are essentially animals or organisms rather than persons and that the necessary and sufficient conditions of our identity over time therefore are purely biological in character. Moreover, it has been argued (most famously by Peter van Inwagen) that if there are any composite objects at all in the world, then these are those studied by biology. According to this view, there are no inanimate things like stones or cars, strictly speaking, as these turn out to be just collections of particles; but there are living organisms, due to a special unity making them each one rather than many. It is time to investigate whether, and if so how, the concept of biological identity can indeed serve the functions metaphysicians attribute to it. For that purpose, the conference will aim to confront the metaphysical motives for proposing biological conceptions of identity, diachronic as well as synchronic, with the scientifically informed research on biological identity which has been carried out within the philosophy of biology but which so far has been little noticed by the metaphysics community. The conference seeks to connect these two hitherto largely separate debates so as to put future metaphysical allusions to biological identity on more solid grounds and, at the same time, to raise awareness for the metaphysical implications of the empirically founded models of biological identity developed in philosophy of biology.

Modern Forms of Fashion: Warburg, Simmel, Benjamin

15-06-12 The Warburg Institute http://warburg.sas.ac.uk/index.php?id=614 http://www.sas.ac.uk/ Cornelia Zumbusch Warburg, Benjamin and Kulturwissenschaft Conference: "Modern Forms of Fashion: Warburg, Simmel, Benjamin" In continental Europe the intellectual legacy of Aby Warburg is currently a major topic of debate. Several eminent German art historians have announced that the completion of the edition of Warburg's writings is now a national priority. As the holder of Warburg's papers the Warburg Institute is actively involved in editing Warburg's writings. Walter Benjamin was almost a generation younger, but his legacy, in contrast, has been much more widely discussed. The comparative cultural historical method Warburg and Benjamin introduced independently offers ample ground for comparison, as scholars have shown in recent years. By looking at historical periods with a similar transitional character, Warburg and Benjamin developed radically new ways of perceiving and presenting the historical changes they observed. Above all they were both interested in human psychology as a constitutional factor for the phenomenon called 'culture'. The terminology they developed through intuition is based on similar ideas, and has indeed become part of the language of the discipline of cultural history. The aim of this conference to explore the parallels between two eminent theoretical thinkers and to inspire a new attention to Warburg's writings in the UK.

At his passing, an enormous amount of media material was produced reflecting on multiple aspects of his life and work: a considerable amount of this was relatively superficial, and understandably hagiographic. Now more time has passed, there is both opportunity and need for a more dispassionate assessment of the complexity of the Mandela phenomenon: the continuing importance of debates about the armed struggle and his relationship with the SACP; Mandela, the ANC and Africa during the liberation struggle; the role and position of Mandela in the overall South African liberation struggle and relations within the ANC and with other movements and strands of thought, including Black Consciousness; serious discussion of his place in the critical time of negotiated transition; and a sober assessment of Mandela’s record in office, as revolutionary leader turned administrator, and national leader in the rapidly changing post-Cold War world; and his role in Africa and the international system. This seminar intends to contribute to the on-going debate of myths versus realities of Mandela, and the complexities of his legacy. The conference is being organised by the ICWS, in conjunction with two of its Senior Research Fellows, Keith Somerville (former BBC World news programmes editor and currently Lecturer in Humanitarian Communications, Centre for Journalism, University of Kent; and Martin Plaut (Africa Editor, BBC World Service News).
