Refugee Studies Centre Annual Elizabeth Colson Lecture | Innocence: understanding a political concept

Speaker: Professor Miriam Ticktin (The New School for Social Research) With the grounding assumption that innocence plays a central role in the politics of forced migration and asylum, this lecture will delve into the idea of innocence, trying to understand it and render its workings more legible, and arguing that it is a political – not simply a religious or moral – concept. Register: Contact Anneli Chambliss Howes (see details below).

Organised by Refugee Studies Centre.

Call for Papers: Trans-Atlantic Dialogues on Cultural Heritage: Heritage, Tourism and Traditions

Trans-Atlantic dialogues on cultural heritage began as early as the voyages of Leif Ericson and Christopher Columbus and continue through the present day. Each side of the Atlantic offers its own geographical and historical specificities expressed and projected through material and immaterial heritage. However, in geopolitical terms and through everyday mobilities, people, objects and ideas flow backward and forward across the ocean, each shaping the heritage of the other, for better or worse, and each shaping the meanings and values that heritage conveys. Please send abstracts of 300 words no later than 15th December 2014 to ironbridge@contacts.bham.ac.uk

Organised by Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage, University of Birmingham and the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management and Policy (CHAMP), University of Illinois .

Humanitarian Innovation Conference 2015: Facilitating Innovation

In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit, a key focus of the conference will explore how we enable innovation by and for affected communities. What does it mean to take a human-centred approach seriously, and to engage in co-creation with affected populations? It will also seek to examine what facilitation means across the wider humanitarian ecosystem, and how we can better convene the collective talents of people within and across traditional and non-traditional humanitarian actors.

Organised by Humanitarian Innovation Project. In collaboration with World Humanitarian Summit.
