Climate change scientist and artist, Gordon Bromley, has launched a truly special art exhibition on campus. ‘Art on the Edge’ features intricate drawings and paintings from Gordon’s fieldwork on the front line of climate change, including in Antarctica.

According to Gordon, “The world is stunning and if we don’t appreciate what we have to lose then we don’t know it’s going.” The exhibition gives personal insights into his research and the landscapes that inspire it.

This free exhibition is on display for a month in the Hardiman Building foyer near the entrance to the James Hardiman Library.

'The Human Right to Resist'

Dr Shannonbrooke Murphy, Middlesex University School of Law

Co-hosted with the Whitaker Institute Conflict, Humanitarianism and Security Cluster 

What is the ‘human right to resist’? You won’t find it mentioned in human rights textbooks or included in the standard human rights curriculum. Yet it has an ancient pedigree, has received acknowledgement by some of the great publicists of international law, is codified in approximately 40 current constitutions, and also has limited recognition in customary international law and human rights treaties. It deserves to take its rightful place in the human rights lexicon. This lunchtime seminar will provide an introduction to this marginalized legal concept and its status in contemporary positive law.
