NUI Galway’s Moore Institute and Galway University Foundation will host a climate-themed exhibition, Art on the Edge, in the Hardiman Research Building during the month of November. Featuring original artwork by NUI Galway physical geographer, Dr Gordon Bromley, the exhibition includes a mix of drawings and paintings captured from his international field research.

The exhibition will be launched at 5pm on Thursday, 1 November followed by a seminar at 6pm by Dr Bromley on The business end of climate research, showcasing ongoing climate research at NUI Galway. The event and exhibition is free and open to the public.

Art on the Edge displays science-inspired artwork from almost two decades of field research into earth’s climate system. Dr Gordon Bromley, an NUI Galway Foundation Research Leader, describes the exhibition as “bringing the public face-to-face with climate science – and climate scientists – through a lens of art.” It will feature Dr Bromley’s artwork from the high deserts of Peru to the edge of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, coupled with human artefacts (scientific and everyday items left on the ice such as drink cans, old radiosondes, and a geologic pick axe). It will also feature photographs and video footage from Dr Bromley’s field work in Antarctica, Greenland, Peru, Colombia, and Scotland, demonstrating how everyday people use our landscapes as laboratories and fostering the notion of climate science as a vital element of our community.

The crackdown on human rights defenders and civil society continues in Turkey despite the end of the state of emergency in July 2018. It was first declared in July 2016 after the violent coup attempt that left over 240 people dead and thousands injured. Since then the Turkish government issued over 30 executive decrees that bypassed parliamentary and judicial scrutiny. More than 100,000 people faced criminal investigation and over 50,000 people remain in pre-trial detention. Those include human rights defenders, academics, journalists, lawyers, politicians and former public officials, who were allegedly connected to the group that was behind the coup attempt.

In this talk, we will discuss what it takes to be a human rights defender in Turkey during this post-coup crackdown. While talking about the specific risks faced, including judicial harassment, arbitrary detention and police violence, insights will be given into the political context in Turkey, focusing on issues such as judicial independence, repressive anti-terror laws, censorship, military operations and curfews in the south-east of Turkey, as well as gender and LGBTI+ rights.

All Welcome!

Every week staff, students and members of the local community come together to practice mindfulness i.e. present moment awareness, without judgement. 

 

Sessions are led by staff, students and members of the community who have been practicing meditation for many years, though are not necessarily teachers of mindfulness.  So while these sessions do not include instruction in mindfulness, they are suitable for people with no previous knowledge of mindfulness as well as those who have been practising for many years.

'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.

An exhibition of posters and objects celebrating the people who took part in the VOICES project.The Voices of Individuals: Collectively Exploring Self-determination (VOICES) project aimed to change the law in relation to the right to legal capacity for people with disabilities. The project was based at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, NUI Galway under Dr. Eilionóir Flynn. The right to legal capacity in its most basic form is the right to make decisions which have legal consequences and to have those decisions respected by the law. This project took an innovative approach to legal capacity law reform by publishing the stories of those with lived experience of disability and pairing them with researchers, practitioners, front line workers in disability services and activists to develop grounded ideas for legal reform. The VOICES project placed participants from eleven countries and five different continents in pairs. Each of the pairs worked together to co-author a chapter of an edited collection entitled, ‘Global Perspectives on Legal Capacity Reform: Our Voices, Our Stories,’ which was published by Routledge in 2018. The exhibition will feature a poster and object celebrating each of the chapters in the edited collection,  their unique content and diverse experiences.

Fintan O’Toole is probably Ireland’s best-known journalist, with many books to his name and a widely read column in The Irish Times.

For this talk, he will discuss his new book, Heroic Failure: Brexit and the Politics of Pain, a ruthless dissection of the psychology and politics of Brexit.

The book explores how trivial journalistic lies became far from trivial national obsessions; how the pose of camp indifference to truth and historical fact has come to define the style of an entire political elite; the redefinition of a country that once had colonies as an oppressed nation requiring liberation; the strange gastronomic and political significance of  prawn-flavoured crisps, and their role in the rise of Boris Johnson; the dreams of revolutionary deregulation and privatisation that drive Arron Banks, Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg; and the silent rise of English nationalism, the force that dare not speak its name. 

It also looks at the fatal attraction of heroic failure, once a self-deprecating cult in a hugely successful empire that could well afford the occasional disaster: the Charge of the Light Brigade, Franklin lost in the Arctic, Captain Scott so near yet so far from the South Pole.

Fintan will be introduced by Catriona Crowe, Curator of Galway International Arts Festival's First Thoughts Talks discussion series.

Read some of Fintan's recent work in The Guardian and The Irish Times.
