CKI Conversations with Community

Cheryl Siemers is currently a Colston Visiting Fellow at the University of Bristol, hosted by the English department to work with the B.A. in English Literature and Community Engagement and by the Department of Social Sciences and Law to engage with the Productive Margins program. Dr. Siemers is visiting from the University of Alaska Anchorage and Kenai Peninsula College. On Monday, March 23, she'll hold a workshop to discuss her three areas of research: exploring ways in which community or local knowledge is valued, shared, and incorporated in both traditional classroom settings and in community-engaged projects; investigating how indigenous ways of knowing might be integrated in community-based learning; and examining how these engaged projects might increase persistence for underrepresented students in higher education. She looks forward to discussing the crossover between her work and the engagement happening in NUI Galway.

Concerning Violence Screening

Narrated by Lauryn Hill, Concerning Violence is both an archive-driven documentary covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation in the Third World, as well as an exploration into the mechanisms of decolonization through text from Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth. Fanon’s landmark book, written over 50 years ago, is still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neo-colonialism happening today, as well as the violence and reactions against it. “A poetic, though-provoking visual essay” Dan Schindel.

Babel Public Lecture

Babel Public Lecture by Dr Jennifer Wood.


Entitled: Civilisation versus Barbarism: The (Re)branding of the Falklands/Malvinas.


An exploration of how the conflicted nation-space of the Falklands / Malvinas has been imagined in the national consciousness of both Britain and Argentina. Starting from the recent Top Gear furore, we will explore how the Islands have become mythologised in Argentina and also how they have been framed to take on a role (post 1982) that they never had in the British national imaginary.

6th Annual Environment, Society & Development Symposium



Geography's Geopolitics and Justice Cluster's 6th Annual Symposium on Environment, Society and Development takes place March 30-31 this year. The two-day symposium, supported by the Whitaker Institute and part of its Conflict, Humanitarianism and Security Cluster annual events, engages the key theme of 'precarious geographies' and the challenge of rendering visible and insisting upon 'insecure lives' whose political statuses have been marginalised in globalized networks of conflict, migration, detention and asylum.

 

The symposium features a joint plenary from Prof. Jennifer Hyndman (York University, Canada) and Prof. Alison Mountz (Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada) and paper presentations from Prof. Gerry Kearns (NUI Maynooth), Dr Diana O’Dwyer (Dublin City University) and Dr Karen Till (NUI Maynooth). The symposium also features presentations from Geopolitics and Justice PhD candidates and Masters students on the MA in Environment, Society and Development. There is no fee to attend, and the symposium programme can be found here:
