"Where the Wild Things Are" Talk by Dr Huw Griffiths, British Antarctic Survey

The study of Antarctic biodiversity and biogeography dates back centuries to the earliest expeditions. The use of new technologies and data have changed our understanding of the distribution patterns of sea floor animals in the Southern Ocean. The Antarctic may appear to be a desert above the surface but below the waves is a rich, varied and complex community of animals and as many as half of these species still await discovery and description. The distribution of these animals has been determined by the dramatic geological, oceanographic and climate changes that have affected the region in the past.

Conflict, Rights and Security by Dr Michael Kearney, Sussex Law School

Title: 'Anarchism and International Law'

Abstract: The presentation will aim to consider in general terms, how the notion of anarchy is utilised in the language and imagination of international law. The goal is to ask whether and how an anarchist theory might be useful in reviewing critical issues such as environment, exploitation, and violence, which to a large extent remain outside the purview of international law. The term anarchy is regularly found in international legal jurisprudence and scholarship, and is doubly significant in that it provides the very basis of the assumption as to what international law is supposed to be defined in opposition to, and to what it seeks to regulate.  That is – anarchy is used to describe the general chaos that would exist were all pretences to an international order premised on some rule of law abandoned – yet in the same breath is used to denote the actually existing international order where international law harmonises relations between equals lacking an overall authority: thus international law, by seeking to regulate the behaviour of states in an anarchical system, thereby prevents a descent into anarchy.
 
By reference to basic anarchist principles and aims (liberty and self-determination), the paper will attempt to unravel the imagination of international law, by demonstrating how even its ‘radical’ adherents and critics depart from the premise that liberty and anarchy are unthinkably impossible. Eleanor Roosevelt illustrated the limits to the vision of international law in stating that: ‘Just as the concept of individual human liberty carried to its logical extreme would mean anarchy, so the principle of self-determination given unrestricted application could result in chaos.’ I will propose that the ‘realistic utopia’ (Schabas) within which contemporary liberal commentators on international law box their legal and political imagination and scholarship (Ignatieff: ‘The best human rights activists can ever hope for is to keep democratic regimes honest and to shame undemocratic ones into being less brutal’), is unsustainable in a world facing imminent crisis and chaos from environmental and capitalist exploitation, and that international law scholarship and activism might be well served by the development of a form of anarchist critique and challenge.

All are welcome.

There will be tea/coffee and biscuits on offer after the Meeting for Worship - you are welcome to attend either or both, if you are interested in finding out more about Irish Quakers. A Quaker Style Meeting for Worship is based on a group of people sitting in silent waiting on God. Anyone at the meeting is free to contribute in word or song if they feel moved to do so in the Spirit of the meeting. There are no special prayers and no structure to meeting. The meeting usually ends with a hand- shake. All who wish to sit in silence and peace in the presence of God are welcome - you don’t have to be a Quaker, you don't have to profess to any belief at all – walk in, sit down – and then we try to be still.

Herosongs: Where History and Song Meets

Herosongs: Where History and Song Meets started last Sunday in conjunction with AthenaMedia in Dublin and funding from the BAI, 7pm on RTÉ Radio 1 and runs for the next 8 weeks.

This eight part series is an Athena Media production for RTÉ Radio 1 and is presented by singer and academic Thérèse McIntyre (PhD student Centre for Irish Studies), who traces the journey of ballads from the 16th century to today and explores how they shape or distort our understanding of history, real events, and real people like Henry Joy McCracken in 1798 or Jim Larkin in 1913. In the series we hear from historians including Diarmaid Ferriter, Kevin Whelan, Eunan O’Halpin, Mike Cronin, and Lillis O’Laoire, retired musicologist and song collector John Moulden and traditional music experts Nicholas Carolan and Grace Toland from the Irish Traditional Music Archive. Thérèse is joined by singers Iarla Ó Lionáird, Nóirín Ní Riain, Frances Black, Niamh Parsons and composer Eric Bogle who share their own relationship with history, song, and these sung heroes.

 
It will be available on podcast and there will be various information available as the series broadcasts but the event may be followed on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/489356294467740/. Promos are also on the Audioboo page: http://audioboo.fm/athenamediaie and the press release with billings can be viewed here: http://pciserver.com/herosongs/HS_Pressrelease_LE_010713.pdf
