The School of Advanced Study The School of Advanced Study at the University of London is the only institution of its kind in the UK nationally funded to promote and facilitate research in the humanities and social sciences. The School brings together the specialised scholarship and resources of ten prestigious postgraduate research institutes to offer academic opportunities, facilities and stimulation across a wide range of subjects for the benefit of the national and international scholarly community. Member Institutes of the School: Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Institute of Classical Studies Institute of Commonwealth Studies Institute of English Studies Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies Institute of Historical Research Institute of Musical Research Institute of Philosophy Institute for the Study of the Americas Warburg Institute The School also hosts a cross-disciplinary centre. The Human Rights Consortium, founded in 2009, brings together the multidisciplinary expertise in human rights found in several Institutes of the School, as well as collaborating with individuals and organisations with an interest in the subject. The main aim of the Consortium is to facilitate, promote and disseminate academic and policy work on human rights by holding conferences and seminars, hosting visiting fellows, coordinating the publication of high quality work in the field, and establishing a network of human rights researchers, policy-makers and practitioners across the UK and internationally, with a view to collaborating on a range of activities.

Highlights: Fratricide and Fraternité

Fratricide and Fraternité: Understanding and Repairing Neighbourly Atrocity John E. Sawyer Seminar Series 2009–10 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation This prestigious seminar series brings together the ten Institutes of the School, with their formidable, international research networks, as well as a range of distinguished British and international scholars, to investigate neighbourly atrocities from an extensive range of thematic, disciplinary, methodological, geographic, and temporal perspectives. The series seeks to answer two overarching and inter-related questions: What turns neighbour against neighbour? How do neighbours live together again after atrocity? All events are free and open to the public. Advance registration is required.

Please email HRC@sas.ac.uk to register or if you would like to be added to the mailing list for updates on Fratricide and Fraternité events. www.sas.ac.uk/human_rights.html 25–26 February 2010 Beveridge Hall

Opening conference: Fratricide In this conference, we interrogate the seeming paradox of neighbourly violence and look at numerous examples, ranging from ancient Rome to contemporary Afghanistan. Panels will explore the transmission and re-interpretation of fratricidal myths across centuries and cultures; the contribution of neighbourly identity to violence; the logics of neighbourly violence; Jan Gross’ Neighbours and contemporary JewishPolish relations; and neighbourly violence in urban settings. There will also be a film showing of Refik Hodzic’s Statement 710339 examining the aftermath of the Srebrenica genocide. Speakers include: Mary Beard (tbc) (Cambridge), Jan Gross (Princeton), Linda Martin-Alcoff (Hunter College), Omar McDoom (LSE), Peter Orton (tbc) (Queen Mary, University of London), Slavoj Žižek (tbc) (Birkbeck) & Joanna Zylinska (Goldsmiths).

Highlights: Fratricide and Fraternité 26 March 2010 14.00–16.30 Room G22/26

Violence Seminar 1: Neighbourly denunciation Adam Ashforth (Michigan), Julian Goodare (Edinburgh) & Paul Moore (Birkbeck) The recent film The Lives of Others dramatised the use of denunciation in maintaining authoritarian rule in East Germany. Denunciation – what Kalyvas provocatively terms ‘the dark face of social capital’ – also plays a central role in violence among neighbours. Denunciation is rooted in everyday emotions and behaviours: gossip, envy, minor resentments, and personal grudges. How does such apparently banal activity ultimately lead to a situation where violence against whole categories of neighbours occurs? This seminar looks first at witchcraft accusations, both past and present. It then examines the two best-known sites of ‘accusatory practices’: Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic.

Calls for papers

Calls for papers The historical roots of social exclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean 24–25 June 2010 Institute for the Study of the Americas CFP deadline: 12 February 2010 Submissions are invited for papers examining the historical roots of social exclusion in the Americas, especially the United States and Canada, for an intensive two-day workshop. The workshop has a broad comparative and historical perspective, highlighting the nature of institutions inherited from pre-Columbian societies as well as British, French and Iberian colonial empires and the nature and social consequences of the struggle for independence in the colonies. Sponsored by the Economic History Society. Website: www.americas.sas.ac.uk/events/programmes/social_exclusion.html Contact: Ame Bergés (ame.berges@sas.ac.uk).

‘Our national character, our national purpose’: US presidents and democracy promotion 28 April 2010 Institute for the Study of the Americas CFP deadline: 15 February 2010 Keynote speaker: Tony Smith (Tufts University), author of A Pact With the Devil:Washington’s Bid for World Supremacy and the Betrayal of the American Promise. Over the last 100 years, US presidents have been increasingly influenced by the historical impulse to promote American political values abroad. This democracy promotion tradition goes back to Woodrow Wilson and beyond. In the words of Ronald Reagan, supporting the cause of freedom ‘goes to the heart of our national character and defines our national purpose’. After the Cold War, the democracy promotion impulse was renewed under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. The conference aims to deepen our understanding of how different presidents have interpreted the democracy promotion tradition and used it to further their own ends – or have tried to escape it. It will shed light on the consequences of following the tradition, both for the United States and targeted countries. Papers which situate Barack Obama within in this tradition are especially encouraged. Suitable papers will be considered for publication in a subsequent edited volume. Please see the website for more information. Website: www.americas.sas.ac.uk/events/programmes/Democracy_Promotion.html Contact: Timothy J. Lynch (timothy.lynch@sas.ac.uk).

Papers dealing with the following themes are encouraged but are not exclusive of others: • Case studies of female leadership in US foreign policy and IR generally (contemporary and historical, but post-cold war era especially encouraged) • Gender and IR theory • Gender and foreign policy analysis 62

From Duvalier to Preval: Haiti today and yesterday 21–22 June 2010 Institute for the Study of the Americas CFP deadline: 28 February 2010 Recent events in Haiti underscore more than ever the urgency of understanding the history, politics, development and future prospects of this Caribbean nation.This international conference will bring together academics, policymakers and NGOs to discuss key themes in the history and development of Haiti from Duvalier to Préval. In the light of the current catastrophe in Haiti we particularly encourage contributions on themes of the environment, state capacity and the role of external agencies, economic development and international engagement with Haiti, including relationships with its Caribbean and Latin American neighbours. We also encourage contributions on the broader themes of the conference. Keynote speaker: Anthony Maingot, Florida International University Supported by the David Nicholls Memorial Trust. Some financial support for those presenting papers may be made available.

Reassessing the seventies 7–9 July 2010 Institute of Historical Research – Centre for Contemporary British History CFP deadline: 1 March 2010 The 1970s marked a watershed in post-war British history with economic crises and profound political and social discord precipitating major social, cultural, political and economic changes with enduring consequences. Three decades after the ‘winter of discontent’ and the election of Margaret Thatcher, and with the papers now fully open, this major interdisciplinary conference will reassess developments in this crucial decade, placing them in the context of postwar British history as a whole. The conference will include keynote addresses from notable academics and contemporary figures. Proposals are invited for panels and for individual papers addressing themes related to Britain in the 1970s in a wide range of fields of enquiry across political, economic, social and cultural history. In addition to proposals from contemporary historians, we encourage submissions from colleagues in a wide range of related fields in the social sciences. Please send abstracts of 150–250 words and a one-page CV to: Lawrence Black (lawrence.black@durham. ac.uk), Hugh Pemberton (h.pemberton@bristol.ac.uk) and Virginia Preston (virginia.preston@sas.ac.uk).

Calls for papers Aesthetics Institute of Philosophy CFP deadline: 5 March 2010 Proposals are sought from UK philosophy departments to organise a one or two day philosophy conference in the area of Aesthetics to be held in 2010–11. The conference will be financially supported by the Institute, who will also provide the venue. Proposals – of no more that three pages – should contain: • a clear rationale for the theme or topic chosen; • a list of possible speakers; • a draft budget, including likely accommodation needs; • an indication of whether any other sources of funding will be sought. The Institute will work in partnership with the lead conference organiser of the successful bid to help facilitate, advertise and run the event. Funding will be provided to cover expenditure on the following items: • • • •

speaker travel for second class rail or economy air fare (US fares not included); refreshments on the day and lunch for the speakers; overnight accommodation for speakers where necessary; a conference dinner for speakers and chairs.

Proposals should be sent to philosophy@sas.ac.uk by 5 March 2010. These will be assessed by the Management Committee and a decision will be announced by 31 March 2010. The level of funding for the successful bid will be set by the Institute of Philosophy following consultations between the conference organiser, the Director of the Institute and the Management Committee.

Regulating and deregulating lawyers in the 21st century 3–4 June 2010 Institute of Advanced Legal Studies CFP deadline: 30 March 2010 The University of London’s Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS), the University of Westminster School of Law, and the Cleveland State University College of Law are holding a conference on ‘Regulating and deregulating lawyers in the 21st century’ on 3–4 June 2010 at the IALS. This announcement invites paper submissions from individuals interested in contributing to this debate. It is anticipated that papers and presentations will be published subsequent to the meeting. Contextual critiques of the current situation are welcome, with a primary focus on trends impacting legal professions in the US and UK, and strategies for improved regulatory approaches (including deregulation) in the US, UK and Canada. The aim is concrete discussions of strategies for effective regulation and deregulation in the numerous and distinct economic and client-varied modes of law practice. Issues include the failure of self-regulation, controlling the numbers of lawyers, revising rules on the unauthorised practice of law, consumer protections aimed at creating incentives for lawyers to provide improved service to their clients through the potential for liability, and removal of inappropriate entry barriers. The structural transformation of legal practice in the corporate hemisphere and elsewhere is more advanced in the UK than in the US. This includes multidisciplinary law practice and a push to list law firms on the stock exchange as some law firms in Australia started a few years ago. The Smedley Report from the UK’s Law Society considers the problems of regulating such practices when there are already serious regulatory failures in the other areas that will be combined into multidisciplinary practices. Organised in collaboration with Cleveland State University College of Law and University of Westminster School of Law.
