LATEST HAPPENINGS AT BSATHEORY

BSA President, Professor John Holmwood announces a one-day seminar/ workshop on the challenge of Big Data, organised in collaboration with Dr Emma Uprichard, Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, University of Warwick and Dr Abby Day, Department of Sociology, Goldsmiths.

There is a lot more we do at the campus which is worth discussing. Do  not forget to attend the meeting on 15th of each month.

SEMINAR THEMES

Within these different areas our speakers will be considering: key current debates/ controversies what holds realism back/ current problems/ sticking points current trends in realist thought. We would like our discussions to inform a broad scoping exercise of the current issues of realist thought and which may help to inform future events that we will hold, developing an agenda for future sessions. The guest speaker at our next session is Thomas Parkinson, learning development manager at Discovery UK, who will be speaking about the rise in online courses in the age of the Internet.

OUR EVENTS

Space in which the connections between experiences of migration and citizenship in the contemporary period can be discussed within the context of postcolonial and decolonial critiques of the narrative of modernity. Ideas of ‘race’ are often invoked in popular discussions of the outcomes of migration, and debates around the exclusivity of citizenship.

We organize the events on regular basis so that the communication and the understanding between the school and parents can be strong.

Call For Papers

In recent years there has been an explosion of interest around the history of the transatlantic slave trade fuelled largely by public, academic and institutional activities and projects undertaken for the national marking of 2007 as the Bicentenary of the Abolition Act in Britain.

Alongside this there has been a greatly heightened academic and scholarly consideration of the way Britain has remembered this history through museum exhibitions, memorialisation and cultural representations in media, film and literature.
