Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance
The Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) is a University designated Centre of Research Excellence
CCIG's Publics Research Programme (Directed by Prof. John Clarke) and the Creating Publics project (led by Dr. Nick Mahony with Dr. Hilde Stephansen) will be welcoming a group of colleagues from McGill University’s Institute for the Publics Life of Arts and Ideas (IPLAI) who will be visiting the Open University 3-5 June 2013.
Mitra Pariyar (Doctoral researcher at Macquarie University, Sydney) will be speaking about his fieldwork with Nepali migrants in Aldershot, a small town in Hampshire which has long served as the HQ of the British Army.
This event relates to two projects run by CRESC and CCIG at the Open University.
This event is part of the CCIG lunch seminar series.
The session will explore “research impact” generally (how to write an impact case for funding, differences between having impact and making an impact etc).
‘Being in the zone’ is a term often used to describe the feeling of living ‘in the moment’, or existing in a state of intense concentration or exceptional clarity. To be in the zone is to achieve excellence or perfection beyond the ordinary. But what actually is this ‘zone’? And what are its range of effects?
Forums are scheduled in advance for each academic year, and are intended to feature a wide selection of events held throughout the day, including seminars, colloquia, keynotes, workshops, and conversational groups.
This symposium will consider children’s family lives and ‘troubles’ through diverse lenses, across varied disciplines, cultural contexts, and practice settings, addressing such themes as:
We are living on the line. Ours is a time of intensified disruption of the familiar. Rights depletions, loss of public and community life, identity crises, pervasive insecurities, and lack of imaginative governance seem to rule the day.
This event is part of the project 'Affectivity and Liminality' led by Prof Paul Stenner in collaboration with Megan Clinch, Johanna Motzkau and Monica Greco (Goldsmiths College), and funded through the European Science Foundation (ESF) Exploratory Workshop scheme.
