MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory
7th – 9th September 2016
Conveners: Michael Bennett (University of York) & Jonathan Benson (University of Manchester)
This workshop aims to stimulate a productive dialogue between those working on epistemic arguments for and against democracy and the market. We welcome papers focused exclusively on epistemic democracy, papers focused exclusively on epistemic arguments for markets, and papers which bring the two debates together.
Alongside the tradition of epistemic democracy there is an opposing tradition, including Hayekian economics, of epistemic arguments for markets. Both traditions reject idealised epistemic assumptions such as normative certainty and agreement (common in ideal theorising about justice) and perfect information (common in neoclassical economics). Instead, epistemic perspectives take the reality of ignorance and uncertainty as the starting point for institutional design, and place the creation, communication and use of knowledge at the centre of their analysis.
Global Studies Association Annual Conference 2016
Centre for Global Justice, St Mary’s University College Belfast
29 June 2016 – 1 July 2016
Confirmed keynote speakers:
Professor Jef Huysmans (Queen Mary, University of London)
Professor Marysia Zalewski (Cardiff University)
‘Global (In-)Securities’ provides a platform to explore and discuss questions relating to the practices, technologies and experiences of securities and insecurities in a globalised world. In recognition of the complexities that pertain to the question of security and insecurity, relating to issues such as war and conflict, migration and the global economy, we want to probe multi- and interdisciplinary perspectives on global (in-)securities. While cognisant of the contribution from the field of security studies, we welcome paper and panel proposals from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and methodological perspectives.

Manchester Workshops in Political Theory, 7-9 September 2016
This workshop aims to take stock of the political philosophical and theoretical debate on workfare, to critically explore the normative underpinning of workfare and those of concrete workfare policies. Workfare will be discussed from various perspectives such as marxism, liberalism or communitarism and in connection to related issues such as the value of work and labor, justice within the welfare system, the wrongs of poverty and exploitation, or the place of the market in the distribution of benefits and burdens.
