How do activists in exile mobilize citizens back home, and how do regimes respond when they do? In an on-going book project titled Exiles: How Activist Abroad Influence Politics Back Home, Professor Elizabeth Nugent investigates politics in exile, whether and how activists persist in activism once they are forcibly dislocated from their homeland, by drawing on insights from research on the biographical effects of activism, psycho-behavioral effects of trauma and emotion, and forced migration.
Drawn from Imperial Intimacies, A Tale of Two Islands, the lecture will discuss how Professor Hazel Carby employed the insights of Stuart Hall into the nature of identities “as stories we tell ourselves,” and systems of recognition that we adopt, to trace the role of visual culture in creation of British imperial subjects and subjectivity.
Dr. Bahar will present a comprehensive study on the dynamics of knowledge production and diffusion linked to global mobile inventors (GMIs). Together with his co-authors, Dr Bahar finds that GMIs are essential team members of the first few patents in technology classes new to the country of residence as compared to patents filed at later stages. They interpret these results as tangible evidence of GMIs facilitating the technology-specific diffusion of knowledge across nations.
Scholars, writers, and policymakers from Shakespeare to Obama have noted linkages between the physical environment and human behavior toward one another. Professor Burke synthesizes a growing cottage industry of research that seeks to quantitatively measure how changes in climate can affect various types of human conflict. He re-analyzes dozens of individual studies using a common empirical framework and uses Bayesian techniques to study whether – and why – effect sizes differ across settings.
