The seminar addresses dilemmas that arise between pursuing an academic career and maintaining other aspects of a fulfilling life. It is aimed at colleagues in the PhD / PostDoc phase, especially in the disciplines of law, philosophy and political science, both men and women. Many are under pressure to publish and take on administrative tasks and teaching, - often in an unfamiliar culture, and sometimes also with obligations of care.

The seminar is organised by PluriCourts as part of its 'Publish and Flourish' mentoring programme; the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights; and the Equality and Diversity Committee at the Faculty of Law.

Convenors Andreas Føllesdal and Inga Bostad.

Time and place: May 26, 2016 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM, Professorboligen, Stallen, Karl Johans gate 47

In June 2015, the 25th Annual Dignity Conference took place in Kigali, Rwanda, see www.humiliationstudies.org/whoweare/annualmeeting/25.php. In March, however, it seemed that the conference could not happen.

The reason was that Evelin Lindner's doctoral dissertation, titled The Psychology of Humiliation: Somalia, Rwanda / Burundi, and Hitler's Germany (UiO, 2000), seemingly, was misinterpreted as condoning genocide as an understandable and thus legitimate outcome of humiliation.

This guest lecture will address the development, use, and expansion of "terrorist watchlists" in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, highlighting legal issues relating to rule of law, and freedom of movement (or "the right to travel"), but also to the pernicious effect watchlisting has on conceptions of citizenship.

Recent legislation in these countries increases state power to control travel and denaturalize citizens (to the point of statelessness).
