18:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Voltaire and contemporary France Website | More Information
In the eighteenth century Voltaire waged a campaign against religious intolerance, and fought for victims who had suffered persecution by the Catholic Church. More broadly, he and other French philosophers of the Enlightenment sought to combat religious superstition and to encourage members of different faiths to treat one another with compassion.

When, in modern France, the secular state has come into conflict with religion, Voltaire's example has often been cited. This talk will look at Voltaire’s legacy in France, and how his ideas are viewed in the wake of increasing terrorist activity.

Join Voltaire scholar Dr Paul Gibbard for this thought-provoking and pertinent presentation.

9:00 - CONFERENCE - Conference : Visualising Human Rights Conference Website | More Information
This event explores the powerful role of photography in shaping our understanding of human rights. Historically images have been a crucial way of disseminating ideas, creating sense of proximity between peoples across the globe, and notions of a shared humanity.

13:00 - SEMINAR - Remembering the Reformation in Early Modern England : A CHE Seminar with Peter Sherlock Website | More Information
The idea of the Reformation as an event had emerged in historical scholarship by the end of the seventeenth century. New research led by Alexandra Walsham and Brian Cummings is revealing how the reformers were commemorated in a range of ritual and material forms. Although monuments were themselves transformed by reformed doctrine and ritual, this paper seeks to answer the question, did they represent the Reformation itself?

Professor Peter Sherlock is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Divinity in Melbourne, Australia and author of Monuments and Memory in Early Modern England (Ashgate, 2008) and several book chapters and journal articles on memory and commemoration in early modern Europe.

This seminar is hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe, 1100-1800).

Special Psychology Colloquium

Tuesday 6th December 4:00-5:00pm in Bayliss MCS G.33, followed by post-talk drinks in the Psychology Courtyard.

Presenter: Prof Dorothy Bishop (Oxford)

Title: What is the reproducibility crisis and what can we do about it?

Abstract:

Concerns about reproducibility of research findings have been growing rapidly over the past few years, accelerated by the publication in 2015 of a paper in Science entitled “Estimating the reproducibility of psychological science”. In this talk I will discuss the evidence for poor reproducibility, and consider why this is only now being discussed when the underlying causes have been talked about for many years. I will conclude that the problem is not limited to psychology, but that to put psychology back on course as a robust science we will need to see changes not only in statistical and experimental practices, but also in the incentive structures created by funders, journals and institutions.
