A seminar-style session on the ethics of strikes / ethics of industrial disputes.
This could include material about the ways in which (ahem!) communications from employers might be assessed for their ethical credentials, along dimensions such as honesty/deception, manipulativeness / respect, and so forth. But there will be a bunch of other stuff (e.g. why should strikes be a "last resort", as everyone seems to agree they are, on what basis they are legitimate (assuming they are), the ethical obligations of being a beneficiary of industrial action, or membership of a union, obligations of solidarity, etc. etc..).

Designing a really sustainable city (proposals for papers/sessions invited: please contact Paul!)
University staff will exploring the big transformations needed across different aspects of city life to make them sustainable in a meaningful and substantial way. From transport and energy to housing and the economy, how can cities be redesigned in ways that shift away from the business as usual model of conventional economic growth, climate breakdown, austerity and rising social inequality; and towards models that ensure prosperity for all, social equality and ecological regeneration? This interactive day long workshop is for students and non students alike from any and all disciplines – both the sciences and social sciences, engineering and medicine. The bigger the range of interests and knowledge the better. (Featuring: Asa Roast, 'Urban Futures: Imaginaries of the Future of the City'.)

What would it mean for museums to be democratic? (Meet in the Leeds Arena within Leeds City Museum.)
Contributors to both academic and practice debates have often called for museums to be more democratic – but what does that mean? We will explore the various meanings of ‘democratic’: considering the different political nuances opened up in the quest for a democratic museum from simply being open and accessible, to taking an activist position to deploying participatory and collaborative decision-making.
