Peopling Europe: How data make a people (ARITHMUS)

Start date: May 1, 2014, End date: Apr 30, 2019,

Who are the people of Europe? This question is facing statisticians as they grapple with standardising national census methods so that their numbers can be assembled into a European population. Yet, by so doing—intentionally or otherwise—they also contribute to the making of a European people. This, at least, is the central thesis of ARITHMUS. While typically framed as a methodological or statisti ...

Focusing on neoliberalism's emergent feminist discourse in the UK and the US, I aim to provide a multi-dimensional theorization of this phenomenon. Two central questions inform this project: 1) Why does neoliberalism need feminism at this particular historical juncture in order to reinforce its hegemony? and 2) How and in what ways do certain themes of feminism lend themselves to the neoliberal pr ...

Cultural background, education, religion and language are just some of the variables characterizing the modern appearance of a business. These different "colors" lead us to the definition of the "plural" and heterogeneous enterprise, increasing the importance of an “aware” management of the human resources. This phase of change shows up strongly in the Creative Industries economic segment, whereas ...

In Computational Creativity research, we study how to engineer software which can take on some of the creative responsibility in arts and science projects. There has been much progress towards the creative generation of artefacts of cultural value such as poems, music and paintings. Often, when produced by people, such artefacts embed a fictional idea invented by the creator. For instance, an arti ...

The capacity of combinational creativity---i.e., when novel ideas are produced through unfamiliar combinations of familiar ideas---is difficult to recreate computationally. In particular, it is a hard task for autonomous computational systems to tackle the combinatorial explosion of potential combinations, and to be capable of recognizing the value of newly created ideas (concepts, theories, solut ...

Organizing Disaster. Civil Protection and the Population (OD)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Jun 30, 2015,

The proposed project takes up the fundamental question of how the state orders society and applies it to an unexpected, but highly insightful case of disasters. It takes disasters as moments when the state attempts to reorder society and thus analyses the encounter between civil protection as state organisation and the population. What happens when civil protection encounters the population in cas ...

We perceive our body and peripersonal environment through multiple sensory modalities. The distance receptors (e.g., vision and audition), provide information about stimuli in both personal and extrapersonal space. The direct receptors (e.g., touch and proprioception) provide information about the body and external stimuli impinging on the body. Having multiple modalities bestows advantages by pro ...
