ETHICS IN ACADEMY
December 18, 2009

Helsinki School of Economics
MAIN BUILDING Runeberginkatu 14-16, Helsinki
LECTURE HALL PA-350

"Ethics in Academy" symposium is a platform for all members of Aalto University to discuss ethical issues related to various aspects of life in academy.

In recent years universities in Finland have become complex organizations involved in many kinds of activities besides academic research, higher education, and administration. Universities are encouraged to engage in commercial activities, either by commercializing research results or by entering educational markets. The society as a whole expects universities to produce research that is relevant with respect to many social ends. While administration has been under increased pressure to develop quality assessment systems, academics have witnessed the emergence of an international movement that is critical of managerialism in universities.

These developments give rise to many perplexing questions about the ethics of academic work. "Ethics in Academy" symposium aims to shed light on ethical questions beginning from the daily ethical problems of the administrator to the goals of the University in supporting personal growth and cultivating democratic citizenship.

Gender, Nature and Culture
Call for papers

The 4th Christina Conference on Gender Studies - Gender, Nature and Culture
20-22 May 2010, University of Helsinki, Finland

The 4th Christina conference explores the complex connections among gender, nature and culture. Recent research has increasingly viewed nature and culture as inherently entangled and inseparable, suggesting that nature is often understood through discourses of gender and, conversely, that gender is made sense of through historically contingent assumptions about nature. Building on this growing body of scholarship, the conference asks how this mutual intertwining of nature, culture and gender has been theorized, represented and experienced in the past as well as the present. The conference aims to be a meeting point for researchers from different disciplines. The conference is organized by the research project "Representing and Sensing Nature, Landscape and Gender" (Academy of Finland) and Gender Studies, University of Helsinki.

The conference has three thematic foci:
* We explore how advances in genomics, evolutionary biology and other fields of science have refashioned cultural discourses of gender, and how cultural representations of gender and nature have changed the ways in which scientific projects are formulated or popularized.
* We ask how works of art (in visual arts, literature, film,etc.)have imagined and rethought gendered assumptions implicit in the conceptual distinction between nature and culture that has been so prominent in Western culture.
* We focus on everyday experiences and the ways in which daily practices reinforce or challenge cultural assumptions about the connection between gender and nature.

While addressing these issues, we also explore how assumptions about gender, nature and culture take shape through discourses of sexuality, ethnicity and other intersecting categories of difference.

Keynote speakers
Rosi Braidotti, Utrecht University, The Netherlands Sarah Franklin, London School of Economics, UK Marja-Liisa Honkasalo, Linköping University, Sweden Priscilla Wald, Duke University, USA

The Organizing Committee is pleased to invite abstracts for individual 20-minute presentations. Research groups can also suggest sessions of several papers. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Abstracts should be submitted using the online submission form available on the conference website. The deadline for submissions is 15 December 2009.

Individuaatio varhaismodernissa metafysiikassa
seminaari
ke 9.12.2009
Historiatieteen ja filosofian laitos, Tampereen yliopisto
Pinni B 0039

Suomen Akatemian tutkijatohtoriprojektini järjestää yhden päivän kotimaisen seminaarin individuaatiosta 1500-1700-lukujen filosofiassa. Individuaatio on metafysiikan klassinen ja edelleen ajankohtainen kysymys. Se tarkoittaa olioiden erottamista toisistaan yksilöinä (jonain ajanhetkenä eli synkronisesti tai jollakin aikavälillä eli diakronisesti). Individuaation ongelma liittyy siis läheisesti identiteettiin, jonka eräs erityisongelma on persoonan identiteetti. Puhujina on suomalaisia alan kärkinimiä.

Ohjelma
11.00-11.15    Jani Hakkarainen: avaus
11.15-12.00    Simo Knuuttila (Helsinki): Suárezin kausaliteettikäsitys
12.00-12.45    Olli Koistinen (Turku): Descartes ja Spinoza substanssien individuaatiosta
12.45-13.45    lounastauko
13.45-14.30    Valtteri Viljanen (Turku): Spinoza kappaleiden individuaatiosta
14.30-15.15    Arto Repo (Turku): Leibniz ja aggregaatit
15.15-16.00    Juhana Lemetti (Helsinki): Hobbes kappaleiden individuaatiosta
16.00-16.30    kahvitauko
16.30-17.15    Ville Paukkonen (Helsinki): Berkeley kappaleiden individuaatiosta
17.15-18.00    Jani Hakkarainen (Tampere): Hume kappaleiden individuaatiosta

Françoise Dastur, professeur honoraire de philosophie rattachée aux Archives
Husserl de Paris (ENS Ulm) et professeur émérite de l’université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis, est probablement le représentant le plus connu de la phénoménologie française contemporaine. Profondément inspiré par Maurice Merleau-Ponty, elle a aussi interprété Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer, Hölderlin... Le centre thématique de son travail concerne l’ontologie du temps, la corporéité et la finitude, la philosophie de langage et l’anthropologie. Elle a aussi d’une façon décisive contribué au dialogue entre la psychiatrie et la philosophie.

Arbogast Schmitt ist Professor für Gräzistik in Marburg und gehört zu den weltweit herausragenden Vertretern der klassischen Philologie. Er verbindet
seine philologische Kompetenz mit einem ausgeprägten Sinn für philosophische
Fragen. Neben seinen Arbeiten über das homerische Epos, die attische Tragödie, die Literaturtheorie und die Poetik der Antike, hat er das Verhältnis der platonischen und aristotelischen Erkenntnistheorie zur Epistemologie der
Neuzeit untersucht und die Folgen für das Verständnis von Ästhetik, Ethik und Politik dargelegt.

Samuel Weber is the Avalon Professor of Humanities at Northwestern University (Evanston) and one of the leading American thinkers across the disciplines of literary theory, philosophy and psychoanalysis. He also holds the Paul de Man Chair of philosophy and literature at the European Graduate School in Switzerland and has been Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Director of its Paris Program in Critical Theory. Weber is also known for his work in the dramatic arts and has been working for many German opera houses and theaters.
