We're publishing an original essay on the Daily Sceptic by Mike Hearn about the problem of 'pro-social bias' in online opinion polls, meaning the support for the Covid restrictions in opinion polls is probably overstated.

Race and State in contemporary Ireland

As Ireland’s economic crisis deepens, media coverage has been characterised by a deafening silence on the impact of this crisis on migrants. Social movements have also been largely guilty of ignoring the importance of migration and racism to contemporary forms of exploitation and oppression. And yet it is increasingly clear that some of the most radical forms of exclusion and exploitation are deeply intertwined with questions of race and migration.

In this seminar Ronit Lentin brings together the theoretical insights of Foucault, Agamben and Goldberg to explore the deepening relation between race, migration, the state and power in contemporary Ireland. Ronit is head of the sociology department at Trinity College Dublin and coordinates the Masters in Ethnic and Racial Studies there. Ronit has been to the forefront of researching and writing about the relationship between racism and the state in Ireland and has co-edited Racism and Anti-Racism in Ireland and co-authored After Optimism: Ireland, Racism and Globalisation.

'Better Questions' seminar series in Seomra Spraoi

Better Questions is an initiative that has emerged out of conversations between people engaged in either social movement practices in Dublin and/or thought on radical social change. Our point of convergence is our recognition that we must develop better questions about the world around us in order to change it. This seminar series draws on a wide variety of critical theoretical perspectives to explore contemporary forms of power and possibilities for resistance.

The talks will take place fortnightly in Seomra Spraoi from 6.30pm (for directions see www.seomraspraoi.org). The Peoples Kitchen will serve food in Seomra Spraoi from 8pm

The audio of the questions and answers session that followed the presentation will be added as a comment to this piece in the next day or so.
