Mike Hulme is a Professor of Human Geography and head of the Department of Geography at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on representations of climate change in history, culture, and media, and the ways in which climate change is deployed in public and political discourse. Mike's 2009 book, Why We Disagree About Climate Change, was chosen as one of The Economist's books of the year, and looks at how the idea of climate change has taken such a dominant position in modern politics. His most-recent book, Climate Change Isn't Everything: Liberating Climate Politics from Alarmism, addresses what he calls "climatism" — climate reductionism as ideology. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Mike about wildfires, "global warming," climate change activism, policy, hysteria, and more.

The events of the past 6 weeks have exposed the sheer double standards that apply to the implementation of international law. The so-called liberal international order has been found to be nothing short of hypocritical. Gaza has exposed not only this duplicity but also the very ideas that undergird such a system. Today, we explore these ideas. Many surmise that the West has taken a wrong turn, and if only they return back to their original noble enlightenment values. Yet Gaza unveils a more unsettling truth. That the values of secular liberalism have always remained connected to European chauvinism. Their unbridled support for a settler colonial project and the ease with which they absorb genocide reveals the unsettling nature of liberalism. This is the argument of my guest today, Hasan Spiker. Hasan Spiker is a philosopher and comparative scholar of Islamic, Greek, and modern thought he studied at the University of Cambridge, where he received his MPhil in philosophy and where is carrying out his doctoral research. He also studied the Islamic sciences. His new book, Hierarchy and Freedom: An Examination of Some Classical Metaphysical and Post-Enlightenment Accounts of Human Autonomy, was released this year.Join our Patreon to get access to exclusive monthly Zoom calls: https://www.patreon.com/TheThinkingMuslimYou can also support The Thinking Muslim through a one-time donation: https://www.thinkingmuslim.com/DonateSign up to Muhammad Jalal's newsletter: https://jalalayn.substack.com Hosted on Acast.

On this episode of Transforming Trauma, Emily is honored to welcome psychiatrist, researcher, teacher, and author Dr. Judith Herman for a heartfelt discussion centering on the needs of victims of sexual trauma and society's role in individual and collective trauma healing. In her latest book, Truth And Repair: How Trauma Survivors Envision Justice, Dr. Herman introduces us to a “fourth stage” of the recovery process in which trauma survivors are invited to envision their future. Dr. Herman's latest book comes 30 years after her seminal work, Trauma And Recovery, in which she introduced the then-radical idea that complex PTSD was a stand-alone diagnosis that differs significantly from PTSD. Her pioneering work led to our current understanding that C-PTSD requires a new framework for diagnosis and effective treatment. About Judith Herman: Judith Lewis Herman, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry (part time) at Harvard Medical School. For thirty years, until she retired, she was Director of Training at the Victims of Violence Program at The Cambridge Hospital, Cambridge, MA. Dr. Herman is the author of the award-winning books: Father-Daughter Incest (Harvard University Press, 1981) and Trauma and Recovery (Basic Books, 1992).

I am so excited to say that my guest on the GWA Podcast is the world-renowned Classics scholar and professor at the University of Cambridge, Caroline Vout! Today we are discussing all sorts of figures in Classics, from Venus to Hermaphroditus. Born in Durham, Vout studied for a BA at Newnham College Cambridge, completed her MA at the Courtauld, and PhD back in Cambridge, where she spent a very formative year as a Rome Scholar at the British School at Rome. Since 2006, she has been based in Cambridge where she is a Fellow at Christ's College. The author of seven formative books that have expanded my mind on the Ancient world, our thinking around gendered bodies, imperfect bodies, and the perception of women through these vessels, from Classical Art: A Life History from Antiquity to the Present to the more recently published “Exposed: The Greek and Roman Body”, Vout has been instrumental in pushing forwarding Classical research. Next year, she will curate a major exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum But the reason why we are speaking with Carrie Vout today is because of how her research challenges the ideal forms of the Greek and Roman body. Whereas a body cast in marble or bronze sitting atop a pedestal might be the template that we have – and one that European painters have so often perpetuated through idealised portrayals of men and women – Vout argues this is a lie, and that ancient bodies were in fact anxious, ailing, imperfect, diverse, and in turn, much more like us than we might at first glean. CARRIE'S BOOKS: https://www.waterstones.com/book/exposed/caroline-vout/9781788162906 https://www.waterstones.com/book/classical-art/caroline-vout/9780691177038 https://www.waterstones.com/book/sex-on-show/caroline-vout/9780714122786 -- THIS EPISODE IS GENEROUSLY SUPPORTED BY THE LEVETT COLLECTION: https://www.instagram.com/famm.mougins // https://www.merrellpublishers.com/9781858947037 ENJOY!!!

Jenny Chase went to work for the London-based startup New Energy Finance in 2005, straight out of university in Cambridge. She founded its solar analysis team and helped establish some of the first reliable indexes of prices in the solar supply chain, as well as some of the first serious industry models and projections. The solar power industry barely existed then. Now solar is the cheapest source of new power in most markets and the International Energy Agency expects it to dominate global electricity by 2050. Throughout that heady transition, Chase has run and grown the solar analysis team, even after the company was bought by Bloomberg and became Bloomberg NEF in 2009. It has become one of the most respected teams in the business and a widely cited arbiter of industry data.In 2019, Chase wrote a book summarizing what she learned over her years analyzing the industry. It is called Solar Power Finance Without the Jargon, but the title is somewhat misleading — it covers solar power finance but also solar power history, technology, and policy. It is leavened here and there with droll bits of biography or advice from Chase and contains an incredible amount of information in a highly compact and readable package, just over 200 pages. A heavily updated second edition was released this month. Also this month came Chase's yearly “opinions about solar” Twitter thread, which is highly anticipated among a certain kind of energy dork [waves].I figured it would be fun to have Chase on the pod to talk about the current state of the solar industry, whether anything but standard-issue solar PV is ever going to flourish, and what the world needs to help balance out increasing penetrations of solar.

How do we define intelligence? What is the point of creativity and intelligence if we are not creating good in the world? In this age of AI, what is the importance of a synthesizing mind?Howard Gardner, Research Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an author of over 30 books, translated into 32 languages, and several hundred articles, is best known for his theory of multiple intelligences, a critique of the notion that there exists but a single human intelligence that can be assessed by standard psychometric instruments. He has twice been selected by Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines as one of the 100 most influential public intellectuals in the world. In the last few years, Gardner has been studying the nature of human synthesizing, a topic introduced in his 2020 memoir, A Synthesizing Mind.For 28 years, with David Perkins, he was Co-Director of Harvard Project Zero, and in more recent years has served in a variety of leadership positions. Since the middle 1990s, Gardner has directed The Good Project, a group of initiatives, founded in collaboration with psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and William Damon. The project promotes excellence, engagement, and ethics in education, preparing students to become good workers and good citizens who contribute to the overall well-being of society. Through research-based concepts, frameworks, and resources, The Good Project seeks to help students reflect upon the ethical dilemmas that arise in everyday life and give them the tools to make thoughtful decisions."And what scholars my age do is we write about these things. We talk about these things, but we hope our students will carry it through. So I've been trying to organize a network on synthesizing, which now has people from several different countries involved. And my team on The Good Project is working with schools and dozens of countries. And the curriculum has been translated into Portuguese, Chinese, and it's about to be translated into Japanese. And that's how we hope these ideas will make a difference. Now, if you are a pessimist by nature, as I am. You're going to say, 'Well, what can a bunch of scholars in Cambridge, Massachusetts, possibly do that's going to change the way the world is?' And the answer is we can't do it ourselves. We have to find partners and like-minded people all over the world and do blogs and podcasts and write. And I don't do social media, but my colleagues do and try to come out with more positive ways of thinking about things. Because there's plenty of depressing news and examples in the world. And I like to say, I'm a pessimist by nature, but I try to live my life as an optimist.”www.howardgardner.comhttp://thegoodproject.orghttps://mitpress.mit.edu/9780262542838/a-synthesizing-mindwww.creativeprocess.infowww.oneplanetpodcast.orgIG www.instagram.com/creativeprocesspodcast

In his Dictionary of the English Language, first published in 1755, Samuel Johnson did not define the words Saxon, Angle, or Anglo-Saxon. But Noah Webster in his 1828 American Dictionary defines Anglo-Saxon as "adjective. Pertaining to the Saxons, who settled in England, or English Saxons." Something had happened in between the two, and not just the American Revolution, and Johnson's and Webster's different views of that event–but that probably did contribute to the difference. And when Webster published his definition, the term was already taking on new connotations. Indeed, the term Anglo-Saxon has a rich and complicated history, right to the present moment. And so does perception of the peoples to which it refers…or does it actually refer to them? With me to discuss the history of the definition and the ideology of the term is Rory Naismith, Professor of Early Medieval English History at the University of Cambridge, Fellow of Corpus Christi College.

In the shadows of ancient Rome, a constant battle brewed between power and humanity. While slave management may sound like a thing of the past, more than 27 million people still toil under oppressive conditions today, and millions more are tied to jobs due to debts or other obligations. Although there is no comparison between slavery and a contemporary office, there is plenty to learn from history to help us forge a more just and equitable future. This episode examines the stark contrast between ancient slavery and the modern workplace, navigating the complexities of leadership, empathy, and progress.Dr. Jerry Toner is the Director of Studies in Classics at the Churchill College at Cambridge and author of The Roman Guide to Slave Management. His literary works around Roman cultural history have been translated into 15 languages and garnered a global readership.In this episode, Dart and Jerry discuss:- How slaves were framed in ancient Rome- Capitalist slavery in the U.S. versus domestic slavery in Rome- The language around slavery- The economic factors leading to large slave populations- Good management practices- Matching a person to the right type of work- The perceived character of slaves- The line between respect and admiration when it comes to cruel management- And other topics…Dr. Jerry Toner is the Director of Studies in Classics, a Fellow, and an Affiliated Lecturer at the Churchill College at Cambridge. His scholarly investigations and writing look at Roman cultural history with a focus on history “from below.” Jerry's books have been translated into 15 languages; one of his best-sellers, The Roman Guide to Slave Management, has been called “an ingenious device" by The New Yorker. After completing his Ph.D. in Classics at Cambridge, Jerry spent 10 years as a fund manager in London, where he managed $15 billion in global bond, currency, and asset allocation funds before returning to the ancient world.

The world is constantly in flux, sometimes in ways that are scary or violent. This can sometimes cause us to reassess everything. But it when it comes to your investments, that may not be the best strategy. In this episode of Financial Clarity for Doctors, Corey and Rachelle chat about how to approach investing during times of geopolitical uncertainty. Reviewing your investments: Take a moment to review the reasons you are investing. Is it for retirement in 20 years? A home down payment in two years? With a period of time like two years, ideally, you are protecting your dollars from the risk associated with the stock market (whether there is some global turmoil or not). For your long-term money, if you don't need to sell out of those investments soon, we don't need to worry as much about what is happening in the short term. Put the current situation into perspective. On a global scale, terrifying, heartbreaking, surprising things are happening every day. Some of them affect us more than others, but the turmoil itself is not new. For the stock market, it has weathered a lot of storms over the decades. Keep in mind that for long-term investors, time is on your side. When Corey was born, the S&P 500 closed at 244. When Rachelle was born, the S&P 500 closed at 162 (she's older!). On 11/15/2023, the S&P 500 closed at 4,502.88. That's huge! Focus on what you can control, and don't let the rest affect your investments. All that being said, you can (and maybe should) care about what's going on in the world. Just don't necessarily make big investment decisions based on those events.

Mark-Anthony Falzon is a social anthropologist. He is a professor at the University of Malta and a life member of Clare Hall, Cambridge. His books include Cosmopolitan Connections (Oxford, 2005), Multi-Sited Ethnography (Ashgate, 2009), The Examined Life (2019), The University of Malta (2020) and Birds of Passage (Berghahn, 2020). His book examines the social and cultural infrastructure that sustains Sindhi business and its trade networks. It provides a rich historical context to the narrative by tracing the origin of Sindhi trade to the annexation of Sindh in 1843, when it was incorporated into an expanding global economy. The book also locates Sindhi business within the dynamics of the contemporary Indian diaspora and features several success stories both from India and outside. Furthermore, it emphasizes the commercial inventiveness, spatial mobility, and adaptability of Sindhis—-the qualities crucial to building successful cosmopolitan businesses. The book features an arresting introduction by best-selling author and commentator, Gurcharan Das.

Prof Steve Evans of the Sustainability and Conservation Research Hub at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge delves into the multifaceted approach of the Hub, which transcends traditional academic boundaries to address critical environmental challenges. At the heart of the Hub's philosophy is the concept of a 'living lab' — a dynamic space where students, academics, alumni and various stakeholders converge to brainstorm, innovate, and implement sustainable solutions. This approach fosters a culture of practical learning and real-world application. The hub emphasizes collaboration and shared purpose, inviting members from diverse disciplines to contribute their unique skills and perspectives towards a common goal of making the world a better place. The Hub also places significant emphasis on mentoring and interaction across generations and disciplines. This approach not only facilitates knowledge exchange but also nurtures a community where innovative ideas can flourish. Looking towards the future, Prof Evans envisions Wolfson College as the world's first regenerative college. This ambitious goal extends beyond sustainability; it's about actively repairing and rejuvenating the environment. The Hub aims to redefine the concept of regenerative practices in business and everyday life. Engagement with the broader business community is another cornerstone of the Hub's strategy. The Hub encourages partnerships with sustainability-focused start-ups and other enterprises, demonstrating its openness and accessibility. This outreach is crucial for expanding the Hub's impact and integrating practical business insights into its sustainability endeavours. Prof Evans' insights unveil a forward-thinking approach to tackling environmental challenges. By fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, encouraging innovative thinking, and aiming for regenerative solutions, the Hub is not just educating the next generation of leaders and thinkers but is actively shaping a more sustainable and conscious world.

Saluting Science's Silly Side, VirtuallyIn science, there are some traditions: Every October, the Nobel Prize committee announces the winners of that year's awards, which are presented in Sweden in December. And every September for the past 33 years, a different committee has awarded the Ig Nobel Prizes in Cambridge, Massachusetts. And every year, on the day after Thanksgiving, Science Friday plays highlights from the awards ceremony. The Ig Nobel awards are a salute to achievements that, in the words of the organizers, “make people laugh, then think.” They are presented by the editors of the science humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research to 10 lucky(?) winners for unusual achievements in science, medicine, and other fields. This year's ceremony was held virtually, with a webcast taking the place of the traditional raucous ceremony in Harvard's Sanders Theater. However, it still contained many elements of the in-person Igs, from flying paper airplanes to the participation of real Nobel Laureates in the ceremony. This year's awards included prizes for explaining why many scientists like to lick rocks, for re-animating dead spiders to use as mechanical gripping tools, and for using cadavers to explore whether there is an equal number of hairs in each of a person's two nostrils. SciFri producer Charles Bergquist joins Ira to discuss highlights from this year's ceremony.Stop Flushing Your Health Data Down The ToiletYou could be flushing important information about your health right down the toilet—quite literally. Pee and poop can tell you a lot about your health, so what if your waste…didn't go to waste? What if, instead, it could tell you more about your health? Like number one, it can catch a condition like diabetes early. Or number two, check out what's going on in your gut microbiome.That's the goal of the smart toilet—a device that gets all up in your business to tell you more about your health. Ira talks with the inventor of the PH Smart Toilet, Dr. Seung-min Park, instructor of urology at Stanford's School of Medicine in California, about how the toilet works, how it can be used to catch diseases early on, and the ethical implications of such a device.To stay updated on all things science, sign up for Science Friday's newsletters.

Feel Good From Within with Yvette Le Blowitz - #SPAITGIRL Podcast EP.208 - The Balanced Brain w/Dr Camilla Nord, Neuroscientist & Author A powerful reframing of mental health, grounded in cutting-edge neuroscientific research There are many routes to mental wellbeing and award-winning neuroscientist Camilla Nord is at the forefront of finding them. Dr Camilla Nord, leads the Mental Health Neuroscience Lab at the University of Cambridge, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, and she has a dual appointment as Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Department of Psychiatry. Her lab investigates brain-body interactions in neuropsychiatric disorders using methods from cognitive and computational neuroscience. The Balanced Brain by Camilla Nord offers a revelatory tour of the scientific and technological developments that are revolutionizing the way we think about mental health, showing why and how events - and treatments - can affect people in such different ways. In The Balanced Brain Nord reframes mental health as an intricate, self-regulating process, one which is different from all of us. She examines a huge diversity of treatments, from therapy to medication, to show how they work, and why they sometimes don't. In doing so, she reveals how the small things we do to lift our mood during the course of a day - a piece of chocolate, chatting to a friend - often work on the same pathways in our brain as the latest pharmacological treatments for mental health disorders. Whether they help us to manage pain, learn from experience or expend energy on the things that are important for survival, these conscious actions are part of a complex self-regulating process that is unique to each individual and the constant backdrop to our everyday lives. Nord shows that, with so many factors at play there are more possibilities for recovery and resilience than we might think. The Balanced Brain is an invitation to discover pathways that make each of us feel better and to understand why. Yvette Le Blowitz Podcast Host talks with Camilla Nord Author of The Balanced Brain to find out The Science of Mental Health. In Podcast Episode - EP.208 Camilla Nord shares: - a little bit about herself - insights into her book - The Balanced Brain - why is laughter good for us - is craving Chocolate bad for us - why did we experience depression during lockdown - why is Drive important when it comes to Mental Health - her own self-care rituals Plus we talk about so much more........
