MAP Seminar: 'Coping with the Imposter Syndrome'
The Cowling Room (S2.77), 2nd Floor, Social Sciences Building

This MAP seminar will be on the role of the imposter syndrome in academia. This will be an opportunity for us to share our own experiences and to reason together about the impact of the imposter syndrome and about possible strategies that can be used to cope with it or to overcome it. Quassim Cassam will guide and direct our conversation.

To begin to think about the matter, you can take a look at any or all of the following short entries:

'Philosophy in a Time of Crisis' Public Lecture by Professor Etienne Balibar: 'Circulation and Hospitality as Fundamental Rights'
Room S0.21, Social Sciences Building

A migrants and refugees in increasing numbers are subjected to extreme violence in their attempts at crossing borders to reach a more liveable place, a fundamental reflection is needed to update the concepts which frame mankind's treatment of its own mobility. This includes a critical return on the question of the "law of population" of capitalism, but also a jurisdicial elaboration of the rights of circulation and hospitality which articulate territory, citizenship, and community. At stake, ultimately, is a political transformation of the world into a place where everyone can live a decent life.

Etienne Balibar is Emeritus Professor at Paris X Nanterre and Anniversary Chair of Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University, London. He is an internationally recognised political philosopher and critical thinker, a leading voice in the Marxist tradition, and the author of Spinoza and Politics, The Philosophy of Marx and co-author of Race, Nation and Class and Reading Capital. In these, any many other seminal works, he has addressed fundamental questions such as racism, the notion of the border, whether a European citizenship is possible or desirable, violence, identity and emancipation.
