'About Time' Event
Warwick Arts Centre Studio, University of Warwick. 1hr 45 mins. Age 10+

"What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know". (St Augustine).

What if time did not really pass or flow? If there was no real difference between the past and the future? If 'now' were just a matter of where you happen to be, just like 'here'? How can we square our day-to-day experience of time with these incredible claims, all of which are made by leading physicists?

Theatre, dance, psychology, and philosophy combine in a set of ground-breaking performances that grapple with what it means to exist in a time-bound world. Teresa McCormack (Queen's University Belfast) and Christoph Hoerl (University of Warwick) join the artists to introduce the ideas.

Big Telly Theatre Company, BBeyond Performance Art, and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company.

Event supported through funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

'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.
