Three pathogens and three secretion systems - stories on host cell manipulation and interbacterial competition Cancelled

Kings College: Guy’s Campus

event

Speaker: Dr Ethel Bayer Santos, Department of Microbiology, University of São Paulo.    Bacterial secretion systems are trans-envelope multi-protein structures dedicated to the transport of macromolecules. Many pathogens use Type III, Type IV and Type VI secretion systems to deliver protein substrates, called effectors, into target host cells and bacterial competitors. The evolutionary origin of these secretion systems differs significantly: T3SS are related to the flagellar apparatus; T4SS were originally described as conjugative bridges for DNA transfer, and T6SS are related to contractile phage tails. Effectors secreted by these systems display a wide array of functions ranging from host cell manipulation to intoxication of rival bacteria. Dr. Ethel Bayer Santos will give an overview of her contributions to this field and present the latest research from her group.

Age of Light [POSTPONED]

Kings College: Strand Campus

event

[POSTPONED] - This event has been postponed, details on rearrangements to follow.    ---   Light is the driving force of every living thing on earth, from plants to plankton and everything in-between. Our physiology is defined by the cycle of night and day, and our culture is infused with light as a metaphor for wisdom and clarity while its opposite – darkness – is a universal symbol of mystery and evil. We have used light as a messenger from flaming torches to fibre optics and quantum computers. And this is just the beginning. We are entering a new age of light with greater awareness of the impact of artificial light on ourselves and our environment, and remarkable new materials and techniques to harness the power of this fascinating domain. This unique one-day symposium brings together world-leading experts across science and the arts with a common passion for light. Over lunch, guests will be invited to a scientific poster session to learn about the Commission for Dark Skies and interact with the Third Age of Light VR installation by lighting design consultancy Spiers and Major. We will conclude with drinks and networking. The event is hosted by the London Institute for Advanced Light Technologies and King’s College London to celebrate the UNESCO International Day of Light 2020 which will be held in May. Tickets cost £75 and is inclusive of refreshments, lunch and a drinks reception on the day. Speirs + Major - Third Age of Light - Aerial View

The History of Synagogue Music in London

Gresham College: Barnard's Inn Hall

event

The Jewish communities of London have a rich musical-liturgical history, stretching back to the mid-17th century. This lecture will consider some of the main musical developments since then, beginning with the Sephardi and Ashkenazi synagogues which stood practically side-by-side in the City of London for 250 years. We will examine the birth of the Anglo-Jewish choral tradition, the split with the Reform movement and its musical consequences, and the new music brought more recently by immigrants from Eastern Europe and Arab lands.No reservations are required for this lecture.

Essential Skills for future lawyers: What skills do young lawyers need for 21st century practice? Cancelled

Kings College: Bush House, Strand Campus

event

In an ever changing, fast paced world, it is now a generally accepted view that just knowing the law (however well) is simply not enough for someone looking to join the profession. Young lawyers are, more than even, being asked to come armed with new understanding of technology, business, client management, sales and marketing, the legal industry and, in particular, a greater and more developed skillset.   With a wealth of information between them , our speakers, Nigel Spencer (Senior Client Director and Executive Coach at the Saïd Business School and former Global Director of Learning and Development for Simmons & Simmons LLP and Reed Smith) and Roger Parker (Senior Counsel and ex. Managing Partner for Europe, Middle East, Asia and Asia Pacific for Reed Smith) will discuss what skills and aptitudes young lawyers need for modern legal practice.   This talk will take place between 6.30pm and 8pm on Tuesday, 21 April 2020 at the Bush House Auditorium, Bush House Campus.  Drinks reception to follow in the Arcade.    Speaker Bios:   Nigel Spencer: Nigel specialises in leadership development within the professional service sector. This includes future legal career paths, embedding executive coaching in organisations, and the development of degree programmes. Prior to joining Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, Nigel spent 20 years in professional services. Initially he was in a client-facing role at PwC. Latterly, he held Global Director of Learning and Development roles at two global law firms. He also led the creation of the first ‘Innovation Hub’ in a global law firm. He has also held board roles at higher education research institutes and at the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. He is a Visiting (Industry) Professor at the School of Law, Queen Mary University, London. Formerly, he was a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford. Nigel has a BA and PhD from London University. Nigel Spencer Roger Parker: Roger is an Institute of Leadership and Management Level 5 accredited coach and mentor. He is a Centre of Dispute Resolution accredited mediator and LLB (Hons), UCL. As well as extensive cross-border legal and management experience Roger has sat as a non-executive on the boards of insurance and media services companies and the Committee of the City of London Law Society. Roger participates in the 30% Club mentoring scheme. As a solicitor at Richards Butler, Roger drove the merger with Reed Smith to create one of the largest legal businesses in the world. As a member of the combined firm’s Senior Management Team for 10 years and Managing Partner EMEA, Roger laid the foundations for significant growth in European and Asia markets and managed Reed Smith’s $400m legal services business for EurAsia. Roger is a market leader in professional services thinking and implementation.

Sino-Pakistani relations: Politics, military and regional dynamics Cancelled

Kings College: Bush House, Strand Campus

event

Abstract: Sino-Pakistani relations have been at heart of Asia’s geopolitics in recent years. Since the announcement of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor as the 'flagship project' of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, the relationship between Islamabad and Beijing has morphed into a multi-dimensional partnership. This includes infrastructural and economic components. While a qualitative shift in the bilateral ties has occurred, the military component has retained its central role over the years, reflecting the power structure within Pakistan. This talk unpacks the political and military dynamics behind Sino-Pakistani Relations over the past 20 years, looking at the wider trends in the relationship as well as at the evolution and implementation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. *If you are external to King's and would like to attend this event, please contact the event organiser directly. About the speaker Filippo Boni (The Open University) is Lecturer in Politics and International Studies. His first book 'Sino-Pakistani Relations. Politics, Military and Regional Dynamics' (Routledge, 2019) details the evolution of the relationship between Pakistan and China, against the backdrop of Pakistan’s domestic politics. He is the co-editor of, and contributor to, Asia Maior, Italy’s leading academic publication on Asia’s current affairs, and he is a Graduate and Early Career Representative on the executive council of the British Association for South Asian Studies (BASAS). He tweets @FilippoBoni1.

The Mayflower: A London-Leiden Adventure

Gresham College: Dutch Church, Austin Friars

event

The story of the Mayflower is usually presented as a tale of persecuted Pilgrims crossing the Atlantic in circumstances of grave adversity to inhabit a desolate wilderness. There is another perspective. This lecture asks not where did they go to, but where did they come from? Who paid the piper? Who called the tune? Who hosted and protected them for years before the voyage, and who taught them the tolerant values that 17th-century Puritans usually lacked?

Answering these questions convincingly is key to the efforts of states and international organisations in preventing humanitarian catastrophes and mass atrocities, but also in avoiding harm to the interests of states in an era of interconnected politics and porous borders. A new book by Christoph Meyer, Chiara De Franco and Florian Otto - Warning about War: Conflict, Persuasion and Foreign Policy, published by Cambridge University Press - challenges conventional accounts that tend to blame decision-makers' lack of receptivity and political will. The authors offer a new theoretical framework explaining how distinct 'paths of persuasion' are shaped by a select number of factors, including conflict characteristics, political contexts, and source-recipient relations. This is the first study to integrate persuasion attempts by analysts, diplomats and senior officials with those by journalists and NGO staff. Its ambitious comparative design encompasses three states (the US, UK, and Germany) and international organisations (the United Nations, European Union, and Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe) and looks in depth at four conflict cases: Rwanda (1994), Darfur (2003), Georgia (2008) and Ukraine (2014). The launch event will take place on 23 April from 18.00 – 19.30, followed by a reception in Lecture Theatre 1, Bush House, Strand campus. The launch-event will feature a brief presentation of the book’s key arguments and findings by the authors, following by short reflections from three experts and a question and answer session. The expert discussants are: Kate Ferguson is co-executive director of the NGO Protection Approaches and inaugural chair of Policy at the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect at the University of Leeds. Karen E. Smith is professor of international relations at the LSE and head of the Department of International Relations. Alexander Downer is executive chair of the International School for Government at King’s and a trustee of International Crisis Group. Between 1996-2007 he served as Australia’s foreign minister. About the authors: Christoph Meyer is professor of European and international politics at King’s College London and vice-dean (research) at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Public Policy at King’s. Chiara De Franco is associate professor of international relations at the University of Southern Denmark and director of the international research programme ‘Protection Complexity’. Florian Otto is associate director of control risks based in the Frankfurt Office. He manages a team of analysts covering political operational and security risks in Western Europe and Turkey.

The UK and Multi-Level Financial Regulation: From Post-Crisis Reform to Brexit Cancelled

Kings College: Strand Campus

event

You are invited to a book launch for The UK and Multi-Level Financial Regulation: From Post-Crisis Reform to Brexit by Dr Scott James (King’s College London) and Professor Lucia Quaglia (University of Bologna). The book will be introduced by the authors, and discussed by Professor David Coen (University College London) and Sam Lowe (Centre for European Reform). The book examines the UK’s role in shaping post-crisis financial regulation, and assesses the implications of withdrawal from the EU. It develops a novel domestic political economy approach to examine how the interaction of elected officials, regulators, and industry shaped UK preferences, strategy, and influence in international and EU-level regulatory negotiations across five case studies: bank capital requirements; recovery and resolution rules; bank structural reform; hedge fund regulation; and derivatives regulation. The book concludes by reflecting on what these lessons tell us about the likely future of UK financial regulation after Brexit. Refreshments (wine and canapés) will be provided. The event takes place on Thursday, 23 April, from 18.00 - 20.30. Entry to the event is free, with tickets available via Eventbrite here. Full details about the book can be found here.

Sino-Pakistani relations: Politics, military and regional dynamics Cancelled

Kings College:Bush House, Strand Campus

event

Abstract: Sino-Pakistani relations have been at heart of Asia’s geopolitics in recent years. Since the announcement of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor as the 'flagship project' of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, the relationship between Islamabad and Beijing has morphed into a multi-dimensional partnership. This includes infrastructural and economic components. While a qualitative shift in the bilateral ties has occurred, the military component has retained its central role over the years, reflecting the power structure within Pakistan. This talk unpacks the political and military dynamics behind Sino-Pakistani Relations over the past 20 years, looking at the wider trends in the relationship as well as at the evolution and implementation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. *If you are external to King's and would like to attend this event, please contact the event organiser directly. About the speaker Filippo Boni (The Open University) is Lecturer in Politics and International Studies. His first book 'Sino-Pakistani Relations. Politics, Military and Regional Dynamics' (Routledge, 2019) details the evolution of the relationship between Pakistan and China, against the backdrop of Pakistan’s domestic politics. He is the co-editor of, and contributor to, Asia Maior, Italy’s leading academic publication on Asia’s current affairs, and he is a Graduate and Early Career Representative on the executive council of the British Association for South Asian Studies (BASAS). He tweets @FilippoBoni1.

The Mayflower: A London-Leiden Adventure

Gresham College:Dutch Church, Austin Friars

event

The story of the Mayflower is usually presented as a tale of persecuted Pilgrims crossing the Atlantic in circumstances of grave adversity to inhabit a desolate wilderness. There is another perspective. This lecture asks not where did they go to, but where did they come from? Who paid the piper? Who called the tune? Who hosted and protected them for years before the voyage, and who taught them the tolerant values that 17th-century Puritans usually lacked?

The 2020 Edgington Lectures: Catherine Z. Elgin

Birkbeck: Birkbeck Main Building, B35

event

Book your place now The 5th biennial Edgington Lectures will be delivered by Professor Cathrine Z. Elgin (Harvard) on the 24th and 25th of April, 2020 at the Department of Philosophy, Birkbeck College, London. Professor Elgin will speak on The Realm of Epistemic Ends. The lectures are free to attend and all are welcome (you are encouraged to RSVP here). The Realm of Epistemic Ends Epistemic agents are ineluctably interdependent. We are nodes in epistemic networks, supporting and supported by others. Via testimony we convey and glean information. We teach and learn from others – not just facts but also techniques, strategies, standards, and skills that are vital to our understanding of the world. Each of us relies on methods and devices that she could never have invented, validated, or calibrated on her own. If epistemic autonomy requires complete independence, it is a chimera. But if autonomy is a matter of self-government, our situation is different. The autonomous agent, Kant maintains, makes the rules that bind her. She does so not in isolation, but as a legislating member of a realm of ends – that is, as one among many who jointly ratify those rules. Building on the account of epistemic normativity I presented in True Enough, I will argue that epistemic communities are quasi-Kantian communities of epistemic ends. Members of such communities are autonomous epistemic agents who collectively certify epistemic norms by justifying those norms to one another. I will show that the constraints on a realm of ends insure that this does not make knowledge or understanding relativistic or subjective. Epistemic autonomy and epistemic interdependence are mutually supportive. Graduate Workshop In tandem with the Edgington Lectures, Professor Elgin will lead a workshop which graduate students in philosophy and related disciplines are invited to attend. Information about a call for papers is available here. We will post the workshop programme and location as they become available. The workshop is also free.
