This interdisciplinary project brings together experts in Law, AI enabled legal technologies, and Computer Sciences, among others to foster collaboration to provide a platform for exploring and testing a range of approaches for assessing the impact of AI in the law.
Can displaced communities, who are physically unable to access their ancestral lands, renew a sense of ownership over their tangible cultural heritage and assert their agency over its use? Archaeology of the Dispossessed directly grapples with this challenge and devises new ways to address it.
One in ten youth in the United Kingdom are neurodivergent with a diagnosis of autism, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and other neurocognitive conditions. Neurodivergent youth are more likely to experience physical and mental health challenges compared to their peers. These health challenges are exacerbated by a limited understanding of how neurodivergence is connected with physical and mental health challenges as they are often conceptualized independently, without considering their interconnections.
Stealing secrets is routinely seen as the world’s second oldest profession. However, despite rich literature on the history of intelligence agencies and operations, and the prominence of intelligence in contemporary politics, intelligence is a Cinderella in international relations theory and efforts to create a distinct theory of intelligence are also limited.
Walking is a basic and universal form of travel. In the English language, there are multiple words for different types of walks. When we walk to work, we call it a commute. When we walk in large numbers, we call it a march, a parade, a protest, or a mob. Long walks imbued with spiritual purpose are pilgrimages. Walking as research can allow us to interrogate the past, critique the present, and imagine the future. The body as a tool – the act of walking as a creative methodology – is a vital link between theory and practice particularly when studying landscapes, both historic and contemporary.
This project is led by the Centre for Neurodiversity & Development with the aim of increasing interdisciplinary capacity and shaping future funding priorities in the area of neurodiversity and autism research at Durham University.
Through a series of five conversations, this project seeks to identify basic transformative concepts in ML and AI concepts that resonate across the sciences and humanity to serve as the foundation of a multiyear research project
This Development Project through a series of workshops, seeks to build on existing synergies emerging from discussion within the BAME network on the absence/presence of Durham’s ‘black’ (refers to those who see themselves as being politically black) history. It seeks to contribute to the debates on decolonising by exploring institutions, archives, black students in Durham’s history and explore the impact of these findings on pedagogies and curriculums within the University.
This project aims to create dialogue between scholars working in discrete fields of politics and everyday emotions, and to consolidate a critical mass at DU working in the field of ‘feeling political’ (intimacies, politics and everyday life) and build research capacity.
