It is semester break at Waseda, so I am spending some time back in Australia. I am happy to announce that I will be giving a series of seminars while I am here. These are based around my new research project, which explores the political uses of humility. I’m very excited to have the chance to share some initial thoughts on what I have been working on recently and I am looking forward to receiving some feedback. Next Monday, I will be returning to my old department at the ANU. I am happy to be heading back and there I will be talking about humility in reference to the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. On Tuesday, I’ll be visiting the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the University of Canberra where I will be discussing the value of humility for democracy. I will have a similar focus on Wednesday when at the Sydney Democracy Network. Information for the seminars is below.
