  2. Gender, Inequality and Power - Video and audio - News and media - Home

    Speaker(s): Professor Diane Perrons Chair: Professor Naila Kabeer

    Recorded on 1 October 2014 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

    This lecture takes an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective to highlight the persistence of gender inequalities, the power relations that support these inequalities, and the everyday processes through which such inequalities are reproduced and normalised. By addressing inequality in this way, it is possible to obtain a fuller understanding of contemporary economic inequality and what to do about it. Diane Perrons is Gender Institute director and a professor of economic geography and gender studies at LSE. Naila Kabeer is professor of gender and development at LSE. The Gender Institute (@lsegendertweet) was established in 1993 to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations. This remains a central aim of the Institute today, which is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe.

  3. The Paradox of China’s Peaceful Rise - Video and audio - News and media - Home

    Speaker(s): Professor Barry Buzan, Professor Arne Westad Chair: Professor Michael Cox

    Recorded on 7 October 2014 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

    Despite the widespread view that China does not have a coherent grand strategy, China has already articulated one that is based on the home-grown idea of ‘peaceful rise/development’ (PRD). The key issue is whether the logic of this grand strategy, and the contradictions within it, are fully understood, and whether China has sufficient depth and coherence in its policy-making processes to implement such a strategy. This lecture will explore key issues arising from the idea of ‘Peaceful Rise/Development’. Professor Barry Buzan is a senior fellow at LSE IDEAS and the Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at LSE. Professor Arne Westad (@OAWestad) is the director of LSE IDEAS. Professor Michael Cox is founding co-director of LSE IDEAS and emeritus professor in international relations.

  5. Putinism: the ideology - Video and audio - News and media - Home

    Speaker(s): Professor Anne Applebaum

    Recorded on 12 February 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

    Containing elements of managed democracy and corporate capitalism – and reflecting the culture and values of the 1980s KGB – Putinism is now taught to Russian children and propagated in the media. It has an ostensible goal: along with protecting the power and wealth of Putin and his inner circle, it proposes to make Russia strong and feared again.

    Speaker(s): Professor Andrew Murray

    Chair: Professor Julia Black

    Recorded on 30 September 2015 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

    HAL 9000 will soon no longer be science fiction: sentient machines will quickly be with us. As “smart agents” make decisions for human actors a number of issues will emerge centred on four key challenges: privacy, personality, liberty, and locus. These are the themes behind Professor Andrew Murray’s forthcoming book - The Objective Self:

    Identity and Law in the Digital Society. It conveys the thematic message that our concepts of personality and self will have to evolve as artificial intelligences develop. This lecture will not be able to examine the whole message of the book but Professor Andrew Murray will introduce the concept of The Objective Self, assisted, supplementary and autonomous decision-making and discuss machine intelligence and regulation by design. He will demonstrate that in the next 50-100 years everything we know and understand about law will become incorrect requiring lawyers to fundamentally alter their understanding of what the law is and what it can achieve. Andrew Murray (@AndrewDMurray) is Professor of Law with particular reference to New Media and Technology Law at LSE. Julia Black is Pro Director for Research at LSE and Professor of Law. LSE Law (@LSELaw) is an integral part of the School’s mission, plays a major role in policy debates and in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.

    Speaker(s): Professor Frank Pasquale

    Recorded on 26 January 2016 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

    From search engine results to credit scores, software orders and weights hundreds of variables into clean, simple interfaces, taking us from question to answer in a fraction of a second. But the rise of big data and predictive analytics in media and finance has alarmed many academics, activists, journalists and legal experts. Three aspects of algorithmic ordering of information have provoked particular scrutiny. The data used may be inaccurate or inappropriate. Algorithmic modeling may be biased or limited. And the uses of algorithms are still opaque in many critical sectors. Policymakers must address each of these problems, but face two major obstacles. First, how can regulators apply expert judgment given rapidly changing technology and business practices? Second, when is human review essential-and when will controversies over one algorithmic ordering merely result in a second computational analysis of a contested matter? Focusing on recent controversies over the "right to be forgotten" and alternative credit scoring (such as proposals to base loan approvals on qualities of the applicant’s social network contacts), this talk will propose reforms essential to humane automation of new media and banking. This event marks the 2015-16 launch of the MSc Media and Communications (Data and Society). Frank Pasquale (@FrankPasquale) is Professor of Law at the University of Maryland and author of The Black Box Society. Evelyn Ruppert (@ESRuppert) is Professor in the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
