  1. Against Storytelling Symposium III (March 15, 2019) | Storytelling and Forgetfulness

    ‘Storytelling and Forgetfulness’

    Amit Chaudhuri (writer, musician, Professor of Contemporary Literature, University of East Anglia, and Fellow, Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination, Paris) speaks of the difference between storytelling and writing. The talk will be chaired by Robert O’Meally (Zora Neale Hurston Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia and Fellow at the Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination, Paris).

    ———

    This symposium aims to raise questions about the rise and centrality of ‘storytelling’ in the past few decades, and what this signifies to a culture. It asks if imaginative work has aspects that hold the attention as much as – often more than – ‘story’ does.

    It is part of the ‘literary activism’ series conceptualised and curated by Amit Chaudhuri from December 2014 onwards, whose original mission statement can be read here:

    The symposiums have been hosted since their inception by the University of East Anglia with partner institutions like Ashoka University, Presidency University, and Jadavpur University in India, and Oxford University in the UK. They aim to create a conversation and space, distinct from the literary festival or the academic conference, where creative practice may be discussed by write…

  2. Tom Holland | How Christianity Gained Dominion | A Secular Historian Loses His Faith (In Liberalism)

    Tom Holland is an historian and author of many books including "Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind." Here he speaks with Glen Scrivener about losing his faith. But the faith that he loses is a faith in what he calls "the pallid simulacrum" of Christianity — western liberal values. Instead he has found himself surrendering to the moral and mythical truth of the stories — ie the stories of Christianity.

    RESET is a series of conversations exploring the meaning crisis. With the help of cultural analysts and biblical scholars we’re going back to the beginning — to Genesis, the West’s great origins story — to see whether the ancient text can speak today.

    In these interviews, Glen Scrivener, an ordained church minister and filmmaker, asks questions about conflict, suffering, death, sex, equality, science, and what it means to be human. This is the third interview in the series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4zD5797LHdfMAdMokPT9wtUl5TxJ5_np

  5. Reinventing Organizations

    A talk, followed by Q&A, by Frederic Laloux about "Reinventing Organizations", a research and book that is turning into an international phenomenon.

    Increasingly, employees and managers (but also doctors, nurses, teachers, etc.) are disillusioned with the way we run organizations today. We all somehow sense that there simply must be better ways to run our businesses, nonprofits, schools and hospitals.

    This hopeful talk shares the key insights from groundbreaking research into the emergence, in different parts of the world, of truly powerful and soulful organizations that have made a radical leap beyond today’s management thinking.

    (It starts with the story of how organizations evolved over time. You can skip to minute 28 to hear the story of Buurtzorg, one of the extraordinary pioneering organizations, that revolutionized home care in the Netherlands. At minute 36, the talk goes into self-management. At minute 52 into wholeness at work. And at 1:06 into evolutionary purpose in organizations. Q&A start at 1:21.)

    Correction: As I was quoting figures from memory, I got two figures wrong related to Morning Star’s market share in tomato paste in the US, and in tomato trucking. In both cases Morning Star’s market share is above 30%. As ‘The Economist’ says in such cases: sorry.
