2016 UK Kant Society Annual Conference: Kant, Normativity, and Naturalism ()

- 2016-09-06
2016-09-052016-09-06
Organised by: Philosophy
How should we understand normativity and its relation to the natural world? Is it true that the scientific representation of nature ultimately has no room for normative phenomena? How, if at all, can such phenomena be ‘naturalized’? Do they need to be? The dominant terms in which these problems continue to be framed owe an enormous debt to Kant. This conference aims to explore the problem of normativity and naturalism in Kant’s own work, to probe Kant’s legacy in shaping current approaches to the problem, and to envision afresh the contribution his thought may yet make. The conference welcomes papers on all themes related to Kant’s philosophy, and in particular hopes to foster debate on the above.

Mindfulness is about learning to be in the moment and moving away from ruminating on the past or worrying about the future. Studies show that this helps to reduce the level of stress we experience. In this course you will learn a range of formal and informal practices which includes meditation and a variety of cognitive exercises aimed at bringing greater awareness, clarity, concentration and choice to experience. The course involves attendance at a group for 2 hours per week and daily home practice. If you are interested in finding out more or would like an application form please email enable@soton.ac.uk. After you have completed an application form you will be invited for an informal pre-course interview.

2016-11-25T13:00:00+00:002016-11-25T14:00:00+00:00
My background is in Soil and Water Science from the University of California at Riverside. I am a pollution scientist with an interest in understanding its effects on microbial ecology and function in soil and water systems. In most cases, my research is leaning towards the 'applied' with a policy relevant angle, such as the studies I've conducted into characterising the nature and effects of large-scale pharmaceutical use (e.g. antivirals, such as Tamiflu, and antibiotics), during an influenza pandemic. Current research aims to better understand the drivers of antibiotic resistance in the environment and their implications to ecosystems and human health. I maintain activity in the field of wastewater epidemiology, which aims to understand human behaviour and health through the analysis of sewage, e.g. pathogen incidence and prevalence, drug compliance. I also contribute to one of CEH's flagship projects, COSMOS-UK, which is a UK soil moisture monitoring network based on an experimental cosmic ray soil moisture sensor.

Crop Seminar Series lecture with Prof. Dr. Andrea Carminati, University of Goettingen (13:00)

2017-03-03T13:00:00+00:002017-03-03T14:00:00+00:00
I am interested in understanding the processes controlling water flow in soils and plants. My hypothesis is that the root-soil interface, where soil and plants meet, is a central region in soil-vegetation process. Although it is a small-scale process, it has significant applications for water use efficiency, agriculture, plant breeding and grass lands. My recent studies showed that the soil near roots, the rhizosphere, has particular properties that favour root water uptake from drying soils. However, the rhizosphere may ultimately turn hydrophobic after being dried. What are the consequences for root water uptake? Is this a strategy of plants to isolate roots from dry soils? Could the rhizosphere hydrophobicity affect soil moisture dynamics at larger scale (evaporation, preferential flow, etc…), as well as vegetation patterns?
