The Genealogy Seminar


The Genealogy Seminar is a venue for multi-disciplinary discussion about “genealogical reasoning”: that is, reasoning that involves considerations of the origins and evolution of beliefs, practices, natural entities, languages, concepts, ideologies, texts, and patterns of behaviour. What can we hope to learn from such genealogies, and what role should such genealogical considerations play in disciplinary methodology? Scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences will reflect on the uses to which genealogical reasoning is put in their disciplines, and the many issues raised by such genealogical thinking.

After each presentation there will be ample time for discussion and wine will be served. All members of the University are warmly invited.
