Critical Research in the Global Politics of Hope
Social & Policy Sciences
University of Bath

Our aims are first to identify the global power dynamics of systems for scholarly writing and publication, to name key dimensions of this power, and recognise their enactment in writing practice: How do we position ourselves in relation to dominant structures and cultures of knowledge production? How do we deal with these in our environments? Second, we will consider the context of academic publishing and writing (globally and in your location), identify some of the challenges of writing within and beyond the scientific world system and explore what are the existing ‘resources of hope and possibility’ in writing practice: How can we stay true to, and communicate, the principles of critical theories and methodologies when publishing new ideas in our academic and political contexts? How do we recognise, nourish and expand resources of possibility and hope in our and others’ writing within these environments? Finally, we will discuss some strategies for communicating and publishing our ideas across borders. How do we communicate new ideas at and across epistemological and geographic borders? How do we practice, defend and create conditions for the flourishing of plurality in writing?
This talk is based on a BA sponsored Writing Workshop that we run at the Benemérita University of Puebla, Mexico, in September 2018: Writing for another world. More information, please see https://writingforanotherworld.wordpress.com

Assistive and Enabling Technologies: Past, Present and Future
6:30pm - 9pm

From Post-it notes to sat navs; we use assistive technologies every day, to make our lives easier.
For those with long term disabilities and health problems, they can enable people to live independent, fulfilled lives.
We would love to welcome you along to our 50th Annual Lecture with talks from Professor Roger Orpwood, Professor Nigel Harris and Professor Praminda Caleb-Solly.
Designability (formerly Bath Institute of Medical Engineering) has been at the forefront of development of assistive technologies for 50 years.
A pioneer of user centered design
From the 1990s, Roger Orpwood was one of the pioneers of user centred design techniques for people with disabilities. Working with the team, he established the charity as the world leader in the development of early years powered mobility and the development of technology to support people living with dementia and their carers.
Roger will be joining us to share some of the interesting insights and experiences that he gained from this work.
Translating research into exciting new technology
Over the last few years, there has been some change in perceptions of assistive technology and there is now less of a stigma associated with its use. In part, this has been due to recognition of the importance of aesthetics and better marketing of the technology, which is has resulted in an emerging mainstream retail market.
Nigel Harris has overseen the translation of research into new technologies through to new products, which has established Designability as the UK’s most successful independent developer of products to support people living with dementia. He will outline some of challenges and barriers to full adoption and acceptance of assistive technology.
Caring for an ageing population with some help from robotics
We have an ageing population and over the next decade there will be more people living with disabilities than ever before. Advances in digital technologies and robotics, coupled with a growing consumer market for these technologies, offer significant potential for new products and services that will enable people to live safe, independent lives. However, there are unresolved questions about over reliance on these technologies and the loss of human social contact. Praminda Caleb-Solly leads a joint Designability – University of West of England research programme that is exploring the development and application of these new technologies. Praminda will give us a vision of the future applications and opportunities for these new digital technologies.
