Hay Festival - Law in the Time of Cholera

Date
01/06/2016 (10:00)
Location:
Oxfam Moot
Description
Law in the Time of Cholera: Resolving the Dispute between Haiti and the United Nations - University of Birmingham Series. UN peacekeepers are bound, at the very least, to do no harm. But what happens when the peacekeepers bring untold suffering to those they are sent to protect? In 2010 a contingent of Nepalese peacekeepers brought cholera into Haiti, a country where the disease had not existed for more than 100 years. More than 800,000 people have been infected and more than 9,000 have died. Yet no remedies have been made available to the victims, and the UN has relied on legal immunity to resist any claims being brought to court. Freedman and Lemay-Hebert are Senior Lecturers at Birmingham University's Law School and International Development Department.

The Global Middle East in the Age of Speed
Date
02 (09:00) - 03/06/2016 (17:00)
Location:
Hornton Grange, 53 Edgbaston Park Road, Edgbaston, B15 2TT
Description
A transformative technology, automobility in its various incarnations globalized unevenly after World War One, altering a variety of social practices and inflecting the wider dynamics of production and consumption. From new roads, production lines and showrooms, to traffic jams, garages, advertisements, car accidents, joy riders, and (counter-) insurgency techniques - to name just a few phenomena - motorized vehicles and the conditions they provoked altered conceptions of time, senses of place or authenticity, and the production of space. This workshop seeks to explore a major gap in the historical literature on the Middle East and will so do not simply within the discipline of history but will draw upon expertise from Geography, African Studies, Anthropology, and Civil Engineering.
