Graduate Studies in National Security Policy

Location: Haydon Allan Tank Haydon Allan Lecture Theatre [23]

Time: 10.30am – 11.00am

Add to my calendar

Prof Roger Bradbury/ Dr Tim Legrand
The national security environment is dynamic and evolving. Here we explore past, present and emerging security threats and consider how multi-disciplinary analysis can strengthen knowledge and practices of national security.
National security policy and practices must rapidly adapt to meet emerging global and domestic security threats. The matrices of threat are diverse and link directly to domestic social, economic and political priorities: cyber-threats and critical infrastructure, climate change and natural disasters, terrorism and public safety, piracy, energy security, ethical issues, and so on. Meeting these challenges prompts important questions: How is the nature of 'security' changing? Can we forestall or mitigate 'threats'? We suggest that rigorous multidisciplinary research, informed by policy and practice, is critical to responding to and understanding these challenges.

Reclaiming Society: Studying Sociology and Social Policy

Location: MCC5 Manning Clark Centre [26a]

Time: 2.00pm – 2.30pm

Add to my calendar

Dr Gavin JD Smith

Have you ever wondered whether your thoughts, feelings and actions are your own? This question is not as strange as it may first appear. It is instead the focal point for sociological analyses of selfhood, and for policy studies of statehood. It will also be the key concern for the talk.

The disciplines of Sociology and Policy Studies give students a means to identify, analyse and understand the texture of social relations and the functioning of social institutions. They provide students with a conceptual language and methodological skill set to problematise familiar social processes.

The resources dispensed in the course of studying these perspectives reveal that the taken for granted assumptions individuals rely on to engage and navigate the social world are less the effect of chance, and more the result of powerful discourses that are purposefully designed to exercise influence over things. An upshot of this situation is that individuals come to embody ideas and ideals that reflect the logics of the market, and the desires of the legislator, rather than the actual experiences and realities of the situation.

The talk addresses what Sociology is and why studying it matters in today's global world.
