UNITAR's online courses on the United Nations System and Negotiation Skills

Dear UNCSD-l readers,

The Multilateral Diplomacy Programme (MDP) at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) invites you to participate in the newest edition of its e-learning courses on:

Introduction to the United Nations System, in English, 4 February – 17 March 2013 (Application deadline: 28 January 2013) Course fee: 800 USD

As an increasingly globalized world continues to underline the importance of multilateral dialogue and cooperation in confronting this century's challenges, the UN will remain a central forum for progressing ideas and a platform for action. This course aims to provide a historical, political, and analytical framework for liaising more effectively with UN representatives and staff. At the end of this e-Learning course, participants should be able to define the United Nations system's structure and functioning, explain the UN's principal organs and their development, identify current and salient issues relevant to the UN and explain a brief history of the UN system and its predecessors.

Call for papers - 8th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems - Dubrovnik2013

The Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES) Conference is an event devoted to scientists, engineers, policy makers, students and other interested parties in the field of sustainable development. The first six SDEWES Conferences were successfully held in Dubrovnik, organized by the University of Zagreb and Instituto Superior Tecnico - Lisbon and under the patronage of UNESCO - Paris, European Commission, DG RTD, FP INCO Programme - Brussels and other partner institutions, organisations and networks.

The scientific quality of the conferences is confirmed by the fact that leading international archival scientific journals, "Energy - The International Journal", "Applied Energy", "Journal of Water Resource Management", "Thermal Science", "Journal of Environmental Sciences and Health", "Waste Management & Research", "Management of Environmental Quality" and "Journal of Cleaner Production" have in the past dedicated and published special issues for selected and reviewed papers from the conferences, and some intend to do that also for the next SDEWES conference. The past publications resulting from the Conferences can be found on: http://www.sdewes.org/journals.php.

Due to huge interest in the topic we moved to yearly conference, odd year conferences being organised in Dubrovnik, and even year conferences organised in new and dazzling locations. The 7th SDEWES Conference was thus organised in Ohrid. The next conference is back to Dubrovnik, continuing the success of the 6th conference (drawing more than 400 participants from 55 countries, and 400 full papers).

The SDEWES Conference is dedicated to the improvement and dissemination of knowledge on methods, policies and technologies for increasing the sustainability of development by for example de-coupling growth from natural resources and replacing them with knowledge based economy, taking into account its economic, environmental and social pillars, as well as methods for assessing and measuring sustainability of development, regarding energy, transport, water, environment and food production systems and their many combinations. Sustainability being also a perfect field for interdisciplinary and multi-cultural evaluation of complex system, the SDEWES Conference has during the first decade of the 21st century become a significant venue for researchers in those areas to meet, and originate, discuss, share, and disseminate new ideas.

We are pleased to invite you to the 8th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES2013) which is going to be held in Dubrovnik - Croatia from September 22-27, 2013. The details about the Conference (important dates, conference fee, accommodation, contact addresses, etc.) can be found on the web site:

Rhetoric as Equipment for Living. Kenneth Burke, Culture and Education

Rhetoric as Equipment for Living. Kenneth Burke, Culture and Education.
22nd to 25th May 2013
Ghent, Belgium

Enquiries: kbconference@ugent.be
Web address: http://www.cultureeducation.ugent.be/kennethburke

The second half of the twentieth century has witnessed a number of different but related turns in the humanities and social sciences: linguistic, cultural, anthropological/ethnographic, interpretive, semiotic, narrative... All these turns recognise the importance of signs and symbols in our interpretations of reality and more specifically the cultural construction of meaning through both language and narrative. The aim of this conference is to introduce rhetoric as a major term for synthesizing all the above-mentioned turns by exploring how rhetoric can make us self-aware about language and culture. We will specifically focus on 'new rhetoric', a body of work that sets rhetoric free from its confinement within the traditional fields of education, politics and literature, not by abandoning these fields but by refiguring them.

Guiding source of inspiration in all this will be the international legacy of Kenneth Burke, one of the founders of this new rhetoric tradition together with scholars such as Wayne Booth, Richard McKeon, Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca. As a rhetorician and literary critic interested in how we use symbols, Burke described the human being as the symbol-making, symbol-using and symbol-misusing animal. He argued that our interpretations, perceptions, judgements and attitudes are all influenced and 'deflected' by the symbols that we make, use and misuse, and that we are at the same time used by these symbols. This implies that we can approach the world either symbol-wise or symbol-foolish. This conference wants to explore how rhetorical concepts can be used as tools - equipment - to make students, teachers, scholars and citizens symbol-wise: to understand the way linguistic, cultural, narrative... symbols work, and to develop critical engagement with, as well as on behalf of, those symbols. It furthermore wants to explore if and how rhetoric can still be relevant in a world that is becoming ever more complex and paradoxical by political, economic and cultural differences on a global scale.

In what will be the first major conference devoted to Kenneth Burke outside the United States, we aspire to introduce the ideas of this seminal thinker to disciplines that might benefit from them. We therefore welcome both paper abstracts as panel proposals that broadly explore the topic of Rhetoric as Equipment for Living from the perspective of education, citizenship, literature, literacy, technology, games, (new) media... and from the perspective of disciplines such as pedagogy, social work, psychology, cultural studies, management and communication. The committee especially welcomes contributions that examine the possible use of rhetoric for education or educators, as well as contributions that explore affinities between Burke and European scholars or scholarship, or that apply new rhetoric to political, economic or social issues.

11th Global Conference: Monsters and the Monstrous

11th Global Conference
Monsters and the Monstrous

Thursday 18th July - Saturday 20th July 2013
Mansfield College, Oxford

Call for Presentations
This inter and trans-disciplinary project examines all things monstrous; whether real or imagined, ideological or cultural, historic or futuristic. Building on the discussion points of the previous meeting, this year's event will focus upon points of concentration within issues raised at last years events as well as examining certain aspects of the current ubiquity of particular monsters in contemporary popular culture.

Presentations, papers, reports, work-in-progress, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related to any of the following themes:

- Humans as monsters and monsters as humans: Popular media sensationalism and fascination around humans as mass murderers, serial killers and pedophiles (Hitler, Ted Bundy, Jimmy Saville etc) and films such as Saw and Hostel where monsters are very much part of our everyday environment whilst figures such as Dexter and vegetarian vampires, that only kill animals or bad people, are considered heroes.
- The Zombie Apocalypse: the ubiquity of the zombie in popular culture both of what we are now and what we will/might become. As a political, ideological figure but also its continuing humanification in literature and film (Warm Bodies, Breathers, Wasting Away, Zombie Neighbour etc)
- Contagion, infection and disease: The continual fears around over population, invasion and infection causing, or caused by ecological, biological or technological virus's. Hybridity, mutation and cultural death-drive.
- Translation, appropriation and interpretation: The movement of monsters across time and cultures. How historical monsters have changed in later manifestations and how different cultures view, appropriate and reinterpret monsters from other nations (ie vampires moving from Europe to the USA, to Japan and back again)
- Children and monsters: Children as the target of monsters, children and childhood as monstrous. Monstrous babies and births, adults in children's bodies. Child vampires, zombies, demons and ghosts.
- Possession: The popularity of films and narratives around the theme of possession and mind control and the resultant anxieties over identity and the 'true' self. Demon possession, as in Paranormal Activity and The Devil Inside, Compelling, glamouring and mind control, as in Vampire Diaries and True Blood.
- The resurgence of faeries and fairy tales, as seen in series such as True Blood, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Haven, and how not all monsters are bad or can only exist in relation to a pre-existing script?
- The continuing use of Nazi's and Nazism as a short-hand for cultural and ideological monstrosity, as in Frostbite, Dead Snow, Hell Boy 1 and 2 , Iron Sky.

All of the above can also be considered in relation to cultural and geographical specificity, gender and sexuality, ethnicity and historical approaches.

What to Send:
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 15th March 2013. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 31st May 2013. Abstracts should be submitted to the Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats, following this order:

a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract, f) up to 10 keywords
E-mails should be entitled: Monsters11 Abstract Submission

Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). Please note that a Book of Abstracts is planned for the end of the year. All accepted abstracts will be included in this publication. We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.

Organising Chairs:

Rob Fisher: m11@inter-disciplinary.net
Simon Bacon : baconetti@googlemail.com

The aim of the conference is to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting. All papers accepted for and presented at this conference are eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected papers may be invited to go forward for development into a themed ISBN hard copy volume.

Masters in Conservation Leadership - University of Cambridge

Masters in Conservation Leadership
Applications and scholarship support for October 2013

The MPhil degree in Conservation Leadership at the University of Cambridge is a full-time, 11-month course aimed at graduates of leadership potential with at least three to five years of relevant experience in biodiversity conservation. Based in the University's Department of Geography, a unique feature of this course is its delivery by members of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI), a partnership between six university departments and nine conservation organisations or networks based in and around Cambridge. The teaching focuses on issues of management and leadership, with the dual goals of developing conservationists with enhanced research skills and a greater awareness of the complex drivers of biodiversity loss, while also developing their ability to act and lead effectively.  Consequently, the course aims to deliver a world-class and interdisciplinary education in Conservation Leadership that is not available elsewhere.
•       We now welcome applications for entry to the course in October 2013.  For further details on how to apply, please visit the course website: www.geog.cam.ac.uk/graduate/mphil/conservation
•       The final closing date for all applications is 28 March 2013.
•       Applicants wishing to apply for funding from the Cambridge Trusts should apply by 1 December 2012.
We are pleased to confirm that the Miriam Rothschild Scholarship Programme in Conservation Leadership will continue to provide scholarship support to students from less developed and developing countries that are rich in biodiversity, to attend the MPhil in Conservation Leadership.  The number and size of these will vary from full scholarships, to partial scholarships that cover specific aspects of the funding package required by students.  Nevertheless, applicants are also encouraged to seek out funding opportunities that might be available locally or nationally.

If you have any queries about making an application, please contact Emily Chenery, Programme Administrator: emily.chenery@geog.cam.ac.uk

Conservation Leadership MS Program - Colorado State University

Conservation Leadership MS Program - Colorado State University 

Now accepting applications for August 2013 start

Society is faced with some of the greatest challenges in history, from climate change to biodiversity loss to energy security and beyond. We need leaders who think differently, embrace complexity, and see the human and environmental condition as one intricate system. CSU's Conservation Leadership Program, also called, Conservation Leadership Through Learning (CLTL) is a 21-month Master of Science degree that will prepare students to be a part of the next generation of conservation leaders who will tackle these dynamic challenges. In August 2013, the third cohort of students will begin an intensive educational journey in the United States and around the world. CLTL merges trans-disciplinary university education with real-world action to train leaders who can deliver on-the-ground benefits for conservation and communities. By reaching far beyond the classroom walls, students will develop the knowledge and real-world skills to become effective conservation leaders making a difference for the environment and people's lives.

CLTL is a partnership between Colorado State University's Warner College of Natural Resources and our university, NGO, governmental, and community partners around the world.  For more information, please visit our website (http://leadershipthroughlearning.org/) or contact us at leadership@warnercnr.colostate.edu. Applications are now being accepted through February 15th 2013, for an August 2013 program start date.

To date, the Y4SMD initiative has implemented over 50 major youth events, including a Global Youth Forum at the Rio+20 Summit in Brazil in June 2012.

 

The National Youth Forum on Green Solutions in Bangladesh, organized by ICIMOD, our Youth Forum Alumni in Bangladesh and Green Hill, aims: 

 

·         To take ICIMOD's youth initiative at national and local level and promote youth actions.

·         To promote SMD relevant education and discussions in Bangladesh among youth living in mountainous areas.

·         To share widely SMD relevant outcome of the Rio+20 Conference, UNFCCC COP18 and APGYF 2012
