As the society becomes larger, our aim is to use university funding to attract guest speakers, writers and publishers to do workshops and talks. Also, we are looking to organize putting out some form of showcase publications, for anyone who is particularly serious, by building links with The Mancunion and Black & Blue along with various other organizations.

The next EAC Research Seminar will feature a paper by Dr Ben Ware, a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the SALC at Manchester, who will present work in progress from his current book project, prospectively entitled Modernism and the Ethical Turn.
"Seeing the Everyday Otherwise: Vision, Ethics and Utopia in Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations"
Weds 17 October | Samuel Alexander A113 | 5pm
The paper will focus on Part II, section xi of Philosophical Investigations in which Wittgenstein discusses Jastrow's 'duck-rabbit' figure. The two main questions it will explore are the following: First, to what extent can Wittgenstein's interest in seeing - and, more specifically, what he terms 'seeing-as' or 'the "dawning" of an aspect' - be understood as having an ethical point? And second, how might the ethicality of the Investigations be connected with the work's modernist sensibility, especially with its repeated efforts to bring us to see the everyday otherwise?
Dr Daniela Caselli will chair the seminar. Staff and postgraduates from across the School are very welcome indeed; any enquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
