School of Political Science & Sociology Seminar Series: Agitating for political rights: local and visiting suffragists of the West of Ireland

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Room 333, Aras Moyola,

By Mary Clancy (Global Women's Studies) At a time of heightened international debate about democratic and social change during the early decades of the twentieth century, the place of the woman citizen remained contentious. The demand to extend the parliamentary franchise to qualified women, debated in Westminster, for instance, since the mid-19th century, was politically and socially divisive despite the democratic inevitability of its objective. Argument in favour of Irish Home Rule (especially from 1886) complicated the politics of the suffrage…

POSTPONED – School of Political Science & Sociology Seminar Series: Deliberative mini-publics in the democratic system

March 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Room 333, Aras Moyola,

by Jane Suiter (Dublin City University) Democracy is more than deliberation and deliberative mini-publics  do not make a democracy. Yet mini-publics are proliferating not just in Ireland but in Scotland, Belgium, France and elsewhere. This paper uses the example of the Irish Constitutional Convention and Citizens’ Assembly to ask  how mini-publics  can  be located within a broader democratic system and  looks at (potential) linkages of mini-publics with other democratic practices and actors such as voting, referendums, parliaments, political parties, social…

March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Room 333, Aras Moyola,

by Allyn Fives (Power, Conflict and Ideologies) This paper addresses two key aspects of A. John Simmons’s philosophical anarchism. First, as a value pluralist, he maintains that obligations are not conclusive reasons for action, whereas overridden obligations are nonetheless genuine obligations. As a result, we can be faced with genuine moral conflicts concerning our political obligations. Second, according to his anarchist position on the grounds of political obligation, citizens have obligations only when they have voluntarily entered into cooperative arrangements…
