Arend Hintze

At the Hintzelab we are researching the evolution of natural and artificial intelligence. We use computational modeling to understand what environments and evolutionary pressures give rise to intelligence, and how cognitive mechanisms evolved. At the same time we want to bring about Artificial Intelligence by the means of evolution. The idea is that conventional approaches in software design will ultimately be limited to our understanding of the human brain, and we simply don’t want to wait until cognitive- and neuro-science figured “it” out, but instead use the one process that already made cognitive entities: evolution!

Ari Joskowicz

Associate Professor of History, Jewish Studies and European Studies, Vanderbilt University
Ari Joskowicz is a historian of modern Jewish and European history. He is especially interested in the interplay between Jewish history and transnational minority politics since the Enlightenment. His book The Modernity of Others: Jewish Anti-Catholicism in Germany and France (Stanford University Press, 2014) explores how German and French Jews in the long nineteenth century defined their own modernity and national belonging by criticizing the anti-modern politics of the Catholic Church. The book was a finalist for the Jordan Schnitzer Book Award (2015). His articles emerging from his interest in questions of religious polemics and secularism include: “Liberal Judaism and Confessional Politics of Difference in the German Kulturkampf” in the Leo Baeck Institute Yearbook (2005), “Heinrich Heine’s Transparent Masks: Denominational Politics and the Poetics of Emancipation in Nineteenth-Century Germany and France,” in the German Studies Review (2011), “The Priest, the Woman, and the Jewish Family: Gender and Conversion Fears in 1840s France,” in the Jewish Quarterly Review (2011), “Jewish Anticlericalism and the Making of Modern Jewish Politics in Late Enlightenment Prussia and France,” in Jewish Social Studies (2011), and “Selma the Jewish Seer: Female Prophecy and Bourgeois Religion in Nineteenth-Century Germany” in the Journal of Modern Jewish Studies (2014). He is also the co-editor of Secularism in Question: Jews and Judaism in Modern Times (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2015).

His new book, Rain of Ash: Roma, Jews, and the Holocaust (Princeton University Press, 2023) traces the unlikely entanglement of the histories of Jews and Romanies throughout the twentieth century, focusing on Western and Central Europe as well as the United States and Israel. The aim of this project is twofold: First, he explores the encounters between Jews and Romanies in various camps and killing fields during the Holocaust. Second, he seeks to understand how survivors and historians have spoken about Romani and Jewish suffering during the Second World War in relational terms and to explore the paradoxes that arise when victims of related persecution tell stories next to, and after, each other. Several articles develop themes from this project: “Romani Refugees and the Postwar Order” (Journal of Contemporary History, 2016), “Separate Suffering, Shared Archives: Jewish and Romani Histories of Nazi Persecution” (History & Memory, 2016), and “The Age of the Witness and the Age of Surveillance: Romani Holocaust Testimony and the Perils of Digital Scholarship” (American Historical Review, 2020).

His interest in the history of European minorities is also reflected in various other scholarly projects. He contributed to two EU studies on racism and antisemitism in contemporary Europe and translated G. C. Spivak’s essay “Can the Subaltern Speak?” into German together with Stefan Nowotny (Vienna, 2007). His work has been supported, among others by the Rosenzweig Minerva Research Center (Hebrew University, Jerusalem), the Lady Davis Fellowship Trust, the Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, the American Philosophical Society, the American Society of Learned Societies (ACLS), the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies, the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

At Vanderbilt, Professor Joskowicz teaches courses in modern European and Jewish history, including “The Holocaust,” “The Idea of Europe,” “Religion and Politics in Modern Europe,” “Perspectives on Modern Jewish History,” and “Conspiracy Theories and Rumors.”

Ariell Ahearn

Departmental Lecturer in Human Geography, University of Oxford
Prior to becoming Departmental Lecturer in Human Geography, Ariell was the Course Director of the MSc/MPhil in Nature, Society and Environmental Governance and before that an ESRC-GCRF postdoctoral fellow at the School for Geography and the Environment on an independent project called Managing Development and Infrastructure: Understanding State Engagements with Rural Communities in Mongolia. She completed her DPhil from the School for Geography in February 2016. She holds a BA degree in Anthropology from Hartwick College and an MPA from Cornell University in the United States.

Since 2004, Ariell has worked extensively in rural Mongolia with mobile pastoralist communities around land use and rural development issues. She started her research in 2004 studying the guest house and international traveller culture in Ulaanbaatar. From 2006-2007 she held a US Fulbright Fellowship in Mongolia to study international development discourse related to herder livelihoods. Her DPhil work from 2012-2016 consisted of an ethnography focused on the governance of pastoralism and changing forms of work in rural Mongolia.

In 2016 she engaged as an expert on a multi-disciplinary team to conduct a qualitative analysis of herder livelihoods and socio-economic changes related to the Oyu Tolgoi mega mine complex in the South Gobi Desert. From this work, Ariell's research focus has become concerned with understanding the impacts of mines and infrastructure investment (particularly Belt and Road Projects) in rural Mongolia, Central and South Asia (mostly Kyrgyzstan and Pakistan) and implications for politics and formations of the state in this region.

Ariell's current research aims to understand the relationship between social systems, resource distribution and governance frameworks in regions undergoing economic transformation. She specializes in qualitative, participatory research, using methods such as ethnographic participant observation, interviewing, mapping and immersive field work to document and analyse the conditions that inform human decision-making and organization.

Arin Keeble

Arin Keeble's research focuses on the way contemporary literature and culture represents and responds to terrorism, crisis and disaster. Under this umbrella he is working in three distinct areas: the '9/11 novel', narratives of Hurricane Katrina and contemporary American television (particularly David Simon and TV audiences in the UK). He currently has significant projects underway in each of these areas.

The '9/11 Novel' – Dr Keeble's work in this area has sought to move beyond a polarised critical paradigm that has pitted domestic narratives of trauma in opposition to more outwardly facing political narratives. This was the subject of Dr Keeble's doctoral research, and he has published three peer reviewed articles in Modern Language Review, Reconstruction and European Journal of American Culture in this area. Additionally, his monograph, The 9/11 Novel: Trauma, Politics and Identity was published by McFarland in 2014. His most current work in this area is an article on Thomas Pynchon's Bleeding Edge (2013) entitled 'Before and After in Bleeding Edge', which is under review.

Narratives of Hurricane Katrina – Dr Keeble's work on Katrina focusses on the ways in which literary, cinematic and televisual narratives of Katrina respond not just to the Katrina crisis, but also to the politics of the War on Terror, and to the perceived apolitical nature of many early narratives of 9/11. Dr Keeble's first publication in this area was 'The Aggregation of Politics in Dave Eggers Zeitoun' which appeared in the peer reviewed Journal of Comparative American Studies (13.3). Dr Keeble has also guest edited a special issue of European Journal of American Cultures which comes out later this year, and includes his article on David Simon's television series Treme (2009-2013) 'Won't Bow, Don't Know How: Treme, and New Orleans Exceptionalism'. Additionally Dr Keeble is working on a new monograph on Katrina narratives which will appear in 2017.

American Television – Dr Keeble's first published work in this area was a co-edited collection of essays with Dr Ivan Stacy (Hong Kong Baptist University) on David Simon's The Wire (2002-2008) which appeared in 2015, The Wire and America's Dark Corners: Critical Essays. Dr Stacy and Dr Keeble have continued to collaborate on the subject of David Simon's television; their co-guest edited special issue of European Journal of American Cultures features eight new essays on Simon. Dr Keeble's interest in US television extends to the way it is received by UK audiences and he is developing an audience studies partnership project with a colleague at Durham University and two major UK cultural cinemas.

Arjun Guneratne

Professor of Anthropology, Macalester College
Arjun Guneratne is Professor of Anthropology at Macalester College. He was born in Sri Lanka and studied law for a year at the University of Colombo, before enrolling at Dartmouth College to study anthropology. He developed a keen interest in development problems while a student at Dartmouth, and spent his senior year in Dartmouth’s Senior Fellows program where, excused from completing his anthropology major, he could devote his time and energy to studying development problems in Sri Lanka’s peasant resettlement projects. This work resulted in a thesis, Water, Rice and People: Problems and Constraints of Peasant Colonization in the Dry Zone of Sri Lanka.

After Dartmouth, he entered the PhD program in anthropology at the University of Chicago, intending to continue his interest in development. However, ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka between the Sinhala-dominated state and Tamil separatist rebels kindled an interest in how ethnic identities emerge. He pursued this interest in Nepal, a country where the literature about ethnicity suggested it was a fluid process rather than a fixed identity derived from the past. He focused on the Tarai, the narrow strip of once malarial land abutting the mountains; not many foreign scholars had worked there and the main ethnic group inhabiting the region, the Tharu, had been little described. His dissertation was a study of the development of ethnic consciousness among the Tharu of Nepal and its relation to class stratification, processes of state building and the cultural and socio-economic transformation of the Tarai that followed on the success of the Malaria Eradication Program in Nepal. The dissertation became the basis of his first book, Many Tongues, One People: The Making of Tharu identity in Nepal (Cornell 2002).

Zimbabwe's economy is agro-based and agriculture and its related businesses are the highest employers. Ironically Zimbabwe has the highest rate of unemployment in Southern Africa and most of them are youths who have attained some form of tertiary education. I strongly believe that youth engagement through such forums and conferences can help developing countries like Zimbabwe to reduce unemployment to 'acceptable' levels and in the long-run reduce extreme poverty and hunger.
