Courses and Workshops taking place at Conway Hall

August 2018

Magdalena Bak-Maier

Irrespective of profession, age, culture or sexuality, the journey towards embracing who we really are can be the hardest process in life, and never ends.

For over a decade, Dr Magdalena Bak-Maier has been developing and experimenting with how to connect heart and mind, body and spirit for personal empowerment. This process creates lasting transformation, effective behaviour change and even healing. Her techniques are easy to learn and implement.

September 2018

A series of Wednesday evening talks starting on 5th September running until 10th October. Featuring Dr Stacy Banwell, Dr Kevin Brown, Dr Jane Jordan, Dr Julia Laite, Dr Siobhán Hearne and Prof Roger Matthews.
Presented by Conway Hall Ethical Society and curated by Deborah Lavin.

Forced Prostitution

Forced Prostitution: Unpacking the links between globalisation, neo-liberalism and the illicit sex trade

This talk by Dr Stacy Banwell is first in the series Prostitution, Pimping and Trafficking, curated by Deborah Lavin.

From the moment syphilis appeared in Europe at the end of the 15th century and its direct connection to sex was worked out, prostitutes were blamed while male clients were viewed as hapless victims. Kevin Brown will discuss how gendered attitudes informed the health debate around syphilis from 1495-1945.

Blaming prostitutes for venereal disease in the military, the Liberal government decided on a gendered policy of incarcerating infected prostitutes, while letting their infected male clients remain free. This talk, by Dr Jane Jordan, demonstrates how the feminist Josephine Butler and her Ladies demanded a rethink.

Next year’s conference, The Playing Human, is taking shape and will take place on 27-28 September 2018.

October 2018

This short course explores women’s contribution to Humanist Photography – a mid-century style of documentary photography concerned with everyday life and people. Through discussion, presentations, and practical tasks, discover some of the female photographers who were a key part of this movement.

This talk by Professor Roger Matthews is sixth in the series Prostitution, Pimping and Trafficking, curated by Deborah Lavin.
