The Experience of Muslims in British and French Prisons – Professor Danièle Joly

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/

According to new research there is a significant difference in the way that the British and French prison systems treat Muslim prisoners. Taking the prison experience as a microcosm of both French and British society, Professor Joly explores the issues of national identity, multiculturalism and ethnic or regligous tensions within both countries and how the state has responded to the challenges. Touching on the recent riots across France, Professor Joly raises serious concers about the ability of the French Government to respond effectively to the crisis and questions some of the fundamental assumptions about what it is to be French.

Intelligent Design or Evolution?

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/

The debate about the place of intelligent design in modern science is a controversial one with strong opinions on both sides of the argument.

You may have read recently that Professor Steve Fuller, a member of the University of Warwick's Department of Sociology, testified for the defence in the Kitzmiller et al. v. Dover Area School District case.

We invited Steve to debate some of the principles and arguments for including ID in the curriculum with Professor Jack Cohen, another Warwick University professor and an expert on biological sciences.

You can hear the debate via the page linked above – you can either listen over the web or download an MP3 to listen at your leisure.

Note that the discussion lasts for about an hour – get some coffee and a bun…

Note that there is the option to subscribe to future debates and interviews with Warwick staff.
