Nicolai Stammeier (Münster) will give a talk with title "Aiming for accuracy - boundary quotients of right LCM semigroups revisited "
Abstract: I will recall the notions of foundation sets and the boundary quotient for right LCM semigroups. This C*-algebra is obtained by modding out products of defect projections over foundation sets in the full semigroup C*-algebra of the right LCM semigroup. Observing that this is in stark contrast to the standard presentations of C*-algebras in the spirit of Cuntz algebras, where a summation relation gets used, we will discuss the possibility of replacing the product relation by a summation relation and arrive at the accurate refinement property. This feature turns out to be quite common among right LCM semigroups. In fact, we are yet to see an example of a right LCM semigroup that has an insufficient supply of accurate foundation sets. Time permitting, we will leave the realm of right LCM semigroups for the sake of finding semigroups without the accurate refinement property.

During the Suharto era, the official trade union was strictly prohibited from engaging with political parties and all but one of the ‘alternative’ unions publically rejected political unionism, preferring instead to seek recognition as a socio-economic force. Today, trade unions’ efforts to engage in electoral politics are tremendously significant for Indonesia’s emerging democracy.

Srila Roy and Alf G. Nilsen’s new edited volume “New Subaltern Politics” presents a critical dialogue between the conceptual and analytical legacies of Subaltern Studies and the evolving forms of hegemony and resistance in contemporary India. From the struggles of the urban poor in Gujarat to the activism of sexual subalterns in eastern India and the mobilization of artisanal fishing communities in Tamil Nadu, the essays cover a diverse range of ongoing struggles against dispossession, disenfranchisement, and stigma that are unfolding in neoliberal India.
