Insiders, Outsiders and Ringsiders: Immigrants and Minorities in British Boxing (18:00)

18:00 - 19:30
2022-02-01T18:00:00Z2022-02-01T19:30:00Z

Part of the Parkes Institute research seminars series.

 

Throughout its history, boxing - a sport with a worldwide appeal and profile – has been characterised by the significant involvement of ethnic minorities and immigrants. This is especially true in Britain, where illegal bareknuckle prize-fighting was transformed and codified in the nineteenth century, with gloved boxing going on to become one of the country’s most important and popular sports thereafter.

Drawing from research for his Gerda Henkel Foundation-funded project, Dr Dee’s talk will explore British boxing’s ethnic history from the late eighteenth century, when London-born Sephardic Jew Daniel Mendoza became the Champion of England, through to recent times and the successes of Amir Khan, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. It will demonstrate the considerable participation and interest in the sport amongst Jewish, Irish, Traveller, Italian, South-Asian and Black communities, amongst others, both inside and outside of the ring. However, it will also examine how and why boxing has impacted and influenced immigrant and minority identity, internal communal relations, the construction and deconstruction of ethnic and racial stereotypes and social, cultural, political and economic interactions between these groups/individuals and majority society.

Taking inspiration from their roots in the Irish and English traditions, Flook have an enviable trademark sound, weaving and spinning traditionally rooted tunes over precise acoustic grooves, with a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination. There is certainly no shortage of virtuosity amongst the members of Flook, but the unique impact of this band stems from the wholly intuitive, almost symbiotic, exchange between the various flutes, frets and skins. Twenty four years after their first gig together, Flook continue to inspire and enchant audiences of all ages. Tonight they perform material from their most recent release Ancora.

Virtuoso playing abounds … the most creative bodhran player on the planet … superb technique plus a genuine feel and some stonking tunes is a powerful recipe. MOJO

Flook are back with a bang, and better than ever – a very welcome return from one of folk’s finest bands. Irish Music Magazine

Alongside this, the workshop will encourage you to examine power structures and how they fit into your own research and policy impact work, and how to respond to this. This workshop is not intended to capture everything in this space, but it will provide a good starting point for those wishing to learn and more importantly, do, more.

 

By the end of the workshop you will

❖ Explore why understanding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is vital for policy impact

❖ Gain a better understanding of the current landscape and what this might mean for future policy making

❖ Understand and practice using some tools in accessibility and inclusion for policy impact

Introducing Institutional Ethnography: an interdisciplinary feminist approach to social research

Additional Place Info: Online

This workshop will introduce Institutional Ethnography (IE), an interdisciplinary feminist approach to social research that focuses on how texts and language organise our everyday lives.

IE is not just a methodology, but a comprehensive feminist ontology of how the social world works which advocates using a form of standpoint to explore from specific perspectives. IE research ‘takes sides’, often researching as, with, and/or for, marginalised groups who are often made invisible by, or excluded from, organisations and institutions. The focus on texts – conceptualised as replicable materials objects that carry messages – allows IE researchers to ethnographically explore the organising power of language and institutions, made material in institutional texts which act as bridges between different people and places.

The overall aim of the workshop is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of institutional ethnography as an approach and the opportunity to translate their own research ideas and projects into an IE research proposal or small piece of text-focused analysis.

This hands on workshop is suitable for students, academics, and anyone else interested in feminist methodologies, text and discourse analysis, and institutional or organisational ethnographies. No prior training in, or knowledge of, IE is required.

The Student Disability and Inclusion Team presents a series of Group Workshops which are designed for autistic students and those awaiting a diagnosis. You do not need a formal diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) to join the workshops. In this session, we explore the commonly cited idea that being autistic means a person lacks empathy or the ability to make moral judgements. We explore how empathy may be different for autistic people but it is often that autistic people are able to feel more empathy than neurotypical people. We discuss how this can impact our moral reasoning. This is part of a series of workshops designed to support students with ASC. Students may choose to attend Parts A to E, however there is no requirement to attend all sessions. This session will take place in person, at Building 37, Student Hub, Highfield campus.

Title: The Galline Urban Revolution: Are London’s Chickens Therapeutic Workers for Urban Wellbeing?

Abstract: Across London – in parks, allotments, and gardens – a new revolution is slowly gaining speed: an urban chicken revolution. These commonplace birds are perhaps not the first species that jump to mind when we think of “urban animals,” but in the last year alone over 50,000 birds were rehomed from laying farms to retirement homes in gardens and allotments in Britain. Around 5% of these chickens are rehomed in London. On first glance, the rise in urban chicken-keeping might be credited to a desire for daily fresh eggs and, while this is one factor, there is a far more complicated story weaved into this “hen fever.” The growing trend for urban chicken-keeping often starts with chickens being kept as “pets with benefits,” but these benefits extend far beyond the humble egg.

Drawing on ethnographies in community gardens, allotments, and hen rehoming sites, as well as interviews with urban chicken-keepers in London, this talk explores how chickens are shifting from food producers to therapeutic pets, supporting recovery from mental illness, and enhancing urban wellbeing. However, keeping chickens is also risky business, potentially posing biosecurity risks to urban communities, as can be seen in the recent avian influenza outbreaks. This talk explores the novel ways that chickens are being put to work as therapeutic support and urban companions, as well as domestic food producers, asking both ethical and practical questions about the more-than-human consequences of the urban chicken revolution.

Forced to cancel his 2020 tour due to the pandemic, we are thrilled to welcome English folk musician Sam Sweeney back to Turner Sims with music from his latest release Unearth Repeat.

Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former artistic director of the National Folk Youth Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and a superb instrumentalist at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music. His stunning debut album The Unfinished Violin was inspired by the history of his own violin, which Sam had discovered was originally commissioned in 1915 by a man who was subsequently killed in the Great War. Unearth Repeat marks a change of direction – the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes – and played on a violin Sam bought from the late fiddle legend Dave Swarbrick.

The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes. **** The Guardian

Sweeney’s playing is unearthly at times: the singular focus of this set and the level of its performance makes this an outstanding and deeply moving experience. ***** Songlines

…the expressiveness and, yes, sheer depth and focus of this music are so vast, I swear there are moments I’m just happy to be alive to hear this. And how the tunes bring all those images to me… celtbritfolkmusic.net

Risks are everywhere and they impact our lives in a myriad of profound ways. The COVID-19 pandemic, global climate change, financial crises, fraud, and the rapid spread of misinformation are just a few examples of the spectrum of risks that society currently faces. Hence, it is little wonder that risk now receives an increasing level of attention from researchers from across every academic field.

To harness and bring together researchers interested in risk from across the University of Southampton, Dr Ian Dawson and Dr Yaniv Hanoch from the Centre for Risk Research (https://www.southampton.ac.uk/risk/index.page) is delighted to announce the first university-wide Risk Research Workshop. Researchers from every discipline and school across the university are invited to attend the workshop, where you will have the opportunity to meet other risk researchers, showcase your work, and create new synergies and collaborations.

The workshop - currently scheduled as an in-person event for the first week in July 2022 - will enable researchers to learn about the broad range of risk research taking place at the university, network with other researchers, and learn about forthcoming funding opportunities. We anticipate that the workshop will include speed networking, presentations from external funding agencies (e.g., ESRC), and the option of presenting a poster about your research.

All staff welcome.
