CHIAROSCURO QUARTET | ASSOCIATE ARTISTS (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00
2022-12-09T20:00:00Z2022-12-09T22:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

Haydn Quartet in B flat, Op 33 No 4

Haydn Quartet in D, Op 33 No 6
Schubert Quartet in A minor, D804 Rosamunde

‘a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music’

Gramophone

Our Associate Artists have a unique sound which comes from them performing on gut strings and with historical bows.

For their latest visit, the Chiaroscuro Quartet perform two of the Op 33 set of quartets which Haydn described as written ‘in a new and special way’. It has been suggested this was a marketing pitch to subscribers. However it was also a reflection of the fact that the works are lighter and less serious than their predecessors. Schubert’s work is the only one of his 15 quartets to be performed and published in his lifetime. It is so-called because it incorporates some of the incidental music the composer wrote for the play of the same name.

Playing with gut strings is one thing; playing with such assuredness and golden musicality on them is another. Scotsman

Menopause in the Workplace - Training for Colleagues (11:00)

11:00 - 12:00
2022-12-14T11:00:00Z2022-12-14T12:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: Teams

Please use this Eventbrite link to book your place: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/menopause-in-the-workplace-training-for-colleagues-tickets-460736514317

The focus of this training is to raise awareness of Menopause in the workplace. Menopause is a phase of life. While some sail through it with barely a symptom, it isn't an easy transition for all. With the right support we can improve their experience at work and in their personal lives.

We want to help everyone feel comfortable to have open and honest conversations about menopause, never feeling that the subject is taboo or off limits.

The changing age of the UK’s workforce means that between 8 in 10 menopausal women are in work.

Research shows that the majority of women are unwilling to discuss menopause-related health problems with their line manager, or ask for the support or adjustments they may need.

It's time to make a change.

SIAH KE Workshop Series: Partnership building- challenges and opportunities for knowledge exchange (12:00)

Knowledge Exchange (KE) is becoming increasingly important for the University and the higher education sector more broadly. But what is KE and how does it intersect with scholarly practices in the Arts and Humanities?

The Southampton Institute for Arts and Humanities, in collaboration with the Centre for Higher Education Practice (CHEP), is delighted to introduce a new monthly workshop series exploring various themes around Knowledge Exchange.
 

Abstract

In this workshop, colleagues from across FAH will share their experiences of partnership building, and the challenges and opportunities it creates for academic and non-academic partners. 

CHEP In-person workshop: Opening academic skills ‘windows’ in your teaching: 3 short activities to develop students’ critical thinking in your subject area (12:00)

12:00 - 13:00
2022-12-14T12:00:00Z2022-12-14T13:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: Highfield Campus (in-person)

​Our students have diverse backgrounds and educational experiences. As a result, providing opportunities or "windows" for students to practice degree-level academic skills before assignments is useful (Wingate, 2016).

This session will demonstrate 3-5 (depending on time) fairly short critical thinking activities to integrate into your regular subject teaching. The activities draw on theory-focused reading texts (e.g. extracts from journal articles/student essay writing), rather than technical data or processes. Once students are familiar with them, these short tasks can be adapted, used as 'warmer' activities, introduced at relevant points in a session, or set as challenges for students to create themselves.

CHEP online workshop: Success on the Education Focussed Promotion Pathway (14:00)

14:00 - 15:30
2022-12-14T14:00:00Z2022-12-14T15:30:00Z
Additional Place Info: Highfield Campus, location will be emailed after booking on

​This session is aimed at Education-focussed academic staff and will explore how to succeed on the Education Promotion Pathway. During the session we'll share case studies and examples from colleagues who have been successfully promoted across different levels of the Education Promotion Pathway. You may find it useful to attend this session if you are considering applying for promotion on the ERE Education Pathway or are on the Balanced Pathway with a significant education portfolio. 

Seminar - Daniel Weinstock: Democracy and Party Political Leadership (16:00)

16:00 - 17:30
2022-12-14T16:00:00Z2022-12-14T17:30:00Z
Additional Place Info: Building 4, Room 4003

The Centre for Global Constitutionalism (at Southampton Law School) will be hosting a talk given by Daniel Weinstock (McGill) on the topic of democracy and political party leadership. Professor Weinstock is Associate Dean (Research) and Katharine A. Pearson Chair in Civil Society and Public Policy in the Faculties of Law and of Arts.

 

Professor Daniel Weinstock's research interests have spanned widely across a wide range of topics in contemporary moral and political philosophy – from the just management of ethnocultural and religious diversity in modern liberal democracies, to state policy with respect to children, families, and educational institutions. His main research interests at present have to do with the problem of health equity, and with issues of justice and inclusion as they arise in the organization of modern cities. The guiding thread of his research has been to connect philosophical and ethical argument with institutional reasoning. It is marked by the firm conviction that moral and political philosophers have paid insufficient attention to the institutional parameters that both enable and constrain the realization of normative ideals. His areas of expertise also include the politics of language and identity, democracy, citizenship, and pluralism.

Thursday 15th December 2022

Seminar - For Profit: A History of Corporations (13:00)

13:00 - 14:30
2022-12-15T13:00:00Z2022-12-15T14:30:00Z
Additional Place Info: Building 4, Room 4003

The Centre for Law and Technology at Southampton Law School is delighted to host Professor William Magnuson of Texas A&M University School of Law.

 

Professor Magnuson, an expert on the intersection of law, technology, and finance, will speak on his recently-published book, ‘For Profit: A History of Corporations’. The book explores the history of corporations from Ancient Rome to Silicon Valley, with a focus on how corporate innovation changes society and how society responds. In the Gilded Age, the Union Pacific built the transcontinental railroad, ushering in an age of economic prosperity, but also one of monopolies and corporate excess, leading to the landmark Sherman Antitrust Act.  In the early 1900s, Ford Motor Company pioneered the automobile with its enormously popular Model T, leading to an era typified by mass production and ever-cheaper consumer goods. But mass production led to new demands on workers in factories, and mounting pressure from workers led to the enactment of the National Labor Relations Act granting workers the right to organize. Magnuson will explore these themes of innovation, organization, and regulation.

 

Lunch from 13.00, seminar itself from 13.30.

Menopause in the Workplace Training for Line Managers (14:00)

Your role as a manager in supporting those experiencing menopause symptoms is crucial. Offering support to colleagues with menopausal symptoms that are impacting on their work will help you to improve your team’s morale, retain valuable skills and talent, and reduce sickness absence.

Socio-economic Inequality in Health

Additional Place Info: Online

This two-day online course aims to postgraduate researchers and analysts interested in quantitative analysis of inequity and (socio-economic and regional) inequality in health and health care. This consists of lectures and practical sessions on measurement and interpretation of inequity and inequality in health and health care.

Specifically, this course provides a gentle introduction to the concept of inequity, socio-economic inequality and inequality of opportunity in health, i.e., the “egalitarian” framework that does not necessarily indicate equality of the distribution of outcomes per se but emphasises the role of individual responsibility in defining a “fair” distribution of health in the society.

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 an entire approach to research with a specific ontology of how the social world works and the organising role of texts and language. In IE, the researcher ‘takes sides’ using a specific version of standpoint to explore how institutions work in practice rooted in peoples’ experiences. This often involves researching as, with, or alongside marginalised groups and making visible how institutions exclude or make invisible certain groups of people and experiences.

The overall aim of the workshop is to provide attendees with an opportunity to translate their own research ideas and projects into an IE research proposal and do a 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.

2023-02-12T19:30:00Z2023-02-12T21:30:00Z
Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

Riopy is a pianist and composer who wants to change the world, one note at a time.

Following a sold-out European tour which included a capacity crowd at London’s Union Chapel, RIOPY – the self-taught Franco-British pianist/composer with more than half a billion streams to his name and an album which has been at the top of the US Billboard charts for over 100 weeks – now undertakes his first UK tour.

Born in rural France, his mother left home with him when he was six months old, eventually joining a cult, where family ties were discouraged – and obedience to the head guru was paramount. Deprived of any outside culture, young Jean-Philippe taught himself to play on an abandoned piano when he was two, making up songs in his head, then performing them.

Riopy was drawn to the piano as it allowed him to focus on creating music from scratch, quiet his mind from his OCD anxieties and to retreat into his own private world. ‘I understood tones, sounds and numbers, because I’d always been counting,’ he says. ‘Playing piano was the only place I felt safe. I discovered something new every time I sat down at the piano. It was the only thing I enjoyed doing. And even if I wasn’t at the piano, I’d play music in my head to cope with stress.’

He left for the UK in his twenties and his fortunes changed when he was given a Steinway piano by Coldplay’s Chris Martin. He began to compose trailers for Hollywood films (Danish GirlShape of WaterMr. Turner…) and international advertising campaigns (Samsung, Armani, Ikea, Peugeot…). His first two albums RIOPY and Tree of Light became successes worldwide, powered by personal recommendation and word of mouth. His music has reached 450 million streams worldwide, and now he’s excited by the release of his new album (Extended) Bliss on Warner Classics.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to experience Riopy’s music live, a source for positivity, mindfulness and solace to millions around the world.

Adventurer and filmmaker, James Levelle likes to live life on the wild side, but a near death experience hurricane chasing for the BBC brought him face to face with the deadly side of climate chaos.

Despite the mainstream doom and gloom climate anxiety, James came up with a crazy idea…

Inspired by the next generation’s efforts to make their voices heard in the climate emergency, James set off from the UK on a 9000-mile race to document youth climate messages and deliver them in a film to the United Nations climate conference in Chile.

His challenge was to get there by any means possible, fossil fuel free. However, sailing midway across the Atlantic Ocean James received devastating news. The climate conference in Chile had been cancelled and moved to Madrid.

He now faced a seemingly impossible task… continue the mission to document youth climate messages in South America and find a way to deliver their voices to the UN conference in Spain.

This autumn 2022, James is setting off on a brand-new next generation championing relay race running and cycling overland and sailing the seas from Glasgow, Scotland, to Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt.

Find out if James made it to the United Nations Climate Conference in time and what he learned from thousands of people, across sixteen countries and thousands of miles from the UK to Egypt.

​Threshold Concepts represent the pivotal “eureka” moments in learning, where a person makes a leap in their understanding or ability.  According to Meyer and Land, they are “akin to a portal, opening up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something” (2003, p. 1). Crossing these thresholds can be transformative, integrative, irreversible, but also troublesome and bounded within a particular domain.  This session introduces the idea of threshold concepts, and provides strategies to identify and address these concepts in teaching and learning activities in your subject area.

Debussy arr. Sally Beamish La Mer
Moeran Piano Trio in D
Schubert Piano Trio in E flat, D929

On their Turner Sims debut, the Fidelio Trio perform music by Irish composer Ernest J Moeran, which features on their 2022 Gramophone Awards nominated release.

Sally Beamish has described arranging Debussy’s orchestral masterpiece La Mer as ‘one of the biggest challenges I’ve encountered’. Requiring her to ‘reinvent the work with the piano trio in mind…to create light and shade, and subtleties of colour.’ the result is a refreshing new insight into this popular work.

The first performance was given on the day after Christmas, 1827 at the Musikverein in Vienna. Exactly three months later, in the same hall, Schubert performed the piano part at the only public concert he ever gave. The concert was an artistic and financial success, but the event was never repeated.

Multilevel Modelling: a robust analytical method for randomised controlled trials

Additional Place Info: Online

This course will focus on the conceptual understanding of multilevel modelling and its relevance for robust analysis of evidence from randomised controlled trials, with case studies from educational and clinical trials. It will focus on ‘meaning’ and application of multilevel models instead of computations.

The course will run for three days with the first day focusing on the transition from linear regression models to multilevel models. Practical examples with simple exercises will be used to motivate the need for a more robust approach than t-tests or linear regressions in randomised controlled trials. The different sources of variability will be discussed as well as their implications on effect size.

The course will primarily be taught in R, but we would also be able to support individual exercises in STATA. This is an intermediate course that requires good understanding of the linear regression model as a prerequisite.

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

Since disbanding his eponymous trio and becoming a solo artist in 2018, Neil Cowley has introduced elements of ambient, electronic and neoclassical music into his sound, having established himself as an esteemed pianist, composer and producer.

In 2021 came Hall of Mirrors, Cowley’s magnum opus, his first solo album and the truest realisation yet of his unending love affair with the piano. Recorded in Berlin, the album featured piano arrangements filtered through a prism of production tricks, with support from Clash, Mojo and Uncut plus radio support from BBC 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio 2 and Radio 3. Returning to the stage, Neil celebrated the Hall of Mirrors release with a sold-out show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall in May 2021 and ended the year with a two-night residency at London’s Southbank Centre.

With a unique visual backdrop of vintage TV sets, Cowley inhabits his personal musical playspace on stage surrounded by keyboards and electronics, in a captivating display of artistry and showmanship.

Battery Life is released on 24th March 2023 and the Spring sees Neil tour extensively in the UK with shows in Belgium, Germany, Ireland and The Netherlands.

Battery Life is an album of abstract memories and stolen excerpts. It is my perception of the past before the detail is filled in. Blurred pictures, strange details, a feeling, a smell and above all the freedom to redefine the past at my whim. In an age where we are able to archive virtually any amount of life experience at the press of a button, it calls into question the value of a memory, both undetailed and detailed. Neil Cowley

Schubert
Piano sonata No 15 in C, D840 Reliquie
Piano sonata No 13 in A, D664
Piano sonata No 16 in A minor, D845

The second recital in Paul Lewis‘s Schubert sonata series features two works composed in Spring 1825. Schubert completed and published the D845 sonata as the Premiere grande Sonate later that year, but he abandoned the D840 sonata part way through. The unfinished work in its incomplete form was published some 30 years after Schubert’s death. Tonight’s programme closes with the sonata the 22-year-old Schubert wrote whilst on holiday in the Austrian Alps. The carefree work reflects what Schubert scholar Brian Newbould has described as the composer’s ‘wide-eyed youthful contentment’.

Much loved Yorkshire folk duo Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidow have been propelled into newfound fame. Their theme tune for hit BBC 1/HBO drama Gentleman Jack earned them global admiration, media appearances and concerts that sell out months in advance.

Belinda and Heidi’s boundless song writing is described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional’ and The Independent as ‘defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in’. From an emotionally charged song about an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, to a joyous celebration of the Leeds cycling champion Beryl Burton, they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.

They have the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle. BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson says ‘they sing together in the way families do. Normally, you only get that closeness in the voices with family bands like The Coppers or The Watersons’.

A glorious evening of defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.

Submit to the beauty and sorrow, the poetry and power, of the sitar – that plucked string instrument with the long neck, pear-shaped gourd and origins in the courts of the Maharajahs of medieval India. Marvel at the astonishing prowess of Jasdeep Singh Degun, a sitarist who is steeped in the North Indian classical tradition — indeed, in the musical traditions of the Indian subcontinent — and proudly born, raised and based in Leeds, north of England.

In May 2022, Jasdeep Singh Degun released his debut album Anomaly on Real World Records — a project showcasing an almost preternatural musicality, a way with technique, improvisation, composition and collaboration that will dazzle purists and newcomers alike. Its twelve tracks range from inspired sitar solos and duelling sitar and guitar to all stops out cinematic journeying. Music rooted in the ancient repertoire of raags, the frameworks used in the improvised performances of Indian classical music and delivered with contemporary flair.

The Life Cycle biodiversity bike ride

Kate Rawles cycled the length of South America following the spine of the Andes – the longest mountain chain in the world. Her vehicle was ‘Woody’ a bike she built herself with bamboo from the Eden Project in Cornwall.

The aim of her largely solo ‘adventure plus’ ride was to explore and champion biodiversity. What is it? Why does it matter? What is happening to it – and above all – what can we do to protect it?

Kate’s route took her through an astonishing range of landscapes and ecosystems, from the Caribbean coast to the classic high, spikey white mountains of the Peruvian Andes; from rain and cloud forests to the Atacama Desert and the Bolivian salt flats. Throughout the journey she met with those at the frontlines of nature conservation. This included a school whose entire curriculum was based on turtles; a project to save the smallest monkeys in the world; local forest champions; anti-gold, copper and lead-mining activists; an ancient, sustainable fishing fleet and a member of the Peruvian senate. Kate returned inspired, shaken and hopeful.

Join us and find out why Kate believes biodiversity loss is as important as climate change. She shows us why deep systemic change is needed to tackle these interconnected challenges to people and planet.
