About this workshop: In this interactive workshop, you will gain practical knowledge on how researchers can engage policymakers and contribute to policymaking. Before the workshop you will be asked to read some information on the policy process and policymakers, including tips from a range of policy makers. Then during the workshop the trainer will share her experiences of successful researcher - policymaker collaborations and discuss effective influencing techniques. She will encourage you to share any of your own experiences with policy makers, answer your questions and give practical tips and advice to help you.

 

Note: As the workshop is designed to be interactive, we kindly ask you to keep your cameras on throughout the training session.

 

About the trainer: Dr Helen Goulding of Quercus Training is an alumnus of the University of Southampton and has been providing professional skills training to researchers for 18 years. Her career includes many years of policy making and regulation. After her PhD she started work as a Fast Stream Civil Servant in the Department of Trade and Industry (now Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy). She then worked at the Wellcome Trust (medical charity) in policy and programme management. After that she spent seven years at the Audit Commission (regulator of Local Government and Health bodies) so she has excellent understanding of how central Government policy is translated in other organisations. She returned to the Government to work in policy and R&D programme management. Her final post before setting up training business was at Ofgem, the gas and electricity regulator. She now spends most of her time training researchers at all levels, with workshops on policy making, soft skills including personal impact and negotiation, and careers.

 

By the end of the workshop you will:

♦ See the policy process through the eyes of a policy maker, understanding their tasks and the pressures they face

Pandemic times, apocalyptic temporalities and re-setting the future: using public pedagogy to explore historical and anticipatory grief

Invited Speaker: Dr Deborah Madden, University of Brighton

 

Wed, 27 October 2021

16:00 – 17:30 BST ONLINE

 

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/scmhh-seminar-pandemic-times-apocalyptic-temporalities-tickets-181907770037

 

Abstract: Covid-19 has exposed long-term inequalities and vulnerabilities, drawing attention to deeper ontological questions of ‘where we are now’, temporally in relation to the historical past, but also where we might be in the future. Exactly how people will remember this pandemic, or ‘apocalyptic’ historical conjuncture, points to our own historicity and restive ‘grief’ to shape an uncertain future. Public expressions of grief have been as much metaphorical as literal, mourning past lives, grieving lost futures. Yet simultaneously, such temporal shifts have created possibilities to envisage the pandemic as a ‘portal’ to a radically different future: here, public spaces have seen the ‘fierce rush’ of futurity as imperial monuments of the past became contested sites of struggle focused on transnational racial injustice, police brutality, the inequalities of social reproduction and irreversible environmental damage.

This paper uses the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 as a heuristic device to critically explore, via contemporary oral histories with healthcare workers and palliative care clinicians, ‘everyday’ subjective experiences and emotional responses to Covid-19, evaluating its unequal impacts, as well as its differing affective scales related to illness, dying, anticipatory grief and mourning. The paper reflects on its distinctive method of dissemination and public pedagogical purpose, expressed in a range of affective articulations, such as creative writing and theatre performance, which were required to migrate online during the UK’s lockdown. It raises key questions about uses of the historical past in the context of Brexit and pandemic populism, as well as the hermeneutics of historical inquiry when investigating the emotional registers of past and present pandemics. The paper offers a perspective on the constructivist principles of collaboration, which it sees as key to the development of a critical methodological and pedagogical tool for an activist and politically engaged history of the present.

Biography: Dr Deborah Madden is a cultural historian and Deputy Director for the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories at the University of Brighton, where she leads on the area of medical histories and the collaborative ‘Exploring Everyday Cultures of Anticipatory Grief’ project. Her forthcoming book, Victorian lives between Empires: Perspectives on Colonial Knowledge, Imperialism and British Cultural Memory, is due to be published in the Palgrave Studies in Life Writing series. She has forthcoming articles and an edited collection based on work generated by the ‘Everyday Cultures of Anticipatory Grief’ project.

2021-11-01T12:00:00Z2021-11-01T13:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: MS Teams

Dr Phil Higham (School of Psychology and a CHEP Champion) has kindly agreed to run a session following up on his recent talk at our CHEP Festival of Learning and Teaching.

“We often rely on our intuitions in educational contexts. Students have intuitions about the best way to learn and educators have intuitions about the best way to teach. Unfortunately, research shows that many of these intuitions are wrong. In other words, both students and educators suffer from metacognitive illusions.

"Metacognitive illusions can lead to serious consequences. For example, a student who has fallen for a metacognitive illusion may not see the need to study certain material prior to an exam. The result is the classic case of a student who does not perform well on an exam but does not understand where they went wrong.

"In this talk, I will outline research on several metacognitive illusions, delineate the problems they present for students and educators, and discuss ways that they might be overcome.”

This is a Centre for Higher Education (CHEP) Community workshop event

Brescianello Ouverture-Suite for strings and continuo in D

Orchestral pioneers La Serenissima and their director Adrian Chandler return to Turner Sims with a magical programme of baroque music. The dissemination of the Italian style throughout Europe during the first half of the eighteenth century was both successful and complete. Vivaldi’s concertos were extremely popular and were imitated by Italians and non-Italians alike; their popularity led to many Italian musicians emigrating north of the Alps. Brescianello settled in Stuttgart, and produced an excellent (if not prolific) collection of concertos and suites that drew on the styles of Italy, Germany, France and England. Sammartini, a Milanese oboe player settled in London where his concerti grossi enjoyed great success alongside those of Handel; his concerto for recorder is one of only a few examples to survive in addition to those by Vivaldi.

MANU DELAGO - ENVIRON ME (20:00)

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims Southampton

World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago presents his first audio-visual solo-programme Environ Me. After several years as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar, as well as the multi-award-winning music- and mountain-film Parasol Peak, the Grammy-nominated artist transforms into a one-man-orchestra.

Somewhere between ambient electronica and neoclassical music, Manu Delago’s acoustic percussion instruments are melting with electronic beats and the sound of our environment. In addition, the astonishing live visuals are bringing the sound of water, fire, animals, locomotion, wind and other surroundings into the auditorium.

For many years I’ve been living between urban London and the Tyrolean Alps, and with my new project Environ Me I wanted to create awareness for our immediate surroundings. As a musician it’s easiest to do that with sound, so I’ve done various adventurous outdoor recordings incorporating our environment and integrated them into my compositions. My previous projects Parasol Peak and Circadian were fully acoustic and included many humans. On the new album Environ Me the sound of our surroundings melts with the digital age and electronic music, with highest appraisal for nature.

Using Creative Research Methods

Additional Place Info: Online run by University of Southampton

This online course will outline creative research methods and show you how to use them appropriately at every stage of the research process.

The course assumes that you have a good working knowledge of conventional research methods, and builds on that knowledge by introducing arts-based methods, embodied methods, research using technology, multi-modal research, and transformative research frameworks such as participatory and activist research. Any or all of these techniques can be used alongside more conventional research methods and are often particularly useful when addressing more complex research questions.

You will have the opportunity to try applying some of these methods in practice, and attention will be paid to ethical issues throughout. The course will include plenty of practical advice and tips on using creative methods in research.

We are delighted to welcome South London pianist Ashley Henry with his trio. One of a new generation of musicians that have been raised with a wide range of influences, Ashley is clearly influenced by hip-hop but has his roots firmly in jazz.

Having recently embarked on world tours with Loyle Carner and Christine & The Queens, Henry has a rapidly growing international profile.

My music is a straight-up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed-up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots traced back to the 1940’s, so it’s important my music reflects that jazz narrative across different genres and generations.

Following the success of the 26-year-old’s Easter EP, the genre-blurring pianist heads to Turner Sims with music from his debut album Beautiful Vinyl Hunter.

It’s just incredible. Gilles Peterson 
A triumph in every sense. Clash Magazine

Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV 988

Published in 1741 the Goldberg Variations is one of the iconic works of classical keyboard music. Through a simple opening and thirty variations, Bach explores multiple ways of improvising on a musical theme, taking the listener on an endlessly fascinating and rewarding journey. Fresh from the release of his acclaimed Hyperion Records account of the work, which The Guardian described as ‘revelatory’, pianist Pavel Kolesnikov brings his unique interpretation of Bach’s masterpiece to Turner Sims.

Just when you think there are enough recordings of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, here comes one that makes the music sound fresh off the page… Kolesnikov’s Goldbergs are softly spoken, but they are also extraordinarily eloquent. The Guardian

Title:

Cabecitas Blancas: the (in)mobility of borders and notions of citizenship for Yucatecan migrant families 

Abstract:

In this paper, I will analyse the intersection of anti-migrant policies, institutional racism and arbitrary notions of citizenship by examining Cabecitas Blancas, a program run by the Yucatecan government to reunite families separated because of US immigration rules. A unique program in Mexico, Cabecitas Blancas helps Maya elders reunite them with their children living in the United States whom they have not seen for decades due to precarious immigration status. With this intervention, first I explore the ways in which notions of citizenship and the (in)ability to move in between borders are ongoing legacies of colonialism. Second, I examine the ways in which political changes in the US (with Trump) and Mexico (with AMLO) have impacted Cabecitas Blancas and immigration policies more broadly. Finally, I compare how the discourse about family separation has changed due to COVID-19. Countries such as Portugal have granted temporary citizenship to all migrants including undocumented people, Spain has closed its detention centres and allowed anyone (including migrants) to be able to apply for Universal Credit Income and Ireland has implemented a firewall between health services and immigration officers. These actions demonstrate how notions of citizenship are easily movable when the larger (white) population lives are in danger.

SONGS OF SPANISH EXILE & A HUM ABOUT MINE EARS

Clara Sanabras vocals
University of Southampton Voices
Harvey Brough director

The University of Southampton Voices return with vocalist Clara Sanabras to perform a selection of works from two of her albums, arranged for choir and soloist by composer and choir director Harvey Brough.

Scattered Flight: Songs of Spanish Exile is an elegy to the experience of exile, told in Catalan, Spanish and English, featuring brand new compositions, as well as traditional material referencing not only the Civil War but also the Spanish Diaspora of 1492.

More than a simple soundtrack to the play, A Hum About Mine Ears takes some of The Tempest’s ideas and themes – loss, retrieval, exile and reunion – and relates them to Sanabras’s own experiences as a modern woman and emigrant. Drawing on elements from blues and jazz to European folk, this is one of Shakespeare’s most famous works unravelled in a performance as deep, mysterious and expansive as The Tempest itself.

Introduction to Spatial Data and Using R as a GIS

Additional Place Info: Online run by University of Southampton

In this one day online course (taught over 2 mornings) we will explore how to use R to import, manage and process spatial data. We will also cover the process of making choropleth maps, as well as some basic spatial analysis. Finally, we will cover the use of loops to make multiple maps quickly and easily, one of the major benefits of using a scripting language to make maps, rather than traditional graphic point-and-click interface.

This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to use spatial data in their role. This includes government & other public sector researchers who have data with some spatial information (e.g. address, postcode, etc.) which they wish to show on a map. This course is also suitable for those who wish to have an overview of what spatial data can be used for. No previous experience of coding is required, although participants would benefit from some experience of using spatial data (e.g. Google Maps).

This course will be taught over two mornings (10:00 – 13:00, including a mid morning break) and equates to one teaching day for payment purposes.

In this interactive workshop, you will gain confidence and practical knowledge on how you can best integrate equality, diversity and inclusion values in your policy impact. You are not expected to have any prior specialist knowledge in equality, diversity and inclusion or policy impact, but a general understanding will be helpful.

During the workshop, the trainer will talk on why these values and this topic is vital for policy making and policy impact, and provide some practical examples on easy ways to ensure you’re taking these into consideration. 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

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

That album was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, This Is The Kit), who said: Lau are in touch with their roots but not bound by them.

Additional Place Info: TURNER SIMS SOUTHAMPTON

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
