Southampton Arts and Humanities Public Life series with Orit Halpern (17:00)

17:00 - 18:00
2024-06-06T16:00:00Z2024-06-06T17:00:00Z

Join Orit Halpern in conversation with Ryan Bishop on neo-liberal discussions and artificial intelligence.

Orit Halpern is a Lighthouse Professor and the Chair of Digital Cultures at Technische Universität Dresden. Her research is on histories of cybernetics, design, and artificial intelligence. She is currently working on two projects. The first is a history of automating decision making and the second examines the history of experimentation at planetary scales in design, science, and engineering.

Her most recent book with Robert Mitchell (MIT Press December 2023) is titled the Smartness Mandate. It examines how we have come to believe that digital computing is essential to human survival, and how “smart” technologies and ideologies are remaking planetary futures. She is also the director of the Against Catastrophe a laboratory bridging the arts, environmental sciences, media, and the social sciences to envision non-catastrophic futures.

SIAH: Public Life (Series abstract)

Arts and Humanities have always been crucial to the idea of the 'public life': the public is valorised as the realm of collective debate and decision-making, of community and solidarity, of art and culture. Such concepts, of course, have always been contested and never more so than right now. The electronic capture of the commons, the removal of boundaries between work and home, the policing of public spaces, the onslaught of the culture wars, the hold of big data and surveillance, the spectacles of populist politics have all changed the meanings, the spaces and the limits of the public sphere.

SIAH: Public Life draws a range of leading intellectuals into conversation about what the ideal of the 'public life' can mean to Arts and Humanities researchers and disciplines in the twenty-first century.

Schubert Four Impromptus, D935

Debussy Images Book 2
Chopin Etudes Op 25

'These three cycles are by composers that distinctly have their own voice and style. Poetry and originality unite these cycles with each set becoming more nature associated – evident in the titles of the works of Debussy and Chopin. As each piece from these sets becomes shorter, they can be described as narratives by Schubert to start with and later descriptive visions of colour or scenery by Debussy and Chopin.' Alim Beisembayev

Born in Kazakhstan, Alim Beisembayev won First Prize at The Leeds International Piano Competition in September 2021. Announced as a BBC New Generation Artist 2023-25, in summer 2023, Alim made his Royal Albert Hall BBC Proms debut. He performed Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No 2 with the Sinfonia of London, conducted by John Wilson, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and recorded for BBC Television.

Schubert was a prolific composer, and despite his personal struggles, he produced a plethora of works in the late 1820s. His Impromptus were written in the same year as the Impromptus, Op 90, but were not published until 1839, more than a decade after his death. Together with the preceding set, they have become a cornerstone of the piano repertoire.

In 1911, when he was almost 50, Claude Debussy wrote to the composer Edgar Varèse, ‘I love pictures almost as much as music’. In 1905 he began three sets of compositions depicting or conveying a variety of pictures – images. Book 2 of these includes the evocative Poissons d’or (Goldfish). The work is said to be inspired by a painting of two gold-coloured fish on a small Japanese lacquer panel that Debussy owned.

During the 19th Century, the piano reigned for decades as the centre of home entertainment. To accommodate the increasing desire of the masses for proficiency at the piano, books of études were published. These musical exercises were designed to increase strength and dexterity through repetition of a single technique, such as scales. Chopin’s Études, Op 25 were hailed by Robert Schumann as ‘poems in music’. He coined for it the alternate name ‘Aeolian Harp‘ for the notes that evoke the whispers of a celestial harp.

FSS Showcase for Sustainability Research

Interested in the application of social sciences to sustainability? This event will provide a ‘shop window’ for wider engagement opportunities and the possibility of applying the wonderful skillsets within FSS to provide the balance of quantitative and qualitative contextualisation of research that is becoming more desired by UKRI and other major funders. There will be time for networking and discussions over lunch, with our ambition to develop new partnerships to coalesce around our specific UoS world leading expertise which will be on the front foot to bid for large research grants as they are launched. These partnerships would also be well placed to bid for SRI’s 24/25 Seed Funding call

Register your place HERE

Friday 14th June 11.30-13.30 (lunch provided)

This event is open to all UoS colleagues interested in the application of social sciences to sustainability, particularly those working in engineering and environmental research (notably in FEPS and FELS). We especially encourage ECRs to join.

 

Introduction

SRI and FSS, through the FSS Green and Sustainable Futures Network, have been working closely to develop links around sustainability and encourage interdisciplinarity.  FSS academics’ research is hugely applicable to all sorts of research, and the methods used have the potential to be transferable to many areas (e.g. legal frameworks, economist to value the impact of interventions, political theory, justice, social behaviour, mixed methods assessments etc).  These conceptual and methodological skillsets are becoming more desired by UKRI, particularly the balance of quantitative and qualitative contextualisation of research, and the additional of the social, economic and cultural components to a wider systems thinking approach.

 

Aim

The aim of this event is to showcase the expertise of social scientists across the FSS, how they apply  – or might apply – this expertise to sustainability issues  and the opportunities that exist for interdisciplinary work. A particular focus will be on methods, their application in current research projects and how they could be linked and transferred to a wider range of research across a broader section of the university.  There is a specific aim to link up the social science community with the engineering and environmental research (notably in FEPS and FELS) at the university.  SRI highlight the need for ‘social’ to be one of the pillars of sustainability and an increasing involvement within sustainable research across the university.  An additional objective of the showcase is to allow networking ‘open space’ for all attendees to meet members of FSS, with a particular call for ECRs to join, and discuss possible linkages and new collaborations, to be linked up ready to go when calls are released.

 

Format

Short presentations from FSS research highlighting:

 

  • Specific areas of research expertise relevant to sustainability
  • The methods and techniques involved
  • Their application to a current or recent research project
  • The potential for expanding their application to other disciplines.

     

Presenters and Topics:

Ellie Atayee-Bennett: Exploring Green Living: Faith Veganism and Diary Groups

Dr Vincenzo De Lipsis: Global warming and crop yields

Dr Yu (Jack) Gong: Blockchain's application in recycling chain

Prof Behzad Hezarkhani: Avoiding food wastage - ‘ugly’ fruit

Dr Bindi Shah: Food, Gender, Enterprise: leveraging interdisciplinarity for sustainable small-scale fisheries

Dr Bismark Singh: Selectively closing recycling centers in Bavaria: Reforming waste-management policy to reduce disparity

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

Dee Byrne is a saxophonist, composer and improviser who pushes the boundaries of jazz and experimental music.

Dee’s latest Whirlwind release Outlines features her original compositions, with plenty of space for improvisation. The music evolved from a creative experiment: introducing visual art into her composition practice. Out of this, short musical sketches emerged that stood alone as artistic statements. These short statements are ‘Outlines’ – a springboard for this dynamic ensemble to go in new, exciting directions every time.

Byrne has achieved exactly the right balance between composition and improvisation with her intelligent, inventive and often complex themes providing the perfect launch pad for her hand-picked group. Jazz Mann 

Outlines is an album of sharp edges and sudden turns, of staggered motion and harmonic twists, and yet Dee Byrne guides it all into a logical flow—a fluid output that makes its disparate parts snap into place. Best Jazz on Bandcamp July 2023

Autumn Term starts

Socio-economic and regional inequality in health - inequality measurement and survey measurement of health

Additional Place Info: Online

This three-day online course is aimed at 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 the 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 emphasizes the role of individual responsibility in defining a “fair” distribution of health in the society.

(Supervised) machine learning techniques to conduct health inequality research will be also presented in this virtual short course.

The course is being run by the National Centre for Research Methods, which is based in the Faculty of Social Sciences

Four Qualitative Methods for Understanding Diverse Lives (for academics)

Additional Place Info: Online

In this one-day online training workshop you will be introduced to four qualitative research methods to better understand diverse lives – Photo Go-Alongs, Collage, Life History Interviews and Participant Packs.

When researching social groups, researchers may focus on categories such as age, gender, sexuality and so on. These categories can turn catch-all terms into catch-all agendas.

Treating groups of people with one shared characteristic as homogenous risks a cookie-cutter approach which overlooks diverse lives and needs. Given the complexity of what it means to be a person, a one-size fits all approach to engagement cannot suffice.

The methods introduced in this training workshop are beneficial in exploring diverse lives and can be used when researching with any group.
