Karten Lecture | Lucy S. Dawidowicz & the Beginnings of Khurbn forshung (Holocaust Studies) in the US (18:00)

18:00 - 19:30
2023-02-07T18:00:00Z2023-02-07T19:30:00Z

This free lecture is part of the Parkes Institute 22/23 Event and Seminar series.

 

Join us on Tuesday 7 February for the annual Ian and Mildred Karten Memorial Lecture, which will be taking place online via Zoom.

 

This talk will explore the contribution of Lucy S. Dawidowicz (1915-1990), a postwar American Jewish public intellectual and historian, to the field of Holocaust historiography. Witness to the vital Jewish world of pre-war Vilna and to its destruction, Dawidowicz devoted her life to bringing this world to the attention of the American public. Her The War Against the Jews: 1933–1945 (1975), a classic of “intentionalist” Holocaust historiography that emphasized the centrality of Hitler’s antisemitic ideology to the Nazis’ “Final Solution,” burnished her reputation as an authority on East European Jewry, the Holocaust, and antisemitism, preparing her to play a principal role in the construction of postwar American Holocaust consciousness. This talk will analyze her relationship to the tradition of Jewish historiography inaugurated by Simon Dubnow (1860-1941) in the late nineteenth century and continued by East European Jews before, during, and in the aftermath of the Nazi period, both in and beyond Eastern Europe. Dubnow and his disciples–including Dawidowicz–conceived of their work not only to further academic knowledge, but also to commemorate the dead and to cultivate Jewish national identity.

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.

RGS | JAMES LEVELLE: RACE FOR THE FUTURE (20:00)

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

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.

CHEP in-person workshop: Using Threshold Concepts to help students ‘get’ difficult ideas (12:00)

​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.

Norwegian artist Susanna is a creator of bold, original and enrapturing music, capable of building worlds to lose yourself in. She has collaborated with artists such as Jenny Hval and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

Susanna has long been an interpreter of other people’s works, from AC/DC to Dolly Parton, Joy Division to Henry Purcell. These interpretations sit comfortably next to her own work while never losing what made the original – and the original composer of the song – so special.

Based in Oslo, the singer/songwriter and artist formed her Susanna and the Magical Orchestra duo in 2000. She creates exquisite, minimalistic interpretations of pop songs, both mainstream and leftfield.

Tonight, Susanna joins forces with tape-wizard Stina Stjern for truly magical interpretations of Baudelaire’s poetry.

‘LGBTQ in a Time of War: The Queer History of the Russian-Ukrainian Conflict’ – Professor Dan Healey

While President Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine may seem to have little relevance to LGBTQ politics, in Putin’s own statements and decrees he has argued that one aim of the February 2022 invasion was to prevent the spread to Russia and its neighbours of ‘Western’ forms of tolerance for LGBTQ ways of life. Anti-LGBTQ campaigns in the Russian parliament and media have amplified the anti-Western sentiment that drives public support for the war against Ukrainian independence. 
The Kremlin’s official homophobia has evolved over two decades, mirroring the shape-shifting of Putin’s image and methods of rule. This lecture will explore how Putin’s use of state-backed homophobia has developed under his leadership. What are the historic roots of this homophobia which resonate with many Russian voters? 


Speaker information:
Dan Healey is Emeritus Professor of Modern Russian History at the University of Oxford. He is a historian of sexualities and genders in modern Russia and the Soviet Union. His publications include Russian Homophobia from Stalin to Sochi, (Bloomsbury, 2017), and the first full-length history of homosexuality in Russia, Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent (University of Chicago Press, 2001). He continues to study the development of LGBTQ histories and communities in the non-Russian republics of the former Soviet Union, and is currently writing a book about medicine in the Stalinist Gulag.


Stonewall Lecture
Since 2012 the annual Southampton Stonewall Lecture has explored the rich heritage that is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) history. The lecture has been given by a range of prestigious international speakers including Professors George Chauncey, Laura Doan, Dagmar Herzog, Matt Cook, and Howard Chiang. Each lecture has offered an academic approach but one also geared to a broader public audience. A key purpose is to educate contemporary audiences, academic and public, about the past while also promoting the University of Southampton’s commitment to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion. Through a greater understanding of discrimination and tolerance through the centuries, we can help to promote tolerance and inclusivity in contemporary British society.

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.

A trailblazing group in the Australian jazz scene, the trio gained a UK following after a string of celebrated albums on the NAIM label, and repeated tours to clubs around the country.

Trichotomy have a 20 year history of performing together. They have collaborated with dance companies, jazz, folk and classical artists around the world. They have toured Japan, China, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand. This is a group that thrive on the spontaneity of the trio format. They have carved out a distinctive sound, full of melodic detail and rich improvised interplay.

They bring music from new release To Vanish, blending acoustic and electronic soundscapes. The music is detailed, full of surprises, restless, curious and inventive.

GEORGIA CÉCILE (20:00)

Tipped as ‘One To Watch’ by Wonderland Magazine and Jazz FM, Georgia Cécile is at the helm of the new wave of UK jazz crossover artists.

Growing up in Glasgow, the vocalist and songwriter’s grandfather was a renowned jazz pianist, and she grew up immersed in jazz. Georgia was inspired by the likes of Nancy Wilson, Duke Ellington and Stevie Wonder. Her debut album Only The Lover Sings topped the UK Jazz and Blues charts and remained in the Top 20 for its first 16 weeks and counting. It scooped ‘Best Album’ at the 2021 Scottish Jazz Awards. Co-written and arranged with her pianist and long-time collaborator Euan Stevenson, it has featured heavily across BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, Jazz FM, BBC 6 Music and BBC Scotland.

Cécile has been championed by Gregory Porter and Jamie Cullum – she toured as the main support for Gregory Porter – opening four sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Georgia was selected to perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March 2022. At the 2022 Jazz FM Awards Georgia was crowned ‘UK Jazz Act of the Year’ and ‘Vocalist of the Year’ during a star-studded event in London.

Her voice is spectacular. Cécile and Stevenson are a songwriting pair to watch out for. Jamie Cullum

NEIL COWLEY | BATTERY LIFE TOUR (20:00)

2023-04-25T19:00:00Z2023-04-25T21:00:00Z
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’.

2023-05-10T11:00:00Z2023-05-10T12:00:00Z
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 provide 3-5 (depending on time) fairly short activities to develop your students’ argumentation and structuring skills for essay writing. The aim is provide you with frameworks for activities which you can repeatedly adapt and use, with minimal preparation, during your lectures/seminars.

By the end of this event, participants should be able to:

  • Set up 3-4 different activities which give students practice in argument and structure for essays
  • Adapt the activities to focus on different subject matter, text types, or tasks
  • Identify the value of opening “academic skills windows” for inclusive student learning

All staff are welcome to this session, however we will use theoretical texts and essay-type questions as a focus for the activities, rather than more technical reports or questions.

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.

Using Creative Research Methods

Additional Place Info: Online

This two-day course will outline creative research methods and show you how to use them appropriately throughout 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 conventional research methods and are often particularly useful when addressing more complex research questions. You will have several opportunities to try applying these methods in practice. Attention will be paid to ethical issues throughout.

The course will include plenty of practical advice and tips on using creative methods in research.

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.

By the end of this event, participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate to students what critical thinking looks like in their subject
  • Set up 3-5 different activities which require students to use and articulate critical thinking in their subject
  • Adapt the activities to focus on different subject matter or learning outcomes
  • Identify the value of opening “academic skills windows” for inclusive student learning

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.

Our Associate Artists begin their latest concert with three of the 15 fantasias that the 21 year old Purcell composed in a two-week period in 1680.

Originally written for viols, the works have become favourites for string quartets. Beethoven’s quartet, the last from his so-called ‘middle period’ is one of the shortest of the 16 he wrote. The composer dedicated to his close friend, Nikolaus Zmeskall von Domanovetz, and declared that it was intended for a small circle of connoisseurs, never to be publicly performed.

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.
