This session will provide a safe space to talk about what diversity really means for us – a safe space to talk about now our social or cultural differences or even our belief system (whether religious or non-religious) affect us on a daily basis. So keep an open mind, grab a hot drink and join in the conversation. To know more, please visit the diversity webpage.

Restoring the UK’s coastal wetlands: past, present and future (18:00)

18:00 - 19:00
2017-02-28T18:00:00+00:002017-02-28T19:00:00+00:00
Organised by: Civil Maritime & Env. Eng & Sci Unit
Nigel Pontee from CH2M will be discussing the role of coastal wetlands in coastal management and restoration techniques. Today, coastal habitats front approximately half of all sea defences in the UK and play an important role in reducing coastal flooding and erosion risks by trapping sediment and dissipating wave and tidal energy. Habitats also provide other ecosystem services such as carbon storage, water quality, fish nurseries, grazing, and recreational opportunities. Restoring coastal habitats can therefore play an important role in the management of coastal areas. This presentation will explain the risks to our remaining coastal habitats and the drivers for their protection and restoration. The presentation will focus on the most commonly used technique for coastal wetland restoration which is known as managed realignment. Examples will be drawn from the various schemes that have been undertaken around the UK over the last 26 years. These examples will be used to show the main elements of the schemes and the lessons that have been learned in their design. The gaps in scientific understanding and challenges that remain in the implementation of future schemes will be outlined.

Beethoven
- Sonata No 1 in D, Op 12 No 1
- Sonata No 3 in E flat, Op 12 No 3
- Sonata No 8 in G, Op 30 No 3
- Sonata No 6 in A, Op 30 No 1

Violinist Chloë Hanslip has been a regular visitor over many years. She and pianist Danny Driver present a complete cycle of Beethoven’s violin sonatas – a first for the artists and for Turner Sims. These 10 works re-defined the landscape for the violin and piano repertoire. Across three concerts we have the opportunity to understand them with insights from Chloë and Danny and other contributors. It promises to be a fascinating journey.

All but one of Beethoven’s ten sonatas were composed over a six-year period when the composer was in his late twenties and early thirties. Tonight’s first recital in Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver’s series features works from the first two sets of three, Op 12 and Op 30.

As part of Diversity Fortnight Student Services will be running a number of Drop In sessions looking at their Student Success project. Student Success is aimed at delivering an improved student experience for students from a range of underrepresented groups, maximising their chances of success in study and in their future careers. Following a cross university workshop last year, the project has identified three priority groups: mature students, contextual admissions students and students from a black or minority ethnic background. The team would love to hear more from students from these groups.
 
The drop in sessions will run at each university campus and will be a really informal way to hear more about the project and express any ideas you might have to enhance the student experience for underrepresented groups.

Crop Seminar Series lecture with Prof. Dr. Andrea Carminati, University of Goettingen (13:00)

I am interested in understanding the processes controlling water flow in soils and plants. My hypothesis is that the root-soil interface, where soil and plants meet, is a central region in soil-vegetation process. Although it is a small-scale process, it has significant applications for water use efficiency, agriculture, plant breeding and grass lands. My recent studies showed that the soil near roots, the rhizosphere, has particular properties that favour root water uptake from drying soils. However, the rhizosphere may ultimately turn hydrophobic after being dried. What are the consequences for root water uptake? Is this a strategy of plants to isolate roots from dry soils? Could the rhizosphere hydrophobicity affect soil moisture dynamics at larger scale (evaporation, preferential flow, etc…), as well as vegetation patterns?

Research data management: workshop

 

How will you find that piece of data or research note in two year's time. Will you still understand it? Will anyone else be able to understand it?

 

The value and importance of research data as a recognised research output in its own right is growing. Governments and Funders are now placing increased emphasis on making data freely available, especially where it underpins research assertions and when it has been publically funded. New journals are appearing that focus specifically on data, for example Geoscience Data Journal.

 

Course Description

 

This introductory workshop will provide:-

•An overview of research data management and how it links to good research practice;

•Look at general principles of how to manage your research data, and discuss the possible implications related to your choice of software, storage locations, file formats etc;

•Suggest options for depositing your data, its dissemination and sharing, and making reference to the University of Southampton Research Data Management Policy;

•Look at the benefits of establishing good research data handling skills as early as possible to you, to the wider research community, and for your future career.

 

At the end of the workshop you should be aware of the benefits of actively managing your research data.

 

Pre-requisite

 

To assist us in providing useful examples, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire in advance of the session. The link will be provided in the email booking confirmation.

Powerful, hugely moving, warm, humane, inspired, funny and gut wrenchingly honest. These are just some of the superlatives used to describe Vin Garbitt’s live performance. Vin’s career has spanned over 40 years of constant worldwide touring which must make him some kind of elder statesman of folk. His songs were inspired by the folk tradition at the beginning of his career – they still are – but have transformed into gritty social comment and life observations. An evening with the affectionately nicknamed ‘Teesside Troubadour’ is an exciting combination of his talents as a raconteur, humorist, and his unique and powerful delivery of the music he loves. Tonight is an opportunity to experience Vin’s artistry in the intimate surroundings of the Turner Sims foyer.

Come join us for a thought-provoking talk on for turning rubbish to riches. The presenter Dr Dhivya Puri (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/engineering/about/staff/dp4g10.page) is a Senior Technical Lead in Research and Development for Fiberight Ltd (http://fiberight.com/), a company hoping to change the face of waste and rubbish processing, and a visiting researcher at the University of Southampton. Dhivya has been working with the UK and US based start-up for the past 6 years and her current role involves developing and overseeing a number of R&D activities within the company.
With around 30% of UK rubbish still going to landfill and a further 10% to incineration we need to employ smarter methods for dealing with our waste to increase resource recovery, minimise pollution and reduce environmental problems caused by waste. Dhivya will discuss her work at Fiberight and how they are utilising waste as an alternative raw material for producing energy, chemicals and plastics which are traditionally derived from fossil-fuels. This talk will also look at industrial research and development in the context of the circular bio-economy and discuss the importance of scientific understanding when developing new bio-based technologies.
If you are interested in what you hear and want to get involved then there are paid work experience placements with Fiberight Ltd available and voluntary opportunities for public engagement and outreach on the circular bio-economy.

Schubert - Impromptus, D899 (Op 90)
Brahms
- Variations on a theme of Paganini (Book 1)
- 3 Intermezzi, Op 117
Schubert - Sonata No 20 in A, D959

Barry Douglas’ recital focusses on two composers with whom he has a special affinity, most notably through his acclaimed recent recordings for Chandos. Schubert is represented by the first of his two sets of impromptus and the second of the three sonatas which were composed within the space of a month, just weeks before his death at the age of 31 in 1828. Brahms’ virtuosic set of variations takes as its starting point the most famous of all themes by Paganini, one which has subsequently proved inspiration for composers from Rachmaninov and Lutoslawski to Andrew Lloyd Webber. The 3 Intermezzi are among the best-loved and most popular of Brahms’ late piano output.

Come and have a laugh about it. It’s one of the things we do best. Or is it? Was it something we did best but like everything else has now gone West. Or South. Or East. Ah - go on. Take a risk. Put on your lucky pants and your party shoes – and get yourself on a night out. Or maybe come out dressed in a binbag, top hat and clogs. We could all use a laugh.

A disease has broken out. In a cold village on the edge of nowhere the young are being infected, it’s transforming them into monstrous creatures. Villagers fearfully watch their children for symptoms. Bolek, the local scholar, makes a breakthrough in finding a cure. Few, however, are prepared for the gruesome consequences. The Monstrum is NST Youth Theatre’s studio performance for the National Theatre Connections Festival 2017. This new play is a mischievous Gothic horror in the style of Mel Brooks’ classic Young Frankenstein and looks at how young people turn in to monsters at a ‘certain age’!

SiS 2017: Language Ideologies in the Spanish-speaking world context ()

- 2017-04-01
2017-03-302017-04-01
Beliefs about language and language uses play a central role in social life. As a well-established field of inquiry, the study of language ideologies has allowed researchers from different approaches and disciplines (discourse analysis, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, social psychology, linguistic anthropology and ethnography, amongst many others) to shed light on the complex relationships between social structures and individual (linguistic) agencies. Thus, giving account of the social and institutional conditions under which speakers’ evaluations are made, factors such as language prestige, language change and maintenance, language choices, language policy or the role of language in power relations, have become central to understanding how language behaviour is shaped by such situational, institutional and indeed broader social and historical constraints. The numerous domains of Spanish language use offer us important contexts within which to reflect upon how language ideologies function, and the circumstances in which they circulate and are legitimised in the spaces where different varieties of Spanish coexist, or in multilingual and diasporic situations where Spanish, in its multiple varieties, is one of the choices available within the linguistic repertoires of speakers.

Alfredo Rodríguez - piano
Munir Hossn - bass, guitar
Michael Olivera - drums

Grammy nominated artist Alfredo Rodríguez reflects the talents of legendary jazz pianists Keith Jarrett and Thelonious Monk. Schooled in the classical conservatories of Havana, Rodríguez’s artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as it is by his Cuban and jazz roots. Tonight he performs music from Tocororo – his new album on Mack Avenue Records – where his story is represented by the national bird of Cuba. The Tocororo is a bird that if caged dies of sadness, reflecting not only the desire for liberty, but the necessity of it. Beyond that, though, is the story of everything else the bird represents: freedom, travel, and cross-pollination. In Rodríguez’s case, it represents the cross pollination of his Cuban culture with all of the cultures he has experienced throughout his musical journey

You are forever responsible for what you create. Victoria Frankenstein is a brilliant, visionary young woman born into a world not ready for her. The industrial revolution is dawning and the British Empire circles the globe. It’s an age of enlightenment, a time when old orders begin to crumble and everything seems possible. Provided of course, that you are an English-man. Women are not allowed to study medicine in England, so Victoria travels to Ingolstadt, Bavaria to fulfil her destiny and become Dr Frankenstein. Convinced that there is no magic, no god, only undiscovered science, Victoria’s experiments lead her to the very brink of human knowledge: the secret of life itself. In the dark of night, a creature is given life. There is violence, there is anger, there is fear. There will be consequences. This psychologically disturbing new version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein tells a truly great story of power and powerlessness, of fear and revenge; of the creative possibility and terrible destructive power of the human animal.

2017-04-09T19:30:00+01:002017-04-09T22:00:00+01:00
Sara Pascoe is an animal. After publishing a book exploring the evolution of the female body, Sara now considers further issues - will pornography lead to our extinction? Are humans naturally bad? How do we become better? Do we really have to die? And, gulp, should she have a baby? As always Sara is honest and unflinching as she expounds on sexuality, empathy, art, God and pubic hair. If that sounds a bit weighty, there will also be stuff about selfies, glow worms and RuPaul's Drag Race. Also, and this should be obvious, Slytherins are absolutely unwelcome. Sara’s vast amount of TV credits include: Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You? QI, Taskmaster, 8 out of 10 Cats and a load of other programmes that can’t be listed due to word count restrictions. ‘Always clever and sometimes exquisite’ Independent ‘Pascoe’s lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation’ The Guardian Twitter @sarapascoe Recommended 15+

Managing Successful Research Projects (09:30)

2017-04-21T09:30:00+01:002017-04-21T16:30:00+01:00
Effective management of one or more research projects requires foresight, planning and appropriately timed execution but it can also be tricky and time consuming. Managing your own expectations and those of your colleagues can also be challenging and it is important to have clear aims, to frequently review your progress and discuss your work. The independent nature and freedom of research requires individuals to be responsible for their own project management, progress and results; planning and managing your research effectively can make the process less stressful, more productive and will help you to finish within your allotted time.

One flower girl. Two experts. Free lessons. Six months. Duchess required. Over one hundred years after it was written, a radical new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th Century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. ‘The science of speech. That’s my profession. I can place any man within six miles. I can place him within two miles in London. Sometimes within two streets.’ Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where we can be digitally altered within seconds. Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us - how much do our voices still define who we are?

Part of són’s Reimagined : Recomposed Series
Max Richter - The Four Seasons Recomposed
Max Richter - On the Nature of Daylight
Barber - Adagio for Strings
Elgar - Sospiri
Vaughan Williams - Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus

Continuing their exploration of newly imagined and interpreted music, són present a powerful and eclectic mix of string orchestra works, including The Four Seasons Recomposed by the increasingly popular post-minimalist British composer Max Richter. Featuring soloist Thomas Gould, Seasons Recomposed premiered at London’s Barbican in 2012, and the subsequent album topped the iTunes classical chart in the UK, US and Germany. Richter’s treatment of Vivaldi’s music is fascinating and engaging: despite discarding 75% of the original material, he ‘recomposes’ with phase-shifts and loops, in keeping with his post-modernist and minimalist roots.

Alongside works by Max Richter, són extend their survey of musical remodelling with Vaughan Williams beautiful Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, as well as exploring the passionate string colours of Barber’s ever-popular Adagio and Elgar’s Sospiri – looking ahead to their next concert Elgar Unwrapped in June.

THE SONGS AND POEMS OF MOLLY DRAKE
 
A wistful mother in the 1950s makes some simple home recordings in her family sitting room. Little could she have known that decades later, her son Nick Drake would become one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever, or that more than sixty years later, the dust would be blown off her own songs.
 
With active encouragement from the Drake estate, and with the full blessing and enthusiasm of celebrated actress Gabrielle Drake (Molly’s daughter and Nick’s sister), The Unthanks revisit and reappraise Molly’s charming and bittersweet songs – works that are extraordinary enough to rank alongside those of her brilliant son.
 
The Mercury nominated mavericks of British folk music are bound to treat the challenge with the same love and diligence for their subject as they did when reinterpreting the work of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnsons. This tour of her reimagined work will be accompanied by an album release of Molly Drake’s work – Diversions Vol 4. – the latest in a growing line of intrepid projects by The Unthanks.

Multi instrumentalist Courtney Pine CBE is a British born Jazz Giant. In the 80’s he was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene when his first album charted the top 40 and since then he’s had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBO’s, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and remained at the forefront of UK jazz with a contemporary jazz style that integrates modern British sounds like drum‘n’bass and UK garage alongside soul, hip-hop and deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean.

For his latest project, he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar, whose 1992 hit single There’s Nothing Like This established a truly unique and instantly recognisable ‘signature’ sound that has since earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone. This very special project brings together two of the UK’s finest jazz and soul talents composing, recording and performing new original material together for the first time.

In 1993, three blokes from South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, with a name like a firm of solicitors, released an album of acappella songs full of social comment and (in the words of Folk Roots) harmonies you could chew.
 
They were, of course, Coope Boyes and Simpson, and the album was Funny Old World. Q Magazine named it as their Roots Album of the Year in 1994.
 
Now, twenty three years later, with a career that has encompassed at least a dozen albums, numerous tours and festival appearances, as well as a Folk Awards nomination, Coope Boyes and Simpson embark upon their Farewell Tour. Featuring music from their tenth and final studio album CODA, mainly self-penned or drawn from the tradition, Coope Boyes and Simpson return to their roots and complete the circle that started with Funny Old World.

2017-05-16T00:00:00+01:002017-05-20T00:00:00+01:00
Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. Now celebrating 27 terrifying years in the West End, Robin Herford’s gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror. A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.

The Severn Barrage in Stages -in Steel (Energy & Climate Change Lecture Series) (17:30)

17:30 - 19:00
2017-05-17T17:30:00+01:002017-05-17T19:00:00+01:00

Could the Severn Barrage be designed so that it would be economic even when part-built? - even just a single caisson of it? This would transform the prospects for financing it. The technical challenge is to make turbine which is cheap, and efficient at very low heads as well as conventional heads. The undershot water wheel, in which there is renewed interest in recent years, appears that it might meet this challenge. It would form part of an all-steel barrage - this century steel has been found to be more economic than concrete, by both the offshore oil and offshore wind industries.
Speaker:  Prof. Rod Rainey
Rod Rainey read first engineering, then maths, at Cambridge University, graduating in 1971. He also has an MSc in control theory from Imperial College London. He worked as a design engineer for Yarrow shipbuilders on the Clyde, and as a research fellow at Imperial College, before joining Atkins Oil and Gas division in 1978 where he worked until leaving in 2016 to form Rod Rainey and Associates Ltd.  He specialises in the scientific analysis of ships and offshore structures, and was responsible for the early development of the AQWA suite of computer programs, which are the world’s most widely used in this field. He has written a number of well-known scientific papers, on slender body theory, on freak waves, and on tidal barrages. He has been closely associated with the development of the Pelamis and Anaconda wave energy devices. 
He is an internationally recognised authority in the field of Hydrodynamic loading and is a visiting Professor at the University of Southampton and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2016

Philosophy Study Day: The Nature of Artworks (10:00)

2017-05-20T10:00:00+01:002017-05-20T16:00:00+01:00
Reflecting on the varied types of artworks present us with a series of puzzles and questions about their nature. Intuitively, we distinguish between art forms that have a single instance, for example paintings and carved sculpture, and repeatable art forms that have many instances, such as pieces of music and novels. But whereas singular artworks are plausibly thought of as ordinary material objects (i.e. the painted canvas) repeatable, repeatable artworks seem to transcend any single material object or any collection of them. So what kind of thing are repeatable artworks and how are they related to the ordinary material world?

Join German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn for an evening of Teutonic jolliness at its best. After his last show tackled those well-known staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else. “Forget about the Euro, Henning hits the Mark” Nottingham Post “His accent is not so much German as indescribable” Daily Mail

2017-05-31T09:30:00+01:002017-05-31T16:30:00+01:00
Effective management of one or more research projects requires foresight, planning and appropriately timed execution but it can also be tricky and time consuming. Managing your own expectations and those of your colleagues can also be challenging and it is important to have clear aims, to frequently review your progress and discuss your work. The independent nature and freedom of research requires individuals to be responsible for their own project management, progress and results; planning and managing your research effectively can make the process less stressful, more productive and will help you to finish within your allotted time.

Dazzling saris, grand Bollywood lip-sync dance numbers and queues of adoring fans – for Miss Meena this is all now a distant memory. The once famous and fabulous drag queen has lost his sparkle and like his nightclub is washed up and out of date. The punters have gone and whilst the other drag queens are strutting their high-heels elsewhere, property developers are circling like vultures waiting for Miss Meena to give up the lease to the club. With the club on its knees, a new arrival brings a glittery rainbow of hope. But just as things are starting to look up for Miss Meena, a visitor from the past makes him question everything he ever stood for.

The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn’t want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don’t, because you haven’t got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you. If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian’s exasperated and despairing meltdown. In 2013 Bridget won the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show with her show A BIC FOR HER. The show also won the 2014 South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best Comedy, the 2014 Chortle Award for Best Show and a 2014 Hospital 100 Club Award for Performance and Theatre. It won a prestigious 2014 Rose D’Or International Broadcasting Award for Best Radio Comedy. Between October 2015 and March 2016 Bridget had her own weekly column in Guardian Weekend magazine, for which she was nominated for a 2016 Glamour Magazine award. She has appeared in numerous TV and BBC Radio 4 programmes including Room 101, Have I Got News For You, Loose Ends and The Unbelievable Truth. ***** ‘The most electrifying comedy I’ve yet seen on the Fringe’ The Guardian ***** ‘It’s going to be hard to do justice to just how brilliant this show is’ Scotsman **** "As ever, Christie wears her great intelligence as lightly as can be, masterfully juggles levity and seriousness, full-blooded passion and twinkly-eyed playfulness, and is also particularly good at creating and interweaving elaborate routines that arch round to conclusions as satisfying as they are hilarious." The Daily Telegraph
