Bringing together the arts and sociology, the event will include keynote speeches by the poet George Szirtes, and Bridget Byrne, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester. This day seminar, organised by the Centre for Population Change t and funded by the Sociological Review Foundation, takes place at the University of Southampton on the 31st March 2017. Registration is free of charge and complimentary lunch and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to join us please register via the Eventbrite link.

Alfredo Rodríguez Trio (20:00)

20:00 - 23:00
2017-03-31T20:00:00+01:002017-03-31T23:00:00+01:00

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

Dr Frankenstein (00:00)

00:00 - 2017-04-08 00:00
2017-04-03T00:00:00+01:002017-04-08T00:00:00+01:00
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.

Bibliometrics: measuring the impact of research

 

Bibliometrics is an increasingly important way to measure the quality of journals, researchers and even whole departments or universities. Drawing data mainly from Web of Science, Scopus or Google Scholar these include Impact Factors, the H-index and more complex metrics from SCImago and Eigenfactor.

 

Course Description

 

This training, delivered by staff from the University Library, consists of these key strands:-

•Using metrics to decide the likely impact of publishing in specific journals;

•Metrics to track how your work is being cited.

 

What you can expect to learn:-

•A greater knowledge of some key services;

•An understanding of the importance and key principles of bibliometrics.

Two time winner of the BBC Folk Awards Singer of the Year, June Tabor rose to fame in the mid 70’s and has maintained a high profile career ever since, working with the likes of Maddy Prior and the Oyster Band amongst many others. Listed in the BBC’s 100 Jazz Legends, Iain Ballamy is one of the UK’s most widely celebrated jazz musicians and composers, enjoying an international career stretching from Scandinavia to India. Welsh pianist Huw Warren’s distinctive and enticing music has led to collaborations with Maria Pia de Vito, Mark Feldman and Erik Truffaz.

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?

With a full 90 minutes, there is much more time for collaboration and conversation about projects. Expect to write and share with others about your work. Since this is a generalist workshop, the focus is less about requirements specific to your assignments. Instead, the session will go over strategies for improving the writing process and the concept of academic writing.

Hart Lecture
Crime, Justice and the Liberalism of Fear: an Ideological Appraisal
 
 
 
Lecture details
What has it meant to be a ‘liberal’ in recent controversies about crime control? In this lecture I set out to answer his question. My argument is that a particular variant of liberal ideology – termed by Judith Shklar ‘the liberalism of fear’ – has contested the politics of criminal justice over recent decades. This variant of liberalism is an ideology of protection – shaped by memory not hope, focused on cruelty and its prevention, worried about ‘excesses of official agents at every level of government’. My purpose in the lecture - which forms part of an extended project entitled ‘In search of a better politics of crime’ – is to offer a rational reconstruction of this strand of liberal ideology. What are its central commitments? What vision of crime governance does it articulate and defend? What are its virtues, and its faults and silences? What elements of this worldview should a better politics of crime retain, discard or adapt? In the aftermath of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, when liberal ideals are contested and in retreat, this kind of ideological appraisal seems both an important and pressing task.

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.

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.

Renowned as an insightful interpreter of Russian repertoire, distinguished pianist Peter Donohoe presents a rare opportunity to hear Prokofiev’s landmark trilogy of works in a single sitting. The so-called War sonatas were written during the Second World War and premiered by a trio of legendary pianists: the composer himself, Sviastoslav Richter and Emil Gilels respectively. Tonight’s performance follows the release of Peter Donohoe’s complete cycle of Prokofiev’s sonatas on SOMM Records, all recorded at Turner Sims.

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

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)

10:00 - 16:00
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
