This January come with us on a journey to Discworld!
 
It started as a sudden strange fancy:  Polly Perks needs to join the army to find her lost brother.  Except that in Borogravia, women aren’t allowed to join the army.  A haircut, a change of clothes, and an extra pair of socks later, Polly is now Private Oliver Perks, marching off to war as part of the finest army in the world, an army with a secret.
Joined by a (reformed) vampire with a coffee habit, a troll, an igor, a Lieutenant who is more of a danger to himself than the enemy, and Sergeant Jackrum the most legendary sergeant in Borogravia. With enemy forces fast approaching, Polly and her fellow recruits are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training, and the enemy is hunting them.  Will the best man for the job be a woman?
 
Monstrous Regiment is the adaptation of the best-selling Terry Pratchett novel of the same name. A real treat for existing fans and those who are totally new to Discworld.  (A flat planet supported by four elephants standing on top of a giant turtle who swims through space going no one knows where).
Adults £13.00, Uni staff/students £11, (£10.00 concessions),  Children (up to age 16) £8.00
Wednesday only: 2FOR1 offer for students (on production of student ID)

Ambitious and macabre Terry Pratchett comedy, Monstrous Regiment, comes to the Nuffield this January The staff, alumni and community theatre company celebrate the work of one of the UKs best loved authors in this production featuring ghouls, ghastly soldiers, plot twists and turns and one jar of fingers... SUP Theatre Company are delighted to announce their latest production, a performance of Terry Pratchett’s Monstrous Regiment, at the Nuffield Theatre. Never a group to shy away from a challenge, SUP Theatre Company is taking on one of the UK’s best loved authors in a celebration of his legacy not only in the literature world, but also his many adaptations for the stage and film. The 22-character play tells the story of Polly Perks, a woman who must join the army to find her lost brother, but there’s one major problem: in the Discworld territory of Borogravia, women aren’t allowed to join up. A haircut, a change of clothes, and an extra pair of socks later, Polly is now Private Oliver Perks, marching off to war as part of the finest army in the world, an army with a secret. Joined by a cast of heroic reprobates including a (reformed) vampire with a coffee habit, a troll, an Igor, a Lieutenant who is more of a danger to himself than the enemy, Polly begins her quest. With enemy forces fast approaching, the Monstrous Regiment are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training. Will the best man for the job be a woman? Director and alumna Imogen Higgs, explains the choice of play: “It’s a completely standalone novel, and a brilliant introduction to Pratchett’s work as well as a well treat for existing fans. If you’re a complete Discworld novice you can watch and be immersed in the story without thinking that you’re missing something – it’s just a brilliant story that we hope to tell in the way Pratchett intended. There are, of course, some well-loved characters making an appearance for the fans”. Imogen continues “Terry Pratchett who was, up until J K Rowling, the UK’s bestselling author, sadly passed away last year after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He wrote over 35 books for his infamous Discworld Series. To celebrate his work SUP Theatre Company couldn’t think of a more fitting honour than to take one of his adaptations to the stage.” Staff and student tickets £11 Wednesday only: 2FOR1 offer for students (on production of student ID) Full price Adults £13.00, (£10.00 concessions), Children (up to age 16) £8.00 Group bookings: Tickets £10 for bookings of 8 or more (Not suitable for young children)

Similarly to the bite-sized workshops, these sessions begin with writing and discussion of concerns before searching out resources and practicing exercises. 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.

Delightful waltzes by Chopin precede a work by another celebrated pianist-composer, the second of Weber’s four sonatas which are the centrepiece of his piano repertoire.

Research data management: a briefing

 

 

Research data management is about good research practice. Research data comes in many forms and this lunchtime briefing will cover principles that apply to all types of data including annotations on texts, scanned images, notes and observations, pictures, sound as well as spreadsheets. The purpose of research data management is to enable researchers to create high quality research that is reliable, reproducible and retrievable. Greater emphasis is being placed on research data as an output and increasingly Governments and Funders have the expectation that data, created through research they have funded, will be made available for future research.

 

Course description

 

This briefing will provide:-

•An overview of research data management and how it links to good research practice that will have application in all disciplines;

•Highlight general principles on how to manage your research data dealing with areas including implications in your choice of software, storage locations, file formats etc;

•Outline areas that a Data Management Plan should cover including deposit, dissemination and sharing, and making reference to the University of Southampton Research Data Management Policy and other significant University funders.

 

At the end of the briefing you should be aware of the key aspects of research data management.

 

Led by

 

Research Engagement Team (Library)

 

This session is for

 

All doctoral researchers but particularly those near the beginning of their research.

Southampton Stonewall Lecture (18:00)

18:00 - 19:00

Organised by: Humanities
'Love and Perversion: The Modern History of Homophobia'
 
Why has same-sex desire often been associated with weak egos, strong drives, and narcissistic character disorders?
Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud was never hostile to homosexuality. But post-Freudian analysts clung fiercely to a homophobic consensus, even if their reasoning changed under pressure of competing with sexuality researchers like Alfred Kinsey. This lecture will explain how homophobia and psychoanalysis evolved in tandem in the course of the sexual revolution of the 20th century. It explores how clever theory and activism finally got homosexuality removed from the official list of psychiatric illnesses - while reconceiving the connections between love and perversion for everyone.
 
Dagmar Herzog is a historian of sexuality and Distinguished Professor of History and Daniel Rose Faculty Scholar at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She is the author of five books, including Sex after Fascism: Memory and Morality in Twentieth-Century Germany (2005) and Sexuality in Europe: A Twentieth-Century History (2011) as well as, most recently, Cold War Freud: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Catastrophes (2016). She is currently beginning a new project on the history of disability, entitled Unlearning Eugenics in Post-Nazi Europe.
 
The chair of the lecture will be Professor Mark Cornwall, Professor of Modern European History.
 
The Southampton Stonewall Lecture is devoted to the history of homosexuality or LGBT history and is part of an annual lecture series organised by the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Southampton. The purpose of the lecture is to educate the present about the past; to showcase thinking and research about LGBT history; and to enhance the University of Southampton’s remit of promoting sexual diversity in the regional community.
 
The lecture will be followed by a charity collection for Stonewall.
 
RSVP by 6 February 2017
This event is free however you must register to attend and receive joining instructions. To register follow the booking link.
 
There will be refreshments served before the lecture from 17:30 and the lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.

A new look at the housing consequences of union dissolution in Britain (15:00)

15:00 - 16:00
2017-02-16T15:00:00+00:002017-02-16T16:00:00+00:00
Part of the CPC Seminar Series.
 
Speaker: Rory Coulter, University of Cambridge
 
Abstract
Many studies have shown that union dissolution often has adverse short- and long-term consequences for the housing careers of men and women. However, much of this research concentrates on who exited and subsequently re-entered homeownership after separating during the late twentieth century boom in owner-occupation. As homeownership has become less accessible in recent years and a growing proportion of households now rent privately, it is becoming increasingly important to also know more about how men and women living in rental accommodation adjust their housing and living arrangements in response to partnership dissolution. In consequence, we use up-to-date and geocoded data from the initial waves of the United Kingdom Household Longitudinal Study to assess how and why the short-term housing outcomes of separation vary by gender, tenure and across Britain. This seminar will present and discuss some initial findings from this ongoing project.

Tonight our Associate Artists open with a defining work by Mozart. Composed in 1786 when his career was flourishing, K496 is the first known piano trio in which the three instrumentalists are treated as equals in contrast to simply supporting the keyboard. Schoenberg’s masterpiece Verklärte Nacht is heard in the sumptuous arrangement made by his pupil Eduard Steuermann in 1932. Schubert’s joyous Piano Trio in B flat, closes the programme. Dating from the composer’s final years and published posthumously, Robert Schumann said of it: A glance at Schubert’s trio, and all miserable human commotion vanishes, and the world shines in new splendour.

Sebastien Girardot - bass
Mozes Rosenberg - guitar

A five-star international Gypsy jazz line-up as Mozes Rosenberg – the most recent guitar genius from the Rosenberg dynasty and younger brother of Stochelo – joins violin superstar Tcha Limberger and his trio. Since picking up his first instrument the guitar, composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Tcha Limberger is one of a handful of world class musicians to have become accepted and respected in a style of music culturally not their own. Born into a renowned Belgian family of Manouche musicians, he grew up in a world of the Gypsy swing style of Django Reinhardt, and over the years he has collaborated with many of its leading performers, including the celebrated Fapy Lafertin. Put Tcha – a spectacular guitarist himself – on stage with Mozes Rosenberg and you have something close to Gypsy jazz royalty. Expect guitar mastery and swinging Reinhardt classics mixed with traditional western European Gypsy repertoire.

Journeys in Film (10:00)

2017-02-18T10:00:00+00:002017-02-18T16:00:00+00:00
Film has from its very first days been a way of relaying images of travel and escape. From early travelogues in exotic lands to fantastical visions of imaginary worlds, cinema provides an invitation to explore distant realities, as well as to see the world around us anew. This study day will delve into the importance of journeying to film, as seen in genres like the road movie, sci-fi and fantasy as well as documentary realism. It will consider the journeys taken by film itself, from financing and shooting to distribution and exhibition across global networks of festivals and film theatres. It will offer ways of understanding movies as moving pictures, demonstrating the artistry of films in producing thrilling speed and epic action or their opposite, stasis. In an age of global interaction and migration, it will also provide insight into the political and ethical issues surrounding film, both as an industry and as a way of commenting upon our contemporary lives. Speakers include: Dr Mike Hammond: “Cinema,Trains, and Sensation: Early Cinema and Thrill Rides” Dr Louis Bayman: “Easy Riders and Sightseers: Comparing US and UK Car Culture in the Cinema” Dr Corey Schultz: “Peasant-Worker Migration in 21st Century Chinese Film” Professor Lucy Mazdon: “Brief Encounters: The Railway Station on Film”

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Worried about your job? Worried about your family? Worried about yourself? Worried about the health service? Education? Climate change? World War 3? Worried about worrying? Sod it! 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. As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. - and repeated on Dave.

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. Conference website coming soon.

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.

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+

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.

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.

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.

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
