A MESSAGE FROM THE EDITORS…
It has been an amazing year for the alumni community and college, which you can read all aout in this edi,on of the Butler Bulle,n. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Bulle,n, and also to everyone who has helped make alumni reunions and events possible. Make sure you keep in touch to celebrate the College’s Tenth Year. I would love to say that I will see you at a reunion soon, but I’m not around this year so see you in 2017! It has been incredible being your ARA this year, especially being able to launch the 10th year. Good luck to Sally who will, I’m sure, ensure alumni events are be?er than ever.

This years’ edi,on of the Butler Bulle,n is an absolute winner. Each ar,cle highlights a diﬀerent area of college life and provides a unique insight into the college’s ac,vites. It’s been the perfect introduc,on to my new job and has made me thoroughly excited for the coming year. So enjoy the read and I’ll see you at our alumni reunions!

We saw par,cular growth in music with new groups and with our astonishingly talented Jazz Band being chosen to play for the mee,ng of the Durham County Mayors and other dignitaries. Virtually every society reported an increase in the number of members and events.
College Principal, Adrian Simpson, reviews changes over the last year The academic year 2015-16 saw us take in our tenth intake of freshers and history may show that they quickly proved to be one of the most engaged group of students we’ve ever had. It is not clear whether this was due to the wonderful work of our Freshers Reps, JCR execu,ve, staﬀ and others who supported their induc,on; their own innate sense of community or the camaraderie generated by ‘The Great Power Outage of 2015’ (when we had to spend much of the second night of Freshers’ Week in the dark before reloca,ng half of the new students across town for 24 hours). Whatever it was, the impact on the year was huge.

Volunteering has also grown with more people taking part in projects in the local community: Butler now has the third largest volunteering programme in the university and some of our students were rewarded with recogni,on for the eﬀorts in at the university-wide volunteering awards. We’ve also done more to raise money for charity, with the Our sports teams did be?er than ever, coming third in the highlight being the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ when 50 of our inter-college table in terms of points per student and students climbed the three Yorkshire peaks in a day, coming second in the annual inter-college fes,val of sport. raising over £4000 for Grace House, our college charity.

Our SCR also developed a number of new ideas this year. In par,cular, there were links with Auckland Castle and talks on art apprecia,on. We saw many new people joining us as college mentors and par,cularly mentoring as part of our summer Pre-sessional programme.

students have representa,on within the College. Earlier in the year, we piloted a new approach to encouraging our students to think about life aLer gradua,on. Built on an idea from the father of one of our freshers, we developed the ‘Meet Your Futures’ dinner bringing alumni and other representa,ves from large graduate recruiters like KPMG, PA Consul,ng and Addleshaw Goddard alongside members of our Senior Common Room. Some of the companies held workshops on job skills, but the main aim was to draw students, recent graduates and employers together in an informal seNng to talk about the world of work. Our alumni events also included two reunions. One in Durham to coincide with the spectacular Lumiere events and the other in London. The la?er featured a new idea of an aLernoon networking event which brought together alumni across quite diﬀerent genera,ons to meet and get to know each other. The alumni also played a big part in one of the most notable events of the year. Launching our year of celebra,ons for our 10th anniversary, we held a dinner which brought together senior members of the university (such as the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor), members of the local community (including the Mayor), many of our alumni (including past JCR and MCR presidents) and our current students. It included speeches from our current students reﬂec,ng on Butler as it is now and the unedifying sight of The Principal in the mole suit for the start of the evening (a challenge laid down by our JCR President for which revenge has s,ll to be extracted!) While that may have been one of the most notable events, it was not our biggest. Amongst the usual calendar of formal dinners, the fashion show, trips, concerts and theatre produc,ons, two events stood out. Working with other colleges to pool resources, we were able to get a large marquee in the wonderful surroundings of Hardwick Hall to hold our largest ever summer ball: the Alice in Wonderland theme a?racted 600 people (including two of

our senior common room who … ahem … thought it was fancy dress!). In addi,on, on the day aLer Butler Day, we held a showcase of the best of our performers with music, dance, cheerleading and theatre. This all capped a wonderful year and provided us with a plaQorm for thinking about our next ten years. In the immediate future, we have some more celebra,ng to do for the 10th anniversary, including a Boat Party on the Thames for alumni and a Cathedral Service of thanks. Longer term we have some interes,ng challenges – we are currently looking at proposals to grow by around 40% as the University nego,ates the knock on eﬀects of the decision to move all of the academic func,ons (including the colleges) from Queen’s Campus, and our Trust Board has launched its most ambi,ous fundraising campaign to build a new annex to create space for new study areas and a library. Butler has always had the reputa,on for ﬂexibility and innova,on – the has,ly chosen mo?o ‘comme je trouve’ has proved to be most appropriate – and the next ten years look to be as exci,ng and engaging for us all as the ﬁrst ten.

Tenth Year Celebrations 2015 2016 Alumni Relations Assistant, Alice Whitehouse, (JB 2012 2015) reviews the tenth year celebrations so far and talks about what is yet to come
During the course of the night Ma? Ricke?s, incoming JCR Vice-President, led the evening as the master of ceremonies. He introduced butler groups who performed throughout the night to showcase Butler talent including Butler Tigers, Troupe, Chamber Choir, AccaButler and Jazz Band. Other areas of the College were represented through speeches on sports, socie,es and commi?ees. A silent auc,on took place to raise money for the expansion of study space for students at the College. The dinner managed to raise over £1700 from silent auc,ons bids and pledges. Thank you to everyone who donated.
Launch Dinner On the 3rd of June 2016 the College’s Tenth Year was launched with a celebratory dinner a?ended by the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and members of the University Execu,ve Commi?ee amongst College staﬀ, students, alumni and community members. All guests came together to enjoy the atmosphere that has been created at Butler over the last ten years. The dinner started with a drinks recep,on and an unexpected twist when Adrian Simpson removed the mole suit head and revealed himself under it to do his welcome speech. Adrian reviewed his ,me at Butler and expressed his pride in how the College has grown over the past ten years. His willingness to wear the mole suit showed any external guests Butler’s spirit even before they had sat down for the meal in the Howlands.
Our Master of Ceremonies, Ma? Ricke?s
The dinner concluded with HaNe Pridmore, the current JCR president, speaking about her ,me at Butler. Her speech moved everyone in the room as she said ‘at Butler you will be looked aLer, but much more than that; you will be inspired to be yourself; you will be driven to achieve and inspire others and you will be surrounded by incredible and passionate people.’ The dinner encompassed the diverse and inclusive community Butler has developed over its ten years and will con,nue to develop in many years to come. I was very happy to have had a hand in the organisa,on of the dinner as it truly celebrated the start of the Tenth Year Anniversary by recognizing all that Butler has achieved in previous years.

Meet Your Future Alice Whitehouse (JB 2012 15) and Neil Crimes discuss the growth of careers and networking events this year
Ma? Ricke?s (JB 2014-2017) explained why he used the Angel Scheme: “Before having used the Angels scheme I naively overlooked how powerful having contacts in the ﬁeld of employment I wish to go into was. With opportuni es for summer internships sparse on search engines and ‘cold calling’ employers, one evening spend scouring through the Butler Angels website gave me over 5 diﬀerent graduates working and doing exactly what I want to do. Using the in-house email form, all ﬁve angel had replied within 24 hours and had extremely valuable informa on and opportuni es for exactly what I was looking for. All Angels gave me direct contacts, and made me aware of opportuni es they can oﬀer me this summer. I really cannot believe I didn’t use this scheme sooner, you would be a fool not to take advantage of such an amazing scheme.” If you are interested in being a Butler Angel please get in touch!
This year we have seen a rise in Angel engagement and student involvement in the Angel Network. During the course of the Careers Week we created a Job Hun,ng and Interview Guide that was well received by the students with useful ,ps about how to ini,ally search for jobs and how to be successful in job interviews.
Addi,onally, on Monday 7 March 2016, Josephine Butler College hosted a special ‘Meet Your Future’ Careers and Networking Dinner at which students got the chance to meet representa,ves from major interna,onal recruiters and local businesses in a casual and relaxed seNng. Before the dinner, representa,ves from KPMG and PA Consul,ng ran workshops on ‘Developing Your Personal Brand’ and ‘A Day in the Life of a Consultant’ in order to give students an insight into the professional world. These were followed by a drinks recep,on in the bar, during which students could network and meet people from a range of careers including ﬁnance, consultancy, law, teaching, venture capital, medicine, poli,cs, social work and the armed forces.
During the buﬀet-style meal in the Howlands, students were sat with several representa,ves from diﬀerent companies and careers so that they could share their ‘if I knew then what I know now’ type of stories in an informal seNng. Students loved the relaxed atmosphere, appreciated the opportunity to ask ques,ons and get a Over the course of the year there have been three Angels be?er sense of what is necessary in order to enter their events.

If there is something we excel in at Butler it is dreaming big, and that is exactly what Charity Commi?ee did over 2015-2016. This year saw the revival of popular events like Jazz and Cocktails with a new cocktail menu, alongside classic events like Dare Night, Fashion Show, Grace House Auc,on, Charity Formal and the Winter Warmer. At the end of November a group braved the cold of Edinburgh Christmas Markets to shake buckets on our ﬁrst Rag Raid in a diﬀerent country. A very successful Easter Egg raﬄe raised over £200 and 5 baskets stuﬀed full of chocolate were distributed.

Butler Netball club was another team that expanded in size, adding a third team to their ranks and con,nuing to go from strength to strength. Our combined Women’s Rugby team, Milbut, were also league and cup runners-up, cemen,ng their place as one of the powerhouses of intercollegiate Women’s Rugby.
The 2015/16 year proved to be a hugely successful one for the college, with Butler ﬁnishing 5th overall in the College Sport League Table aLer amassing 2617 points, also meaning we ﬁnished 3rd in the Points Per Student table. There have been a number of accomplishments by our clubs over the past year. Indoor Cricket successfully defended their Premiership ,tle, with ﬁrst year Richard Nicklin being the star man to bring home the trophy, while other success came from the Men’s Football club; the A team not dropping a single point in Division One and were promoted as Champions under the leadership of Cameron Wild. Not to be outdone, the Women’s Football team won the inaugural futsal tournament and were league and cup runners-up.
Men’s Novice 8 winning Durham Rega?a
2016 has been a triumphant year for the Boat Club, with the Men’s Novice 8 winning Durham Rega?a in June and the Women’s Novice 8 following them a week later with victory at York Rega?a. A huge achievement by both squads in order to mark a spectacular year for the club.
In October we once again descended on York University’s Langwith College for another packed Varsity weekend, and Mixed Lacrosse was another success story of the year, with we are looking forward to welcoming them up to Durham the club over doubling in size and having massive ﬁrst year next year!

One of these was the #ThisGirlCan campaign from Sport England, when we celebrated the achievements of our female athletes and encouraged more girls to get involved in college sport. The other notable campaign was the Rainbow Laces an,-homophobia in sport campaign, which saw hundreds of our students don a pair of rainbow coloured laces and sign an an,homophobia charter which is displayed in the bar.

The year in socie,es started as it meant to con,nue, with a record number of sign-ups at the Butler Fair. Living up to the “socie,es college” label, we saw over 150 students get involved in one or more socie,es over the course of the year. We have also con,nued to represent a diverse array of interests, ranging from hiking, to music, to Disney. We like to boast that there is something to suit everyone at Butler but, of course, everyone’s tastes are unique and we are proud that there is scope to start your own society, which students choose to do every year. This year we not only saw the forming of new socie,es but also the revival of old ones. Each has seen incredible success with engagement from all years. Added to the already vast list of Butler Socie,es was Marvel and DC society. It was fantas,c to see this immediately popular society ra,ﬁed by no less than three Freshers – proving once again that if there isn’t already a group to suit you, there can be. Marvel and DC society hosted many successful events over the course of their ﬁrst year, ranging from regular ﬁlm screenings to cinema trips and other socials. Media society is another new society, already enjoying fantas,c success with its termly trips to ITV Studios in Newcastle. Finally, Deba,ng society was revived this year by two Butlerites who apparently love to argue. It was a good year for news, so it’s no surprise that debates had a great turnout.
Societies 2015 2016 Societies Officer, Alex Naylor (JB 2013 2017), outlines activities of societies this year
Another new addi,on to socie,es at Butler was the introduc,on of society volunteering. This ranged from one Best New Society: Deba,ng Society -oﬀ Christmas workshops to weekly choir sessions all held in local schools. This was so successful that 1 in 3 events outside of Butler, including the Durham Christmas volunteers at Butler got into volunteering through a Market. A par,cular highlight was Jazz Band being asked to society. perform at an event hosted by the Mayor. Music Music at Butler has always been fun to be involved in but Commi?ee has also gone from strength to strength, and I thanks to the eﬀorts of a few individuals and all of the expect to see even greater success in the coming year.

The year ended with one of the best demonstra,ons of socie,es' achievements this year. Many socie,es were invited to perform at events over the 10th year launch weekend. Dance society and musical groups performed at the Launch Dinner, while STAB and other performers showed their talents at the Socie,es Showcase on the Sunday of Butler Weekend. The Showcase was bigger than ever this year, featuring an outdoor stage, Pimms, and vintage ice cream van. Most importantly, engagement from society members and spectators alike rounded oﬀ a fantas,c year.

I arrived at Josephine Butler in October 2015. I’d been invited to join a research programme on ‘Evidence’ at Durham’s Ins,tute of Advanced Study (IAS). Ten scholars from across the world, and from very diﬀerent disciplinary backgrounds gathered in two cohorts to work alongside each other, a?ending weekly seminars and each also giving a public lecture, hosted by their college. From my perspec,ve it was pure chance to ﬁnd myself at Butler, but I soon discovered that Butler was a keen host of IAS scholars. I was excited to meet people but the ﬁrst formal dinner was disrupted by a major power cut that, while crea,ng a great bonding experience for the new students, meant that I didn’t really get to know my hosts un,l we all turned up in fancy dress at the Halloween formal! The combina,on of con,ngency, technological disrup,on and sociability are fundamental to my own anthropological research –I felt immediately at home!
Anthropologist in residence Penny Harvey, Harvey IAS Fellow at Josephine Butler, writes about her research and time at Butler
Unlike many others at the IAS I had not travelled far to spend ,me in Durham. I am a Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester. My primary ﬁeld site is Peru. I’ve been working there since 1983 when I ﬁrst began my Ph.D. research on bilingualism. My interest at that ,me was in how rural Andean people combined the use of Spanish and Quechua. I was par,cularly interested in the everyday poli,cs of language, in the ways in which speech pa?erns carry forward histories of social diﬀerence and discrimina,on. How we speak is every bit as important as what we say when it comes to building and sustaining rela,onships with other people, and I gradually learnt to follow the complex registers of Spanish and Quechua that na,ve bilinguals used to nego,ate, side-step and reinforce the categories of race, gender and class that shaped many of their life chances. worked for a ,me on informa,on systems, primarily in the UK, but then returned to Peru and spent a couple of years More recently I have taken these interests forward by watching what it takes to build a road, and tracking how thinking more directly about the material and diﬀerent knowledges and understandings co-exist in technological infrastructures of our everyday lives. I spaces of technological development. The road in ques,on was a 700 km stretch linking the highland city of Cusco to the border with Brazil in the Amazon lowlands. In December Butler hosted my public lecture: “Evidence of the Public Good: Scep,cal Reasoning and Public Infrastructure Projects in Contemporary Peru.” It was a memorable evening for me, with a wonderful, diverse audience of anthropologists, staﬀ and students from Butler and the IAS and members of the public, including people who knew Peru well. I am sorry that the Fellowship was so soon over. However, I am now on the Advisory Board of the IAS and will be returning to Durham on a regular basis. I look forward to on-going contact with the scholarly community in Butler for many years to come.

Tweets Kristina Hagen @President08/09 10 years already – my, how time flies! After the five wonderful years I spent in Durham, honing my organizing skills first at Butler and later at DSU, I packed my bags and moved back to America, got a job with the Obama campaign in 2012, and have been working in Democratic politics ever since. I currently head up the Senate Democratic Caucus in my home state of Virginia, with the goal of electing more Democrats to our state legislature. On a personal note, fellow Butlerite Julian May and I got married in 2015 – so if you are ever passing through Virginia, give us a shout! We are always keen to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones too Retweeted by Where are they now?
Rob Drinkwater @President09/10 After leaving Butler in July 2010 I moved down to South-East London to take up a role for a year, but ended up staying for six! I’m currently working for a national social enterprise operating in the golf, health and leisure sectors, designing projects and products to get people more active. The social calendar still contains numerous sporting commitments, as well as regular catch ups with friends and fellow Butler Alumni over a beer or three. Retweeted by Where are they now?

Mel Woods @President10/11 I have the joy of working for my Church (Kerith Community, in Bracknell) developing and managing a housing project for men with a background including offending behaviour and/ or addiction. The guys live in the house for up to 2 years, during which time they engage with various support groups and work towards being able to move on and live independently. It is an absolute privilege to bring hope to these individuals and encourage them to reach their potential and live full lives in the community. Retweeted by Where are they now?
Alex Bailey @President11/12 Since leaving Durham in 2012 I have successfully ACA qualified with PwC in London, specialising in the audit and advisory of fast growth and established tech and media companies. Client highlights include a national tabloid newspaper, a country music record label in Nashville, and an augmented reality mobile phone app most recently valued at $1bn. I am also an ambassador for One Young World, a global leadership and activist program backed by the likes of Kofi Annan, Richard Branson and Bob Geldof.

The First Freshers Eve Dwyer (JB 2006 2009), reflects on being the inaugural intake of Butler Students in 2006
mud everywhere, incomplete buildings and, from my recollec,on, no mound which would become the focal point of the college. However, this college-to-be had several key a?rac,ons – including new en-suite bathrooms and kitchens for self-catering. The next ,me I visited Durham, the college had a name, Josephine Butler (a Victorian feminist and reformer). It was the college Welcome Day in 2006, we were the inaugural intake and I was moving in to a ground ﬂoor ﬂat in Milﬁeld. There were of course ini,al teething problems: over-sensi,ve ﬁre alarms, plumbing issues and a sinking mound (although I understand the subsidence con,nues). The common areas, which were at ﬁrst somewhat industrial, later became lived-in and home. Older students from other colleges, who had volunteered to transfer, became our college parents and brought with them some classic college tradi,ons – which mainly involved formals and wine. Since gradua,ng in 2009 I have been back to Durham and Butler many ,mes, ini,ally to see friends who were s,ll students and now with work as part of my ﬁrm's recruitment scheme. There are of course many college stereotypes in existence, but irrespec,ve of the accuracy of these, I ﬁnd it true to say that Butler students are dis,nguished by their mix of backgrounds, openmindedness, fairness and a sense of independence. Durham City itself has changed since I started. I was just entering my third year when the ﬁnancial crisis of 2008 hit and the face of Durham started to alter, stores began to close and the Woolworths which had provided a reliable source of cheap pick n' mix was replaced with a Tesco Metro. Returning to Durham now it is a relief to see full shop fronts and the Gates looking a li?le less shabby, though it took me a while to get over the reloca,on of “the man on the horse” statue in the centre of Market Place (which now faces the opposite direc,on) and more recently, the closure of Saddlers café!
I remember the ﬁrst ,me I saw Durham, even now I look for that bend on the track when Durham Cathedral ﬁrst comes into view. I had received an oﬀer from the '16th College' (as yet unnamed) at the University of Durham to study Anthropology and wanted to see the place that I had entered on my UCAS form. I had missed the 'oﬃcial' open day for prospec,ve students and instead came armed with a hard copy self-guided tour and my oﬀer le?er. It was also my ﬁrst, but not my last, experience of trekking up South Road aka The Hill. ALer an ini,al misdirec,on which lead me to Van Mildert (no address existed for this '16th College') I con,nued upwards to a vast building site. The college was s,ll very much under-construc,on with
In my ﬁnal year I took Mandarin Chinese evening classes and aLer gradua,ng I went on to study an MSc specialising in Chinese anthropology, poli,cs and economics at LSE and I then taught in a Chinese state school before returning to the UK. ALer taking the Law conversion course on my return I joined Addleshaw Goddard LLP and as a member of the Durham Recruitment Team, I have been lucky enough to return to Butler, taking part in the Durham Law Fair and other careers events. Despite the recent poli,cal and economic upheaval I have no doubt that Butler students will con,nue to be some of the most inclusive, diverse and driven of all Durham students.

The Bikini Line Alan O’Cain, O’Cain Butler’s Artist/ Writer in Residence during 2015 16 writes about making a cherished vision become a reality
I have been delighted this year to be in-residence at Butler (shared with St. Cuthbert’s Society). The centrepiece of the year has been a cherished project to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of a li?le-thought-about event. In 1946 a total of 167 inhabitants of Bikini Atoll in the Paciﬁc Marshall Islands were relocated by the US Government in order to carry out nuclear bomb tes,ng in the area. A series of twenty-three nuclear devices were detonated over a twelve-year period. The reef was contaminated beyond safety and only recently have a few intrepid diving companies established businesses on the atoll. The Bikinians and their descendants hope one day to be repatriated. Also in 1946 a new swimwear garment hit the fashion scene. The press was quick to make connec,ons and give a nickname to the revealing two-piece garment and its “explosive” eﬀect on the public. They named it the “bikini”.
The Artworld of Alan O’Cain: www.aoart.co.uk
Since 2008 I have been an,cipa,ng this double Anniversary and hoping to create an artwork juxtaposing some of the serious ques,ons raised, not least the topical issues of forced migra,ons and environmental regenera,on, with the colourful and (some might say) frivolous world of swimwear fashion. I wanted to maximise the opportunity for collabora,on, and to create something that would take student involvement beyond the conﬁnes of the college into a public-facing world. I decided the ideal format was “installa,on”. In March 2016 I approached Mike Hughes, Head Gardener at Durham Botanic Garden, and ﬂoated the idea. Mike immediately embraced the concept. We would set-up the installa,on in the centre of the garden, hidden tantalisingly in a shady and
Installa,on website: www.thebikiniline.com atmospheric conifer glade. The focal piece was to be a beaten-up and abandoned washing machine, slumped on a mock tropical beach, around it seventy individually designed bikinis on washing lines or strewn in the trees. A further element would be sound: the eerie noise of the washing machine s,ll running. I knew Butler had just the man: Student Support Oﬃcer Neil Crimes. Neil is a Music graduate and sonic whizz. We clawed together a modest project budget and set to work. The installa,on opened on June 16th 2016. Students from both colleges and SCR members worked magniﬁcently to help create the seventy hand-painted paper bikinis, as did pupils from Ryhope Junior School, Sunderland who happened to be visi,ng the Botanic Garden on bikini-pain,ng day. Mike and his highlyskilled staﬀ toiled heroically to wrestle the installa,on into shape and transform an unseasonably cold and damp northern English conifer clearing into a South Paciﬁc atoll. My wife Juliet created the alluring project website, concocted the poster and signage designs, ferried innumerable objects back-and-forth in the car and gave her usual invaluable input to the overall concep,on, as did Mike Hughes and Neil Crimes, with their inspired ideas and prac,cal help. Many people have asked about the meaning of the work, and whether it can be truly called art. I regard a work of art as a product of no intrinsic value designed to provoke thought. In that respect “The Bikini Line” is a work of art. But it is also garden design, and theatre. Most exci,ngly it is a “coming-together”, of people to create it, of material elements (sound, vision, texture, colour, vegeta,on) and of viewers, visitors, audience. Visually, it is orchestrated chaos, beau,ful ugliness, or as postgraduate student Emily Carson called it, “a mixture of poignancy and wit”. This duality is a stylis,c trait characterizing all of my art and so I ﬁnd the completed installa,on par,cularly pleasing. Without enlightened ini,a,ves such as having ar,sts and writers in-residence in Durham University colleges, or individuals like Mike Hughes and his staﬀ at the Botanic Garden who are willing to stop at nothing to make ambi,ous crea,ve visions a reality, or the students, SCR members, staﬀ and others happy to roll-up sleeves and get stuck in, such enjoyable, thought-provoking and life-aﬃrming crea,ve interven,ons could never happen. I give everyone my thanks, and hope for the con,nued recovery of Bikini Atoll from nuclear devasta,on and con,nued innova,on from the world of fashion bringing colour into lives and smiles onto faces.

Scholarly ac,vity has thrived in Butler over the past year. We have had a diverse series of guest talks, excellent student presenta,ons and have beneﬁ?ed from a number of excellent resident fellows who have added their own unique take to scholarly ac,vity at Butler.
