vision &

articulation The Goldsmiths Graduate Festival is a celebration of postgraduate research in Goldsmiths, other UK universities and internationally. It is organised by and for postgraduate research students. The 2014 Festival will focus on ideas of vision and articulation: • How do we conceive innovative ideas? • What methods do we use to articulate, embody or perform those ideas? • What is the interface between criticism and analysis in the creation of new knowledge? • How do the materials that we work with inform, or determine, how we think, or what we can know? The fourth annual Goldsmiths Graduate Festival includes presentations and performances from students and staff showcasing the work being done at Goldsmiths, and other universities. This free interdisciplinary festival of ideas includes film screenings, music performances and installations along with a series of related, themed conferences, public lectures and conversations with leading thinkers. It will take place over two weeks, commencing 8th May 2014. This year’s theme is ‘Vision and Articulation’. The programme has been compiled by Tim Hickman, Mubeena Nowrung, Christopher O’Shaughnessy and Ama Rohatiner, four Goldsmiths PhD and MRes students, with the assistance of a publicity team comprising Danah Abdulla, Dadiow Lin and Maria Portugal, also PhD students, and invaluable advice and support from Carole Bird, Secretary of the Graduate School. Highlights from this year’s festival include a research art exhibition in the Weston Atrium called From me flows what you call time; The Gold Room/ Write-in Event, engaging with aspects of creative writing; Whispers, a live art installation; a PhD Careers Panel; and a keynote address by Dr. Derval Tubridy ‘Interdisciplinarity in research: Samuel Beckett and Performance Art’. We are also very pleased this year to have graduate students participating in the festival from other universities including University of East Anglia, University of Kent, Ramon Lull University, Barcelona and the University of Western Sydney.

Thursday 8 May From Fraud to Self-Delusion 16.00-17.00 | NAB LG01 Professor Christopher French, Associate Pro-Warden (Research Integrity) and Head of the Anomalistic Research Unit, Goldsmiths, Department of Psychology Although scientific method provides us with a powerful tool to investigate the true nature of the world around us, it is by no means perfect. Scientists are prone to the same human foibles and biases as everyone else. This talk, drawing mainly on examples from psychology and parapsychology, will discuss examples of fraudulent scientists, scientists as the victims of hoaxes, the idea of (arguably) ethically justifiable hoaxes, and some famous cases of selfdelusion in science. It will conclude with a discussion of that interesting grey area between fraud and blatant self-delusion.

Monday 12 May Radicalism and Reform in Latin America Conference 11.00-18.00 | RHB CINEMA Centre for the Study of Global Media and Democracy In this conference we focus on Latin America where the ‘pink tide’ offers many opportunities to learn about the relationship between radicalism and reform. It is surely a mixed picture. The way in which radical movements can be co-opted once they begin their work with state officials and politicians is a possibility that has been realised in at least some cases (the Workers’ party in Brazil for example). But in principle radical movements may also alter how ‘the centre’ is conceived and positioned (the Chilean students’ movement may be unfolding in this way). Social movements and their relationships to parties, NGOs and the state; the role of different forms of media facilitating mobilisations, in acting as a ‘fourth state’ and in changing ‘commonsense’; reform of government policy; and reform of state-society relations through constitution-making and the judiciary – all these aspect of radicalism and reform will be on the agenda for this conference.

‘This is not Writerly Behaviour’ • Live Write-In Event 11.30-17.00 | NAB 326 Goldsmiths, Department of English and Comparative Literature Do you find the writing process isolating? Do you wish, that for just one day at least, just to try it out, there was a place you could go and sit and work amongst other writers, where you could write, not-write, nap, workshop, present, read out loud, look out of the window, share your procrastination stories, provide and receive peer support and encouragement? Well, for one day, this dream could be yours. On Thursday, May 15th, as part of the Graduate Festival (PhD Creative Writing Collective) The Gold Room have established a 1 day live-writing event. When? Where? What? Just turn up with all your writing tools: notebooks, pens, laptops, books, blankie, flasks of coffee … and do what you would normally do in a writing day – but in the company of fellow writers. If you normally prefer to write alone, see this day as an experiment.
