School of Advanced Study, University of London Lost and Found The School of Advanced Study, based in the University of London’s iconic Senate House in the heart of the global city of London, serves as the coordinating hub for the Being Human festival, the School’s flagship public engagement initiative. A number of activities responding to the festival’s Lost and Found theme will be hosted in Senate House, including a residency by Queerseum, a grassroots initiative campaigning for a permanent home for queer voices lost and found to history. We will also host visits from the Migration Museum, From Syria with Love, and from Ruth Barnett, one of the original passengers on the Kindertransport, the rescue effort that brought nearly 10,000 refugee Jewish children to Britain from Nazi Germany in 1938 and 1939. Our programme will also feature lunchtime talks, workshops, performances, and drop-in sessions from some of the School of Advanced Study researchers working in Senate House—from philosophical sensory experiments to 3D printing of lost classical temples.
