Highlights: Dean’s Seminars 18 January 2013 18:00–20:00 Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies University Trust Fund reading Court Room

Changing models of motherhood: a reading by Valeria Parrella and Karine Reysset An author reading associated with the AHRC-funded project Motherhood in Post-1968 European Literature Network, based at the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies. Two authors, from Italy and France respectively, will read passages from their work relevant to the theme. Those texts not already published in English will be specially translated for the event. Valeria Parrella is one of Italy’s most prominent young writers, and has been awarded many prizes, including the Premio Campiello Opera Prima for 2004. Her 2008 novel Lo spazio bianco (focusing on motherhood) was adapted into a successful film, directed by Francesca Comencini (2009). Karine Reysset is an emerging young French novelist whose work explores alternative yet realistic versions of motherhood in which experiences of mothering do not conform to those expected by narrators, protagonists - and readers.

Dean’s Seminars The Dean’s Seminars, chaired by the Dean of the School, are a series of lunchtime research seminars, which aim to promote cross-disciplinary debate in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Ruth First: a revolutionary life - exhibition Anti-apartheid activist Ruth First dedicated her life to “the liberation of Africa for I count myself an African, and there is no cause I hold dearer”. She was passionate about achieving justice in South Africa, but her perspective was international. First saw activism, solidarity work, research and writing as essential activities for a revolutionary. She was assassinated in 1982 by a letter bomb sent by the South African secret service. The Institute of Commonwealth Studies is digitising this extraordinary woman’s papers. This exhibition of Ruth First’s papers, photographs and archival material at Senate House offers an introduction to both First herself and her important works, which retain their relevance, especially in the light of recent democracy movements across northern Africa and beyond. This exhibition also offers a tour of the Ruth First Papers archive, a new digital resource which aims to bring her works to a wider audience. A series of talks about the project will be given on the Sunday. See listings below for further information. www.ruthfirstpapers.org.uk

Some tales of one city: Charles Dickens and London Alex Werner Michael Allen: ‘Dickens’s early life’; Nicholas Waloff: ‘Dickens’s servants’; Ruth Richardson: ‘Oliver Twist workhouse’ This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens. Arguably the greatest writer of the Victorian era, Dickens’s works remain as popular today as they were in his lifetime. At the heart of most of his work is the Great Wen London, in all its guises. In celebration of the bicentenary, Archives for London, the Dickens House Museum and the Centre for Metropolitan History are holding a one-day conference which will explore Dickens’s relationship with London and the ways in which life in the capital influenced and shaped his life, his work and his social conscience. Covering many aspects of Dickens’s life, including his childhood, his relationship with the Poor Law, his domestic life and the role that London played in firing his imagination, this event draws on primary archive sources, as it seeks to shed light on the effect living in London had on Dickens and his work, and its enduring place in the imaginations of those who are captivated by the world of Charles Dickens.

12 October 2012 09:30–18:00 Institute of English Studies Conference / Symposium Senate House

Brave New World and its legacies When Brave New World first appeared in 1932 it caused a sensation. It was obvious that Aldous Huxley was intent on testing the boundaries of propriety (sailing especially close to the wind in terms of sexual and religious obscenity), but what kind of novel had he published? A satire, like his earlier novels; a horrified warning of things to come, or a vision of how things might be, for better or for worse, following a number of scientific, political and social adjustments to the Britain of his day? While the novel’s title has become embedded in the English language as a catchword for anything that is far-fetched, faddish, futuristic or forbidding, the possible meanings of Brave New World have only proliferated over the past eighty years and its relevance to our own world has only increased with time. Certainly, the novel’s significance for our own concerns with eugenics, globalisation, dystopias, urbanisation, population issues, technological innovation, authoritarianism, anarchism, educational theory, mass society, liberty, control, Americanisation, constructions of culture, and the ongoing crisis of capitalism, could not be more obvious.

Dickens Day 2012: Dickens and popular culture Dickens Day, now in its 26th year, is celebrating 2012 with a theme that explores Dickens’s popularity and his engagement with non-elite cultures from his own time to the present. On the evidence of bicentenary Dickens fervour, the author is as popular now as he has ever been. This year has been punctuated by Dickens serial on TV, heartfelt tributes from popular writers, mass-selling biography, collective reading projects, Dickens hip-hop performances, and a global reada-thon. How can we account for this continuing engagement, across different genres and various cultural contexts? What is it that allows Dickens’s work its particular “portability” (to use Juliet John’s term)? And what are the political and personal investments in forms of Dickensian popularity? How does this relate to Dickens’s own aspirations, and to the forms in which his work first appeared? These are some of the questions that the day seeks to address. Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk

26–27 October 2012 10:00–19:00 Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies Conference / Symposium Room 349

Saperi, emblemi e simboli tra Bologna e l’Europa nel Rinascimento While the literary and artistic culture of a handful of Italian cities during the Renaissance has received sustained scholarly attention (esp. Florence, Venice, Rome, Mantua and Ferrara), Bologna and its uniquely erudite culture remains little known and relatively unexplored. Renaissance Bologna, ruled by the Bentivoglio family, was a traditional cross-road of cultures and civilizations, as well as the seat of the authoritative Studio. As such, it experienced a unique set of cultural convergences, attracting European scholars, scientists and artists. This two-day conference will explore, in particular, the key role played in this period by myth and literature (Alciato, Bocchi, Beroaldo), art and architecture (Primaticcio) and the intellectual and academic centres (Accademie and the University) in establishing the character of a truly international city.

Specifically, we seek to bring together postgraduate students, early career academics and established researchers working in the fields of literature, cultural studies and elsewhere in the humanities, to explore why mainstream culture and objects of mass appeal are so frequently marginalised by the academic community. www.ies.sas.ac.uk/events/ies-conferences/marginalisedmainstream Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk

Il friulano e i suoi contesti Speakers will include: Paola Beninc (Padua), William Cisilino (ARLeF - Regional Agency for the Promotion of Friulian), Franco Finco (Udine), Javier Grossutti (Udine), Carla Marcato (Udine), Rosa Mucignat (London), Rienzo Pellegrini (Trieste), Olga Pugliese (Toronto), Fulvio Salimbeni (Udine) Co-ordinators: Laura Lepschy and Katia Pizzi (London) This interdisciplinary conference will explore the history, language, literature and culture of Friuli. The geographic position of this region, between the Adriatic sea, Austria and Slovenia, makes it a crossroads of civilizations and cultures. The focus of the conference will be on the Friulian language, which has recently received official status in Italy and in Europe and is widely taught in local schools. Friulian offers an interesting case study to investigate the effect of language policies on usage, and the challenges that they pose, especially in the context of today’s multicultural and multilingual Europe. Particular attention will be given to the experiences of different generations of migrants from Friuli who have moved to Great Britain and North America (often being responsible for mosaic work in these countries), and their shifting relationship with their Friulian identity and their language.

Recasting commodity and spectacle in the indigenous Americas Michelle Raheja (USA) and Gabriela Zamorano Villareal (Mexico) Indigenous statements of authority and authorship through the arts frequently demonstrate concerns over the commodification of Native cultures, acutely felt by many practitioners who live with the consequences of (neo)colonialist appropriation. In the context of the circulation of contemporary indigenous performance at local, regional, national, and global levels, this two-day symposium proposes to examine how artists and communities negotiate and challenge the commodification, exoticisation and spectacularisation of indigeneity, making reference to aesthetic forms, performative rhetorics, intertextuality, intellectual property, and political agency.

The British monarchy on screen Co-sponsored by the departments of the History of Art and Film, Birkbeck; Media Arts, Royal Holloway; the University of London Screen Studies Group; and the Institute of English Studies. With Madonna’s W.E on the Wallis Simpson-Edward VIII romance attempting to exploit the Oscar-winning success of The King’s Speech and The Queen, and a film drama on Diana’s romance with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan in production, this Diamond Jubilee year seems the appropriate time to consider the historic past and current effusion of film and television representations of the British monarchy. www.ies.sas.ac.uk/events/ies-conferences/screenstudiesgroup/monarchy Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk

Wyndham Lewis: networks, dialogues and communities

Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk

This conference’s remit is to explore the numerous ways in which the modernist writer and painter Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) belonged to cultural networks of influence and inheritance. Dedicated Lewis scholarship has, during the past decade, shown how key a part Lewis played in various communities of his time (e.g. the early 20th-century avant-garde, ‘little magazine’ culture, and modernist sociality), as well as how many important contributions he made to an impressive variety of intellectual traditions and critical practices (e.g. ethnology, political theorizing, Semitism, Bergsonism, cinema scholarship, nihilism, and postmodernism, among others). www.ies.sas.ac.uk/events/conferences/wyndhamlewis Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk

Going underground: travel beneath the metropolis 1863-2013 10 January 2013 will mark the 150th anniversary of the public opening of the Metropolitan Railway in London. It was the world’s first urban rapid transport system to run partly in subterranean sections. As the precursor of today’s London Underground, it was not only a pioneer of technological and engineering advances, but also instigated new spatial, political, cultural and social realms that are now considered to be synonymous with London and modern urban experiences across the globe. The Centre for Metropolitan History, Institute of Historical Research, is marking the anniversary by organising a two-day conference dedicated to the history and use of the London Underground. Taking the construction and opening of the Metropolitan Railway as a departure point, this conference seeks to explore the past, present and future of the London Underground from a variety of perspectives that investigate its histories, geographies, cultures, politics and social characteristics.

It is intended for absolute beginners, or for those with a smattering of the language but who wish to acquire more confidence.

The course is open to all who are interested in using Latin for their research. An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Latin I (9 October – 11 December 2012) Intermediate Medieval and Renaissance Latin (9 January - 13 March 2013) Further Medieval and Renaissance Latin (24 April - 26 June 2013) It may be taken either as a whole, over a year for a fee of £500 or alternatively, any of the three term-long courses may be taken for £225 each.

Screen studies group postgraduate training day Starting with the Senses This Screen Studies Grouptraining day aims to explore the way the senses have been theorized, historicized, with regard to screen media past and present. While this covers a lot of ground, one impetus for this is what we might call the recent neurological turn in screen and many other studies, which finds much creative value in getting a better understanding of the many ways in which we perceive, and how that relates to what we feel. The morning keynote will feature a speaker from neuroscience on the perception of moving images. The topics will include: - Colour and the senses - The differences with regard to the senses in varying media: individuation v synesthesia in gaming; big screen film viewing, computer, television, installation work - Affect and its critiques - Haptic spectatorship/ theories of embodiment - The evolution of the cinematic body/gesture and mimesis - The present moment (Daniel Stern’s idea of rare, genuine presence and its relationship to film viewing) - Mapping the senses Contact: IESEvents@sas.ac.uk / 020 7664 4859

Project organisation and management This workshop is designed to help students complete their PhD successfully by planning and organising their research and time using project management techniques to take them from research idea to delivery of the thesis. The session will look at defining the project and its goals, timetabling, milestones, resources, responsibilities, risks, and how to review the plan when the project changes. Basic use of the software MS Project will be touched on. The session will allow students the opportunity to start putting together their own project plan; consider the structure and processes that are essential for a successful project, and discuss issues such as estimating inputs, quality management, working with others, and identifying the critical path to delivering the PhD within schedule.

Sue Onslow (Institute of Commonwealth Studies) and Matthew Hill (Institute for the Study of the Americas) Contact: katie.barton@sas.ac.uk

Elizabeth Danbury (UCL) and Richard Temple (Senate House Libraries) The session is for those who have recently begun, or are about to begin, to use archives in their research. An overriding aim is to help researchers develop effective strategies for exploring their subjects. Archives are not simply passive repositories of information but bear the imprint of historical process and accident. Thinking about the nature of the archive itself can throw light on the cultural and historical context of the topic being investigated. A number of questions can be explored. What is an ‘archive’? How does it differ from ‘records’ or ‘documents’? Is there a wider view of materials from the past which might be comprehended by the term ‘archive’? Why were certain archives created? How have they survived? How do you formulate a strategy for finding the information that you think you need? What role can random exploration play? Participants are encouraged to come to the session prepared to talk and raise questions about their own experiences. Contact: katie.barton@sas.ac.uk
