Dr Tinashe Mushakavanhu: ‘Seeking the Cosmic Secrets’

September 2023

 

In this talk, Tinashe will present his journey as a researcher and the purpose of the work he does on African literary cultures. Tinashe’s work exists in the cracks between creative and critical methods, and writing genres, in order to imaginatively reconfigure the strictures that conventionally separate the poetic and the theoretical. The desire for this mode of thinking was born out of an uncomfortable tension with the authoritarian politics of his home country, Zimbabwe, an environment which made it difficult to be fully expressive as an intellectual and writer. But here, in Oxford, he is in pursuit of knowledge.

Prof. Tim Schwanen: ‘Changing Urban Transport – Why Oxford and Other UK Cities Are Experimenting With Controversial Policies’

September 2023

It is international in outlook, interdisciplinary in scope, informed by the thinking in various sub-disciplines within Geography, and organised around five more general concerns: Low-carbon mobilities and cities – innovation and experimentation, transformations, politics and governance, justice; Futures and temporality – sociotechnical transitions, path dependency, habit, rhythm, resilience, vulnerability; Social and spatial inequality – age, gender, the role of mobility and infrastructure; Well-being – conceptualisations, relationships with mobility and place, politics; Philosophy of transport and mobility – history of thought and praxis, new concepts and modes of thinking.

Birtan Demirel: ‘Spread the Word: Eliminating Stammering during Presentations’

September 2023

 

Birtan Demirel, a PhD student at St Anne’s in Experimental Psychology has been developing a method over the last year that helps eliminate stammering during presentations and talks. Over the past year, Birtan has successfully invented a method that has enabled him to deliver public speeches without stammering. He is collecting data on this method during the Summer to assess its effectiveness for others who stammer. He expects to have ample data to present to alumnae at the St Anne’s Gaudy in September 2023. Birtan hopes this will ultimately benefit millions of people who stammer worldwide. More information can be found on his website here: https://www.psy.ox.ac.uk/people/birtan-demirel

‘The Arab Hall at Leighton House’ with Dr Melanie Gibson

August 2023

 

Dr Melanie Gibson is an alumna of St Anne’s College (1978‒81). After graduating with a BA in Arabic she pursued her interests in the arts of the Islamic World by doing an MA at SOAS, University of London, and eventually also a PhD. She is currently Editor of the Gingko Art Series after having managed, and lectured for, the Islamic Art module of the at SOAS for many years. Her research focuses on the ceramics and glass of the Islamic world. She is trustee of The Friends of Leighton House, and her latest research is for a book on the Arab Hall at Leighton House. The Arab Hall, with its beautiful tiles, wooden lattices, gold mosaics and soaring dome captures the imagination of visitors today, just as it did when it was first revealed to the public in 1881. The first steps towards its creation can be traced to Frederic Leighton’s trip to Algeria; in the next decade he made many more trips to countries around the Mediterranean, always looking, sketching and collecting. In her research she revisited some of the places he travelled to, to investigate how the ideas and objects he collected were combined and displayed in this spectacular space.

‘The Birds and The Bees: Nature in Victorian Colour’ with Dr Maddie Hewitson

June 2023

 

On the 25th May, Dr Maddie Hewitson of the Ashmolean Museum’s Western Art Print Room gave a talk to St Anne’s College, Oxford’s Plumer Society. Following John Ruskin’s dictum to ‘go to nature in all singleness of heart… rejecting nothing, selecting nothing and scorning nothing’, many Victorian artists were drawn outdoors to revel in the offerings of the natural world. Against the backdrop of Charles Darwin’s defining publication On the Origin of Species (1859), the plumage of a bird, the iridescent shimmer of a fish scale and the delicate hue of butterfly wings took on a new, exciting significance for artists. These representations of the natural world will be analysed from the perspective of colour and examine how artists learned from the animal and plant kingdoms as they developed their palettes. This research is part of a forthcoming exhibition at the museum, ‘Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion & Design’ and many of the drawings discussed will feature in the show.

Oxford Comparative Criticism & Translation research centre: Prismatic Jane Eyre Student Video

The project comprised of three core activities: a series of translation workshops; a nation-wide translation competition; and a bank of resources for teachers and pupils.
