1330 – 1500         Skills Sessions

  • Arts and Humanities in the Digital Age - Frobisher Auditorium
    With Dr Francesca Benatti (OU) and Dr Matthew Sillence (University of East Anglia)
    The CHASE Arts and Humanities in the Digital Age programme will engage you with the concepts and practices that form the field of Digital Humanities, preparing you for the challenges of doing research in an increasingly digital world.
    After completing the course, you will be able to analyse, understand and use digital data, to assess information technologies critically, and to integrate discipline-specific enquiry with digitally-driven methodologies and media to develop your own research. You will learn through workshops that combine methodological reflection with hands-on exercises and by developing a Digital Humanities project together with other students.
    This session will introduce the Arts and Humanities in the Digital Age training programme, which takes place between January and May 2019.

  • Media Skills taster - Frobisher room 1
    Media and communications workshop: an interactive session to give students a solid grounding in techniques and practical skills for handing broadcast interviews, presentations and more.

    This session is an opportunity for CHASE practice led researchers working in a global context to meet and discuss some of the conflicts and challenges they have faced on their research/practice journey. This session will be of use to both early and later stage practice led researchers.

  • Utopian Acts, Academia, Art and Activism - Frobisher room 3

    With Katie Stone and Raphael Kabo (Birkbeck, University of London)
    In September of 2018 we organised an event titled ‘Utopian Acts’. It featured academic papers, artist talks, film screenings and workshops by 40 speakers and was attended by over 120 people. We found that the strange journey which ‘Utopian Acts’ took us on led us to a new, appropriately utopian, understanding of what academic work might look like. We would like to take this opportunity to share this journey with you, both to stress the exciting possibilities which collaborative projects outside of your thesis might offer and to collectively explore new ways of conducting research in relation to art and activism.

  • Sound Portraits of Space, Site Intervention and Soundscape Walk - Please meet by the Silk Street Entrance
    With Debbie Kent, Orly Orbach and Robert Deakin (Goldsmiths, University of London)

  • How do we document and visualise sound? What's a memory of sound?

    In this listening workshop we will use our camera phones and portable mirrors to respond to soundscapes around the Barbican. This site offers a wide range of sonic environments to explore, from the noise of the construction site to the hush of the concert hall and everything in between.

    Work produced will be displayed as a temporary exhibition in the Barbican as part of the conference the next day.

    Please note that this session will involve some walking outside in the elements! Please remember to bring your smartphone (or find a buddy to share with!)

  • Digital Audio and Audio Processing - Frobisher room 4
    With Mattia Cobianchi (Goldsmiths, University of London)
    Most of us have probably needed at some point to edit and “retouch” a soundscape recording, an interview, a piece of music we have recorded, or put together a single soundtrack for a theatrical performance with equal loudness across the different parts. This workshop will cover the basic theory of digital audio and frequency analysis, and then demonstrate how to use the free and open source software “Audacity” to manipulate audio and recognize patterns and features in an audio signal.
    Please bring along: A computer, ideally with a recent release of Audacity already installed (https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity.html/audacity-win-2.3.0.exe); headphones

  • The Road to Genocide: Fieldwork on the Rwandan Struggle for Liberation 1990-1994 - Frobisher room 5
    With John Burton Kegel (University of Kent)
    Significant research has been done on the Rwandan Genocide (April-July 1994), but the civil war (October 1990-July1994) which preceded, and ended it, have not received as much attention. I had the privilege of conducting five months of fieldwork in Rwanda interviewing the veterans of this ‘Struggle for Liberation’. This workshop will first introduce the audience to the subject and then discuss the joys and challenges which I faced during my research. The session will conclude with an extensive Q&A, where we can discuss fieldwork in a ‘difficult’ country more broadly.

  • Kickstarting Your PhD - Frobisher room 6
    With Dr Marie-Alixe Thouaille
    In this hands-on workshop for early-stage doctoral researchers, you will:

    ·         consider how to make a start on your doctoral project;
    ·         discuss the typical milestones of a PhD and identify potential challenges;
    ·         explore how project management tools and techniques can help you to organise your work amidst competing priorities;

  • One in the Other: Murat Adash (Goldsmiths, University of London)
    One in the Other depicts a choreography in which a group of eleven dancers shift in and out of various geometric constellations. By establishing the fluctuating stages of contact and division, they build a complex accumulation of gestures and bodily compositions. Moving within a game-like structure oscillating between the individual and collection - the dancers channel gestures of resemblance, correspondence, similarity, and difference.

  • Is My Body Out of Date?: Elly Clarke (University of Sussex)
    ‘Is My Body Out Of Date?’ is a live networked performance that poses the question of whether, in a world that is increasingly managed and experienced online, our bodies as our primary mode of interaction may be beginning to feel a little out of date; our desire for sweaty, messy, fleshy physical co-presence out of whack with the elegant efficiency and agility of our algorithms. Performed live at a laptop with Clarke's long term collaborator Vladimir Bjelicic joining via Skype from Belgrade, the performance makes use of repetition and cites songs and videos from Clarke's own drag queen alter ego character #Sergina (who Bjelicic also plays). The script is voiced by both performers, as well as by the inbuilt macbook (male and female) computer voices. The performance is screen shared.

  • Play Extract from ‘Quarry’ by Joseph (Grant) Corr (University of East Anglia)
    If you are a gay man of a certain generation you have trained yourself to be an outsider”, “or to regard yourself as an outsider. And that is what you are: you must never underestimate the sheer historical depth of homophobia in Ireland. And that exists in the theatre as well – perhaps it’s even more pronounced in the theatre, where there is this almost heterosexual panic in case you engage too deeply with gay issues. (playwright Frank McGuinness).

    Quarry is a play that takes a closer look at loyalist paramilitaries and explores the individuals who were part of these organisations. In particular, exploring issues around sexualities, social class and the cost of personal freedom.

  • Brazilian Post-Punk: A DJ Set by Bruno Verner (Goldsmiths, University of London)
    This DJ set will be based on a selection of overlooked Brazilian music spanning from Tropicalismo to Post-Punk, including Funk Carioca, Dark-Sambas and other uncategorised genres. Bruno Verner is currently a PhD researcher in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths. Verner is also a member of Brazilian tropical punk funk duo Tetine. He has produced a number of performances, music albums, videos and installations. For further info: www.tetine.net

  • ‘Bodies and Fragments’: Two Short Readings by Kate Pickering and Giulia Damiani  (Goldsmiths, University of London)
    ‘Cell’ by Kate Pickering moves between anecdote, fact and theorisation. The materiality of soft bodies in states of flux, water vapour and mould become enmeshed with the weightiness of concrete, the security of building foundations which fix bodies in place. In ‘Pastilhas’ Damiani reflects on the language of hardness through her research on the feminist archive of Le Nemesiache based in Napoli, the city of the volcano Vesuvius. This text is also an attempt to problematically translate her work in the context of São Paulo (Brazil), where Damiani has worked in the last two years.


Programme - Day 2 - Tuesday 20 November

0900 – 0930         Registration
Garden Room

0930 – 1100         Research in Progress Presentations
Hippolyta Paulusma (University of East Anglia), and Elizabeth Lewis Williams (University of East Anglia)
Chair: Dr Denise Decaires Narain (CHASE DTP Director)
Frobisher Auditorium

Hippolyta Paulusma: Invisible Music - Angela Carter and the Prosodic Influences of Folk Song
It is a surprisingly little-known fact that Angela Carter was a folk singer in the 1960s second-wave folk revival. A newly unearthed archive reveals that she not only co-founded a folk club in the 1960s with her first husband, folk producer Paul Carter, but that she also sang there fortnightly for several years. This paper collates some of the evidence of Carter’s folk singing praxis through the new archive, her diary extracts, album sleevenotes and a recording of her singing.

Elizabeth Lewis Williams: Flights of Fancy, Birds as Messengers in Atlantic Writing
Elizabeth is in the third year of a creative-critical PhD in poetry at UEA.  Both creative and critical projects are focused on poetry and science in Antarctica. This paper explores the relationship between figurative and scientific language as it occurs in the particular context of writing about Antarctic birds.  This writing shows birds as messengers, and opens up an important space in which we see a bringing together of the actual and the metaphorical, the scientific with high art.

  • ‘Surviving or Thriving’: Every Day Mental Maintenance with Self Space - Frobisher room 3
    In a world which can sometimes feel challenging, frightening, overwhelming, complex and seriously hard to navigate, it’s not surprising that sometimes we don’t feel ok. Everyday mental maintenance is an essential part of surviving. Self Space offers a contemporary approach to maintaining mental health. A good conversation with a qualified person, in order to have a bit of space to reflect, process, and offload.
    Join the Self Space team for a workshop exploring the theme of ‘Surviving or Thriving’. The experiential workshop will be run by two qualified therapists and will focus on what it may feel like to be in survival mode within our lives, and what it may feel like to be thriving. We will look at creative ways of bridging this gap by asking questions such as ‘where are we at?’; ‘where do we want to be?’; ‘how are we going to get there?’, and responding to through therapeutic tools. Download the Self Space app www.theselfspace.com

  • CHASE Feminist Network - Frobisher room 4
    The CHASE Feminist Network is working to provide spaces of resistance in what continues to be a patriarchal higher education sector, with ongoing and intersectional discrimination happening at all levels.  We are aiming to create links with inspirational people inside and outside of CHASE that are challenging this environment and ensure we have space for discussion, and networks that provide both professional and personal support. The network places a strong emphasis on the importance of considering intersectionality and interdisciplinarity, as well as valuing the personal, political and creative, alongside and as integral to the academic.
    We would like to invite you to our discussion event at Encounters, where we will bring together people interested in getting involved in the network.  The event will introduce our Small Projects Fund, which will welcome funding applications for feminist inspired projects and events for up to £500 and our Sharing Feminist Research and Practice networking event in February.

By bringing together established scholars and doctoral researchers to discuss and develop on-going conversations about the value, method and impact of recovery research, the retreat will foster critical reflection on how each individual’s project fits within and speaks to wider research practices around recuperation and political commitments to diversity in the humanities.

  • Objects in Space, ‘Whose Past is it Anyway?’: Stakeholders, Scholarship and Museum - Frobisher room 5
    Objects in Space is a series of six workshops across the year which explore global, transnational and postcolonial pasts by engaging with material collections and texts or objects in museums and exhibition spaces across London. The journeys of objects or the changing shape and use of spaces can offer a powerful means of unpicking, understanding and then conveying meaningfully and compellingly to a range of audiences the processes and legacies of empires. This session focuses upon ownership of the past, material cultures, and museum spaces.

  • Brief Encounters Journal - Frobisher room 6
    Brief Encounters was founded by CHASE students in April 2016 and is currently putting together its third issue for publication in 2019.

    As an open access journal, Brief Encounters supports the dissemination of knowledge to a global readership, with the intent that the research it publishes encourages the exchange of ideas outside of traditional academic circles. All articles published by Brief Encounters are free to read and accessible to all with no registration required.
    This session will provide an introduction to the journal and invites CHASE affiliated individuals who are interested in becoming involved (as an Editorial Board member or contributor) to learn more about the project.

1530-1630            Keynote 2: Pollyanna Ruiz
‘Footnotes from Beyond, Behind, and Inbetween Academia and Activism’
Chair: Dr Denise Decaires Narain
Frobisher Auditorium
In this talk I will reflect upon the academic and activist interests which underpinned my PhD. In doing so I will contrast the performance of academia with my lived experience of writing a thesis, focusing in particular on all the rich-and-messy-stuff that fell beyond, behind or in between the papers I gave, and the pages I wrote.

Dr Pollyanna Ruiz is Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication at the University of Sussex. She is interested in the media’s role in the construction of social and political change. Her book, Articulating Dissent; Protest and the Public Sphere, focuses on the ways in which protest movements bridge the gap between their own familiar but marginal spaces, and a mainstream which is suspicious at best and downright hostile at worst.
