    April 2016 Newsletter

    Welcome to our April 2016 newsletter. With Easter being early this year, we have had not as many recordings ans we usually have in March, but the ones we have are exceptionally interesting and stimulating.
    A number of the series of talks were drawing to a close, and this was the case with the talks for the MA ‘Gender without Borders’ at Kingston University. The final talk in this series was

    and you can find a page with all the talks here:

    The ‘Making Space for Art’ series of talks with gallery and museum curators continued at Royal Holloway with:

    First a book launch:

    then a debate instigated by the holder of the current Visiting Fellowship, Tara Atluri (Ontario):

    and finally, a bit of a strange one – entitled ‘Bad Feelings: Launch & Panel Discussion’ it had been intended to be ‘discussions on negation, negativity, and a bottomless pit of negative emotions’ but somehow descended into a rather bad-tempered and emotional confrontation between contributors and publishers – you can listen to it here:

    Now as the summer term starts, we have plenty of interesting recordings coming up and we urge institutions and event organisers to get in their bookings in good time, as the co-ordination of multiple recordings takes time and effort. EMAIL
