SCI 105, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, Tuesday 13 November 2018, 6:00-7:00pm At 28 years old Daisy is the youngest novelist to be short listed for the Booker Prize.

Critically acclaimed ‘A deeply involving, unsettling novel that pulls the reader into a eerie yet recognisable world.” (Sunday Times), "Infused with dark fairy tale, Oedipal tragedy and Freudian desire, this is...

Decriminalising Ornament: The Pleasures of Pattern Illustration Research Symposium and Exhibition Ruskin Gallery, Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge, CB1 1PT Exhibition: 1 November to 26 November 2018 Symposium: 17 and 18 November 2018 This year's Illustration Research Symposium seeks to draw together a range of perspectives on ornament and ornamentation, and its close relatives pattern and the decorative, to explore the resilience, continued value, significance, application, and creation of these cultural forms; celebrating their centrality within human life and cultural production, both past and present, and (speculatively), the future. Speakers explore the cultural importance of pattern, ornament and decoration. We begin from the observation that what is so often missing is the significance  – the meaning – of ornament, which has become lost or eroded, but was once all-pervasive. The multiple practice-based and theoretical lenses...

Media Manipulation

Media Manipulation
Media Manipulation Media Manipulation: Ideologies and Political Economies of Intervention in a Digital World Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, 29th June 2018 The StoryLab Research Institute at Anglia Ruskin University and the ERC-funded “Risking Speech” project at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge hosted a workshop on the topic of “media manipulation”. Manipulation—of attention, opinion, action—has been a salient concern in the recent Euro-American takes on digital media and their role in politics. While the question of media and power is by no means new, attending to how manipulation is imagined and organised at various scales in diverse historical and geographical contexts promises a fresh perspective. The workshop, therefore, explored the relationship between vernacular ideologies of mediated influence and political economies of manipulative interventions both in and beyond Western democracies....
