Events

THIS WEEK (WEDNESDAY TO WEDNESDAY)

English PGR Seminar Series: Elaine Hobby | Thursday 16 November 2017 | 5.15pm | QMUL Mile End

This week’s paper:

‘Editing the Cambridge Edition of the Complete Works of Aphra Behn’

 

Herpes by Eirini Kartsaki | Friday 24 November 2017 | 7.30pm | Chisenhale Dance Space

From Eirini: ‘A reminder that I am presenting Herpes this Friday at Chisenhale Dance Space, alongside Emma Bennett with What Matter. It’s Fiver Fridays, so please come along’

HERPES is a performance about desire, STI’s and fantasizing about the Duchess of Cambridge. It considers the ways in which we have been told that we either need to have a baby or stop banging the whole world. And if we don’t, we will, of course, get herpes.

HERPES departs from an anxiety to do with growing up and not wanting to settle down, or settle in; it deals with a refusal to get on with it, or get it together; it kind of says: I do not want to pull myself together, I do not want to come to my senses. I want to live my life as if it is mine – but it is mine, it is mine and yet I still struggle to come to terms with it and ignore my mother’s wishes, my father’s hopes for me, which are easily summed up: get a husband, a good job, have a baby, have a mortgage, be sensible, be sensible, be sensible.

The Dental school are really keen to run a small scale trial of some of this, and have kindly invited Drama students down to Whitechapel to get involved and give some preliminary thoughts to how we might collaborate.

New Creatives Programme at Richmix | Deadline 29 September

‘A year-long programme, introducing 16s – 25s from Tower Hamlets to the arts and creative industries

During the year you will meet and learn from members of the Rich Mix team as well as experts from Rich Mix’s artistic partners.

Our six month taster programme runs from October 2017 – February 2018, during which you will learn the ins and outs of how an arts venue works, how to programme events and curate an artistic programme, how to produce events, how to promote events and use social media and the internet to get the word out there, how to reach new audiences and to connect with schools and community organisations, and how to make it all work financially!

Then, from February until September 2018, there will be an opportunity for 5 participants to gain a Silver Arts Award  and be offered a placement at Rich Mix. The placement will include receiving hands on experience in supporting programming, production and promotion of our annual TAKEOVER – an arts festival for 16s – 25s, as well as an opportunity to shadow our staff and to contribute to creative work that we do

At the end of the year, you’ll be inspired, envisioned and empowered to begin your career in the arts.

We are seeking young people from Tower Hamlets aged 16-25 to apply to become Rich Mix New Creatives. ‘

Jerry Brotton – Reformations 14: Shakespeare at Hay Festival | Thu 1 June | Hay on Wye

“The author of This Orient Isle asks how we understand Shakespeare in a global world when his language seems more remote than ever. Drawing on his recent involvement in international productions of Macbeth and Othello he explains how Shakespearean character and language is created through rehearsal and stage action. He concludes by arguing that schools should stop studying the plays as words on the page but instead rehearse and perform them however they can.”

Sexual Cultures Research Group present: Sara Ahmed | Wed 17 May | 18:00 | QMUL – Mile End, ArtsTwo Lecture Theatre

The Sexual Cultures Research Group is pleased to announce their third event, a public lecture by Sara Ahmed entitled ‘Queer Use’:

‘The lecture draws from my current research into “the uses of use.” In this lecture I reflect on the gap between the intended function of an object and how an object is used as a gap with a queer potential. I do not simply affirm that potential, but offer instead an account of how institutional and sexual cultures are built to enable some uses more than others. Small acts of use are the building block of habit: use can build walls as well as worlds. To bring out the queerness of use requires a world-dismantling effort; to queer use is to make usage into a crisis.’

Sara Ahmed is a feminist writer, scholar, and activist. She is the author of Living a Feminist Life, Willful Subjects, On Being Included, The Promise of Happiness, and Queer Phenomenology.
