On the Front Line of Academic Research: Neil Lazarus
S0.11
Stone upon Stone: Land, Labour and Consciousness in World-Literary Perspective. A talk by Professor Neil Lazarus from the English and Comparative Literature Department.

Have you ever wondered where the contemporary field of academic research is heading? What new ideas and concepts are being explored, what theories are being formulated? How Warwick contributes to the academic conversation?

 

This new series of talks by undergraduate research journal 'Warwick Uncanny: Journal of Literature, Theory and Modernity' aims to provide an answer to those questions. We will ask academics you might be familiar with - they might be one of your seminar tutors, or one of your lecturers - to talk about their current research projects. This way, you can get a glimpse of what the academic universe looks like beyond the scope of undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

 

 

*** Light refreshments will be provided. We will be accepting donations - your spare change can help us fund our future events! ***

 

Join us for our second event, meet the Warwick Uncanny team and ask us any questions you might have about undergraduate research.

 

See you there,

The WUJ Team

English undergraduate Adesola Akerele hosts discussion of her documentary, Brotherhood

JANUARY 23, 2018, THE OCULUS, OC0.03, 19.15

English undergraduate student Adesola Akerele is hosting a premiere and panel discussion of her own documentary, Brotherhood. Funded in part by Warwick's Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning, Brotherhood is a documentary that aims start a conversation that addresses the current narrative of the young black man. It features an organisation called the Amos Bursary (founded by Baroness Valorie Amos) which nurtures young black men and pushes them to excel as leaders. The Bursary has shaped outstanding black boys who have become pioneers in their generation. From those who have spoken in the House of Lords, to others who have developed apps, or even those who have raised money to attend Harvard University. This documentary gives a voice to boys who up until this point have not been able to share their own narratives.Through engaging in these conversations, we learn how these young black men manoeuvre themselves in a society that works against them.

 

Following the screening. There will be a panel discussion regarding the film and about how to positively encourage the progression of young black people in society. We will also discuss what steps can be taken to essentially re- write the narrative of the young black person in the UK.
