Colleagues from IATL, Student Careers and Skills and the Law School recently received WIHEA funding to bring together information about student research opportunities around the University. An institutional review was conducted and a student research hub on MyWarwick was created. The hub covers what research is, the benefits of getting involved, the opportunities available, and will soon be linked to opportunities within departments.
The works from the University of Warwick Art Collection chosen for installation in The Oculus are intended to enhance its multi-disciplinary environment and act as informal provocations for ideas. Staff and students, including IATL’s Director, Dr Nicholas Monk, were invited to contribute labels to accompany the works of art to open up their areas of enquiry to the users of the building.

The Bed of Passage is an original play written and directed by Christophe Locatelli and has been funded by an IATL Student as Producer (Performance) grant. It depicts an intimate conversation between a couple in bed that turns into a journey of personal and emotional discovery. Intense and powerful, interspersed with moments of bittersweet humour, this is a production not to be missed.
