Birkbeck Voices 26, Nov 2014: Hobsbawm scholars meet donors at unveiling event

This month's podcast was recorded from an event held on 11 November to unveil a portrait of Professor Eric Hobsbawm at Birkbeck. The event also gave supporters of the Hobsbawm Scholarship Fund the opportunity to meet the first students to receive support from it.

Birkbeck Voices 27, Dec 2014: Partnership with ArcelorMittal transforms lives through scholarships

Undergraduate and postgraduate students at Birkbeck are benefiting from generous funding thanks to support from ArcelorMittal – the world’s leading steel and mining company. In this podcast, Ian Louden, Head of Brand Worldwide, at ArcelorMittal, explains how the scholarships are part of the company’s regeneration efforts in east London. These began with the building of the distinctive 114.5m high ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture for the Olympics in London two years ago. Three of the scholarship students then describe their own experiences studying Environmental Management, Arts Policy and Management, and Crystallography, at Birkbeck. They describe their personal circumstances, ambitions and emphasise the opportunities opened to them as a result of the funding.

Birkbeck Voices 25, Oct 2014: Women and art history during the nineteenth century

Professor Hilary Fraser, Executive Dean of the School of Arts at Birkbeck and Geoffrey Tillotson Chair of Nineteenth-Century Studies, explores some of the areas covered in her new book: Women writing art history in the nineteenth century. Looking like a woman. She explains the social and technological changes which allowed art history to develop as a new intellectual discipline during the nineteenth century and how female art historians played an important role in this development. She discusses the barriers to recognition of women’s expertise in art history, and how they often used unconventional vehicles to develop their ideas such as novels, travel guides and journalism.

Birkbeck Voices 24, Sept 2014: Spotlight on research and the REF: what they mean and why they matter

University research leads to scientific and medical advances and a better understanding of society. Today the impact of such work is increasingly being analysed, in part because of the requirements of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) – an audit of the quality of research in the UK higher education sector. Professor Stephen Frosh, Pro-Vice-Master for Research and Chair of the REF Working Party at Birkbeck, highlights the pragmatic and philosophical purpose of research in this podcast interview. He speaks about the REF ahead of the results being announced this December, and highlights case studies included in Birkbeck’s submission, including work on cancer therapies and the use of eye-tracking to help restore a damaged painting. Professor Frosh, based in Birkbeck’s pioneering Department of Psychosocial Studies, also talks about his own research on intergenerational trauma.
