The Sound of the Strikes

In February and March, many Universities across the United Kingdom were affected by the largest wave of industrial action to hit the sector for many years. For this episode of the Global Lab, we spoke to Tony Brown and Sean Wallis from UCL's University and College Union branch about why the strikes took place. To give you a sense of what it felt like to be out on the streets during the dispute, we conducted interviews on the picket line and made binaural audio recordings of the two marches that took place in central London during the strikes. Binaural recordings are recorded using two microphones to create the illusion of a 3D soundscape. Best listened to on headphones… --- Produced by Valerio Signorelli and Duncan Hay ---

The Global Lab - Pinning It Down

Our theme for this episode is "pinning it down", the importance of labelling, classification and definitions in the fields of cities research, mapping and technology, with a literary sidestep into the eighteenth century for good measure. Our guests are Giles Rhys Jones, CMO of the innovative new mapping website what3words.com, Sophie Coulombeau, a specialist in eighteenth century literature who tells us about why botanical classification was once considered dangerously sexual, and Elsa Arcaute, a physicist here at CASA, who has been working on the surprising difficult task of how you actually define a city.

The Global Lab - Pinning It Down

The Global Lab - March of International Women

In this March episode of Global Lab, we take a look at two major events celebrated on 8 March: International Women’s Day and the 99th anniversary of the February Revolution in Russia. We have been inspired by the events of the February Revolution in Russia - when women took to the streets in protest for - and have, with the help of our interviewees, explored how women have reclaimed the urban streets and created, or are creating, change. Oliver Marsh speaks to Dr Philippa Hetherington (https://twitter.com/philippahether), Lecturer in Modern Eurasian History at UCL about the role women played in the February Revolution. Duncan Hay speaks to Professor Jane Rendell (http://www.janerendell.co.uk/) about feminism in city writing, and Hannah Sender interviews Dr Larissa Romualdo Suzuki (http://www0.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/l.romualdo/) about women designing smart cities. The show was put together by Hannah Sender from UCL Institute for Global Prosperity (https://twitter.com/glo_pro?lang=en-gb)...

The Global Lab - The Global Stage

We’re slap bang in the middle of panto season, so this month The Global Lab becomes The Global Stage, looking at the connections between our usual themes of cities, space and global networks and the world of the theatre. Treading the boards with us in this episode, we have playwright and academic, Dan Rebellato, telling us how the rising tide of globalisation has affected the theatre, live artist Anna Brownsted, who talks to Hannah Sender about her immersive site-specific performances, and theatre producer and broadcaster Nick Hennegan, who invites us to tour the historic drinking establishments of Bloomsbury and Soho on the London Literary Pub Crawl. Links related to each of our guests may be found below, where you can buy Dan Rebellato's book 'Theatre & Globalization', find out the latest information on Anna Brownsted's live art installations, or book a place on Nick Hennegan's London Literary Pub Crawls. ___ GUESTS: Dan Rebellato: https://twitter.com/DanRebellato (twitter) http:...
