2022-06-12T14:00:00Z2022-06-12T16:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

David Owen Norris presenter, piano

Duncan Honeybourne piano
Professor Tim Champion speaker
Laura Cox speaker
plus Southampton student musicians

Thomas Hardy
Extracts from A Tryst at an Ancient Earth Work
A tale of archaeological skulduggery at Maiden Castle (which Hardy called Mai Dun, the Celtic version of its name).

John Ireland
Symphonic Rhapsody: Mai-Dun (arranged for 2 Pianos by the composer)
Prelude: The Forgotten Rite (arranged for 2 Pianos by the composer)

Gerald Finzi

Join host David Owen Norris along with experts and special guests for an afternoon of musical and archaeological discoveries.

Professor Tim Champion will talk about Maiden Castle in Dorset and how our knowledge of it has developed over the years; and also about the changing nature of archaeology in the later nineteenth century. Legal protection for some sites was introduced in 1882, and Dorchester Museum was opened in 1884. Thomas Hardy was very interested in archaeology as a science and very well informed; he came to know personally some of the most important archaeologists of the period, such as Pitt Rivers and Petrie, and was totally in sympathy with such modernisers.

Laura Cox will speak about Women in Dorset Archaeology in the 1880s. Her PhD topic is women landowners in Dorset and Hampshire, as seen through the eyes of Thomas Hardy.

David Owen Norris will speak about music inspired by the prehistoric traces of humankind, from Stonehenge to Ancient Greece. He will also be joined by pianist Duncan Honeybourne to mark the 60th anniversary of the death of composer John Ireland with performances of two works in their rarely heard two-piano versions.

Title: The Fate of Sediment after a Large Earthquake

Abstract: Large continental earthquakes can generate 104-105 years of erosion in a geologically instantaneous moment through coseismic landslide generation. Evacuation of this landslide sediment can result in higher sediment fluxes immediately after earthquakes but they typically return to background levels within a decade resulting in an unknown volume of earthquake-derived sediment remaining in mountainous landscapes for centuries to millennia. The presence of relict landslide deposits, aggraded channels, and landslide dams suggests that this remaining sediment may affect the topographic evolution and sediment export from an orogen long after the earthquake shaking stops. We examine the processes by which the 3km3 of sediment generated by landslides associated with the 2008 Mw7.9 Wenchuan Earthquake have moved within and through catchments. Sediment export by fluvial erosion, debris flows, and overland flow was measured using a satellite-derived multi-temporal landslide inventory of the 10 years since the earthquake and literature-derived values. Less than 3% of the sediment generated by the earthquake has transited tributary catchments (of order <5) to enter the major axial rivers draining the orogen. Within the tributary catchments, the delivery of sediment to both the axial river and the tributary channel is controlled by the frequency and magnitude of debris flows. Fluvial undercutting of landslide deposits plays a minor role in controlling sediment export, likely due to the low stream power and coarse nature of the sediment in tributary channels. Our observations suggest that the long term evolution of channels in these range front catchments may be governed by the stochastic delivery of earthquake derived sediment for centuries after the earthquake.

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

A fascinating talk from multi-Emmy and Bafta winning wildlife cameraman Toby Strong, who has worked on many of the BBC’s landmark series throughout his career.

Over the last 25 years Toby has travelled across every continent, from crossing the Sahara with camels to sailing to the Galapagos, from the Himalayas to the ice caves on the peak of mount Erebus in Antarctica. He has walked with elephants, bears and gorillas, stolen the kill from a lion pride with the Dorobo tribe, stood with Sir David Attenborough next to the last two northern white rhinos, and faced more deadly snakes than is healthy.
From Toby’s beginnings in a small English village, we follow his unique and amazing life to the four wild corners of the world, and his encounters with incredible animals and incredible people.

His most recent project, Earthshot Prize, saw him working with Sir David Attenborough and Prince William on a series that looks to halt and solve our great problems. As someone who has seen the beauty of this world but also its demise, Toby cares very deeply and this talk will be full of passion, extraordinary tales, humour, and heart.

The Unthanks return to live touring after two years off the road, showcasing forthcoming new album, Sorrows Away, their first non-project based record since 2015 BBC Folk Album Of The Year, Mount The Air.

Tyneside sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank head up a five-piece band with influences ranging from Steve Reich to Portishead. They have had a busy few years, having scaled up to symphonic levels with Charles Hazelwood and the BBC Proms, scaled down to the unaccompanied singing they grew up with for Diversions Vol 5, written
six scarecrow soundtracks for Mackenzie Crook’s beautiful adaptation of Worzel Gummidge, and interpreted the work of female writers including Emily Bronte, Molly Drake and Maxine Peake.

Tonight they bring their rich and colourful sound to perform music from Sorrows Away, alongside performances of favourites such as The King Of RomeMagpieStarless and Mount The Air.

Few of their contemporaries, within both folk music and the wider artistic spectrum, have such a keenly-honed ability to locate in a song the emotional essence that can, in just a single phrase or vocal elision, cut one to the quick. The Independent

​Critical thinking skills are one of the most valued academic skills at a British University and one of the most important for being successful in academia. Critical thinking skills, however, are also one of the most difficult abilities to master for international students. While such a difficulty in ‘being critical’ is widely recognised, more needs to be done in terms of teaching to meet international students’ needs. The aims of this workshop is to help tutors to develop critical thinking teaching techniques and support students in the acquisition of higher cognitive competencies.

Mozart Piano Concerto No 12 in F, K414
Mozart Piano Concerto No 13 in C, K415

To round off their first year as Associate Artists the Chiaroscuro are joined by a celebrated special guest. Award winning French pianist Cédric Tiberghien is renowned for his solo recitals and his chamber collaborations, in particular his longstanding partnership with the Chiaroscuro’s first violinist Alina Ibragimova. This evening, performing on fortepiano, Cédric joins the quartet for two of the concertos which Mozart wrote in Vienna in 1782, and which the composer described in a letter to his father as ‘a happy medium between too heavy and too light. They are very brilliant, pleasing to the ear, and natural, without being insipid’. The concert opens with the sole complete portion of a planned quartet which Schubert abandoned. Published for the first time in 1870, more than forty years after his death, it has become one of the composer’s most popular works.

Risks are everywhere and they impact our lives in a myriad of profound ways. The COVID-19 pandemic, global climate change, financial crises, fraud, and the rapid spread of misinformation are just a few examples of the spectrum of risks that society currently faces. Hence, it is little wonder that risk now receives an increasing level of attention from researchers from across every academic field.

To harness and bring together researchers interested in risk from across the University of Southampton, Dr Ian Dawson and Dr Yaniv Hanoch from the Centre for Risk Research (https://www.southampton.ac.uk/risk/index.page) is delighted to announce the first university-wide Risk Research Workshop. Researchers from every discipline and school across the university are invited to attend the workshop, where you will have the opportunity to meet other risk researchers, showcase your work, and create new synergies and collaborations.

The workshop - currently scheduled as an in-person event for the first week in July 2022 - will enable researchers to learn about the broad range of risk research taking place at the university, network with other researchers, and learn about forthcoming funding opportunities. We anticipate that the workshop will include speed networking, presentations from external funding agencies (e.g., ESRC), and the option of presenting a poster about your research.

All staff welcome.

​This series is aimed at Research staff and ECRs


Series Overview:

In this workshop, we provide an introduction to some of the core skills and tools needed to produce reliable, sustainable, and reproducible workflows for research data management. The core skills taught are: - Manipulating data in Spreadsheets using traditional programmes e.g. Excel and in the data specific program OpenRefine. - Using the shell/bash which is a text base interface that allows for more precise, efficient, and in-depth control of the computer and its file systems. - Using Git/Github a version control and collaborative working tool that keeps track of previous versions of files and code and can show differences and contributions from many collaborators. - Using R to load, process, and visualise data. As well as demonstrating some best practice for writing clear code. Each of these lessons are suitable for learners who have never used these tools before or have had some experience and are looking to go back to basics to formalise their understanding.

 

Learning Outcomes:

- Learn the basics of Spreadsheets, Shell/Bash, Git/version control, and R.

- Use traditional and data-focused spreadsheet tools to load, manipulate, clean, and analyse data.

- Be able to manage and manipulate directories containing thousands of files, process the data and provide output from the command line.

- Use Git to start a project, make changes and commit changes to Github.

- Write an R script that opens a file, processes the data and visualises the result.

 

Series Details:

"Introductory Research Data Management with R" is a seven part series which runs from 8th – 17th August 2022. You are welcome to book for all seven sessions, or just for those you feel you need. The exception is sessions 5-7, which are all focussed on R, and all need to be attended.

The core skills taught are: - Manipulating data in Spreadsheets using traditional programmes e.g. Excel and in the data specific program OpenRefine. - Using the shell/bash which is a text base interface that allows for more precise, efficient, and in-depth control of the computer and its file systems. - Using Git/Github a version control and collaborative working tool that keeps track of previous versions of files and code and can show differences and contributions from many collaborators. - Using R to load, process, and visualise data. As well as demonstrating some best practice for writing clear code. Each of these lessons are suitable for learners who have never used these tools before or have had some experience and are looking to go back to basics to formalise their understanding.

 

Learning Outcomes:

- Learn the basics of Spreadsheets, Shell/Bash, Git/version control, and R.

- Use traditional and data-focused spreadsheet tools to load, manipulate, clean, and analyse data.

- Be able to manage and manipulate directories containing thousands of files, process the data and provide output from the command line.

- Use Git to start a project, make changes and commit changes to Github.

- Write an R script that opens a file, processes the data and visualises the result.

Comparative Judgement Methods

Additional Place Info: Online

The online course will take attendees through the entire process of using comparative judgement to construct reliable measurement scales.

Comparative judgement methods are used by social scientists to construct reliable measurement scales that are difficult to construct using traditional methods.

These methods have a long history but are only now gaining traction due to technological developments making them more accessible to researchers.

Bursaries are available for this course.

Introduction to Spatial Data and Using R as a GIS

Additional Place Info: Room 2015, Building 39, University of Southampton

In this one day course we will explore how to use R to import, manage and process spatial data. We will also cover the process of making choropleth maps, as well as some basic spatial analysis.

Finally, we will cover the use of loops to make multiple maps quickly and easily, one of the major benefits of using a scripting language to make maps, rather than traditional graphic point-and-click interface.

Interpretive Political Science

Additional Place Info: University of Southampton, Southampton, England

Many students in the social sciences, especially in political science, public policy and public administration who decide to undertake qualitative or interpretive research, feel they are unqualified to do so.

They express deep-seated confusion about the reliability and generalizability of data, results, and conclusions. They feel that interpretive approaches lack the type of specialised training that has become commonplace in quantitative political science.

The aim of this course is to redress this gap. We will equip students with a toolkit that will enable them to both conceptualise and execute an interpretive project.
