1215.today Project participation opportunity

“For the production of a unique artwork for the ‘1215.today’ arts/rights/digital project, commissioned artist duo Ben and Steph are reaching out for participants from all over the UK, and was wondering whether you would be interested in being involved.

Steph and Ben are exploring the impact that online media is having upon the individual’s ability to process and formulate their own thoughts and identity

They are interested in collecting the Facebook activity of different individuals in the week running up to last year’s EU Referendum. Using this data anonymously, they aim to paint a picture of the online chains of thought across the UK, be it informative or confusing, sensible or absurd, focused or irrelevant. Their hope is to create a reflective experience that encourages contemplation around the event and our use of online media.

Protecting participant anonymity and privacy is of the utmost importance and will be ensured through a signed contract between participant and artists.

First Reflections on Trump Roundtable

First Reflections on President Trump: A Roundtable

(Historical Association, Lincoln Branch)

Monday 20th February 2017, 6pm, David Chiddick Building, DCB1101


Overnight on Tuesday 8th November 2016 a political earthquake took place in the United States when Donald Trump was successfully elected the 45th President of the United States. His campaign, transition and first days in office have successively forced historians to reflect anew on what we thought were established norms of US politics. In particular, Trump has called into question the legitimacy of such doctrines as a free press, the separation of powers and judicial independence, and equal rights. He has also asserted presidential powers with surprising force given Republican control of Congress and previous reservations about Obama’s exercise of said powers. In rhetoric and reality he challenges principles of racial and gender equality which appeared on their way to becoming norms. Historians can assist in comprehending these shifts by putting Trump into the context of his predecessors. Join us for first reflections on Trump from:
