On Wednesday 17th October special guest Dr Owen Green (University of Huddersfield) joined us for a concert of multi-channel, surround-sound music in the Allsebrook Lecture Theatre. Owen diffused a range of fixed-media musical work from the University of Huddersfield during the first half, beginning with Dr Alex Harker’s guitar-derived Fractures, then on to Dr Elena Hidalgo’s Origen, and concluding with Professor Pierre Alexandre Tremblay’s mesmerising asinglewordisneverenough1.
After a short interval we heard two works featuring performances from Owen – Neither the Time nor the Energy (2015, revised 2018, live, for cardboard and truculent electronics), and an improvised duo featuring bowed cardboard box (Owen Green) and cello (Laura Reid). It was a rich and varied programme, and our thanks go to Owen Green for his inspiring performance and excellent musical selections. Once again, student volunteers from our BSc Music & Sound Production Technology provided crucial help rigging the loudspeaker system. Thanks to all who attended!

During the event more than 1,000 academic presentations were delivered in more than 100 themed sessions and two plenary sessions by Prof. Eszter Hargittai, Dr Lina Dencik as well as Prof. José Van Dijck and Dr Thomas Allmer. The plenaries focused on the central theme of the conference, ‘Centres and Peripheries: Communication, Research, Translation’ and addressed some of the most pressing pan-European issues in the field of media and communication. One of the sessions, delivered in the format of a critical intervention, focused on the issues surrounding the exploitation of academics in the field. Among the conference organising committee members was Dr Paweł Surowiec of the Faculty of Media of Communication, who also serves as the ECREA’s Treasurer. For more information about the conference follow #ECREA2018 or speak to the ECREA Coordinator in the Faculty, Dr Einar Thorsen (Ass. Prof.). The next biennial ECREA conference, 8th European Communication Conference, will take place between 2-5 October 2020. The event will be hosted by the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal.
CEMP convened the 12th Media Education Summit in Hong Kong last week. It was the biggest MES so far, with 170 delegates from 27 countries attending at Hong Kong Baptist University.
Feedback from delegates has been overwhelmingly positive – see the MESHK18 twitter thread – including invitations from prospective hosts in Asia. North America and central Europe for future years and several CEMP Ed-Doc enquiries have already been made by delegates from Hong Kong, China and Japan. Here are two examples:
I would like to thank you once again for a wonderful time in Hong Kong. For me it was a learning experience like no other, an experience that i shall never forget. (Doctoral student, Malta).
Researchers who presented have been invited to submit their work to Media Practice and Education, the journal edited in CEMP and BU doctoral graduate Marketa Zezuokova teamed up with South Island School to run this year’s youth strand, concluding with the school students forming a ‘flipped panel’ to field questions from the academics.
All the keynotes, the Youth MES video and Karen Fowler-Watt’s film with Fergal Keane will be available on the CEMP site in due course.
MES is a big project and the team at the event (Karen Fowler-Watt, Mark Readman, Annamaria Neag and Julian McDougall) are grateful to the people who make it happen at BU – Laura Hampshaw and Lokesh Sivakumar.

Think about your future ageing or old age.
What thoughts and feelings come to mind?
As a trained medical doctor and educator of health professional students, Curie became aware of the impact of ageing populations. In 2017, global population trends reversed: there are now more people over 65 years old than under five years old (United Nations, 2013). Nearly one in five people currently alive in the UK will get to their hundredth birthday (Department for Work and Pensions, 2011).
We are ageing. But we remain uncomfortable about talking about it.
Using drawing to discuss ageing
For her research, she was interested in whether drawing might help us talk about our future. She invited health professional students and people over 60 to a specially designed Drawing Programme to think about their future ageing. This was a four week expressive mark-making workshop-based programme. Examples of drawings were on display at the cafe. Of the five drawings linked to ageing, the masks (below) were the final drawing as it was the most personal.
Challenging the accepted Cultural ‘truths’ about ageing
It is clear that ‘older people’ are an ‘othered’ group. That is, we want to separate ourselves from being labelled ‘old’. The Drawing Programme facilitated openness and a willingness to consider the myriad ‘what-ifs’ of ageing. Participants noted ‘truths’ or ‘assumptions’ of ageing which they had absorbed from their surrounding Culture ageing. These were predominantly negative:
- Ageing is relative, dependent on one’s age
- Ageing is about decline with core and peripheral losses
- With ageing, one is concealed and outcast from society
- With increasing age, one is less valued
- Ageing as a discussion topic is taboo
- Ageing is ugly and is especially harsh to women
These myths echoed responses by those at Café Scientifique. Comments about the future included concerns about ill health, dependency, and loneliness. Positive aspects were about greater confidence, time to enjoy leisurely pursuits and have more time with family and friends.
Returning to the research, over the three month study period, participants interrogated their assumptions. They disentangled from dominant negative threads and chose new ways of being. They described some powerful shifts in thinking and behaviour. They shared a stronger internal sense of agency and choice – not that ageing would just ‘happen’ but that we all have choices we can make for and about our future ageing.
At the deepest level of consideration, participants could visualise themselves, and indeed accept, that they were likely to become old. They took control of the time they had left. At 73 years old, Veronica (not her real name) declared that the study propelled her into fulfilling her lifelong dream of playing the saxophone. With a strong family history of deaths in their sixties, Eva (not her real name) responded by changing her health behaviour and asking for health screening tests.
Drawing helped adults to think, explore, and articulate on the emotive topic of their future ageing. Curie ended with a line from the poem ‘Snow’ by poet laureate Carol Ann Dufffy which is carved on a stone in Durlston Country Park.

The European Commission invites to join the Info day of the new Blue Economy call. The event will be held in Brussels on Thursday 22 November 2018 from 9:30 to 15:30 (a draft programme of the event has been published).
Blue Economy call 2018: Blue Careers, Blue Labs and Grants for the Blue Economy aims to accelerate the implementation of the EU Maritime Policy and the sustainable development of the blue economy across Europe. The call has a focus on three topics – Blue Labs: innovative solutions for maritime challenges, Blue Careers in Europe, and Grants for the Blue Economy: investing in innovation.
EASME and DG MARE will then provide useful information about the new call and the application process. For more details and registration please refer to the event’s web page.
In February 2018 I was invited by Artercitya on a (still on-going) residency as an audio artist in a very large international project called Freiraum, organised by the Goethe-Institut and funded, amongst other important funders, by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. In the project, 38 cities in Europe, are dealing with the question of freedom in Europe today and consider where or how this freedom might be in danger.
(You can find details on Freiraum here: http://www.artbox.gr/2017_freiraum.html).
My involvement in the project, engaged Artecitya and ArtBOX (a big Creative Arts Management company) with my work as an educator here at Bournemouth University. They became particularly interested in the Graduate Production work created by our Level 6 students in the BA Media Production Course and particularly in the Graduate Production Project Unit, which I lead.
During the unit, ArtBOX, who organise the 3rd Artecitya Art Science Technology Festival – THE NEW NEW, realised by the Thessaloniki International Fair – HELEXPO, with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, came to the university and students had a chance to present to them prototypes of their graduate production work.
As a result, two of our BAMP Level 6 graduating students and my own supervisees, Daniel Bell and George Fisher, whose work fulfilled the brief of this new media arts event, were selected and presented their work, along with mine, in this major international exhibition, THE NEW NEW, in Thessaloniki –Greece between September 8 -16 2018.
In the link below you can see video and pictures from the exhibition and read details of our artworks and involvement in this major international event: http://www.artbox.gr/AST-2018.html
The three artworks, Daniel Bell’s Spectra, George Fisher’s Echoes in Space and my own Air Free, were very warmly received by the visitors and first survey results from the even organisers suggest that the work was seen by over 10.000 people and that the exhibition was voted amongst the most popular events in this major international fair.
Echoes in Space – George Fisher
Echoes in Space consists of 8 unique soundscapes and visuals themed after each of the planets’ characteristics. These soundscapes are an artistic reimagining of the Voyager probes recordings, though scattered throughout are real excerpts from the original Voyager recordings. Echoes in Space is a blurring of reality and crafted content; it asks the viewer to consider the divide between reality and fiction. As well as to understand the difficulty in comprehending what is real and what is crafted when you find yourself confronted by the unknown, and to ask oneself if there truly is a difference?
Spectra – Daniel Bell
Spectra is an audio-visual installation focusing on the contrast and convergence between the human and natural worlds. Stemming from the artists philosophy that every new concept we face in life comes to us as a spectrum of information, and to fully comprehend new concepts we must appreciate each spectra in their entirety
Air Free Future
The first iteration of my artwork Air Free that was presented in Greece, is made up of interviews with members of local communities in Thessaloniki, responding to questions on isolation and freedom. As a response to the Freiraum brief, the artwork is now entering a second phase. During this phase, I will be visiting Carlisle (UK) in order to conduct further recordings with members of the local community there on the same themes, by bringing the recordings from Greece to them. These new recordings will then be used along with the recordings from Thessaloniki in a second iteration of the artwork, which will be presented in an exhibition organised by the Goethe-Institut in Berlin Germany, between 12-13 March 2019.
Air Free Impact
My own work for Freiraum, due to its themes and very large scale international reach, lends itself rather strongly for an impact study, which I am now working on. Particularly looking at how the work brings forth issues of isolation in Europe today by bringing the voices of local communities, including the voices of minorities, in communication with each other as well as with international audiences.

From the successful event in 2017 titled “Putting Social Science into Project Management” and building on the presentation “Future of Project Management” …
Dr Karen Thompson of the Department of Leadership, Strategy and Organisations is delighted to be collaborating once again with Dr Paul Summers of the University of Winchester, UCL and the Association for Project Management to host a project management event in London on 8th November 2018 as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
‘Creative Futures in Projects and Programmes’ will bring together project practitioners and researchers for a unique dialogue about the future of project management. With a focus on the human dimension of projects, this will be a showcase for current qualitative research on projects and will feature initiatives from practice and student research. A series of presentations, posters and videos will prompt creative thinking and discussion of what the future might hold for project and programme management. Presentations will include:
Tom Taylor, Principle of Dashdot, founding partner of Buro Four and a vice-President of APM, speaking on “Looking! And Thinking Ahead! Fashions and Trends in the Management of Projects and Programmes”
Emily Miles, University College London, on “Where are the Women in Major Projects?”
Dr Clara Cheung, University of Manchester, on “Measuring what works: workplace well-being of project professionals”
Clive Powell, Middlesex University London, on “Project Management & Improvisation: Research findings from literature review and analysis of first cut qualitative data”
Dr Nigel Williams also from the Department of Leadership, Strategy and Organisations at BU and Karen will provide an overview of their work on Responsible Project Management.
And Daniel Nicholls, APM Research Manager, will provide an update on their latest research.
In addition, there will be opportunities for practitioners to share their project headaches and discuss issues with researchers and other practitioners. As last year, the event will conclude with a panel of experts sharing their views on a selection of pressing issues suggested by the audience, in an exciting BBC ‘Question Time’ style debate.
The event is free to attend but booking is required: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/creative-futures-in-projects-and-programmes-tickets-51241202817
We are organising a coach from BU. If you would like to reserve a place, you must email email@example.com BEFORE 1st November 2018.
On Wednesday, 10th October 2018, BU staff had an opportunity to find out more about current EU funding opportunities. Delivered by BU institutional representative in Brussels, Andreas Kontogeorgos, presentations covered such topics as Brexit, forthcoming ICT calls, COST Actions and MSCA Innovative Training Networks.
Presentations are now available on Brightspace. Please navigate to UKRO 2018 section to access all presentations.
If you have an interest in applying to Horizon 2020 and other European funding, please make full use of BU’s subscription by registering to receive updates from UKRO. On UKRO website, you can access subscriber-exclusive support materials including news, call fact-sheets and UKRO events.
BU staff considering applying for any of these calls and other international funding, should contact international research facilitator Ainar Blaudums or other RKEO’s representatives at their faculties, for further information and support.
We wrote about policy impact on this blog in May 2018. Since then we have continued to work with a number of academic staff across BU and with RKEO to support the development of policy impact. But it’s hard – not just for us, but for the academic staff involved.
What is policy impact? This is from the Cambridge University guide: “Making your research agenda and research findings relevant to policymaking in a way that has an impact on how policy is formed, implemented or understood.” And importantly the definition goes on “Whether and how this happens is something that researchers (or groups of researchers) can influence and manage.”. That’s the bit we want to talk about.
Why is it so hard?
- Because it takes a long time – and who has time to start long term projects?
- Because the effort required is disproportionate to the reward – at least in the short term
- Because the timing NEVER works
- Because politicians are only interested in the things they are interested in – which is not what you’re interested in
- Because politicians want short term results and have short attention spans – and research doesn’t work like that
All of these are probably true. The Cambridge University guide lists reasons to be involved in policy impact – the final one sums up these challenges: “To make your role more interesting and challenging”. It will definitely do that.
Over the last few months we have been privileged to work with staff on some internal projects responding to external requests – and we’ve learnt a lot. In May we wrote “…timing is everything and policy engagement is a two track process – the long term plan to engage those with long term, deep or personal interests in the relevant area, and the short term opportunistic engagement. The most important thing is to start now, including by preparing for the opportunistic engagement. If your issue suddenly becomes topical it will be much easier if you have prepared and don’t have to start writing overnight. And you’re more likely to be heard if people have heard about you and your research before.”. And remember our most important advice for this sort of engagement – to make it easy because no-one (externally) has to listen.
So what happens when we suddenly have to arrange a visit for an external VIP or send some representatives to a round table? We identify the theme or the purpose and then we talk to RKEO, think about the people we know, look at the M&C experts directory and ask around generally, to find the people who have the most relevant and interesting story to tell. And then we make all sorts of trouble for you. We need biographies and briefings for the VIP. We ask you to update your staff profile. We need you to customise your presentations for a lay audience and a 10 minute time slot. We want accessible and visual content, experiential content is even better. We make difficult requests for props and equipment. We need you to rehearse – sometimes not just for us but for representatives from the relevant Department as well, who add all sorts of additional requirements. We probably have to change the timing two or three times. And sometimes the VIP has a better offer or a political crisis comes up and we cancel everything at the last minute. It’s a nightmare.
And what’s the incentive? The visit will go well and the VIP is likely to talk about it in all sorts of situations afterwards. They love doing that – it shows that they are connected: “when I was at…”. They may put you in touch with other people in a way that leads to engagement or collaboration or helps Parliament recognise you as an expert in your field. They may have arrived with one perception of BU and leave with a different one. And there is a direct benefit for the individual academic staff too – because the material you produced is in the bank for next time – and you and we may be able to start using it more widely straight away. We usually follow up with the VIP afterwards. And we will know more about your work and will be better able to support you with policy related matters in the future.
It’s the same with select committee inquiries and government consultations. They come in with a short deadline (about three weeks). They ask questions that are nearly relevant to your research but not quite. They want evidence or responses in a particular format. It always clashes with a project deadline or teaching or marking. They take months to publish the responses – and when it’s evidence to a committee, it has to be an original submission that you have not used for anything else and that you can’t publish anywhere else until after they have published it themselves. They don’t follow up on most submissions. And government consultation responses often acknowledge, but then do not follow, the weight and direction of the responses.
So why should you drop everything to write a response or submit evidence? Because lots of people don’t. We find that often there are only half a dozen direct responses from universities to such things. Many universities rely on the sector bodies or societies to submit weighty responses on their behalf. And that is great, and they may be weighty and have a correspondingly important impact on the outcome. But what if we have something different or interesting to say? What if the committee or the Department is looking for voices that are outside the mainstream? You might only comment on one part of a larger set of questions but have evidence no-one else has. You might agree or disagree with the received wisdom on something but your view and perspective might make readers think twice about their assumptions. And it will get your name and your research out there – you might get called to give evidence or be quoted in the report or response, it may lead to contact in the future when people research the area.
And all of these are steps towards policy impact. So if you’re doing this stuff already, that is great. The people we have worked with at BU have been wonderful – patient, good humoured, responsive and impressive.
And with all this in mind we’d like to recognise, and thank, just a few of those we have bothered recently:
- Hamid Bouchachia
- Christos Gatzidis
- Zulfiqar Khan
- Peter Hills
- Peter Truckel
- Sarah Bate
- Elizabeth Falconer
- Jan Wiener
- Matthew Bennett
- Marcin Budka
- Tom Wainwright
- Vicky Isley
- Paul Smith
- Jian Chang
We’re very grateful. And we really believe that this will be a benefit for you and your work.
And if you’re not doing it, we’d like to add you to our list of candidates for the next opportunity. Please contact us and tell us how your work will make a difference to society and what is the change you want to see as a result of your work. And working with colleagues in RKEO and M&C we will do our best to help you navigate the nightmare and make steps towards seeing that change happen.
PS we have designed a practical workshop on influencing policy makers that you can try. Please contact us to discuss how you might use it.
PPS there are many others we should thank but the list would be too long, including other academic colleagues and colleagues from M&C, RKEO, Estates, IT and elsewhere. You’re all brilliant!

The research team at the National Centre of Post-Qualifying Social Work and Professional Practice are organising two separate events this year. These ESRC Festival of Social Science events will showcase recent research and best practice responses to supporting people with issues around sexual well-being and dealing with ageing and loneliness. Alongside key presentations there will be opportunities to think creatively about how both agencies can work together to build creative responses to tackle these issues.
The first event takes place on 5th November and will explore how good health and social care practices can support people with their sexual well-being. Speakers will consider the potential impact of a range of disabilities on sexual well-being and the types of support needed. In addition the law in relation to sexual expression will be discussed as well as thinking about achieving sexual well-being following sexual trauma. Time will be available to discuss the issues raised by speakers and participants. Click here to view the event page
The second event is on 7th November and builds on the very popular day held during last year’s Festival of Social Science on exploring creative ways to combat loneliness. Caring Canines will be returning this year by popular demand and the day will highlight activities to share with others including origami and a meditation and relaxation session. Speakers will explore current research about loneliness and financial scams and will include showing digital stories made as part of research investigating financial abuse from scams as well as digital games currently being developed. The event will also explore the role of social prescribing to combat social isolation and loneliness. This event is aimed at members of the public and professionals working in the area of ageing and loneliness. Click here to view the event page
