Social Media, Play and the Gift of Teaching

Open Lecture by Rosie Miles, University of Wolverhampton

This talk will introduce her adventures with Twitter on a 3rd-Year undergraduate Victorian Literature, Art and Culture module where the entire class joined Twitter for a week role-playing as characters from late-nineteenth-century texts.  

What can we learn from including play in higher education?  What can play subvert or challenge within the increasingly managed and monetized terrain of higher education?

Romantic Novels Seminar: Discussion of Thomas Love Peacock's Melincourt

The second of the ‘Romantic Novels 1817’ seminars is by Dr. Freya Johnston (Oxford) with a discussion of Thomas Love Peacock’s Melincourt.

Melincourt, is a vibrant satire of opinion where female novelists, female dialogue, and female education all feature prominently; the greatest joke in this novel of talk is that the hero, a chivalric orang-outang who strides triumphantly across a scene of human degeneracy, cannot speak at all.

A note on editions: Melincourt can be tricky to get hold of, in case anyone has difficulties tracking it down, there is a decent version of the whole novel available on google books here.

The session is free and open to the public, but for catering purposes, we would ask that you email us (reading1817@gmail.com) to let us know that you are planning to attend. 

To be held in Queen Anne Court, Room 063.
