Seminar: Of Mice and Pens - A discrete Choice Experiment on Assignment Systems in Economics

The interview is the scaffold for strong documentary. How does a filmmaker go about getting the best from an interview? Is it any different to the dialogue of the actor in drama? Do faction and fiction have the same rules? Is dramatic action better than narration? Telling stories is not just a question of recording what the protagonist does. It has nothing to do with following the protagonist around. It is as Eisenstein says “a succession of images juxtaposed so that the contrast between these images moves the story forward in the mind of the audience.” Or as David Mamet puts it “Let the ‘cut’ tell the story.”

The role of the director is to construct the shot list that makes up the ‘cut’ or the film (be it drama or documentary) and the unit the director is most concerned with is the scene. Through clips of Geraldine Creed's  work in both drama and documentary, she will discuss the scene and the idea that all direction should strive to be documentary filmmaking and be constructed in such a way that the technical execution is invisible.

Ms Creed said: "Filmmaking is not about the writer or director it is about what happens to the hero in pursuit of their goal. Geraldine Creed wrote and directed the feature film The Sun, Moon & Stars and Chaos/Deathgames. Since 2003, I have produced and directed over fifty hours of prime time documentaries. Subjects range from History, Religion, Mental Health, Environmental and Social issues (homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction) Arts and Culture and Reality TV format shows. My expertise is in showing an audience how extraordinary, ordinary lives can be."

As part of Galway Culture Night 2012, the NUI Galway Programmes in Drama and Theatre are delighted to present The Dubliners Dilemma, a new play by Declan Gorman Bachelor's Walk Productions.

Described as “Vivid” (Irish Times), “Remarkable” (Metro Herald), “Ingenious” (Mail on Sunday) and “a compelling performance” (Irish Theatre Magazine) Declan Gorman’s one-man tram-hurtle through James Joyce’s Dubliners became an immediate success on its premiere in Dublin this Summer. Set in 1914, the play shows how London publisher Grant Richards determined to re-read Joyce’s controversial manuscript, eight years after rejecting it over fears it might breach strict British and Irish obscenity laws.  As the racy, comic stories of Joyce’s childhood and young adult world spring to life around him, Richards relives his frustrating correspondence with the arrogant Irish writer. Should he risk everything now second time around and be the one to launch this volatile but brilliant genius on a world about to descend into the madness of war?

The Dubliners Dilemma will take place in the Bank of Ireland Theatre, NUI Galway on Friday, 21 September at 3pm. Entry is free, but on a first-come, first-served basis.

Speaker: Professor-Emeritus Stan Shapiro, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada  Part of the Institute’s Visiting Fellowship Programme.

For details visit http://www.nuigalway.ie/cisc/research/visiting_fellows_2012.htm

“What is and what ought to be the role of marketing in a world of increased ecological concern and resource shortages?” This question is the focus of what promises to be a thought-provoking presentation, and was the opening sentence in an article by the presenter, Stanley J Shapiro, first published in 1978 and republished in 2012 because of its relevance 34 years later.  In 1978 this question was prompted by the publication of a report by a group of researchers drawn from Mc Gill and Montreal universities (GAMMA) about the proposals of a Science Council of Canada study into the desirability and the feasibility of Canada becoming a conserver society rather than one emphasizing economic growth and ever increasing consumption.  

From a marketing perspective, Shapiro addresses seven questions, namely:• 

How would a conserver society differ from what we presently have?• Is the central problem in such a society limiting economic growth?

  • How did the GAMME report view consumer needs and need satisfiers?
  • What differences exist among GAMMA’s three conserver society prototypes?
  • How would a conserver society affect corporate marketing?
  • Are consumers willing to accept a “conserver ethos”?
  • Does a conserver society mean still more government intervention? 

Those attending are invited to read the article on which the presentation is based, available at http://sb.publisher.ingentaconnect.com/content/westburn/sb/2012/00000002/00000001/art0000

Professor-Emeritus Stan Shapiro, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada: A former marketing professor first at the Wharton School, then at McGill University and Simon Fraser University, Stanley J Shapiro also served as Dean of Business at Mc Gill (1973-1978) and SFU (1987-1997).  Between 1998 and 2003, he was a member of the Academic Council of the Open University of British Columbia.  Dr Shapiro then served for six years on the Province of British Columbia’s Degree Quality Assessment Board.  Stan Shapiro has authored sixty academic papers, edited 13 books or monographs and, over 25 years, has Canadianised nine successive editions of Mc Carthy & Perreault’s Basic Marketing.  He is a former editor of the Journal of Macromarketing, a past Governor and Distinguished Fellow of the Academy of Marketing Science and currently is an Associate Editor both of Social Business and the Journal of Historical Research in Marketing.  He has been a manuscript review for a dozen academic journals, including, for some thirty years, the Journal of Marketing, Marketing’s leading four star journal.

'The Engima of Frank Ryan' will be introduced by filmmaker Des Bell, followed by a public screening at 6.30pm.

A sympathetic but searching exploration of the life of Frank Ryan (1902- 1944) - Irish radical, International Brigade volunteer in Spain and Nazi collaborator in Berlin. Frank Ryan's life (born Limerick 1902, died Dresden 1944) remains an enigma. The teenage IRA volunteer, dissident republican and Spanish International Brigade volunteer, ended his life working for the Nazis in wartime Berlin. How could this be? The film employs the imaginative resources of the creative documentary to explore a human story of truly tragic proportions. We harness the power of the archival image in play with dramatic live action to to draw a contemporary audience into the core story centred on Ryan's split loyalties. The contradiction between his political beliefs and his dependence on Nazi hospitaity comes to haunt him. Drawing upon Ryan's letters and journalism This film illuminates the enigma that was Frank Ryan.

In the film, Nora, who is Bateson’s youngest child, depicts Gregory as a man who studied the interrelationships of the complex systems in which we live with a depth motivated by scientific rigour and caring integrity. Her portrayal of his work documents the vast – and continuing – influence Bateson’s thinking has had over a wide range of disciplines. Through contemporary interviews, along with his own words, Bateson’s way of thinking is revealed as offering practical approaches to the enormous challenges confronting the human race and the natural world. His theories, such as ‘the double bind’ and ‘the pattern which connects’, continue to impact the fields of anthropology, psychiatry, information science, cybernetics, urban planning, biology, and ecology, challenging people to think in new ways. This film sets out to show that his ideas are not just academic theory, but can help instruct a way of life. The film includes footage from Bateson’s own films shot in the 1930s in Bali (with Margaret Mead) and New Guinea, along with photographs, filmed lectures, and interviews. It inspires its audience to see their lives within a larger system – glistening with symmetry, play, and metaphor. Nora describes the film as ‘an invitation to ask the kinds of questions that could help thread the world back together from the inside’.

Technological advances have led to a rise in a variety of ways of delivering these in-semester assignments, most notably, the use of online assignment systems. Disciplines such as economics have already experienced a large increase in the use of online assignment services. While other studies have investigated the possible outcomes of varying these assignment systems, no robust study has been conducted to investigate what attributes of assignments (e.g. online or paper) are especially useful and valuable to students. The main contribution of this paper is to use a Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) to elicit students’ preferences for various possible attributes of assignment systems. After conducting the DCE on a sample of second year business majors our results indicate that students have the greatest preference for assignment systems that provide the greatest relevance towards the end of year exam and also provide a high level of feedback. Our results also indicate that there is a high degree of heterogeneity within the student cohort in their preferences towards various attributes of assignment systems with some students willing to pay over €180 for assignment systems that have a high level of exam relevance while others only willing to pay €30.

This paper is a think piece on the place of women in academia today. Whilst the entry of women into higher education is an achievement to be celebrated and women have certainly made their mark on the academy, this is not a simple success story. There is a significant body of feminist research that highlights the ways in which the cultures and practices of universities, and constructions of academic subjectivity, are gendered as well as classed and radicalised. From the traditional university to the neoliberal academy in austere times, gender is, perhaps, rather more 'done' than 'undone'. I draw on recent research with academics in the UK to consider the ways in which contemporary policies, discourses and technologies produce gendered subjects, with a particular focus on the affective. My intention is to provoke a discussion about the implications for women in the academy today and the possibilities for change.

Artist David Hepher will talk about his art practice which he describes as follows: "I think of myself as a landscape painter and as I live in the city, I paint the city. I try to achieve a balance between the physical materiality of the buildings and the painted appearance of them. An interaction between the rough cast concrete and net curtaining and the stories that can be told by the 'found' graffiti and scribbles on the walls." Further information at: www.tulca.ie

You are invited to our 4th National Social Marketing Conference entitled Behaviour Change, Social Change and Societal Change, in association with the Institute for Business, Social Sciences and Public Policy at NUI Galway. It brings together two renowned behaviour change experts, Professor Rebekah Russell-Bennett from Australia and Matthew Wood, Brighton University, UK, along with 4 Irish showcases, to demonstrate Behaviour Change, Social Change & Societal Change.
 
This conference is “about listening to and learning with the people we want to work with, whether we term them clients, target groups or citizens - is the core of behaviour, social & societal change.  Values lie at the heart of this endeavour and invites us to work together to understand each other as ‘feelers’, ‘thinkers’ and ‘doers’. It also requires us to cut across the traditional government, non-profit and commercial sectors and empower and energise people to become the authors of their own fate, whilst simultaneously encouraging contextual change that will help them to do so. Only in this way, will the individual and collective effort create significant and lasting change. Given the problems now facing the world, never has this been a more important task”.

Seminar: Interdisciplinary Science – a new approach to undergraduate curricula

Professor Derek Raine is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Leicester and is well-known for his work in science education, pioneering the use of PBL, computer-based teaching and a range of other curricular innovations. He is a holder of the Institute of Physics’ Bragg Medal and is the Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Science and its ‘Integrated Science’ degree programmes. Integrated Science represents a radical redesign of a science curriculum that disregards disciplinary boundaries and which has a strong focus on enquiry based learning and exposes students to research-like activities from the outset. This approach has been recognised and supported by the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry and makes use of a range of designated teaching facilities and laboratories.

Prof. Raine will give an overview of the approach, describe the progress of the programme and open up discussion on issues around curricular design for the contemporary age. This discussion will be of relevance to many different disciplines and fields and not just science.

Europe is in the midst of a restructuring wave caused by the layered effects of global economic shift, the 2008 global financial crisis and the 2010 Eurozone sovereign debt crisis. Further job losses and organisational changes can be expected in 2013, especially in the automotive and steel sectors, but also in telecommunications, financial services and the public sector.
 
Using a model of restructuring comprising five inter-related dimensions (financial, industrial, institutional, organisational and technological) the distinctive effects on work and workers of each dimension will be explored in turn before considering more general effects such as job losses and work intensification which may arise as a result of various restructuring initiatives.
 
Drawing on evidence from diverse sectors during different historical and geographic settings, it will be argued that there is sufficient evidence of generic, although not necessarily universal, tendencies towards a degradation of employee health and well-being associated with the insecurity and change generated by restructuring.
 
The roles of different stakeholders will also be discussed, not only employers, trade unions and governments, but also those involved in health provision and initiatives to support individuals facing insecurity in the labour market. Evidence from France suggests that there is a wide range of potential support but insufficient multi-agency cooperation, which if developed further could lead to more efficient and effective targeted intervention.
 
Despite the policy rhetoric of ‘more and better jobs’ from the Lisbon Strategy to Europe2020, in the current economic context, there is a very real risk that job creation will take precedence over improving job quality and this will inevitably have continued adverse implications for worker well-being.

Switch delivers straight answers to today’s most controversial energy questions, as energy visionary Dr Scott Tinker travels the world, exploring leading energy sites from coal to solar, oil to biofuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film.


He seeks the truth from the international leaders of government, industry and academia, then cuts through
the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.


This screening is part of over 250 universities across the country participating in the GSA Switch Energy Awareness & Efficiency Program, which launched last Autumn at over 40 pilot schools with a student ambassador program, efficiency drive and screening of the film.


The event is free to attend and is open to the public.

Dr Riana O'Dwyer (English) will give the second public lecture in our Series.  All are welome

 
County Galway was the homeplace of two distinguished Irish playwrights in the twentieth century: M.J. Molloy (1917-1994) and Tom Murphy (born 1935). Many of their plays draw on the lives and historical experiences of those living in the north-east of the county, between Tuam, Milltown and the Mayo border. Their work was produced for the wider Irish public by the Abbey Theatre and Druid Theatre Company, but also by the Amateur Drama movement, which was active in every corner of the country through the agency of local theatre groups. This lecture will address the important contribution each of these writers made, through consideration of some of their influential plays, including Molloy's The Wood of the Whispering (1953) and Murphy's Famine (1968).

Facilitated by Professor Jean McNiff, Independent Researcher
Event Details This event is a full-day workshop and will address issues regarding the principles and practices of action research, and how it differs from other approaches to research. The workshop will examine aspects of the research process such as developing research questions, collecting data and generating evidence, as well as the key issue of how to make judgements about the quality of action and research, and how to test the validity of knowledge claims. It will also consider how to write up your action research and make it public for wider use. The workshop will be interactive throughout, so be prepared to participate and have some fun.
 
Professor Jean McNiff is an independent researcher who works in a wide variety of settings, including the community and voluntary sector, schools, colleges and universities. She holds a part-time position as Professor of Educational Research at York St. John University in the UK and Visiting Professorships at the University of Tromsø, Norway, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa, and Beijing Normal University and the Ningxia Teachers’ University, People’s Republic of China. In describing her work, Professor McNiff says “The main thing I try to do is share workable ideas in a way that enables people to say to themselves, ‘I can do this too’”.

This talk will look at the Flow Country of Caithness and Sutherland which is by far the UK’s largest single peatland region, comprising flat-lying, bog-pool systems similar to those found in Finland, Estonia and Siberia. Currently there is a huge interest in the effective management of peatlands as carbon stores and in minimising both aqueous and gaseous exports from damaged peatlands.

Speaker: Benjamin Newland

Ben received his bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences from Durham University in 2003. After secondary school teaching for two years, he then started a research career and received a Master’s degree in Nanomaterials from Imperial College London in 2008. He came to NUI Galway to pursue a PhD in Gene Therapy for Parkinson’s disease. His work has been supervised by Prof. Abhay Pandit and co-supervised by Dr. Eilis Dowd and Dr. Wenxin Wang. Ben’s doctoral research focussed on the development of non-viral in vivo and ex vivo gene delivery methods for applications in Parkinson’s disease. A non-viral transfection vector was developed and analysed in the rat brain, along with the ability to deliver genetic materials to stem cells prior to implementation in the rat brain. Ben has authored four journal articles (Biomaterials, JACS, Chem Comm(2)) and has been a co-author in six others. He has also presented his work in several key conferences.

Gabriela Seidlová Málková (MA., Ph.D.) is working as a lecturer and senior researcher at the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Humanities and Faculty of Education, Department of Psychology. Her research interests are within a field of developmental, cognitive and educational psychology. She is interested in social and cultural approaches to understand learning and thinking. Her field research is mainly devoted to studying precursors to early literacy development, and development of phonological and early reading and spelling skills.

Gabriela’s presentation will introduce a theory of mediated learning experience and identify inspiring aspects of this theory and relation to mentoring practices. Mediated learning is based on research and clinical experience of Reuven Feuerstein (Israeli psychologist who is well-known for his work and research with immigrants and handicapped children). Feuerstein's theory is known as a socio-cultural approach to understand development of thinking and learning. Its most important and inspiring parts are devoted to description of critical qualities of interaction between adults and children that have a potentiality to produce changes in the structure of cognitive skills, thinking and behaviour. Especially this aspect of Feuerstein work is very useful for any strategies or models where we need to understand mechanisms of a child development within its family and any other social systems.

The final Exponential, an NUI Galway funded event which allows the public to meet start-up founders, students, techies and entrepreneurs in a fun and casual way, will take place in Kelly’s Bar on Tuesday, 19 March at 7.30pm. Guest speaker for the final will be Barry O’Sullivan, Senior Vice President at Cisco Systems and one of the new “Dragons” on RTÉ’s Dragon’s Den show. Over the past four months, Exponential has given hundreds of students the opportunity to meet some of Ireland’s technology start-up companies and innovative entrepreneurs, to share ideas, and to learn how some NUI Galway graduates started their own business, right out of college. The final event will centre around a “fireside chat” with one of Ireland’s top technology leaders, Barry O’Sullivan. As well as his role as SVP at Cisco, he is a technology investor and co-founder of the Irish Technology Leadership Group (ITLG), a network of Irish and Irish American technology leaders. Some of the topics for discussion on the night will include Barry’s take on how he found the whole Dragon’s Den experience, how start-up companies should go about getting funding, and some advice for people on what to do, and not to do when starting with their business model. Throughout the night, students and other attendees will be able to interact with other start-up company founders, speak to potential employers, and learn what it takes to develop a business idea, form a team, raise finance, set up and run a company. Those who already have a novel idea for a product or business can share their idea and get advice and feedback from fellow students and other entrepreneurs. This is a free event, open to all, but you do need to register at http://exponential4.eventbrite.com/ or via the Exponential website at http://exponential.ly/ Exponential is a project undertaken as part of the NUI Galway/Students’ Union EXPLORE initiative.

Geopolitics & Justice Research Cluster

Geography 50 Year Anniversary Symposium

 

To mark the 50th anniversary of Geography at NUI Galway, the Geopolitics and Justice Research Cluster will host a symposium on Friday, March 22nd, in the Moore Institute. The Geopolitics and Justice cluster unites interests that seek to critically interrogate practices of interventionism, development and securitization in our contemporary world along with their consequent contested forms of governmentality and justice. A common research concern lies in theorising and insisting upon more humane, nuanced and critical human geographies, and in considering urgent issues of economic, environmental and social justice.
 
The symposium will include overviews of current cluster research which spans key global issues respecting geopolitics and security, structural injustices and poverty, humanitarianism and human rights, environmental and social justice, and hunger and food security. The cluster’s broader public academic concerns of civic engagement, field-based learning, and public geographies and representation will also feature. To this end, the day sets out to combine academic speakers from Geography, History and Politics with development practitioners from Irish Aid, Christian Aid and NUI Galway’s Community Knowledge Initiative, who will all address shared concerns of interventionism, development and justice.
 
Student presentations from Geography’s MA in Environment, Society and Development on the theme of ‘transformative geopolitics and justice’ will also form a key element of the proceedings, and signals the importance of a vibrant graduate research community integrally feeding into the enterprise and ongoing development of our research cluster. Finally, we are delighted to have as plenary speaker from the School of Geography and the Centre for the Study of Global Security and Development at Queen Mary, University of London, Dr Simon Reid-Henry.
 
A full schedule of the day's proceedings will appear in advance on the Geopolitics & Justice hompage in Geography:

The sports film has become one of commercial cinema's most recognizable genres. From classic boxing films such as Raging Bull (1980) to soccer-themed box-office successes likeBend it Like Beckham (2002), the sports film stands at the interface of two of our most important cultural forms. This book examines the social, historical and ideological significance of representations of sport in film internationally, tracing the history of the sports film, from the beginnings of cinema in the 1890s, its consolidation as a distinct fiction genre in the mid 1920s in Hollywood films such as Harold Lloyd’s The Freshman (1925), to its contemporary manifestation in Oscar-winning films such as Million Dollar Baby (2004) and The Fighter (2010). Drawing on an extensive range of films as source material, the book explores key issues in the study of sport, film and wider society, including race, social class, gender and the legacy of 9/11. Table of Contents: Introduction: Why Sport and Film? Chapter 1: Reading the Sports Film Chapter 2: Early Cinema and the Emergence of the Sports Film Chapter 3: The Sports Film Genre Chapter 4: ‘Truths that tell a lie’: Race, Social Class and the American Dream in the Sports Film Chapter 5: Gender and the Sports Film Chapter 6: The Sports Film, National Culture and Identity Conclusion: 9/11 and the Contemporary Mainstream Sports Film Sport and Film will be launched by Dr. Philip Dine on Monday, 29 April at 5.30pm in the Huston School of Film & Digital Media, NUI Galway, and all are welcome.

Seolfar an chéad eagrán den iris phiarmheasúnaithe nua Léann Teanga: An Reiviú ag 5:30 ar an 1 Bealtaine 2013 san Aula Maxima Íochtarach in OÉ Gaillimh. Eascraíonn An Reiviú as togra acadúil a bhí mar chuid den chúrsa MA sa Léann Teanga le hAcadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge. Baineann An Reiviú leis na réimsí éagsúla teanga seo: an t-aistriúchán, an tsochtheangeolaíocht, an teangeolaíocht, agus an teagasc teangacha. Is í seo an chéad eagrán den iris, ach foilsiúchán bliantiúil a bheas ann, agus táthar ag súil go mbeidh sí ina glór tábhachtach in Éirinn agus ar fud an domhain sa dioscúrsa teanga. Tá foireann na hirise dóchasach freisin go mbeidh An Reiviú ina acmhainn luachmhar do lucht acadúil na Gaeilge agus don lucht acadúil trí chéile. An tOllamh Nollaig Mac Congáil, Meabhránaí agus Uachtarán Ionaid OÉ, Gaillimh, a sheolfas an iris go hoifigiúil. Beidh fáilte roimh chách.

Digital Depression: the Crisis of Digital Capitalism The economic downturn of the early 1970s engendered massive, sustained corporate investment in ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies,) as a many sided attempt to renew profitable growth. Core components of this response included financialisation, the restructuring of the production system, and the recomposition of the communications industry as a leading site of economic dynamism. The vaunted ‘Information Age’, however, turned out to herald a new and deeper financial-economic crisis - a digital depression with which we continue to live. How may the newly contentious geopolitics of information play out? May we expect the communications sector to reprise its earlier role in renewing growth and profitability? 2.30 on Tuesday 7th May, Main Room Huston School. Rosa Luxemburg's Internet? Both the state and capital have been crucial for the evolving political economy of the Internet. Drawing on the thought of the Polish Marxist Rosa Luxemburg, We should inquire as to how states are supporting commodification projects built around the Internet; how they are contending with one another in this process; and how communication processes are related to the historical reconstitution of the global working class. Professor Dan Schiller is a historian of information and communications at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The author of half a dozen books and many research articles, he has written extensively on the development and current structure of digital capitalism—the system of market relationships that is predicated increasingly on networks. His current research focuses on the role of information and communications in today's financial/economic crisis, and on the history of U.S. telecommunications infrastructures.

Professor Rudi Roose, Ghent University, Belgium Biographical Details: Rudi Roose studied Educational Sciences and Criminology at Ghent University in Belgium. He worked as a frontline worker and as a manager in different child protection services and obtained his PhD is Educational Sciences with an action research on youth care. He is currently professor in social work at Ghent University and part-time professor in Criminal justice Social Work at the Free University Brussels, Belgium. As in other Western countries, social work in Belgium can be seen as under pressure from managerialistic discourses, 'evidence based' policy guidelines and cut backs on investments in the welfare state. As a countermovement, we also see an increase of practices of resistance seeking a way out of this dominant discourse and trying to go back to the core of ‘real social work’. In this lecture, I want to go deeper into this development of resistance by explaining current trends and problems. I also want to problematize this development, as what is considered 'real social work' is often defined on the level of the relationships with clients, rather then on the socio-political level. I argue that for this repolitization to occur, we need to radicalize or understanding of the ‘right to welfare’. In Belgium, the 'right to welfare' was installed in law in 1976 and this can be seen as a landmark in the shift from a residual to a structural welfare approach. However, currently this law is interpreted in a minimalistic rather than a maximalistic way. I argue for a revitalization of the importance of this law and the role of social workers – in Belgium and abroad - as interpreters of ‘living rights’ in order to repoliticize social work and go beyond a relational approach.
