'Belmont House' by Aideen Monaghan: this exhibition of drawings & sketchbooks marks the culmination of Aideen's residency at the former Anatomy building, Belmont House, from May 2016 - August 2017.  With special thanks to Prof. Peter Dockery and all at Anatomy and the support of the university's Arts office.  October 15-26 (weekdays only) | 2.00pm - 6.00pm.  Free entry - all welcome.  Ramp and chair lift available.

Artist's statement: "I began my residency in the Anatomy Department on the 30th of May 2016.  I started by documenting various artifacts in the building through drawing.  These included beeswax models of the embryo and papier-mâché models of internal organs, which originated from the Auzouz factory in France.  I was also interested in the tension between the functional and historical elements of the building.  The lecture room predates the founding of the university.  It once formed part of a residence, Belmont house, which was owned by the Whalley family.  The front section of the house was demolished during the 1930s and was replaced by a flat roof building.  Renovations and adjustments have transformed the interior of the building since then.  However, cut stone passageways, which are now blocked up and redundant fireplaces are reminders of the past activities of the space.

I received generous assistance from Professor Peter Dockery and the staff of the Anatomy department.  I was also allowed access to the dissection room, histology slides and the process of their production.
The concept of making something invisible, visible, resonated with me, as the Anatomy department is a place that many generations have passed through and left their mark upon.  My work attempts to dissect the history of Belmont house and reveal the layers of human activity witnessed there".

It has long been recognised that perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide seldom carry out such atrocities on their own initiative. While such acts may not be formally approved by superiors, lack of oversight or tacit approval may implicate those in command or superior positions. Where crimes such a rape and murder are widespread, there is a greater onus on the commander of forces perpetrating such crimes to respond appropriately. The jurisprudence in relation to command responsibility remains “highly disputed” and sometimes inconsistent. The controversy of applying this mode of liability was particularly evident in the aftermath of the International Criminal Court Appeal Chamber’s decision in the Bemba case. The Court did at least confirm that the Rome Statute does not endorse the concept of strict liability. However, the Appeals Chamber’s decision seems, inter alia, to have raised the burden of proof threshold to establish command responsibility to a degree that may be almost impossible to meet in future cases. This talk examiners the doctrine of command or superior responsibility as defined by article 28 of the International Criminal Court Statute and interpreted by the Trial Chamber and Appeals Chamber. It outlines the background to the Bemba case and analyses the reasoning and inconsistencies between the decisions of each chamber in order to understand the implications for applying the doctrine in future cases.

All are welcome to attend.

The focus of the seminar will be on second-generation Irish return migrants from England. These are the children of those who left Ireland in the 1950s and who, as adults, have chosen to ‘return’. Drawing on the recollections of a small number of returnees, my research examines their experience of return migration in terms of their feelings of belonging (or not) in Ireland. Having grown up in Irish families in England and having visited regularly throughout their lives, I argue that the desire to return was an aspect of the habitus of the second-generation Irish in England. However the experience of return and the challenges which the individuals describe in terms of achieving a sense of belonging highlights the mechanisms by which habitus changes and evolves and the significance of emotion in this process.

All are welcome to attend.

Merle Hilbk

Chernobyl mon amour.

 

Five months in the contaminated zone
Talk and Slideshow

Chernobyl – the nuclear power plant in Western Ukraine became a synonym for the horrors of the atomic age, but also for the power struggles of the Cold War between the two political blocks and their ideologies. The catastrophe of Chernobyl became one of the major turning points in European history. For the German author and journalist Merle Hilbk, Chernobyl became also a turning point in her life: She spent several months in Belarus and Ukraine and was determined to find out how life was going on within the exclusion zone. In a book about her visit she describes the encounters she had in one of the most bizarre territories in Europe and how they changed her understanding of the world.

All are welcome

'Belmont House' by Aideen Monaghan: this exhibition of drawings & sketchbooks marks the culmination of Aideen's residency at the former Anatomy building, Belmont House, from May 2016 - August 2017.  With special thanks to Prof. Peter Dockery and all at Anatomy and the support of the university's Arts office.  October 15-26 (weekdays only) | 2.00pm - 6.00pm.  Free entry - all welcome.  Ramp and chair lift available.

Artist's statement: "I began my residency in the Anatomy Department on the 30th of May 2016.  I started by documenting various artifacts in the building through drawing.  These included beeswax models of the embryo and papier-mâché models of internal organs, which originated from the Auzouz factory in France.  I was also interested in the tension between the functional and historical elements of the building.  The lecture room predates the founding of the university.  It once formed part of a residence, Belmont house, which was owned by the Whalley family.  The front section of the house was demolished during the 1930s and was replaced by a flat roof building.  Renovations and adjustments have transformed the interior of the building since then.  However, cut stone passageways, which are now blocked up and redundant fireplaces are reminders of the past activities of the space.

I received generous assistance from Professor Peter Dockery and the staff of the Anatomy department.  I was also allowed access to the dissection room, histology slides and the process of their production.
The concept of making something invisible, visible, resonated with me, as the Anatomy department is a place that many generations have passed through and left their mark upon.  My work attempts to dissect the history of Belmont house and reveal the layers of human activity witnessed there".

This year’s Placemaking Symposium and Workshops will focus on the regeneration of Nun’s Island, led by NUI Galway with support from the urban design team at BDP, and the recent announcement of Galway City Council’s own Public Realm strategy. These two important initiatives will have a profound influence on the shaping and the future of Galway.

Join us for presentations and discussion in the morning followed by an afternoon of workshops on Nun’s Island, Galway’s Public Realm Strategy, and Placemaking in Towns and Villages.

The afternoon workshop on placemaking in towns and villages led by Simon Wall, town architect in Westport, will explore the experience of smaller communities in the west of Ireland and address the challenges and opportunities in shaping their future. Whether in the dramatic landscape which attracts visitors or the farmed environment supporting the local economy, the revitalisation of smaller towns and villages and their environs is of vital importance for the entire region.

 All are welcome to attend and participate!

Considering the first stage adaptation of her novel, Mary Shelley commented, “Frankenstein had prodigious success as a drama...it appeared to excite a breathless eagerness in the audience.” The first Frankenreads NUIG event sees Mel Brooks’s comedy classic takes on the lengthy stage and film history of Frankenstein and his monster. Gene Wilder plays the grandson of the original scientist, Peter Boyle the new Monster, and Marty Feldman the brain-dropping sidekick Igor. Scientist and monster take to the stage in top hat and tails for “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, answering the novel’s eternal questions about the nature of humanity, the boundaries of scientific progress, and whether it can really be pronounced Fronkensteen. This free screening will be accompanied by some light refreshments.

Frankenreads NUIG is a branch of Frankenreads, the international celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the novel for Halloween 2018 organised by the Keats-Shelley Association of America. It is also part of the EXPLORE initiative at NUI Galway, where students and staff collaborate to deliver their innovative ideas and projects. Featuring staff and students from English, Frankenreads is also supported by the university’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Project Fund and by the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies.

Every week staff, students and members of the local community come together to practice mindfulness i.e. present moment awareness, without judgement. 

 

Sessions are led by staff, students and members of the community who have been practicing meditation for many years, though are not necessarily teachers of mindfulness.  So while these sessions do not include instruction in mindfulness, they are suitable for people with no previous knowledge of mindfulness as well as those who have been practising for many years.
