The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries shares an opportunity for University of Portsmouth academics. The Being Human applications for 2019 are now open, this is an opportunity to demonstrate research in the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.
Being Human returns in 2017 for its 4th year this November with the theme ‘Lost and Found’. The festival will run 17-25th November 2017 – applicants are invited to respond creatively and in ways that probe the rich intellectual possibilities of the theme.
Presenting a very different narrative, creative and cultural industries lecturer Tom Sykes will discuss Portsmouth’s role as a global city with close cultural and literary connections to Asia.
‘Engaging with the past’ is a monthly cultural heritage and public history reading group organised by Dr. Jessica Moody.
Described as a ‘world of sordid pleasure, unlimited vice, and lashings of booze, but a dangerous place too’, sailortowns were places where sailors often lived, visited and were entertained.
The event starts at Gallery Art Space Portsmouth where artist/filmmaker and historian Patti Gaal-Holmes will present her ‘Tea Project’ exhibition exploring aspects of the personal, political and collective histories related to the trade and migration.
The University of Portsmouth will be hosting Port City: Narratives of Migration as part of the 2015 Being Human Festival.
