At 4pm on Thursday 23rd November in the Theatre at Richmond Hill Campus The Centre for the Study of the State, Power, and Globalisation will be hosting Dr. Eunice Goes, who will be presenting on ‘Brexit: Why Britain Voted to Leave the EU’.
This book offers the first in-depth analysis of the relationship between art and design, which led to the creation of ‘pop’. Challenging accepted boundaries and definitions seeking out various commonalities and points of connection between these two exciting areas. Confronting the all-pervasive `high art / low culture’ divide, Pop Art and Design brings a fresh understanding of visual culture during the vibrant 1950s and 60s. This was an era when commercial art became graphic design, illustration was superseded by photography and high fashion became street fashion, all against the backdrop of a rapidly-evolving economic and political landscape, a glamorous youth scene and an effervescent popular culture. The book’s central argument is that pop art relied on and drew inspiration from pop design, and vice versa. Pop Art and Design provides a case study in the broader inter-relationship between art and design, and constitutes the first interdisciplinary publication on the subject. The book launch is on November 30th at 7pm in Asa Briggs Hall.

Richmond, The American International University in London is pleased to announce a one-day conference to be held at its Kensington Campus on 10th November 2017
(Lecture Theatre, 17 Young Street, London, UK, W8 5EH)
Despite the confusion and misconceptions about the term ‘critical thinking’, it is always listed as one of the main objectives Psychology graduates should meet upon completion of their degree. Its association with academic achievement and employability highlight the need for Psychology lecturers to embed it within the curricula they are responsible for; this is in line with the latest developments in the Higher Education landscape which put teaching and employability at the fore.
This conference brings together psychologists and Higher Education practitioners, all united by a mutual concern for the development of strategies that can improve shared understandings of critical thinking in the teaching of Psychology. The conference will focus on current debates in the field and will explore whether critical thinking can be incorporated in a more explicit way in the curriculum; the role of technology and innovative teaching methods in promoting such skills in Psychology students will also be discussed.
