Research Data Management in Art and Design
Thursday 11th December
University of the Arts London is holding a one day conference on Research Data Management in Art and Design – ‘Where are we now?’
The conference will be an opportunity to learn about how data management is being addressed in the unique fields of Art and Design from the perspectives of the Arts and Humanities Research Council, University Research and Data Managers, and the Researchers themselves.
Dr David Simmons, a researcher and lecturer in American Literature, Film and Screen Studies here at the University of Northampton, has recently published a new book, focusing on American horror author, H.P. Lovecraft.
New Critical Essays on H.P. Lovecraft offers an exciting investigation of this significant writer’s works and influence. In the collection, a range of noted scholars, novelists and writers take a multidisciplinary approach, exploring Lovecraft’s life, his most beloved stories and his continuing presence in popular culture.
Dr Simmons has recently been interviewed about his book by one of the UK’s leading horror websites, Twisted Tales and you can read more about him on the University’s News page. Published by Palgrave, Dr Simmons book is available from all good booksellers.

Dr Andermahr and Dr Allwork’s Santander Funded visit to the University of Zaragoza ‘Acts of Remembrance’ Conference (24-26 April 2013)
Last week, Dr Andermahr and Dr Allwork gave papers to the University of Zaragoza ‘Acts of Remembrance’ conference, organised by Constanza del Rio Alvaro and Maite Escudero Alias. In a panel dedicated to ‘Agency, Trauma and Memory in British Women Writers’, on Wednesday 24th April, Dr Andermahr addressed the audience with her paper on trauma in Jeanette Winterson’s ‘Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?’ while fellow Winterson scholar Susana Onega (University of Zaragoza) spoke on ‘Class, Trauma, Shame and Spectrality in Sarah Waters’ The Little Stranger. Speaking to the conference on the same day in a panel on ‘Holocaust Memories’ with Christoph Houswitscka (Bamberg University, Germany) and Rudolf Freiberg (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany), Dr Allwork talked about trauma and researching and writing the histories and memories of the Holocaust. Both Andermahr and Allwork’s papers were well received, reinforcing our academic partnership with the University of Zaragoza’s Research Group in Contemporary Narratives in English and raising the international profile of the University of Northampton.
