The work, installed inside a 6,000 square foot former industrial warehouse, will explore the places in which she's lived: her current home now (in the first year she's lived alone), the childhood homes she was raised in (none of which still exist or belong to family through foreclosure, and a lack of generational wealth) and more abstractly, the primal living areas in which we all enter and navigate the world: her own body and her mother's body.
School District Five high school to expand, enhance computer science courses with Amazon Future Engineer
Spring Hill High School is one of more than 1,000 high schools across the country currently signed up for Amazon Future Engineer, a national program aimed at making computer science accessible to all students.
Amazon’s funding provides preparatory lessons, tutorials, and professional development for teachers, fully sequenced and paced digital curriculum for students, and live online support every day of the week for both teachers and students.
All students participating in this program will receive a free membership to AWS Educate which provides them with free access to computing power in the AWS Cloud for their coding projects and content to learn about cloud computing.
With a focus on real-world, applied learning experiences, AWS Educate offers young learners access to self-paced content designed to introduce cloud computing technologies that drive innovation in fields such as artificial intelligence, voice and facial recognition, gaming, medical advancements, and more.
Computer science is the fastest growing profession within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) field, but only 8% of STEM graduates earn a computer science degree, with a tiny minority from underprivileged backgrounds.
And, underprivileged students are 8 to 10 times more likely to pursue college degrees in computer science if they have taken AP computer science in high school.
Launched in November, 2018, Amazon future Engineer is a four-part childhood-to-career program intended to inspire, educate, and prepare children and young adults from underprivileged, underrepresented, and underserved communities to pursue careers in the fast-growing field of computer science.
Week 5 Updates
Following the tradition of the Durham Postgraduate colloquium, this Sixth Durham Postgraduate Conference in Translation Studies aims to provide a platform for postgraduate scholars in Translation and Interpreting Studies as well as related fields to present their research projects and exchange ideas with peers and more senior colleagues.
This can help us gain new insights into the study of the products, processes, and participants of translation and also address some of the main challenges faced by translation and interpreting studies as it shares border with various disciplines.
Taking this as a point of departure, the 8th biennial conference of the International Crime Fiction Research Group will aim to bring together researchers with a shared interest in exploring how the genre has changed and continues to change by way of such delicate infractions, but also occasionally by way of full-blown transgression and definitive ruptures.
As in previous years, we also welcome submissions that do not fall neatly within the above categories (or that expand them), and we are open to research questions that are themselves ‘infractional’ in respect of the critical paradigms that have grown around crime genre scholarship.
Submissions can be centred on crime fiction and/or film, but we also welcome submissions relating to true crime and that analyse other forms of media, as well as examinations of relevant topics within fields such as history, criminology, anthropology etc.
During the time between their first meeting in May 1836 and their wedding in February 1840, many letters crossed the Channel — from Britain to Saxony and back from Saxony to Britain — and most, if not all, were written in German, the language Victoria had learned from her mother as a little girl. Learners and lovers of German are invited to imagine one of these letters.
Put yourself in the shoes of Victoria or Albert (or both) and write a (pair of) letter(s) or creatively adapt one (or an exchange) of their letters as a mini-play, lyrics for a rap song (à la Hamilton), a (set of) poems(s) or similar. Does Albert share his thoughts with Victoria about moving to Britain and becoming part of her life?
Does Victoria tell Albert about Britain while contemplating their life together? The competition is open to students at secondary schools and Sixth Form Colleges, undergraduate and postgraduate students, German mother-tongue speakers, and anyone else who feels up to the challenge.
Applications are welcomed from colleagues in any of the areas of scholarly activity covered by the School, including Comparative Literature. This is an exciting role in a university which values the study of languages and cultures in the broadest sense. We are looking for someone with a real vision for the future of our discipline (again in a very broad sense), with leadership experience, and with an interest in developing people, programmes and research activity.
The programme is designed for humanities students working on comparative research projects who wish to broaden their knowledge of the discipline, and their use of comparative methodologies, in the light of both classical comparativism and more recent theoretical frameworks within the emerging discipline of world literature and the rise of the global South.
The summer school will bring together postgraduate students working in the various fields of comparative/world literature, introducing them to leading specialists in the discipline and offering them a valuable opportunity for both intellectual training and institutional networking. Programme The
