Just wanted to pop in with a quick hello, and to share a few events around London that are of particular relevance to the NUWT…
1. Bishopsgate Institute Girls & Boys
Events from September-December, 2013
Bishopsgate Institute’s upcoming season, Girls & Boys, explores gender related issues:
This season Girls & Boys examines the changing nature of gender roles, what gender is, how we interpret our gender identity and gender equality.
Events include talks, walks, tours and music concerts. The entire calendar of events looks really interesting, and explores topics from the history of feminism, to lesbian fashion, to cross-dressing in Victorian England. I’ve booked tickets to attend the very-NUWT-relevant ‘March, Women, March: Voices of the Women’s Movement’ talk in October.
2. British Library Propaganda: Power and Persuasion
Exhibition runs until 17 September, 2013
The Propaganda: Power and Persuasion exhibition at the British Library takes a look at state propaganda around the globe. Since NUWT propaganda will be a predominant focus of our schools workshops, I’m looking forward to taking a look at this exhibition. Moreover, we are planning on using the BL’s Campaign! Make an Impact model for several of our workshops. More on that later! For the time being, from the BL website:
Propaganda: Power and Persuasion is the first exhibition to explore international state propaganda from the 20th and 21st centuries. From the eye-opening to the mind-boggling, from the beautiful to the surprising, posters, films, cartoons, sounds and texts reveal the myriad ways that states try to influence and persuade their citizens.
