HCRI Landmark Lecture with Professor Lilie Chouliaraki (LSE): Mediating the Refugee Crisis
On Monday 03 October 2016, the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) held their annual Landmark Lecture, which provides a platform for discussion on topics relating to humanitarianism and disaster management. This year's Landmark Lecture was delivered by Professor Lilie Chouliaraki, a Professor of Media and Communication at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has written extensively on media ethics (particularly the problem of mediated suffering), digital journalism and human rights/humanitarian communication. The lecture focused on the dominant visual culture around the recent 'refugees crisis' in Europe. Drawing on a typology of relevant images across media, map out the field of visibility within which refugees become perceptible to European publics and examine the distinct forms of responsibility, which the refugees are associated with (monitorial, affective, activist, post-humanitarian). In conclusion, it raised questions about the capacity of these forms of responsibility to engage with refugees as human others and to promote a culture of care and solidarity, outlining alternative media practices that could possibly foster different visual cultures.

Intellectual life and the learning environment at Umass
Here is a look at the learning facilities and intellectual life at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Facilities like Du Bois Library, the many labs and ample areas to relax made it very pleasant to study here. As the video will show the Geography department is much smaller than at Manchester and as a result the classes were smaller and were based to a larger extent on student participation much like seminars in Manchester. This style of teaching was challenging to adapt to in the first few weeks but I became accustomed to it and enjoyed my time in these classes.
