Subtext 9: Money, gardens, pain, the Red Guard, Vivien Leigh... and two awards
25 June 2009
Subtext, the University’s magazine, has won two CASE medals, just as the Summer 2009 issue is published.
Subtext, the University’s magazine, has won two medals in the international Circle of Excellence Awards programme run by CASE, the US-based Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Subtext was selected for a gold medal in the Print Internal Audience Magazines category (having won a silver medal last year) and a silver medal in the Periodical Staff Writing for Internal Audiences category.
Although Subtext was conceived as an in-house magazine, it will also appeal to a more general readership and to anyone curious about the lives and work of academics and support staff at Bristol.
Issue 9 is published today and covers a variety of people and subjects, including:
- How Professor Yongjin Zhang progressed from the Red Guard to the directorship of the University's Centre for East Asian Studies;
- Why Lesley Dinsdale turned her back on research, only to end up co-ordinating the biggest-ever assessment of research at Bristol;
- What fascinates Professors Sally Lawson and Bridget Lumb about the mechanisms of pain, and how they deal with it when they're on the receiving end;
- What 'doing a spot of gardening' means when the person involved is Professor Timothy Mowl.
Copies of Subtext are distributed to staff with their payslips. Further copies are available on request. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact the editors (Nick Riddle or Hilary Brown). All issues of Subtext are also available online in PDF format.
