Subtext 11: Small talk, big ideas, changing times
26 February 2010
Issue 11 of Subtext, the University’s award-winning magazine, is published today [Friday 26 February].
Although originally conceived as a magazine for staff, Subtext now has an international readership following its success in the CASE Circle of Excellence awards. It will appeal to anyone curious about the lives, personalities and work of academics and support staff at Bristol.
Issue 11 features a selection of people and stories from across the University, including:
- a brief tour of nanoscience and quantum information, courtesy of Professors Mervyn Miles and Jeremy O’Brien;
- a story of transformations large and small and how they helped to make Kemi Oladapo the Staff Development Manager she is today;
- an excursion into personal history via Peter Metelerkamp’s black-and-white photographs of white South Africa;
- a look at the hidden agendas of ‘escapist’ entertainment and what drew Dr Jutta Weldes to examine the narratives of Star Trek, the 9/11 attacks and the Kent State shootings.
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.
