Publishing students visit Bloomsbury

Students from the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies recently visited Bloomsbury plc at the invitation of Industry Advisory Board member and Deputy Managing Director of A & C Black, Jonathan Glasspool.

Becky Cook, a student on the MA in Publishing, reports on the day:

'To say that Bloomsbury is a well know publishing house is an understatement. For years they have been successful in trade fiction and non-fiction and have produced some of the best selling books in recent years. With the success of the Harry Potter series, Bloomsbury has become almost legendary, so when the trip to their offices in Soho Square was announced I jumped at the chance to visit.

WIRED: New Sounds from the Sonic Art Research Unit

NMC have released a series of new works developed as part of the Sonic Art Research Unit (SARU) project WIRED including works by Paul Dibley, Paul Newland and Paul Whitty from Oxford Brookes and Composers from Goldsmiths College, Keele University, University of Sussex, and Trinity-Laban. The project was developed in collaboration with harpsichordist Jane Chapman and explores the unique cultural resonance of the timbre of the instrument from its Sixteenth-Century origins to its appropriation by avant-garde composers of the Twentieth Century and beyond. Many of the works developed for the project explore the relationship between the instrument and live electronics that create a transformed soundworld for the instrument.

Post-War Italian Cinema: Dr. Daniela Treveri-Gennari

Post-war Italian Cinema: American Intervention, Vatican Interests (Routledge) by Dr. Daniela Treveri Gennari from Film Studies has just been published. The book investigates the decisive role that American production companies played in the development of the Italian film industry through an analysis of documentation from both the American State Department and the Vatican. A comparative analysis is proposed between American Political and Cultural Ideology and Roman Catholic Ideology in the post-1945 era alongside studies of policy-making and the development of regulations and procedures that affected the production and distribution of American and Italian films during the period.

Puzzle Films: Dr. Warren Buckland


Puzzle Films: Complex Storytelling in Contemporary Cinema (Blackwell) by Dr. Warren Buckland from Film Studies have just been published. The edited volume investigates a number of films that employ complex storytelling - from Memento, Old Boy and Run Lola Run, to the Infernal Affairs trilogy and In the Mood for Love. Professor Geoff King (Brunel University) describes the publication as ' A timely and insightful guide to some of the more complex and labyrinthine currents in recent cinema, drawing on an admirable range of examples from around the globe'. The collection unites American independent cinema and European and International Art film, and certain modes of avant-garde film-making on the basis of their shared storytelling complexity.
