Origins, originality, and the privileges of nature179 6 Origins, originality, and the privileges of nature There can be little doubt that the University – indeed the entire infrastructure of all our educational institutions – has become a battleground in recent times. In extreme form, this affects jurisdictions beyond the UK much more negatively than it does here. Recently, we have seen academics being arrested and jailed in Turkey, for instance; we have seen students attacked in a whole series of places, including South Africa, Australia, and the USA.

’s fifteen local offices in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and South America, there is now a person responsible for communications. Similarly, over the past year, the CRC has created a unique program of training for ‘digital volunteer specialists’ across the organization. Falconer attributes the size and the originality of the program to established strengths of the organization: a network of volunteers who donate according to their individual experience and availability ( Glassford, 2018 ), as well as what she calls the ‘scalable’ nature of an organization

. It was in the mandate of Rockbrune’s service to see that copies of all published magazines and books made their way to the National Library of Canada, according to the law of legal deposit. All the while, he thought it important to keep his own sample of what was shipped. The originality of his collection resides in the preservation of publications and recordings in an order close to the way they were sent to educators, and in their association with a variety of less official documents, from posters to maps, subscription cards, teachers’ guides and bulletins, lists

The ‘Reset Ethics’ research explored the everyday ethical challenges of reconfiguring England’s NHS maternity and paediatrics services during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This ‘resetting’ created a unique context in which it became critical to consider how ethical considerations did (and should) underpin decisions about integrating infection control measures into the routine practice of healthcare. Ethical challenges encountered by decision-makers were often embedded in changes to working practices intended to keep staff safe, and to protect hospital communities from COVID-19 infection. However, these changes reduced healthcare professionals’ ability to ‘care’ for their patients, where care is understood as embracing the interpersonal relationships between the patient (and their family) and the healthcare provider. Offering such care was experienced as an ethically important dimension to healthcare delivery, and an essential component of patient-centred care. Research findings suggest that, although they protected healthcare staff and patients from COVID-19, infection prevention and control measures caused harm by creating barriers to relational interaction and engagement. Participants’ reflections are situated in a discussion about the significance of relationships in a healthcare context. The theoretical underpinnings of a logic of relationality in healthcare are described, which the authors argue should underpin healthcare decision-making. They contend that an explicit attention to relationships is required to support to healthcare professionals in responding both to the everyday stresses and strains of working in healthcare, and to the extraordinary impacts of a public health emergency.

printmaking (other than chronicles of technical practice) and a neglect of the medium in art theory and criticism. It is, as she put it, ‘an especially puzzling slight when the medium seems so accessible to debates surrounding notions of authorship, originality, social formation, [and] agency…that have dominated the critical discourse of western art since antiquity.’ 3 Where

seeing, the same things in different ways. Where does originality lie and what is its relationship to authenticity? These are the big questions; however, they are also questions that might best be pushed to one side while trying to work out your own approach, story and voice(s). Don’t be afraid to imitate, copy, steal! Writing is incremental, in the sense that writers’ key resources are the books that they grew up on, the books that they were and are most influenced by.

This book explores why Jack Clayton had made so few films and why most of them failed to find a large audience. It examines the kind of criticism they generated, sometimes adulatory but sometimes dismissive and even condescending. The book hopes to throw light on certain tendencies and developments within the film industry and of film criticism, the British film industry and film criticism in particular. The fact that Clayton's films fit David Bordwell's paradigm of the art film is one explanation why producers had difficulty with him and why mainstream cinema found his work hard to place and assimilate. Clayton's pictorial eye has sometimes antagonised critics: they often take exception to some aspect of his mise-en-scene. Clayton had come to prominence with Room at the Top, around the time of the British 'Free Cinema' movement and immediately prior to the so-called British 'new-wave' films of the early 1960s from directors such as Tony Richardson and John Schlesinger. Thorold Dickinson's evocation of the Russian atmosphere and, in particular, his use of suspenseful soundtrack to suggest ghostly visitation undoubtedly had an influence on Jack Clayton's style in both The Bespoke Overcoat and The Innocents. The critical controversy concerning the status of Jack Clayton as director and artist is probably at its most intense over The Pumpkin Eater. Clayton stressed the importance of an opening that established right away the situation of 'a woman in crisis' but wanted to delay the Harrods scene so as to build up an atmosphere of suspense.

victim. Men on the other hand do not grow up with the notion of themselves as potential victims, so when they write about it, it’s from the outside. 15 Writing from what you know has always been the foundation of fiction and character creation. However, it is where your imagination, and skill, takes you next that will determine originality and success as a crime writer.

particular the chapter will examine the originality and uniqueness of Machiavelli's views in relation to past and present political and ethical thought, and argue that, despite their notoriety, his ideas and Machiavelli's political philosophy 177 their attendant problems are a common feature both of political thought and practice and also of personal and political life.
