Laura Onions and Emily Evans will explore Printing and Pedagogy.
Acording to Laura, "printmaking, writing and archival research are approaches through which I consider processes of reading and writing in relation to learning and feminist pedagogies. Most recently this has focused on histories of female educators who fostered a caring, holistic approach towards education
(Writing Otherwise: After Marion Richardson) and an exploration of
individual and collective experiences of reading and its relationship to print (The look of Reading 2019, A seat in which to Read, 2018) and its ability to communicate social and political contexts. I have been awarded funding by the University of Wolverhampton to produce a portable screen-printing table for use in community and research projects, which is currently under development."
Emily says "I
will be discussing my ongoing recent project Process, Production,
Community.The Risograph, Teaching and Learning in Higher Education Art
and Design. Over the last decade, Universities and Art
Schools across the UK and the world have been purchasing Risograph
Printers to use within their courses. I will be going
to look at some instances of how they are being used and some of the
impacts they may be having in an education setting"

Cass Research Seminars are a series of public conversations which enable
researchers to test and present their ideas in conversation with peers
and a broader audience. The sessions seek cross-fertilisation of ideas and provoke discussion. Typically, they consist of two to three presentations of 15 minutes each followed by chaired discussion.
We had a productive year in 2017/18. Presenters found that the session deepened their work and added unexpected avenues to their thinking. All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass.
