But due to the massive growth this industy has seen in recent decades, cruising has become much more accessible. Should you consider a cruise for your next vacation? Here are ten reasons to go for it:   1. Wake Up Each Morning in a Different Port   Hotel-based vacations cannot compete in this area. On a cruise, your "hotel" floats from place to place allowing you to see many points of interest on a single trip. There's nothing quite like going to sleep in Antigua and waking up in St. Thomas. Just one cruise will leave you feeling like an experienced traveller.   2. First-Class Food   Cruising is perhaps best known for the food. And believe me, the food has a well-deserved reputation. From 'round-the-clock buffets to elegant dining halls to specialty restaurants, your options are overwhelming. But be watchful for cruise lines that seem to be cutting corners in the food department — I was personally underwhelmed on a recent Norwegian cruise. Read other travellers' cruise reviews ahead of time to know what to expect. I can personally vouch for Disney and Princess cruises!   3. Plenty of Fun in the Sun   Most cruises set sail to tropical destinations, where warm sunny weather is the rule. Just make sure to bring lots of sunscreen. In addition to the ship's pool(s) and sun deck, you'll have opportunities to take in breath-taking beaches at your stops. Several of the major cruise lines operate their own private islands, which are geared almost exclusively to beach activities. Have no fear–sun-phobics will have plenty to do if they remain onboard or choose try out non-beach excursions.   4. Great Entertainment   Vegas-style shows, comedians of all kinds, game shows, music and dancing, you name it. Cruise ships offer it. A highlight aboard the Norwegian Dawn is the Cirque du Soleil-style dancing and acrobatics show, while the Disney Magic offers up a different comedian every night working a different genre, from straight stand-up to juggling to ventriloquism. Every night there is something to suit anyone's tastes. You'll get a daily newsletter delivered to your cabin each day listing times and locations of every show.     5. Meet New People   Most cruises still follow the traditional dinner dining schedule, meaning your party is assigned a table at a specific time every night. Unless your party takes up an entire table, you will be seated with other travellers. Many new friendships are formed in this way. Do not worry, though, if you are a more private person. Some cruise lines have broken out of the traditional dining mold and allow parties of any size to dine privately at the time of their choosing–even tables for two are available. Princess and Norwegian both offer this new style. However, many cruise-goers find they enjoy the company of their fellow travellers. Carnival, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and others remain traditional.   6. See Exotic Wildlife   Whether it's whales and seals in Alaska or stingrays and tropical birds in the Caribbean, one highlight of many people's cruises is the interaction with local wildlife. On my last cruise, I had the pleasure of swimming amongst beautiful tropical fish. These experiences will leave a long-lasting impression of your trip!   7. Shopping Deals Abound   When you're out of your home country, taxes no longer apply–that is, up to a certain point. Cruise travellers find great deals on jewely, alcohol, designer accessories, and more. Once aboard your cruise, you will be provided with information about limitations that apply. You're likely to find that your cruise ship lists recommended vendors and offers greater buyer protections when you shop at these establishments. Attend the onboard shopping seminars if you have any questions.   8. Enjoy 5-Star Service   Expect nightly turn-down service and mints on the pillow. Expect a head waiter, assistant waiter, and possibly a sommelier to attend to your every need at dinner. Expect random cruise staff to greet you and offer assistance for anything you may need. As Celebrity Cruise Line says, expect to be treated like royalty. This is part of the cruise experience.   9. No Flying (Maybe)   Most metropolitan areas near the coast are within driving distance to ports where cruise ships sail out from. If you hate to fly but are lucky enough to live near a cruise port, you're set! However, if you do have to fly to your cruise, consider making your own flight arrangements rather than selecting a package deal through the cruise line. This can save you hundreds of dollars. Just be sure to give yourself ample time to account for the chance that your flight is delayed.   10. Because You Deserve It!   This is what it ultimately comes down to. You work hard all year long, don't you deserve a little indulgence? With prices dropping the way they have, the deals are out there. So take a week off to recharge and rejuvenate–you'll be glad you did!   There are more reasons to cruise than these ten, of course. Gaming in the onboard casino, exotic spa treatments, karaoke competitions, champagne art auctions, wine and martini tasting, midnight chocolate dessert buffets, sunsets from your balcony, and afternoon tea are some more ways to pass the time while you travel. You'll have an unforgettable time. Happy cruising!

Conference: Reputations, Legacies, Futures
Event on 2017-07-13 10:00:00
Reputations, Legacies, Futures: Jane Austen, Germaine de Staël and their contemporaries, 1817-2017 #AustenStaël July 1817 saw two deaths – of Jane Austen, an English novelist with a solid but relatively modest success, and of Germaine de Staël, a long-standing superstar of pan-European intellectual, political and literary life. Over the two centuries since, the relative reputations of these two writers have re-aligned in ways that would have astonished their contemporaries, admirers and critics alike. This joint anniversary provides an unrivalled opportunity to bring scholars together to reflect on the connections, continuities, and contrasts between these two writers’ careers both in their lifetimes and after, and to think about the waxing and waning across Europe and beyond of the literary reputations of eighteenth-century and Romantic-period women writers more generally. Organising committee: Dr Gillian Dow (Executive Director of Chawton House Library and Associate Professor in English at the University of Southampton) Professor Catriona Seth (Marshal Foch Professor of French Literature, All Souls’ College, Oxford University) Professor Nicola J Watson (Professor of English Literature, Open University)

Beppe Gambetta

Beppe Gambetta
Event on 2017-06-10 19:00:00
Join us for our last concert of the spring: Beppe Gambetta, whose music bridges two continents. From his unique background as an Italian musician in love with both American roots music as well as the music of his native country, Beppe has travelled the world and even crossed the “Iron Curtain” to dazzle and charm music enthusiasts everywhere. After eleven CDs, DVDs, teaching books and collaborations with many other top-flight musicians, Gambetta is one of the true live master innovators of the acoustic guitar. While Beppe still lives in his native Genova, he travels to North America at least three times each year. His reputation in the U.S. and Canada is reinforced by his participation inprestigious festivals like the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, Merlefest in North Carolina, the Four Corners Festival in Colorado and Canadian Folk Festivals in Winnipeg and Edmonton, as well as events like the radio shows “All Things Considered” and “E-Town.” Beppe has performed in the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. He has performed with David Grisman, Gene Parsons, Doc Watson, Norman Blake and with the band Men Of Steel: an international guitar summit (Dan Crary, Tony McManus and Don Ross) of different guitar schools with complex musical interactions. Beppe's music is a "koiné" (fusion) of American root music and Ligurian tradition, emigration songs and folk ballads, steel string guitars and vintage harp guitars not only co-exist but interact, weaving a deep dialog unaware of any rigid classification.

The one hour Diversity Special

The one hour Diversity Special
Event on 2017-05-18 17:30:00
Successful organizations have their Diversity, Inclusion and Equity function positioned strategically and high enough in the organisation and its practitioners have enough autonomy and resources to do it well. There has recently been an explosion of diversity and inclusion work across Victorian workplaces and an emerging wave of diversity practitioners and consultants. With this comes new and emerging practices, ‘bold moves’, fad strategies, buzz words, overhauls or refreshes and ‘champions of change’. Because diversity challenges our deeply ingrained core beliefs about gender, disability, race, age, pregnancy and LGBTIQ, it can be difficult to shift hearts and minds. With this in mind: How do you stand out from the crowd? How do you decide on what to prioritize? How do you prove that your strategies are working? How do you make your case and get attention? How do you influence others and give them reason to act? How do you persuade people that change is happening and that it is good change? How do you ensure that the work has integrity, depth and is authentic? How do you manage expectations and juggle mutiple tasks? This session will help you to design, refresh, strengthen and reposition your diversity & inclusion thinking and practice with a clear narrative, rationale and authenticity. If this resonates, then this one-hour special is for you. Event summary 5:30 – 6:00 pm Arrival and networking (coffee & tea on premises)6:00 – 6:50pm Presentations6:50 – 7:00pm Q & A7.00 – 7.30pm Discussion for those who wish to stay back to chat with the presenters and other participants (optional) Come hear about: What’s at the core of the work, including the legal, business and social responsibility case What your organization is trying to achieve with your D&I strategy Streams, themes, and the culture piece___________________  The big picture and the sum of the parts  Your approach – managing expectations, mainstreaming and unique challenges Incremental versus bold moves Some of the key issues that block D&I or make it thrive___________________ Shallow strategies versus those that address systemic issues   The complexity and connections between different evidence (data sets) How to get people excited about diversity and inclusion and avoid cynicism Take away resources to be provided to participants: A sample three-year Diversity and Inclusion framework A list of ten things to do right now to make your organisation more inclusive Invitations to follow up workshops targeting specific areas (EEO, ALLY, Complex Issues, etc.)  Is this your current checklist of diversity practice within your organisation? Clumsy diversity narrative; Cynicism; Diversity blind practices; Complacency; Diversity fatigue; Homogenous leadership; Ineffective EEO training; Inflexible and inconsistent practices; Lack of male engagement in gender initiatives; Limited resource; Little accountability; No critical mass at the leadership level; No groundswell of activity; No KPI’s on diversity performance; No self-initiation; No sense of urgency; No transparent or longitudinal evidence; Poor leadership; Resistance; Rhetoric not matching reality; Self-interest; Spin; A spike in discrimination and sexual harassment complaint; Your D&I function has minimal staff; Your gender equity people and diversity strategists buried a few layers down in your organisational structure. This session will help you to reposition your diversity & inclusion agenda. Speakers: Roman Ruzbacky – is an experienced diversity and inclusion practitioner, facilitator, complaints handler and former analytical chemist. He has worked extensively in the design and implementation of diversity and inclusion frameworks and strategies that have resulted in positive business and cultural outcomes. Roman is one of the few male diversity practitioners in Australia who specializes in gender equity. Roman is also Vice President of the Equal Employment Opportunity Network. Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity need to be a lived and breathed experience.  Moira Rayner – is a practising lawyer, particularly in the high-risk area of managing workplace behaviors, conciliator, mediator, educator, social commentator and human rights advocate. Moira Rayner is best known in Victoria as its last Commissioner for Equal Opportunity. She has also been the Acting Deputy Director (Research) of the Australian Institute of Family Studies; a Hearings Commissioner of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, and worked with major employers, universities, and government departments.  Throughout her career Moira has been and remains committed to the principle that every person has and should be able to exercise fundamental human rights at any age, whatever their personal characteristic such as social origin, ‘class’, race, disability and gender, particularly to participate effectively in the decisions that affect their lives. Adrian Price – is an experienced Diversity and Inclusion consultant. Whilst having a broad range of experience in all aspects of diversity, inclusion, and equity, he has specialized in the design and implementation of strategies that genuinely make workplaces more inclusive for people of diverse genders and sexualities and people with disability. Adrian gives his full energy and enthusiasm – whatever the challenge – to make a difference to people’s lives.

Legendary British post-punk/indie band The Wedding Present return to Australia on the back of their ninth studio album ‘Going, Going…’

Having formed in Leeds in 1985 around the lovelorn songwriting of David Gedge, the band soon acquired a reputation for bittersweet, breathtakingly honest songs of heartache immersed in whirlwind guitars — a jangly-yet-brawny sound, played at impossibly breakneck speeds, that was introduced to the world on their debut LP ‘George Best’.

NME called the album “an unmitigated delight” and subsequently invited The Wedding Present to contribute a track to the magazine’s C86 compilation — a cassette release that has remained hugely influential upon generations of noisy indie rock bands.

Over the course of the next three decades the band would find themselves exploring all kinds of sharp left turns like trying their hand at traditional Eastern European folk music on the album Ukrainski Vistupi V Johna Peela, enlisting the aid of the noise-mongering (and, at that point, relatively unknown) sound engineer Steve Albini for their 1991 album Seamonsters, and the time they released twelve 7” singles, one per month for a whole year — an experiment that paid off when they equaled Elvis Presley’s 35-year-old record for “most hits in one year”!

Today, The Wedding Present can be found at the top of their game — their 2016 album ‘Going, Going…’ having been described as their masterpiece. AllMusic says “It’s hard to deny the brilliance of a band that can crank out an album as passionate, hook-filled and flat-out fiery as this.”

On this tour, The Wedding Present will be performing songs from throughout their career.
