The University is running language classes for beginners in French, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Mandarin is the most widely-spoken form of Chinese and the official language of China. These short courses, which are being held on Wednesday evenings (6.30pm – 8.30pm) from 12 May to 9 June 2004, will develop basic communication skills. Susan Stuart said: “These ‘taster classes’ are ideal for anyone interested in gaining a fun introduction to learning a foreign language and will provide students with basic skills to deal with a variety of everyday situations.” The University is also offering the UK’s leading certificate course in teaching English as a foreign language. The University is accredited by the University of Cambridge to run its highly respected Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). This Internationally recognised course prepares students for teaching English as a foreign language and includes teaching practice sessions and classroom observation with experienced teachers. The course runs Mondays to Fridays (9.00am - 5.15pm) 7 June - 2 July 2004. Susan Stuart said: “The University of Paisley is committed to providing practical and progressive programmes and this course will provide the skills and training for teaching English as a foreign language.” To be considered for the course, which will be delivered by staff based in the University of Paisley’s School of Media, Language and Music, applicants must have a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education.

Brenda, 24, was able to harness the skills and experience she gained on her degree course to successfully secure the position of Broadcast Editor with the Irish Radio Network USA, based on Madison Avenue, New York. Brenda said: “From a very young age I was fascinated with the world of media, so it was a natural progression to find myself at the University of Paisley, studying for the chance to make a lasting impression in the broadcasting industry. “Although I knew this would never be easy, a degree was a sure fire way of at least getting a foot in the door, especially a degree from Paisley which focuses on both the theoretical and practical aspects of the media. During my third year on the degree I undertook work experience with Sky TV in London and this gave me added incentive to follow my ambitions. These aspects stood me in good stead for surviving the cut-throat world of the media, especially in my current position, here in New York where the competition is overwhelming! Earning my degree at Paisley, where students are immersed in all facets of broadcasting has definitely given me the edge.” As Broadcast Editor of this popular Radio Station Brenda has had the opportunity to enhance and develop her media skills. She added: “My first year here was amazing. I met some truly fascinating people including former New York Mayor, Rudolph Guilani, Bob Geldof and the President of the Republic of Ireland, Mary McAleese. I also got to launch my own web-based radio show called ‘Celtic Tracks’ and I am now producing ‘The Adrian Flannelly Show’ which has been broadcasting over American airwaves for 35 years. “Without my training from the University of Paisley I very much doubt that these great opportunities would have come my way.” Media Graduate on Right Wavelength BA Honours Media Theory with Production graduate, Brenda McNeill is on the right wavelength for success, working for a leading radio station in New York.

Andrew Hillcoat, 23 from Bishopton, and Darren Cameron, 23 from Erskine, created this guide as part of a third year project The students have even set up their own company, Trailmaker Music, following the initial success of the music guide, which demonstrates the skills and industry contacts which the students have acquired during the course. To meet demand the students are planning a second print run of the music guide. The guide, which is available for purchase through Trailmaker Music’s website – www.theweeblackbook.com - is in great demand from new bands trying to break into the Scottish music scene. Commenting on the success of ‘The Wee Black Book’ Andrew Hillcoat said: “The aim of the guide is to provide a valuable source of information for unsigned Scottish bands, helping them get a foot in the door of the highly competitive music industry. The response and feedback we have received so far has been amazing and we hope that our guide helps new bands get their big break.” The students benefited from undertaking a placement during their third year with London-based Shazam Entertainment, who are a leading player in the music industry and provide a real-time song identification service for mobile phone users. The success of Shazam’s service, which identifies any piece of music over any mobile phone, relies heavily on its extensive music database. During their placement Andrew and Darren enhanced the company’s database, ensuring that it was fully up-to-date, by liaising with leading music labels throughout the UK. Darren said: “This work placement opportunity provided us both with valuable practical skills of working in the music industry and that has really helped us with the development, and promotion, of our music guide.” Course Leader, Allan Dumbreck said: “We aim to build relevant practical training and experience into the degree and Andrew and Darren’s success with this venture underlines our success in this. Andrew and Darren have tapped into a real need from new bands for a concise guide of music industry contacts in Scotland.” CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Slide11:  CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Oulu Polytechnic, Finland University of Limerick, Eire, Ireland Slide12:  CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Overview Research Projects Slide13:  > Screen, Sound and Performance > Culture and Language > Media, Identity and Culture Overview While there has continued to be much emphasis on the growth of undergraduate teaching provision between 2001 and 2003, the external research profile of the School has begun to expand as an increasing number of staff publish, present papers, and involve themselves in the work of subject associations, in external research collaboration, and funding bids. As well as participating substantially in the Scottish Media and Communication Association, the School is now also an active member of MeCCSA, the Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association and is also now a member of the Voice of the Listener and Viewer. Papers have been given at a variety of British, Irish, and International conferences ranging from the MeCCSA conferences of 2002 and 2003 to events such as the Association of Scottish Literary Studies annual conference at Stirling in late 2003, and others in Dublin and London. The School was host to a symposium on computer games during 2003 and was responsible for the organisation of the SMCA Annual Conference at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow in 2002, as well as co-organising the 2003 conference in Edinburgh at Napier University. In this review period three new Research Groups have been formed in: CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA more… Slide14:  > Cinema e.g. performance, film, sound and music > Food, heritage and tourism in Scotland > Various aspects of sport and the media, including the cultural theory of sport and bioethics > Media and Children/Young People > Issues within cyberculture > French and other language questions. Overview A new School Research Committee and a Commercial Activities Group have also been created. It is expected that further research group development will take place in the future. Media, Language and Music staff have published books of international scope, variously on Catalan identity and the media, European monarchy and the media and on various aspects of sport, ethics and the media. Journal articles and book chapters on a range of themes have been produced. These include works on: CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA more… Major research themes in which current expertise is concentrated include > The media and collective identity > Space and place issues, including heritage > Screen culture, particularly cinema > Media coverage of conflict > Digital culture/cyberculture > Intellectual property rights. Slide15:  Overview Participation by the School in recent research bids with a public communication and/or citizenship element has been part of a development intended to widen the School’s identity by addressing themes associated with social as well as cultural priorities, this being part of a strategy to try to align the School more closely with priorities of funding bodies, the research councils and other significant bodies such as SHEFC and the Scottish Executive. Internal research funding awards have resulted in collaborative projects with the School of Education (on politico-cultural awareness in the age 10-14 school population) and with the Scottish Centre for Journalism Studies (on the absence of a press consumer function in Scotland). Research bids have become part of the culture of the School and a number of grants from organisations such as the British Academy have been awarded. The main commercial market for the School has been in the delivery of Continuing Professional Development courses.

The findings of the University’s research have been published by the National Music Council - the only organisation that exists to promote the interests of the music industry as a whole – in a research report entitled ‘Sounding out the Future’. The study saw the School’s research team – Allan Dumbreck, Kwela Hermans and Kate McBain – using their music industry expertise to map the music industry’s investment in, and current and planned provision of, training and education. The National Music Council hopes that this research will also aid the music industry in its bid to gain Sector Skills Council (SSC) status, aiding the industry’s continued growth and development in the UK. Allan Dumbreck said: “This was a great opportunity for the University, to have been asked to undertake this research exercise. It underlines our standing in the music education sector. This report identifies the breadth and scope of, and industry commitment to, music education and training for the first time. The project involved direct contact with almost 100 leading industry figures and the results add to existing research as we continue to define the music industry as one of the key UK business sectors” CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA more… Slide18:  Research Projects Paisley Research Sounds out the Future of the Music Industry Allan Dumbreck, Kwela Hermanns, Kate McBain The music industry is hugely important to the UK economy, with an estimated 125,000 full-time employees working across all sub-sectors of the UK music scene. The music industry generated a total value in excess of £3.6 billion in 2000. Robin Osterley, National Music Council’s Chairman, said “‘Sounding out the Future’ is an extremely important report which will help inform the music industry’s future thinking with regard to post education and training. It will also provide valuable material for the organisation that the music industry is supporting in its bid for SSC status – the new Creative and Cultural Industries grouping. The National Music Council is grateful to the team of University of Paisley researchers for producing such a thoroughly analysed and in-depth report.” CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Slide19:  Research Projects CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Documenting Scots and the Arctic Dr Kathryn A Burnett Scotland and Sentimentalism Gordon Gibson The Function of the Press Complaints Commission Prof Neil Blain Gordon.gibson@paisley.ac.uk Kathryn.burnett@paisley.ac.uk Neil.blain@paisley.ac.uk Slide20:  Research Projects Scottish Press Coverage of Iraq War John W. Robertson From the First World War (1914-1918) to the Second Gulf War or Iraq War in 2003, academics have analysed the performance of the media, especially the press, in fulfilling a watchdog role by offering an independent critique of government and military actions. The over-representation of government or military voices and the under-representation of other affected groups has been repeatedly asserted. National broadsheet newspapers represent a critical element in a nations’ public sphere, ideally fulfilling a ‘watchdog’ function on behalf of the citizenry and so attract higher expectations of quality than tabloids or, arguably, television. This study using a content analysis of 2775 reports published in Scotland’s two national broadsheets, The Herald and The Scotsman, and their Sunday sisters, The Sunday Herald and Scotland on Sunday, from January to November 2003, reveals an overwhelming emphasis on reporting military achievements or movements and on the potential damage to UK politicians and parties of support for the war. By contrast, the massive damage to infrastructure, to public health and the environment and to civil order, resulting from massive high ordnance bombing and from the destruction of institutions of law and order, received very little attention. Further, out of 2775 reports, only a very small number of reports, given the scale of the fatalities and injuries, covered the daily toll of civilians and only a tiny handful featured the voices of Iraqis or other Arab/Islamic groups. The results of this study appeared in the December 2004 issue of the influential European Journal of Communication Slide21:  Research Projects Media @ the Olympics Dr Andy Miah Dr Andy Miah is undertaking British Academy funded research at the Athens Olympic Games. This research builds on preliminary studies carried out at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics and the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics. and examines the role of non-accredited media at the Games and their contribution to representing the host city. For the majority of the media at the Olympics, sports news is the focus. However, at the media centres that don’t have Olympic Committee accreditation, the cultural and human-interest stories dominate. These stories are one of the most viable opportunities for local and national governments to promote what their cities have to offer the international Olympic tourist. Journalists from the major broadcast and minor independent companies come together to find out about the Olympic movement and developments and hence these media centres are growing in their capacity. Miah is undertaking his research in collaboration with Dr Beatriz Garcia of the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Cultural Policy Research. The academics’ preliminary research has shown that during an Olympics, there is so much information to be reported and so many journalists willing to cover it, that it is essential that any bid process makes a strategic attempt to embrace these opportunities. As a result of their work, Dr Miah and Dr Garcia have already seen them hold discussions, whilst in Athens, with Tessa Jowell, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in relation to the London 2012 Olympic Bid. As part of their research work, Dr Miah and Dr Garcia attended an Olympic Truce function as part of a select audience, which included Prime Minster Tony Blair and the current International Olympic Committee President, Jacques Rogge. Dr Miah said: “The Olympic Games is about much more than just sport. We are trying to raise the profile of the cultural and educational aspects, which can help to restore lost faith in the Olympics and their cultural and moral dimension. It is critical that bid cities get behind these programmes, to ensure the ‘added value’ of a bid is visible.” Slide22:  Marcus.bowman@paisley.ac.uk Philip.drake@paisley.ac.uk Research Projects CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA 'Post-Fordism and the political economy of the Hollywood media conglomerates Dr Philip Drake Healthy Listening Dr Marcus Bowman Ewan Crawford Natasha Augustus Slide23:  CONTENTS PROGRAMME NEWS STUDENT STORIES NEW TEACHING AFFILIATIONS RESEARCH ACTIVE SCHOOL HONOURS GUEST SPEAKERS NEW APPOINTMENTS NEW AFFILIATIONS EVENTS GRANTS/COMMISSIONS AWARDS / HONOURS PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS IN THE MEDIA Research Projects The Politico-cultural Awareness of Scottish 10-14 Year-olds John W. Robertson Considerable anxiety about children and young people's knowledge and attitudes to the socio-political frameworks for their lives has been expressed by academics, educators, politicians and media commentators in the UK. Low and declining levels of democratic participation, of association and of interest in wider political issues, suggests a crisis for democratic societies. Apparently high levels of juvenile crime, chemical abuse and suicide have been linked to a decline of community identification and commitment. Formal education processes are characterised as weak influences in the face of powerful popular cultural forms such as sports culture, associated peer group pressures, hypermaterialism and a 'dumbing down' of the media. Contemporary British society is theorized by many commentators as atomized, privatistic, driven by consumption and forgetful of the past. Politicians in the UK increasingly identify the establishment of learning opportunities about citizenship or 'civics' as a priority. This project, based on a questionnaire and interview survey of 10 to 14 year-olds from a range of socio-economic, ethnic, regional, religious and disability groups, sought to: Assess the levels of knowledge of, and describe attitudes to, important representative contemporary issues held by 10-14 year-olds; Discover evidence of the role of local and historical dimensions in understanding the socio-political world; Identify and compare the relative frequency and quality of use of information sources accessed by 10-14 year-olds; Influence policy development in areas including: school curricula, school environments and structures, access to media and community enrichment; Identify avenues for further research.

John Athenasiou, Head of Human Resources at Warner Music UK, gave an in-depth presentation on the company’s prestigious Graduate Training Scheme to third and fourth year music students of the University’s School of Media, Language and Music on Monday 24 November. The University of Paisley is the only Scottish university, and one of only four UK universities (Oxford, Cambridge and Westminster being the others), to be working directly with Warner Music on this competitive scheme. The scheme, which has its new intake in September 2004, is fiercely competitive with up to 2000 applicants for the eight places available. Acceptance onto the scheme can lead to positions in A&R, marketing and business development with Warner Music UK and its global offices. Commercial Music Course Leader, Allan Dumbreck said: “Our students can undertake periods of work experience as part of their studies gaining practical insight into the demands of the industry. This has included placements with Warner Music UK, where the breadth and range of our degree has been recognised and students have been praised for their practical skills.” John Athenasiou of Warner Music UK said: “In the increasingly competitive music industry, with fewer and fewer job opportunities, it is vital that candidates interested in moving into the industry, do everything possible to skill themselves up. This should include a good standard of education to degree level if possible, and as much relevant work experience as feasible.” The University’s Commercial Music degree delivered by the School of Media, Language and Music at University Campus, Ayr, was launched in September 2001, and attracts musicians, producers, DJs and those wishing to run small record companies, develop artists or stage live events. The range of the degree aims to enable graduates to pursue several different careers in the music industry. Slide27:  Top Scottish Actor, Peter Mullan, Shares Expertise with Paisley’s Cinema Students The University of Paisley’s Media students recently received a fascinating insight into the film industry when leading Scottish actor, director and screenwriter, Peter Mullan gave a special lecture at University Campus, Ayr. Mullan received an Honorary Doctorate from Paisley last July for his important contribution to the Scottish television and film industry. At the special lecture he gave students, who are undertaking the BA Cinema scriptwriting module, a valuable insight into the film sector and what is required to achieve success in this demanding industry. Mullan, who has starred in numerous box office hits, including ‘My Name is Joe’, ‘Braveheart’ and ‘Trainspotting’, wrote and directed the acclaimed ‘Magdalene Sisters’, which recently won the ‘Best Film’ award at the prestigious Scottish Screen Film Awards 2003. During his three-hour presentation Mullan discussed the productions he has been involved in as an actor, director and screenwriter, and gave advice regarding the different approaches to planning and writing a screenplay. A University of Paisley spokesperson said: “We are delighted that Peter Mullan, one of Scotland’s leading players in the film industry, gave this interesting presentation. Students particularly benefited from Mullan’s interesting insight into the scriptwriting process.” Mullan, who won the 1998 Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his performance in ‘My Name is Joe’, is also an award winning writer and director and received an unequalled record of four prizes, decided by different juries, at the 55th Venice International Film Festival 1998 for his first feature film, ‘Orphans’. He is also the star of some of Scotland’s best loved television programmes. These include ‘Rab C Nesbitt’, ‘Taggart’, ‘The Steamie’ and ‘Your Cheatin Heart’.

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, 19 June 2003. The collaborative research of Dr Philip Drake was the focus of an International conference on City Collaboration based upon major Scottish Enterprise/University of Glasgow funded City Collaboration/City Development research project. The conference was attended by the Permanent Secretary of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and representatives from the Scottish Executive and the European Commission. A report was launched co-authored by Dr Iain Docherty, Dr Philip Drake and Professor Stuart Gulliver. Slide35:  Computer Games Research Symposium The School hosted a one-day research conference on "Computer Games and Cultural Policy" at University Campus, Ayr. The event saw leading games experts in Scotland come together to assess the state of computer games research. This conference was the first step in a collaborative research project to examine the social role of computer games playing. Most research concerning computer games in the UK only addresses the technical aspects and not the cultural significance and impact of the games industry. Many people are worried about the negative affects of computer game playing, with its alleged links to violent behaviour in children and its gender bias, with females largely excluded from participating. However, this research project will challenge a lot of these speculations, arguing that many of them have been fuelled by moral panic rather than a systematic analysis of gaming cultures. The research group will explore how computer games might promote health, contribute to educational development and even provide a tool for socialisation. Dr Andy Miah, who co-ordinated this conference, said: "A technology comes of age when people begin to study the social concerns surrounding it. For many years, people have been developing computer games with little thought about how they might reflect social prejudices and stereotypes. However the negative connotations made about computer gaming in recent years have missed a great deal about the value of gaming. At this conference we discussed how the Scottish HE sector could try to explore ways in which in which games can promote more socially desirable interactions.” The aim of this ongoing collaborative research project, which began in May, is to examine the cultural significance of computer games and to inform the development of Scottish policy in computer game playing. The project will tackle the three fundamental objections to computer games - that they are anti-social, unhealthy and debilitating to education. Dr Miah added: "These central aspects of computer game playing are the most contentious. A great deal of speculation has been made about them, though often the methods of such conclusions have not been questioned and spurious links are made. We want to examine these issues more carefully and our initial findings suggest that computer games can and do foster a number of desirable qualities in both children and adults. ”Paisley is in a uniquely advantageous position to develop this research with its strong Computer Games Technology degree and thriving social scientific research in new media theory."

The conference, which is being organised by the University of Paisley in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, is an informal grouping of lecturers and researchers in French from Scottish higher education institutions. WIFIS aims to foster an exchange of ideas and practice among women and all those with an interest in women as authors or characters in French literature, or women in France or other French-speaking communities. The event saw a host of speakers, from throughout the UK and Morocco, addressing the conference. Keynote sessions include the image of women in Morocco and the role of women in French studies in Scotland. Susan Stuart said: “This conference will be of great interest to those working in the field of French in the Scottish university sector and beyond. I am delighted by the positive response that we have already received. Colleagues from all over the UK and beyond are welcome to attend and participate in the conference.” The first WIFIS conference was held at the University of Glasgow in November 2001; the second took place in November 2002 at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh and was organised by the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The event was an opportunity for third and fourth year Media, Commercial Music and Digital Art students to show case their practical expertise. The show, which saw 100 people in attendance, included a broad range of digital art works and photography on display; the screening of documentary and creative video productions; and live musical performances. Over thirty students showcased their talents. Roy Wallace and Jane Robertson of the School of MLM played key roles in coordinating the event. Roy said “This event gave students the chance to celebrate , with friends, family and members of staff, their achievements over the past year. It also highlights the University’s close links with key players from the creative industries, with Peter Broughan of Bronco Films and Producer of ‘Rob Roy’,, Kate Wimpress of Edinburgh Arts and Jen Birks of The Herald / Sunday Herald attending” The event saw the screening of a documentary by four Media students entitled ‘The Glen Ciinema Disaster’. The documentary, which gives an insight into the worst cinema tragedy in Britain’s history, forms the main part of an exhibition commemorating the disaster. The students have teamed up with a Govan-based charity, Fablevision, who excavated the site of the old cinema in Paisley and are running an exhibition ,entitled ‘Cinema Buddies’. The students’ film, which started off as a project as part of their documentary module, is being screened throughout the exhibition in a small cinema in School Wynd in Paisley, set up specifically for the event.
