Why Black people look blue in the moonlight: an examination of how Barry Jenkins film Moonlight (2016) reunites the image of Black people’s bodies with water

Sarah Powell
A recent study highlighted that 70 percent of African Americans could not swim (Diaz-Duran, 2017), with drowning rates being far higher in Black communities than in white. The origin of this alarming statistic can be traced back to the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and cemented itself during segregation which forcibly divorced the image of the back body and water. It is these historical events that have led to the above statistic and the subsequent stereotype...

Southern Ocean paleoceanography provides key insights into how iron fertilization and oceanic productivity developed through Pleistocene ice-ages and their role in influencing the carbon cycle. We report the first high-resolution record of dust deposition and ocean productivity for the Antarctic Zone, close to the main dust source, Patagonia. Our deep-ocean records cover the last 1.5 Ma, thus doubling that from Antarctic ice-cores. We find a ≥10-fold increase in dust deposition during glacials and a ≤5-fold...

Humanising The Inhuman: Considering The Anthropomorphism Of Artificial Intelligence In Post-2010 Science Fiction Media

Isobel Elrick
Anthropomorphism refers to the assignation of human characteristics to inanimate or non-human objects; whilst this concept is not new with relation to artificial intelligence in science fiction, post-2010 science fiction media provides an examination of this concept within the context of modern society, where artificial intelligence is arguably prevalent in our everyday lives. As we map out our lives with the addition of artificial intelligence, science fiction can help us understand how we can move...

Digital fly-through of a WW1 crater.

Jamie Pringle
From a multidisciplinary scientific Investigation of the 1916 Hawthorn Mine Crater, Beaumont Hamel, Somme, Northern France,. Hawthorn Crater is a prominent feature of the former Somme battlefield near Beaumont Hamel, Northern France. It resulted from the detonation of what is arguably the most famous of the nine mines that the British had prepared below the German lines on 1 July 1916, as part of the opening day of the Battle of the Somme. This mine...

How consciousness of race and ethnicity-based discrimination affects the health and wellbeing, and academic motivation of minority group students

Simran Sidhu
Discrimination based on race and ethnicity remains prevalent in today’s society. There is numerous literature on how conscious racial and ethnic bias and discrimination affects individuals from black and minority ethnic groups, but little on effects of unconscious racial and ethnic bias and discrimination. This study aimed to determine and compare effects of conscious versus unconscious racial and ethnic discrimination on black and minority ethnic students. Black and minority ethnic participants complete an online survey,...

Tectonic and environmental perturbations at the Permian-Triassic boundary: insights from the Blue Nile River Basin in central Ethiopia

The Blue Nile River Basin contains a thick fluvio-lacustrine sediment succession of Permian to Jurassic age. Its evolution is linked to extensional tectonics during break-up of Pangea in the aftermath of the Carboniferous-Permian glaciation. We collected sandstone samples from several sections in order to study the tectonic evolution and possible impacts of environmental perturbation around the Permian-Triassic boundary. Based on thin-section petrography, bulk-rock geochemistry, heavy mineral spectra, and detrital zircon U-Pb ages we are able...
