1st Nov 200716:30AcademicHistory and Philosophy of Science Departmental SeminarAlisha Rankin (Trinity) will speak on 'Panacea's daughters: gentlewomen healers and experiential knowledge in early modern Germany'. Seminar Room 2, HPS, Free School Lane.

A number of learned physicians in sixteenth-century Germany sang the praises of a particular type of healer: a gentlewoman who made medicinal remedies and handed them out to the sick poor (also helping ill aristocrats and patricians in the bargain). This paper examines the topos of the gentlewoman-healer, arguing that aristocratic women gained respect as medical practitioners not in spite of their gender, but because of it. Particularly, it focuses on gentlewomen’s reliance on experience and empirical observation to confirm the success of their medical remedies, categories that overlapped with a new interest in observation in learned medical spheres.

1st Nov 200716:45MusicMusic in Michaelmas - Lectures in LentBalázs Kakuk: Music from the Court of Prince Esterházy. Haydn, Tomasini, Lidl and Esterházy. With the Haydn Baryton Trio, Budapest.

Balázs Kakuk is a professor at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, and the founder and artistic leader of the Haydn Baryton Trio Budapest, comprising of Balázs Kakuk (baryton), Anna Kakuk (violin/viola), András Kaszanyitzky (cello). Professor Kakuk is perhaps the most acclaimed baryton player in the world: not only does he give many concerts, but is also on many international juries, and his masterclasses are in great demand. The baryton, popular in the 18th century, is a stringed instrument similar in size to the cello. The best known pieces for this instrument were composed by Joseph Haydn for his patron, Prince Nikolaus Esterházy the Magnificent. Professor Kakuk will talk about the musical life in the court of the Prince, and with the Haydn Baryton Trio Budapest will play some of the most beautiful pieces written for the baryton by Haydn, Tomasini, Lidl, and the Prince himself (Old Combination Room).

24th Oct 200720:00FilmCineclub8pm: "Goodbye Lenin" (2003) Director: Wolfgang Becker (120 mins). Starring Daniel Bruhl and Katrin Saß. The protagonist Alex lives in East Berlin and is disatisfied and unconvinced by the socialist ideals held by his contemporaries. When his mother suffers a heart attack and falls into a deep coma which lasts 8 months the wall suddenly comes down. Within weeks his world is turned upside down as Coca-Cola and other western commodities and values start flowing back into the formerly communist half of the city. And then his mother wakes up. As the shock of hearing about the fall of her beloved socialism could potentially kill her, Alex must do everything in his power to keep her finding out and therefore attempts to recreate the world of the GDR within the four walls of his mother's bedroom. A clever and amusing story which won the Cesar for Best European Film in 2004.

10pm: "Gegen die Wand" (2004) Director: Fatih Akin (120 mins). Starring Birol Ünel and Sibel Kekilli. Cahit, a German with Turkish roots, attempts to put an end to his destructive life by crashing his car into a wall. At the hospital he's taken to, he meets a girl, Sibel, another German Turk who's tried to commit suicide. She's sick and tired of her family's ultra-traditional issues, and asks Cahit to carry out a fake marriage, so that she can become a married woman and free herself from her family's pressure. They live as roommates with separate private lives for a while, but then things take a different turn, and they're no longer two indifferent roommates. But their love story won't be anywhere as simple as any other (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).
