Alice Oswald elected Oxford professor of poetry by huge margin

the guardian - Fri, 21/06/2019 - 18:04

Oswald will be the first woman to serve in the role, established three centuries ago

Alice Oswald has won the race to be Oxford’s latest professor of poetry. She will be the first woman to serve in the position, established more than 300 years ago.

Celebrated for their exploration of nature and myth, Oswald’s nine books of poetry have already brought her prizes including the TS Eliot, Griffin and Costa poetry awards. The former poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy has hailed her as “the best UK poet now writing, bar none”, while Jeanette Winterson has called her Ted Hughes’s “rightful heir”, a poet not “of footpaths and theme parks, but the open space and untamed life that waits for us to find it again”.

Like, Love Island is a lesson in how language evolves | David Shariatmadari

the guardian - Fri, 21/06/2019 - 14:00

The contestants’ heavy use of ‘like’ has raised hackles. But they shouldn’t be demonised for it

Love Island is not for everyone. You might not appreciate the dating show’s rowdiness; its relentlessness (nearly 50 episodes this season!); its raunch. But even if you’re able to tolerate all that, you might draw a line at the language. I’m not talking about swearing, because there’s something even worse, apparently: Love Islanders’ liberality with their discourse particles.

This is not an innuendo. You can’t catch discourse particles. No, they are little words we use to signpost and structure our speech. Sometimes they are just used to maintain fluency, or to generate rapport. In short, they oil the wheels of communication. One of the big players is “like”. According to the Sunday Times this week, it was used 76 times in under five minutes during one episode of the ITV reality show. The paper provided an example from Islander Amy: “Molly was like ‘oh he’s my type’ and I’m like ‘no sorry you’ve already got two’. It’s like three out of seven boys.” (Not all of these likes are discourse particles, but more of that later.)

Survey says teachers feel ill-equipped to educate pupils, as school strikes continue

A growing number of teachers want their pupils to learn more about the climate crisis and are calling for environmental training so they can prepare children for a rapidly changing world, according to a poll.

The findings from YouGov research commissioned by Oxfam come before the latest round of school climate strikes on Friday, in which it is expected that hundreds of thousands of young people will walk out of classrooms around the world.

the guardian - Thu, 20/06/2019 - 19:37

Trinity’s plan to pull out of scheme undermines pensions of university staff across UK, say opponents

Cambridge university’s wealthiest college is facing a crucial vote that could put it on a collision course with academics and unions over its decision to abandon the national university pension scheme.

Trinity college pulled out of the University Superannuation Scheme (USS) at the end of May, citing a “remote but existential risk” that it could be forced to help bail out the USS in the event of the collapse of the UK’s higher education sector.
