Being Human Festival Photo Gallery

A fantastic series of photo albums and galleries have been made available online that showcase highlights from the ‘Being Human Festival’ that took place in the summer of 2015.

The series of events that led by Swansea University had a theme of ‘Heritage, Health and Wellbeing’ and involved an exploration of wellbeing and heritage through public-facing activities (debate, poetry, dramatic performance, art and enterprise) supported by the Connected Communities project at a variety of venues including the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks, Clyne Farm Centre, the National Waterfront Museum and the University’s Singleton campus

The photo albums include the ‘Art @ the Hafod’ event at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks here:

and Windsongs of the Blessed Bay that took place at Clyne Farm here:

‘Crime Fiction in German’ publication day!

Today sees the publication of Crime Fiction in German: Der Krimi by the University of Wales Press. For all us involved in writing and producing the book, this is a hugely exciting moment, not least because Crime Fiction in German is a genuine first: the first volume in English to give a comprehensive overview of German-language crime fiction from its origins in the early nineteenth century to the present day.
