Approaching Shakespeare Lecture Series

Rating
0.0 stars

Each lecture in this series focuses on a single play by Shakespeare, and employs a range of different approaches to try to understand a central critical question about it. Rather than providing overarching readings or interpretations, the series aims to show the variety of different ways we might understand Shakespeare, the kinds of evidence that might be used to strengthen our critical analysis, and, above all, the enjoyable and unavoidable fact that Shakespeare's plays tend to generate our questions rather than answer them.

Professor Peter McDonald draws on the work of Indian novelist and literary critic, Amit Chaudhuri, to open up new ways of how we can think about D.H. Lawrence, not only as a Modernist, but also as a Post/Colonial writer. Peter then turns to Lawrence's short story, 'The Woman Who Rode Away' (1924), set in rural Mexico, in order to demonstrate how his literature runs against the grain of distinctly Western modes of thought. This audio recording is part the Interviews on Great Writers series presented by Oxford University Podcasts.

The Oxford Visual Geomery Groups Computer Vision Practicals is a collection of MATLAB-based self-contained hands-on lab experiences introducing fundamental concepts in visual recognition, including: extracting and matching local features to identify an object in two images regardless of variations in viewpoint, illumination, and other factors; quantising local features into visual words to index and search a large archive of images efficiently; representing images as statistics of local features for coarse image matching and its application to the recognition of object categories; learning image classifiers discriminatively, and in particular support vector machines; evaluating the performance of a retrieval system. The practicals are briefly described below. You can also review the requirements and installation instructions.
