Goldsmiths Honour Stuart Hall By Naming Building After Him

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



WORLD-RENOWNED academics gathered at Goldsmiths College this week to celebrate one of Britain’s most highly regarded intellectuals.
Professor Stuart Hall, who died earlier this year, will be immortalised at the south London university college after it named the Stuart Hall Building in his honour.
Goldsmiths’ warden, Patrick Loughrey, said: “Professor Stuart Hall was a public intellectual who held the highest values of integrity, creativity and criticality, values which Goldsmiths embodies today.
“Stuart Hall has been a crucial influence on our work at Goldsmiths and we are proud to dedicate this state-of-the-art facility to his legacy.” 
Jamaican-born Hall, considered the godfather of cultural theory, was a regular face on television screens and his work is referenced in seminal sociology texts.
A week-long celebration of his achievements culminated in a keynote speech – Policing the Crisis Today – delivered by eminent political activist Angela Davis on Friday, November 28.
She spoke of the influence Hall had on cultural change not only in the UK, but globally.
Other scholars, artists and activists, including Isaac Julien, Alberto Toscano and Dick Hebdige also led events during the week.
John Akomfrah’s three-screen installation, The Unfinished Conversation, was also on display.
This work, most recently shown at the Tate Britain, tells Hall’s life-story through his advocacy for change in post-war Britain, focusing on his work about race, gender, sexuality and identity.
The noted cultural academic played a pivotal role in social change and was also a uniquely gifted teacher.
He was awarded a Goldsmiths Honorary Doctorate in 1997.
Hall’s family and friends have also revealed plans for a Stuart Hall Foundation, of which Henry Louis Gates Jnr, Angela Davis and Isaac Julien are confirmed as patrons.
It will support the work of scholars, artists, writers and researchers as well as forge partnerships with institutions with which he had a close association.
The charity will fund one or more fellowships for research in the arts and social sciences.
Founding trustees include Sue Woodford-Hollick (Chair); Hall’s widow and academic Catherine Hall; Becky Hall; Michael Rustin; Susanna Rustin; David A Bailey; Julian Henriques and Gilane Tawadros.
