Alicia Stallings

Hesiod’s Works and Days

Hay Festival 2018, 

The award-winning American poet introduces her translation of one of the great classical texts. Hesiod was the first self-styled ‘poet’ in Western literature, revered by the ancient Greeks. Ostensibly written to chide and educate his lazy brother, Works and Days tells the story of Pandora’s jar and humanity’s place in a fallen world. Blending the cosmic and the earthy, and mixing myth, lyrical description, personal asides, astronomy, proverbs and down-to-earth advice on rural tasks and rituals, it is also a hymn to honest toil as man’s salvation.

The British Academy Platform 4: Extra Time – 10 Lessons for an Ageing World

Hay Festival 2019, 

By 2020, for the first time in history, the number of people aged 65 and over will outnumber children aged five and under. Travelling across the world and interviewing leading scientists about breakthroughs which could soon transform the quality and extent of life, Cavendish contests many of the taboos around ageing, and sparks a debate about how governments, businesses, doctors, the media and each one of us should handle the final few decades of life. In this manifesto for change, she argues that if we take a more positive approach, we should be able to reap the benefits of a prolonged life, and help the elderly to play a fuller part in society. But that will mean a revolution: in work, in education, in housing, in medicine – and in our attitudes. Cavendish is an award-winning Times journalist and was head of the Downing Street policy unit under David Cameron. Bakewell was appointed as a Voice for Older People by Gordon Brown.

IWA Platform: Cool Cymru, Twenty Years Ago Today

It’s twenty years since the Welsh Assembly opened its doors for the first time, instituted in a referendum with a marginal majority on a low turnout, but backed with a formidable soundtrack of contemporary rock music. The Institute of Welsh Affairs brings together politicians and cultural figures to reflect on how ‘Cool Cymru’ helped create an atmosphere for a ‘Yes’ vote, and on what has and hasn’t been achieved in the two decades since 1999. David Melding has been a Conservative Assembly Member since 1999. Bethan Elfyn joined BBC Radio 1 and has now been a champion of new Welsh music for over two decades. Rachel Trezise won the first Dylan Thomas Prize and has become one of the leading writers of prose and plays in post-devolution Wales. Writer Rhian E Jones’s article on the relationship between politics and culture at the time of Cool Cymru appears in the latest issue of the welsh agenda.
