Dr Lewis, who joined Brasenose in 2007, has published widely on biodiversity and conservation in tropical forests, the dynamics of food webs, and spatial ecology.
Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus has been adapted by Brasenose students for a new production, with nightly performances from Friday 26th February to Monday 1st March. The play was shown in the atmospheric Norman undercroft at Brasenose's Frewin Hall, where a lavish set had been installed. The play was directed, produced and marketed by Chris Kemp (MSt English) and Max de Vere (Mathematics 4th Year) and is their first ever production. The cast was made up almost entirely of Brasenose students.
Sir Moses Montefiore (1784-1885) was the preeminent Jewish figure of the nineteenth century: a humanitarian, campaigner for Jewish emancipation and a global celebrity. In MOSES MONTEFIORE: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero, Dr Abigail Green, Fellow in History at Brasenose College, re-establishes Montefiore's status as a major historical player. Drawing on source material from eleven countries in nine languages, Green's sweeping biography interweaves the public triumph of Montefiore's foreign missions with the private tragedy of his childless marriage, and brings the diversity of nineteenth century Jewry brilliantly to life - from London to Jerusalem, Rome to St. Petersburg, Morocco to Istanbul.
Brasenose undergraduates directed and produced Far Away, a play showing from Tuesday 26th January to Saturday 30th January 2010 at the Burton Taylor Studio, Gloucester Street. Far Away is a one-act play by Caryl Churchill, which deals with themes of war, loyalty, and the human response to extreme conditions. The production by the Macondo Theatre Company will emphasise personal rather than political conflict in the play and share with the audience Churchill's joy in dislocating ordinary language and situations.
