It’s been a busy few months for The Arts Society. Exhausting in fact. So it is with some relief and a lot of pride that we announce the launch of Bodies of Work Online, the electronic counterpart to the print journal that we launched at Newnham in May.
Like the journal itself, Bodies of Work online is an AHRC funded, interdisciplinary, inter-institutional project that has been organised by postgraduate students at Cambridge and Sussex. The work in both components of the project is exciting, fresh, and intelligent. We are honoured to have been able to include so many stunning pieces of work and I want to publicly thank everybody who submitted their work, and those who gave up their time to review work for us, or to contribute beautiful illustrations. A big thank you to Clémentine Beauvais (Cambridge) and Catie Ash (Cambridge), our excellent assistant editors.
Finally, I really want to personally thank my friend and fellow Art Soccer, Holly Corfield-Carr (Sussex), who is quite simply brilliant. Not only has she been a wonderful editor-in-chief, she is really quite the most talented person I know. Holly not only designed the printed journal, which is beautiful, she also designed and built the website in a matter of weeks having never attempted anything on this scale before. She would never sing her own praises but, without Holly, there would be no Bodies of Work project at all, and I am completely indebted to her. Thank you, Holly, you’re a star!
