Preview- EUABC License to Fight: 003

1 event, 1 ring, 12 fights: A Formidable Event Not to be Missed

Last Friday (20th March), Unit 1 was supposed to play host to the most anticipated and intense sporting event of the term. None other than Exeter University Amateur Boxing Club’s License to Fight: 003. In the event, Amateur University Boxers would have traded in their books for gloves and ventured into the ring to battle it out and see which fighter came out on top. However, due to the development of COVID-19 in the UK and following Government guidelines on social distancing and mass gatherings, Exeter University Amateur Boxing Club took the difficult decision on 15th March to cancel the event in order to best protect the health of all attendees and participants. We’d still like to pay tribute to the fighters and the society’s hard work in preparing for this event by sharing with you our original preview. RAZZ looks forward to seeing what Exeter University Amateur Boxing Club go on to do once we are past these difficult times. Continue reading Preview- EUABC License to Fight: 003

Review: To All The Boys: PS I Still Love You

Politics on Screen: Noughts and Crosses

Reading Malorie Blackman’s multi-award winning novel Noughts and Crosses during my last years of primary school was an eye-opening experience about the extent of racism in our society, and my position of privilege in the world. My interest was piqued when I heard that the BBC was creating a TV adaptation. With the current political climate, the open (and horrific) examples of police brutality internationally, and increased instances of racism at our university, now was seemingly the time for this series to be adapted. On a trip home from university I binge-watched the entire series in one day and found myself being shaken again by this story. Continue reading Politics on Screen: Noughts and Crosses

In Defence of the “ME” Generation

Where the phrase “ME” generation used to refer to baby boomers, it’s now being used to talk about Gen Y (aka Millennials, anyone born between 1980-94) and Gen Z (or iGen, born between 1995-2010). And oh boy, we’re not coming off well! From the older generations to the mass media, you’d be forgiven for thinking Gen Z is the root of all evil. Countless newspaper headlines proclaim we’re entitled, lazy and prone to getting upset over nothing, all while stockpiling avocados and ruining things such as dinner dates, napkins and divorce (yes, those are all real headlines). It’s official: we’re the worst … except we’re not. We may not be perfect (who is?) but there are so many things we’re doing right, from spreading political awareness to being more considerate towards others. Here are just a few areas where Gen Z is leading positive change and making a difference. Continue reading In Defence of the “ME” Generation

That’s Niche: Animal Crossing

I wouldn’t say I’m massively obsessed with Animal Crossing but since Nintendo announced the new pastel blue Switch console for the release of the new game … I can’t stop thinking about it. Every few months I rediscover my Nintendo DS and revisit my town and the strange animals living there, and some part of me feels like I’m going home, even if it’s just to pick some weeds and do some fishing. On the one hand, I can’t believe I’m 20 years old and still playing a game I got when I was in primary school. But deep down I think everyone should experience the stress of forgetting to save the game and being shouted at by an angry mole, or shaking a tree and getting attacked by bees. Apart from the very few stressful aspects of the game, after a long day of lectures and essay writing, sometimes we all need to do a little bit of fishing and collect some fossils to take to the museum. And if anyone is wondering, my favourite villager is Bob; always a bit sleepy and loves wearing pink. All I need to do now is hope all the Twitter giveaways I’ve entered to win a Switch aren’t scams and that I have enough self-control to stop myself playing the game until after exams (I don’t hold out much hope).

Review: RAMM Lates

Last Friday night I went to the RAMM for just the second time since I’ve lived in Exeter. As an English student and exhibition lover, I find it strange that there is such a valuable resource in the centre of town that I have never used. The RAMM Lates event highlighted the fact that the RAMM is a great resource that has real relevance to the student community. Museums allow us to experience culture up close and without the filter of computer screens that we have become accustomed to. After learning about Native American culture and history last term I found it eye-opening to be able to see firsthand authentic artefacts – such as traditional clothing and weapons – from Native American culture. So surely this is a resource we should all be using more often? Continue reading Review: RAMM Lates

Politics on Screen: Parasite

Ever since it debuted at Cannes Film Festival in May 2019 and won its prestigious Palme d’Or, Parasite has been making waves. With two Baftas, four Oscars (including best picture – the first time a foreign film has ever won) and countless other accolades under its belt, it has dominated the awards circuit and catapulted writer-director Bong Joon-Ho to international fame. A much-celebrated director in his native South Korea, Bong’s work often touches upon social issues. Okja, for example, deals with environmental issues, capitalism, animal rights and corporate greed, whilst The Host explores dictatorships, governments and power, amongst other things.

Introduction to K-pop

How does K-pop work? Let’s get the basics down first.

K-pop stars, referred to as idols, are singers, dancers, and/or rappers. They may be part of a group, or a soloist (though sometimes, an idol in a group may release a solo, whilst continuing to promote and be a part of their group!) They’re also skilled at variety, as a big part of their job when promoting their music is to go on variety programs, such as Weekly Idol or Hello Counsellor. In fact, an idol’s personality is a crucial aspect of their career, as the genre greatly depends on an idol’s persona to attract and maintain a loyal fanbase (which then gets its own specific name. That’s why you’ll hear BTS fans be referred to as Army).  Continue reading Introduction to K-pop

Review: Re:Claimed Fashion Show

On Saturday night, I walked into Unit 1 at 6:45 (truly the earliest I think I have ever set foot there), excited for a night of fashion. The main dance floor had been filled with chairs, set up to include a runway right through the middle. We took our seats, second row from the front – the front rows were reserved for the designers responsible for the garments we were about to see grace the runway (this was the moment when I felt like I really was at a real fashion show). The Re:Claimed Fashion show, put on by Exeter Fashion Society, aimed to showcase local and student ethical, sustainable brands with a focus on celebrating the diversity and creativity of the sustainable fashion industry. The show promised a celebration of fashion’s creativity, as well as performances from URBN Dance, Pole Fitness, Breakdance, Dance Society and Mishaal Javed.

Five Up-and-Coming Designers To Know About

With Fashion Month at its end, it has been interesting to see innovations in the world of fashion. Despite the focus on bigger, well-known designers, we should also consider the designers that may not be as popular but should definitely be on our radar for the future. These designers manage to incorporate artistry and social issues, such as sustainability, identity, race and sexuality, within their work. In doing so, they are creating unique and personal pieces that set them apart from other mainstream designers and high-end fashion brands. Continue reading Five Up-and-Coming Designers To Know About

Resisting Ageism in Hollywood: Stars Coming Into Their Own Later in Their Careers

When you think of actors coming into their own, who comes to mind? Florence Pugh? Timothée Chalamet? Saoirse Ronan? Zendaya? Many people will envision the faces of young Hollywood actors and actresses, at the start of their careers, who seem to be everywhere. They’re in every film and awards show, on the cover of every magazine and talked about across the internet. Hollywood loves them and so does the media, praising them for their early success and writing article upon article about the accolades they’re receiving.

Frost on Film: The Personal History of David Copperfield

With his latest directorial instalment, Armando Iannucci has attempted to transform Charles Dickens’ masterpiece David Copperfield into a satirical affair which discusses contemporary social issues. The results are mixed as there are moments of genuine warmth throughout, but there are equally numerous occasions when jokes fall flat and twists in the plot fail to create the level of emotional outpouring one would have expected. Iannucci’s unique style is partially to blame for this as his ironic humour, which had elevated The Death of Stalin so brilliantly, in this instance limits the emotional heft of the source material.

Illustrated Vogue Italia: An Environmentally Conscious Approach

If you asked the general person what they picture when they imagine a Vogue cover, for many the same portrait would spring to mind: a perfectly shot photograph printed on glossy paper, peeping through the other magazines at the airport or newsagent. However, Vogue Italia has totally shaken up this image with their January 2020 edition, scrapping the photoshoot for one edition only, instead filling the magazine cover-to-cover with illustrations.

The Metamorphosing English Language

Thousands of words may have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) in recent years, yet it would be a mistake to think that this is the limit of English. The OED, being a descriptivist endeavour, will always be lagging behind, and now more so than ever, as new technology permits new registers for language to be played with. Social media platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp create a written medium that has the speed and interaction of speech and come with their own newly minted lexicons. Yet it is important for the OED to recognise the new words that emerge from these kinds of mediums of communication, partly as a resource for studying the language, but also to give words a sense of respectability – like a shield to hold off those pedants decrying the deterioration of English. As such, see this article as more of a personal view on changes to the language that I like, not a judgement on the new words. Continue reading The Metamorphosing English Language

We Need To Have A Conversation About Sexual Assault at University

Content Warning: Sexual Assault; Mental Health; Personal Account

The worst day of my life was the day after I was sexually assaulted in my first term at university. Looking back now, it’s hard to imagine how I got through that time – I felt completely paralysed by circumstances out of my control, unable to consider a future in which things would be normal again. The overwhelming feeling wasn’t one of shock, or hurt, or even anger. It was fear: uncontrollable, persistent, debilitating fear. Fear that is unfortunately all too common among the women who study at the University, whether they are a first-hand survivor or are simply aware that it is something to be afraid of. 23% of women experience sexual assault at some point in their lives, a shocking fact when you consider that this equates to almost a quarter of the women you know. It has been over a year since I became a part of this statistic, and I am okay now – but the situation still is not.  Continue reading We Need To Have A Conversation About Sexual Assault at University

Review: Bang Bang! @ Exeter Northcott

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Bang Bang!, John Cleese’s stage debut, gives us everything we could expect of a farce: dropped and misplaced trousers, slammed doors and hiding in wardrobes. While it’s undeniable that the audience enjoys this, there’s a lingering feeling of nostalgia for a genre which has certainly passed its heyday.

Adapted from Georges Feydeau’s French farce Monsieur Chasse!, Bang Bang! centres on a story of marital deceit with the wronged Leontine (Tessa Peake-Jones) taking revenge on her philandering husband, Duchotel (Tony Gardner), by setting up her own affair with Doctor Moricet (Richard Earl). The two couples end up conducting their affairs in opposite apartments which the fallen Countess Latour (Wendi Peters) manages. Leontine and Duchotel’s desperate attempts to conceal their affairs from the other result in tremendous laughter from the audience. Continue reading Review: Bang Bang! @ Exeter Northcott

Feeling Marginalised in Your Own Body: Unpacking Male Dominance of Female Anatomy

 “From the earliest days of medicine, women have been considered inferior versions of men.” – Gabrielle Jackson.

For as long as medicine has been around, it has been created by men, for men. Medical research is significantly often carried out on male animals due to hormonal fluctuations in female animals causing discrepancies. Further, the female body has been treated largely as a reproductive body first and undiagnosed female health issues have been reduced to part of a “hysteria” discourse, first coined by Freud in the 1800s. Therefore, inequality in medicine stems from both a lack of knowledge regarding gender specific medical issues and a negative portrayal of hormonal differences between the sexes.

Arty Nudes

There goes the age-old art centric debate; what constitutes nude and what naked? Nudity is often viewed as the artful posing of the naked human form, whereas nakedness is often perceived as more vulnerable, unrefined and bare – in such a sense nudity is often elevated to a higher artistic and cultural standing, with nakedness being largely associated with censorship and stigmatisation. The terms are often used interchangeably, and while this may not be 100% linguistically correct, I would argue that it is important to destigmatise the taboos surrounding nakedness; a naked body is just that, whether it can be perceived as sexually attractive should not be central to the manner in which we address it. As demonstrated, both words mean the unclothed human body, so how did such a differentiation in contextual understanding occur? Art critic John Berger previously argued the meaning of the nude has changed over the years; in his 1972 book ‘Ways of Seeing’  he says that the nude has been continuously utilised to portray the female body in a manner that is sexually pleasing to the viewer, whereas a ‘naked’ piece of art depicts a sitter embodying their own space and pleasure. Whether this is true is dependent on the subjective opinion of the viewer, something that has undoubtedly changed throughout history. Continue reading Arty Nudes

Strategic Essentialism and Queer Identities: Validation or Exclusion?

From general terms like queer, to gay slang like cishet, there are so many labels now that the majority of people, both inside and outside of the LGBTQ+ community, have no idea most of them even exist. And yet, queer people often find that their label, or lack thereof, defines them both within and outside of the LGBTQ+ community. Of course, in many ways, this can be empowering, giving queer people validation and an opportunity to express their identity. However, the minefield of personal opinions, ignorance, casual homophobia and exhausted indifference which surrounds the concept of strategic essentialist queer identities means that the topic becomes a lot more complex. Despite being proud of their identities, a lack of understanding and even homophobia can lead to strategic essentialist views of LGBTQ+ people that are deeply problematic.

*Trigger Warning: unwanted sexual advances*

I distinctly remember getting ready for my first (and worst) date, dispelling any nerves by blaring out Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ and heavily applying Maybelline’s Baby Lips! We had decided to go and see The Great Gatsby at our local cinema and after insisting that he paid for our tickets and snacks, brandishing two £20 notes (flashing that cash) that his Dad had given him to “treat” me with we found our seats and the adverts began. As the lights started to dim, I felt his hand on my knee – I thought nothing more of this until he started moving higher and higher up my leg and becoming increasingly more uncomfortable, my 14-year-old self suddenly rushed into action, slapping his hand and quickly hurrying out of the cinema. Naturally, he came speeding after me and as I quickly SOS messaged my Dad to come and collect me, he insisted on waiting. We proceeded to engage in a deeply awkward silence as I glared at him, too cross to speak, until he leaned in towards me with the grotesquely cliché line, “This is the moment you’ve been waiting for”, to which I instantly sprung back and his kiss caught the edge of my ear!!! Fortunately, my Dad’s car emerged around the corner several seconds later. I made my lucky escape and never spoke to Mr ‘Handsy’ again.
