OUSA Announces Supreme Supervisors

The Otago University Students’ Association tonight announced the supervisors that made their mark on their postgraduate students at the annual Otago University Students’ Association Supervisors Awards.

“OUSA acknowledges the importance of quality supervision in graduate research degrees (thesis Masters and PhDs), and has instituted these annualawards to recognise and celebrate excellence in this role,” said Maria Pozza, OUSA Postgraduate Representative.

The awards have been running for a number of years and prove popular with many students wanting to show their supervisor how valued their work is.

“It’s a real step up from the old a bottle of wine at the end of the thesis,” joked Miss. Pozza, “It’s an award from their students honouring the fact that many supervisors often goabove and beyond the call of duty in their support.”

“In academic life a supervisor isn’t just a lecturer they’re an experienced researcher,” said Miss. Pozza, “A great supervisor uses that knowledge to mentor their students not only with research but in paper preparation and the whole range of skills an aspiring student needs to get their work recognised in academia.”

The OUSA Supervisors Awards will be held tonight August 1st 2012, at 5pm in the Gazebo Lounge in the University Union.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
