An Overview

Faculties and departments:

 

Art

 

The Department of Art at Goldsmiths is one of the leading fine art teaching and practice-based research centres in the world. The Head of Department is Dr Richard Noble. Notable alumni include Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Steve McQueen, Gillian Wearing, Fiona Banner, Sabina Goldsmith and Graham Coxon.

 

Design

 

The Department of Design’s approach to design practice grew from a concern for ethical and environmentalist design. This developed alongside research by John Wood, and others, which informs their research into metadesign. TERU, the Technology Education Research Unit, has been instrumental in understanding how design and technology work in schools, how to encourage learners towards creative interventions that improve the made world, and how to help teachers to support that process.

 

Sociology

 

The Sociology Department include NirmalPuwar, YasminGunaratnam and Vikki Bell.

 

Cultural studies

 

The Media and Communications Department, as well as the Centre for Cultural Studies, include David Morley, Scott Lash, Angela McRobbie, NirmalPuwar and (formerly) Sara Ahmed.

The realm of continental philosophy is represented with academics such as Saul Newman, Alberto Toscano and Jean Paul Martinon as well as Visiting Professors Andrew Benjamin and Bernard Stiegler.

 

 

English and comparative literature

 

The English & Comparative Literature Department is one of the university’s largest and it covers English, comparative literature, American literature, creative writing and linguistics. Current academics include Blake Morrison, Chris Baldick, UttaraNatarajan and Peter Dunwoodie. Its work in comparative literature developed after a merger with the Department of European Languages, later joined by its Creative Writing section.

 

Music

 

The Department of Music has a number of notable alumni, including Malcolm McLaren, Katy B, James Blake, TundayAkintan, Rosie Lowe, John Cale and A. G. Cook.

While Molko is not a music alumnus, Placebo were one of the most successful British bands of the mid to late 90’s.

Location of the University

Goldsmiths is situated in New Cross, a highly populated area of south-east London with a considerable art and music scene. The area is served by London Overground trains at New Cross and New Cross Gate. The main building, the Richard Hoggart Building, was originally designed as a school (opened in 1844) by the architect John Shaw, Jr (1803–1870). In addition to this Goldsmiths has built several more modern buildings to develop the campus, including the RIBA award-winning Rutherford Building completed in 1997, the Ben Pimlott Building designed by Will Alsop and completed in 2005, and the Professor Stuart Hall Building (formerly the New Academic Building) which was completed in 2010.

 

The library, or the Rutherford Building, has three floors and gives students access to an extensive range of printed and electronic resources. The third-floor library is believed to house the largest collection of audio-visual material in the UK. Goldsmiths’ students, like all other students in the University of London, have full access to the collections at Senate House Library at Bloomsbury in central London.

 

 

The Ben Pimlott Building

 

The seven-storey Ben Pimlott Building on New Cross Road, complete with its distinctive “scribble in the sky” (made from 229 separate pieces of metal) has become a signature of modern Goldsmiths. It contains studio and teaching space for the Department of Art, as well as housing the Goldsmiths Digital Studios and the Centre for Cognition, Computation and Culture.

The Professor Stuart Hall Building (formerly the New Academic Building), situated next to the green, is home to the Media and Communications Department and the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE).[9] Facilities include a 250-seat lecture theatre, seminar and teaching rooms, as well as a cafe with outdoor seating.
