Flash Friday 15/07: Asprin and Aspriring Ministers

This week you’ve been covering the… surprising changes in government; as well as covering a film festival; a protest for, rather than against, migrants; as well as telling us how asprin works.

The Verse, University of Brighton

the verse

Great piece by the team from the University of Brighton, covering a recent indie film festival, with a review of the overall event interwoven with an analysis of the pieces of work on show.

Gair Rhydd, University of Cardiff


It’s always a great feeling to be able to take something away from an article; whether that be gossip, a fresh opinion, or some useful facts. This article from the team at Gair Rhydd explains an important breakthrough in the study of asprin, made by a team of researchers based at their university.

Fun fact: Did you know that Gair Rhydd means ‘free word’ in Welsh? See, you’ve taken something away from this article as well. 🙂

Concrete, University of East Anglia

Following the wave of hate crimes committed since the United Kingdom voted to Leave the EU, the good people of Norwich held a peaceful protest in response to a race-motivated crime which had taken place in the town last week.

Concrete have done a brilliant job of illustrating the scenes at the event, mixing commentary with interviews with organisers and participants in the protest.

Wessex Scene, University of Southampton

This week saw the installation of a new Prime Minister in Theresa May, who wasted no time in conducting a cabinet reshuffle, handing nearly every foreign affairs post to the Brexiteers; whilst ensuring her dominance over domestic affairs posts by purging Brexiteers from domestic policy posts.

Wessex Scene have produced coverage worthy of Andrew Sparrow to keep you up-to-date on who’s who in the new government, as well as who is no longer anyone at all.

That’s all for this week! If you wish for your work to be showcased in a future edition of Flash Friday, be sure to email online@spajournalism.com, with a link attached.
