1.5 Getting Into Other Worlds: James Robertson with Penny Fielding (JP)

Novel Dialogue

James Robertson, brilliant author of The Testament of Gideon Mack, and University of Edinburgh’s top prof. Penny Fielding beam in from their respective corners of Scotland. Extensive reference is made to (John’s madly beloved) James Hogg and to Robert Louis Stevenson, especially his Jack-the-Ripperesque Jekyll and Hyde. The violence that underpins slavery–aye, even in Scotland, and even during the enduringly influential Scottish Enlightenment–is dredged up, as is the question of feeling implicated in the legacy of an enslaving system. James sketches a generous theory about what and how a novel signifies: it is simply asleep until a reader picks it up and invests imagination into it. Hints are dropped regarding James’s newest novel, News of the Dead due for release in May. And, of course, we learn about his writerly treat…Mentioned in the Episode Louis L’Amour, J. T. Edson and Will Henry Robert Louis Stevenson, Jekyll and Hyde, Weir of Hermiston (“a tragic part of his life….and I’d like to finish it for him”) James Hogg, The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified SinnerAlfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (imagine watching during its first release and…. not knowing! Joseph Knight…..and the actual Joseph Knight (“a history I didn’t know, and I’d done two history degrees!”)The FanaticEdinburgh’s Dundas StatueJohns Hopkins, a slaveownerBen Okri, Birds of Heaven, “Nations and peoples are largely the stories they feed themselves.” In case you are wondering about the general look of those standing stones James writes about–and runs past daily.Listen to the EpisodeImage source: Sierra Pacheco abernethy biscuit (wikipedia)

#11 James Robertson: Focus on the digital employee experience

Open up Digitals

James Robertson (Sydney) is a keynote speaker, author of three best selling intranet books, and a global expert on intranet strategy and design. He is founder and director of Step Two Designs, a consultancy firm based in Sydney, Australia. In this role, James has helped organizations to develop intranet strategies, both within Australia and internationally."In this day and age, resilience is needed. Zoom fatigue exists and we miss the micro-interactions at the coffee machine and in the elevator. We do what it takes to be productive and tools can help. But they have to be purpose-driven and tailored to the needs of employees. The danger now is that we put technology back at the forefront, and we have to be vigilant about that.""The digital environments we offer are often too complex. You notice by walking along with your employees for a few days. You'll soon get to know the users of your platform and identify a few things you can tackle right away. But beware: you can't solve everything. Start small, do the right small thing. Tackle something that really helps your employees and take it from there."Open up Digitals is a Fellow Digitals production.
