Our lectures are designed to inform and to engage you.
Our theme for this, our third year, is Identities. We have challenged academics from across the College to address this topical and sometimes controversial issue from the perspective of their own research.
4th March 2015- ‘I’m worried about getting water in the holes in my head’: The experience of deep brain stimulation surgery with Dr Virginia Eatough
27th May 2015- Dead Wilde: Magnus Hirschfeld and the Violent Shaping of Modern Queer Culture with Dr Heike Bauer
23rd June 2015- What is work-life balance, and how can you make this work? with Dr Almuth McDowall
19th October 2015- Immigration and National Identity in Britain Since 1945 with Professor David Feldman
Later in the year, colleagues in law and social science will also take up the challenge of addressing the theme of identities through their research.
