PubhD: Mental Illness, Mobile Phones, and Renewable Energy
January 21 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pmFree
This event comes to you in association with our friends from PubhD Glasgow.
The format is nice and simple:
1: Three researchers will each have 10 minutes to talk about their subject area to an interested audience in a pub
2: There will be up to 20 minutes of (friendly!) Q&A per speaker.
3: Each speaker gets at least one pint (or other drink of their choice).
A whiteboard/flip chart and coloured pens will be provided.
“One argument holds that renewable energy promotion should be left for national governments to pursue. The reason is that all countries have the right to extract or dispose their energy resources as they deem fit. However, my research argues that international law has a greater role to play in promoting renewable energy. I will be discussing the reasons underlying my argument.”
“I’ll be using quantitative methods, and health and admin data to look at the relationship between Severe Mental Illness – such as schizophrenia and psychosis – and employment across the lifespan in Scotland.”
“A documentary shot entirely on iPhone and iPod focusing on 5 tv stations in 5 countries looking at how they use mobile phone technology to enhance news gathering and distribution. As well as the video documentary of which 2/5 have been shot, 1/5 with STV another with CBS News in Tennessee the study will comprise a 30,000 word thesis”
This is event is free to attend, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn’t end up in anyone’s pocket – it is used to fund our overhead costs, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield.
Accessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users.
