PubhD: Sexual Consent / Parenting Practices / Magnetic Fields
October 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
This event comes to you in association with our friends from PubhD Glasgow.
Speakers and topics:
1: Kelsey Entriken
Kelsey is exploring the important issue of sexual consent – using niche fan fiction and animal hybrids.
2: Simon Barrett
How does the way in which you were raised by your parents influence the parenting practices you now adopt with your own children? My study asks this question of a group of vulnerable mums in Glasgow, as part of a trial which aims to give these women extra support, improve the outcomes for them and their children, and disrupt any negative intergenerational cycles.
3: Carolyn O’Dwyer
I use atoms and lasers to measure tiny magnetic fields. I am building an experiment that can be shrunk to the size of an Irn Bru can to make sensitive measurements in hospitals and on archaeological digs.
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.
Kickoff at 7pm sharp. Drop-in event … no tickets required
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.
