March Meeting

Our March meeting will take place tomorrow in Howard 5422 from 15.00-17.00. Adam will be talking about elements of his research.

We’ll also be discussing the conference after Adam has presented.

Hope to see as many of you as posssible!

PubhD in Sheffield starts November 2nd

Just a little notice of an event that may be of interest to people in the group:


Could you explain your research in exchange for a drink?

Do you want to try out some public engagement down the pub?

Do you want to hear about the latest research taking place right on your door step?!

The first event takes place on Wednesday November 2nd 7pm-10pm, so it fits in perfectly just after our next group meeting! It’s being held at Harrisons 1854 15/29 Regent Terrace, in the town centre.

Here’s a Facebook event page for the event, and here’s the webpage of the organisers.

So how does it work?

PubhD has a really simple, relaxed format…

In exchange for a pint (or two), three researchers will be given a white board, marker pen and 10 minutes to explain their research, followed by 20 minutes of friendly Q&A.

For the speakers PubhD is a great way to test your public speaking and public engagement skills.

For the audience it is a great opportunity to learn something new, without needing any prior knowledge of the topic!

Hope to see some of you there!
