The first of these will be led by Professor Andrew Bick with ‘Big Disco Pants, and Other Kinds of Disinformation’ at the University’s Park Campus on Wednesday, 15 May (4pm).

Andrew, Professor of Contemporary Art and Reinterpretation within the University’s School of Creative Arts, will be talking about his work as an artist – painting and drawing – and as a researcher.

In the second of this year’s series, Hassan Chizari, Professor of Computing within the University’s School of Business, Computing and Social Sciences, will deliver ‘Randomness in Computing and Cyber Security’  at Park Campus on Wednesday, 29 May (4pm).

Course Lead for the University’s MSc Cyber Security programme, Hassan’s main research interest is studying randomness and its applications in cyber security. 

On Wednesday, 19 June (4pm) at Park Campus, Professor Adeela Shafi MBE will present Chuck Them Out and Throw Away the Key: the Education of Incarcerated Children.

Adeela – Professor of Education in Youth Justice within the University’s School of Education and Science – has carried out extensive research around how to re-engage incarcerated children and young people with education and learning. 

The public lecture series offers opportunities to hear from leading academic and public figures, both from within the University and from its external partners, about a diverse range of subjects. Lectures are free to attend, but tickets must be booked in advance.
