Starting this month: PubhD Newcastle

Last month we saw Norwich, Birmingham and PubhD UMinho host their first events. On 25 February 2016, PubhD Newcastle hosts their first event.

PubhD Newcastle’s first event

At each PubhD event, three researchers from any subject area explain their work to an audience in a pub in exchange for a drink or two. The talks are at a “pub level” – the idea is that you don’t have to be an academic to understand the talks.

For Newcastle’s first event, the research topics are:

  • Should adolescent children should have their own distinct set of rights? – Tracy Kirk
  • Entrepreneurship, Education, Learning and Threshold Concepts – Lucy Hatt
  • The provision of free legal advice within communities and where there are gaps in provision following cuts to legal aid and changes to the legal system due to government austerity measures – Chris Simmonds

PubhD Newcastle is being run by by Elaine Campbell, a Senior Lecturer at Northumbria Law School, and Rebecca Prescott who is currently undertaking her doctoral research in urban regeneration and artistic place-making.
