PubhD Bristol’s first event: 1 June 2016

Another city gets to host a PubhD event: PubhD Bristol launches with their first event on Wednesday 1 June 2016. It will take place at The Robin Hood pub on St Michael’s Hill.

PubhD Bristol is being organised by Travis Bacon and Arne Scott.

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.

The first line up is:

  • Pam Lock: PhD student at the University of Bristol: “Drinking & Drunkenness in Victorian Fiction”.
  • Helena Quilter, PhD student in Sustainable Plastics at the University of Bath: “Pining for Plastics”.
  • Jake Barber, MRes Health Sciences at the University of Bristol: “Little Pricks: Improving the Efficiency of Nanospikes Against Bacteria”.

More information can be found at their Facebook group, their website or on Twitter.
