A couple of years ago, ScienceGrrl ran a few PubhD events in Sheffield. However, it’s been dormant since then.
Now Devon Smith and Emily Fisk are starting up PubhD Sheffield officially, with their own Twitter account and a shiny new website.
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. PubhD started in Nottingham in January 2014 and now there are 20 branches around Europe! A full list can be found on the PubhD Locations page.
The first PubhD Sheffield event is next week on Wednesday 2 November 2016 at Harrisons 1854.
The speakers and topics are:
- Isobel Williams: Giving meaning to feelings in Functional Neurological Symptoms
- Billy Bryan: Making medics mindful with feedback
- Emily Fisk: “Starve a Fever, Feed a Cold” – uncovering metabolism and how it could help fight antimicrobial resistance

It’s taken a few years for it happen, but PubhD London starts next week with their first event on 27 October 2016.
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.
Robyn Waite and friends launch PubhD London with the following speakers:
- Cerys Bradley, a PhD student at UCL studying Crime and Security Science, who’ll be exploring what privacy is and how we preserve it.
- Jessica Simpson, a PhD student studying sociology at City University. Her research explores student sex workers.
- Sahra Rae Taylor, a PhD student at City University in International Politics. Her research explores ‘Cosmopolitanism’ and how this is linked to education.
