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
