Three speakers will explain their research to a bunch of people in the pub in exchange for a pint or two.
The talks are at “pub level” – you don’t need to be an academic to understand them!
- Abi Rhodes (Critical Theory) is a M3C AHRC funded PhD student at the University of Nottingham. Her research addresses the role of conversation in campaigns by social movements for a more equal society and how such discussion is utilised within the policy documents of political parties.
- Mark Anderson (History) is a PhD student at the University of Nottingham. His research considers change in male hair fashions in Britain between the 1950s and 1970s, and asks what this can tell us about attitudes towards authority, gender and consumerism during these years.
- Tim Murray (Theology) is at the University of Nottingham and is researching ethics of money and wealth in the New Testament. Jesus said some radical things about money; the first Christians had to work out how to put this into practice! He is researching when the first Christians weren’t generous and why.
