What

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!

See The PubhD Format and About pages for more information about what to expect at an event.

Who

The speakers are:

  • Lucy Judd (History) is a Nottingham Trent University PhD student. She is researching examples of early modern Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire gentrywomen’s ‘receipt books’. These are, essentially, recipe compilations consisting of medicinal remedies and culinary favourites representing a culmination of domestic knowledge in the household, over a period of time. Receipt books hold interesting implications not only for the history of food and medicine in the local area, but also in identifying local networks of recipe sharing, and the ways in which women engaged with reading, writing and learning in the period.
  • Amy Manktelow (Politics) is researching International Relations at Nottingham Trent University. Specifically, she is looking at manipulation of the EU by the UK and what this means for UK/EU relations in context to external migration control.
  • Pip Logan (Medicine) is a Professor of Rehabilitation Research and an occupational therapist with a particular interest in preventing falls for older people. Pip is currently leading a large trial called Falls in Care Homes (FinCH). FinCH is exploring whether training care home staff in using a falls management tool can help to reduce falls and improve the quality of life for care home residents.
