Many GPs are ill-informed and unsupportive when tackling Britain's leading cause of blindness, new research reveals

Description
New research published today in the BMJ Open has found that patients experiencing degenerative eye disease are not receiving the information and support needed to manage, understand and treat their condition. It found the quality of GP's support in this area has declined, and lack of timely information from optometrists and eye specialists may be leading to more patients being registered sight impaired or severely sight impaired.

Practising subalternity: Postcolonial Tanzania, the Dar School and pan-African geopolitical imaginations

Date
20/02/2017
Location:
Moore Building Lecture Theatre
Description
Following Tanzanian independence in 1961, and especially during the period after the announcement of its intention to follow an independent path of African socialism after the Arusha Declaration in 1967, Julius Nyerere challenged the geopolitics of colonialism and the Cold War. Nyerere – and those he inspired – sought a voice for those previously marginalised from the imaginings of the world order, and proposed an alternative geographical imagination of a united Africa and an alliance of the poor. In this lecture, Professor Sharp will explore the challenge of bringing subaltern imaginations into academic and (geo)political practice during this period.

The Rise of the Scientific Society

The Rise of the Scientific Society

Date
21/02/2017
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Reflecting the increasing interest across Europe in what we now call science (the discovery of the natural world), Prince Federico Cesi founded the Accademei dei Lincei or Academy of the Linxes, the first Scientific Academy in Europe (1603). One of the early members of the Society was Galileo. The Society was the first to publish observations using both the telescope and microscope. After Cesi's death in 1630 the Society underwent difficulties including the trial of Galileo. By the 1650s the interest in natural philosophy (science) in England saw the foundation of the Royal Society under the patronage of the restored King of England Charles II, along with a periodical publication - the Philosophical Transactions (1665-). Both the RS and the journal remain today one of the most significant scientific fellowships in the world. This lecture will examine the historical context and legacy of these two societies.

The French Front National and the challenge to Europe's democracies

The French Front National and the challenge to Europe's democracies

Date
22/02/2017
Location:
Main Lecture Theatre (MLT)
Description
This timely event will discuss the challenge posed by Marine Le Pen's far right-wing Front National. Many seem to believe that this party along with a number of similar ones across Europe moderated their ideology and even became "mainstream". Is this the case? Did racism disappear? How would France's society eventually work under Le Pen? All this is assuming a relevance due to the French presidential election of April-May 2017, Donald Trump's breakthrough, and the coming elections in the Netherlands and Germany.
