A drunk man looks at the Bracken

Date: 15th June 2018
Time: 16:00 – 19:00

Venue: Jane Herdman Building

A retrospective look on a career in applied ecology setting useable targets, time-travelling and modelling my way through some of the land management problems of the day. . I will show how we set targets for building new ecosystems from scratch, keep pristine ecosystems safe from pesticides and some new work on the assessment of restored sites. I will then look at some long-term experiments illustrating how they can inform land management – rewilding, moor burning and finishing with bracken control. Some issues associated with the running of long-term experiments will be discussed. Along the way I will discuss some historic Liverpool Athena Swan and the importance of science in human culture.

Drinks reception to follow. All welcome.

Beyond The Pedestrian: Walking in Research, Theory, Practice and Performance

Date: 26th July 2018
Time: 10:00 – 16:30
Venue: Geographic Information Centre, 6th Floor, Roxby Building

A one-day interdisciplinary event focused on walking research, practice and culture. Our definition of walking is welcoming to all kinds of bodies and includes orthotics, sticks, wheels and other assistive technologies. This symposium is open to students, academics  and anyone else interested in exploring the more than pedestrian. We invite proposals for 20 minute paper presentations, but are also open to creative and innovative methods. We are also interested in facilitating a small number of walks.
