Public lectures are back at Brunel University London


Brunel University London is delighted to announce the return of its free Public Lecture Series, in which our leading academics will uncover the facts, fiction and fantasy behind some of the most important issues facing societies today.

Brunel’s expert panellists will tackle four distinct topics on the theme of “What Lies Beneath?” each Wednesday evening in February. We start the first debate on Wednesday 7 February at 6.30pm with “Plastic Pollution and the Planet – Stemming the Rising Tide”.

Environmental scientists Professor Susan Jobling and Professor Andreas Kortenkamp will be joined by media sociologist Dr Lesley Henderson to explore the damaging cocktail effect of chemicals, contaminants and plastics in our society and to ask whether there is a solution to the ever-growing problem of pollutants in our daily lives.

Other themes being explored in the series are:

– Trust in the Establishment – a crisis in confidence?
Me, Myself and AI – artificial intelligence and human identity
– Designing (for) Happiness – space, solitude and the senses

Please come along and join in. Everyone is very welcome, and there will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions.

Parking is free and there is a cash bar available from 5.30pm in the Eastern Gateway Atrium. Please join us after each debate for a drink and discussion.

Tickets are also free but please ensure you book a seat at or via each individual event below.

We look forward to seeing you!
