Science Public Lecture

Date: Thursday 21 January 2021 

Speaker: Professor KL Cheung

Title: Optimising the management of older women with breast cancer

 Abstract: The Nottingham Prognostic Index developed in the 1970s-1980s has been widely used internationally for the management of breast cancer in women under the age of 70 years. Although the majority of breast cancer cases are found in the older population which is rapidly expanding, older women tend to be under-represented in research studies. Professor Cheung saw the gap and started developing a dedicated research programme in Nottingham. In this lecture, he will share his passion and research journey on how to optimise the management of older women with breast cancer.

Is the university colonial? Critical conversations on its future.

Date: Monday 15 February 2021 17:00 

Speakers: Stacy Johnson Ph,D MBE, Hannah Robbins Ph.D, Saran Stewart Ph.D, Glenn Mitoma Ph.D, Michael Bradford 

Abstract: In a three-part series, "Is the University colonial?: Critical Conversations on its past, present and future", the University of Nottingham’s Institute for Policy and Engagement and the University of Connecticut's Office of Global Affairs are hosting three online panel discussions, each with a focus on decolonising education. Speakers are examining the role that universities have had in cultivating racism and (settler) colonialism, the present challenges they face in disbanding unequal and oppressive narratives, as well as the future opportunities to contribute meaningfully to an anti-racist and anti-colonial agenda.

This third and final session will consider the future with experts debating the future opportunities that we have to meaningfully change the course of history.
