Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Public Lecture Programme launches online

On the 14th May, CLL launched the first in a series of free online public lectures to showcase some of the ground-breaking and innovative research which is ongoing within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS).

The first in the series, ‘Another Person’s Poison: Using History to Understand Food Allergy’ was delivered by Professor Matthew Smith, the Vice-Dean of Research in HaSS. Over 30 students joined in the informative and engaging online lecture which used history to trace how food allergy has emerged as one of the most controversial health problems of today. The lecture is now available on the CLL website to view.

There has been very positive feedback to this new online experience and CLL plan to continue to offer more of these diverse lectures over the coming months. Look out for information on our next lecture on Wednesday 24th June, ‘Stand-up for you bones’ by Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi, a Senior Lecturer in Physical Activity for Health, coming soon.
