A Week in China

I spent last week in China, four cities in six days. In a country of this size, that is not quite like ticking off cities in the East Midlands. But we have a very significant presence in China in one way or another, so most visits span a range of activities and range of geographies. …

Can judicial reforms reduce the incidence of torture in China?

Written by Jackie Sheehan. Former CIA agent Bob Baer famously identified the different purposes of America’s “extraordinary rendition” programme of torture out-sourcing, explaining that “If you want a serious interrogation, you send a prisoner to Jordan. If you want them to be tortured, you send them to Syria. If you want someone to disappear – never to …

CP1 at Kings Mill Hospital

Hi I’m Cat, and I’m a month away from finishing my first clinical placement (CP1) at Kings Mill Hospital (KMH) near Mansfield. There are about 40 medical students from my year here, and there are many reasons why being on placement outside is great (even if the idea seems pretty scary at first!)   We …

GPs and 7 day working

by Ian Shaw Cameron’s announcement of 7 day working 8am-8pm for the GPs by 2020 so soon after the Election may have been his way of reassuring the public that the NHS was safe in his hands, but it’s not really going to happen this parliament and there are a number of reasons for that: …

The First CLAS PG Symposium: 27-28 April 2015

Something that was often said amongst postgraduate researchers in our school was that we didn’t really know many people outside of our own individual departments. We sat in our separate PhD workspaces, divided by subject, and had a vague idea of what our neighbours were doing, but not much more than that.  So at the …

Everyone thinks that they’re a ‘Responsible’ Person. Where do you stand?

Written by: Christine A. Hemingway From time to time, everyone talks about their responsibilities. Whether it is looking after children, or elderly parents, or responsibilities to our siblings, or to our friends.

Making epigenetics public: A problem with metaphors

Two years ago, in May 2013, I wrote a blog post about epigenetics.

The Mediterranean crisis – is not like the slave trade.

An open letter signed by more than 250 academics and experts on slavery and migration from around the globe, has condemned the EU’s efforts to prevent migrants from leaving the North African coast saying this does not constitute a noble stand against the evil of slavery, or even against ‘trafficking’.

Love’s Sacrifice (RSC) @ The Swan Theatre, Stratford

It is a little dispiriting to find the first of this summer’s Swan plays is another Caroline revenge tragedy in which women are dragged around by their hair and thrown to the ground. This directorial shorthand for women-being-treated-badly is becoming worryingly de rigueur, and its shock-value diminishes with constant repetition and normalisation, especially at the …

Public Perceptions of Water Butt Usage for Flood Risk Management

As global urbanisation continues to occur, many urban areas are experiencing an increased risk from surface water flooding due to a reduction in permeable land and failure of surface water drainage systems (Lamond et al., 2012; Mitchell, 2012; CIRIA, 2012). In existing urban areas it can be hard to fit some of the more intensive sustainable …

Helping Creativity and Developing New Ideas and Perspectives in Support of Innovation

I heard recently that ‘innovation was often the result of the work of one or two men on their own’ -or something to that effect.

Thoughts from the TTP Conference – Sally Chappell (School of Life Sciences)

The TTP conference was a great opportunity to hear from like-minded colleagues and there’s certainly not enough room for me to mention everything that I found useful!

The Man-Eating Wolves of Renaissance Italy

In 1516, the town of Varese Ligure in north-eastern Italy experienced an “invasion of wolves.”  Antonio Cesena (b. 1507), a local canon and historian, recorded in his Relatio dell’origine et successi della Terra di Varese (c 1550s) that “a great fear arose about wolves [that] began a new and unaccustomed war, not against herds and …

The effects of weather extremes on the railways of Britain past, present and future.

The winter of 1963. In November 2014 I visited The National Archives (TNA) at Kew in London to undertake a period of focused research concerning the impact of the extreme winter of 1963 on British agriculture.

Living and Speaking Together: Conference organised by Luce Irigaray and Judith Still

Location: University of Nottingham Date(s): Saturday 20th – Sunday 21st June 2015  Many imagine that building a world culture requires us to use a conceptual and abstract universal language which would be capable of dominating the complexity of the world as it is today. Certainly, this corresponds to the way of reasoning of our past …

Doing things the French way

As silly as it sounds, one of the main challenges my fellow assistants and I have found is the different pace of life here in France. During the summer I experienced 5 weeks of living in a very traditional, French rural village and knew it was the norm for shops and café’s to have short …

Early Modern Medievalism: The End or Creation of the Middle Ages?

Post by Dr Mike Rodman Jones, School of English Albrecht Durer’s St Jerome in his Study (1513) is a seminal work in Renaissance art history.

Propaganda and Ideology in Everyday Life

The University of Nottingham and the British Library have joined forces to create a free online course looking at how propaganda and ideology fit in to everyday life.

What makes propaganda ‘real’? …

Get a global local education

One of the biggest innovations in international higher education in the past 15 years or so has been the growth in international branch campuses.

Exams are coming…

Naturally, the best way to prepare for exams is to know the course content, however the mental preparation is equally as important.

Skyscrapers, Mountains and Great Adventures; Studying Abroad at The University of Hong Kong

Success, but not the top jobs – not yet anyway
