Monday 22 November 2010 Middleton Hall, 6 pm Dr Roger Uglow Britain has a valuable export trade in live crustacean shellfish sent principally to France and Spain and, globally, this trade is huge. Anticipated trends include the development and expansion of novel, worldwide markets and new supply chain systems to service them. Delivering quality products consistently and costeffectively using humane, eco-friendly systems cannot be achieved by accident. It requires biological inputs aimed at providing the vital needs of the various species at all times. This has been the main research thrust of Dr Uglow and his team at the University of Hull, and the lecture will show that a humane system can be a profitable one.

Tuesday 12 October, 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 7 pm One of WW2’s most fascinating stories is that of the Enigma codes. The Germans believed them unbreakable. Nevertheless, at Bletchley Park the Allies read millions of German messages, providing reliable intelligence. To exemplify the importance of code breaking in winning the war, Dr Mark Baldwin uses the Battle of the Atlantic, a fierce conflict lasting six years and costing more than 60,000 lives. Dr Baldwin has been giving talks on the Enigma machine for over 10 years, and has recently been actively involved in selling books about Enigma and other aspects of cryptography, in travelling around the country giving lectures about the WW2 code breakers, and in demonstrating an original 1944 Enigma machine.

The Life and Times of Robert Blackburn, Aviation Pioneer, 1885–1955 Thursday 21 October 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 2 pm In this unique public seminar, Professor Robert Blackburn (Professor of Constitutional Law and Director of the Institute for Contemporary History, King’s College London) will give an illustrated talk on the life and times of his grandfather, to commemorate the Blackburn first-flight centenary year and refurbishment of the Robert Blackburn Building on the University’s Hull Campus. Robert Blackburn, OBE, FRAeS, was one of Britain’s earliest aviation pioneers and the founder of Blackburn Aircraft, the forerunner to BAE Systems at Brough. He started work on his first machine in 1909 and demonstrated determination and innovation throughout the following 46 years as the driving force behind Blackburn Aircraft. The Blackburn Aircraft factory and aerodrome on the Humber Estuary were famous features of the East Yorkshire region for over five decades. The site at Brough dates back to 1916, when the Blackburn Aeroplane & Motor Company built a new factory there. The company flourished through the war years, and the proximity of the River Humber meant that the factory was ideally situated for the launching of seaplanes. In the years between WW1 and WW2 the company’s reputation grew and in 1939 it became Blackburn Aircraft Ltd. In 1960 its aircraft production operation was absorbed into Hawker Siddeley and its engine operations into Bristol Siddeley, as part of the rationalisation of British aircraft manufacturers.

Is It a Good Idea to Patent Your Idea? Thursday 4 November 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 7 pm Dr Andrew Bradley, visiting the UK from the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland, Australia, will provide some practical insight into what patents are, what they are used for and why you might want one. In particular, he will give an ‘engineer’s perspective’ on the patent process and explore some of the contentious issues surrounding patents, such as software patents, patent trolling and submarine patents. He will also present data that highlights an apparently weak relationship between R&D expenditure and the number of patents an organisation is granted. He will further explore this issue by highlighting just two Australian companies that are making a business purely out of patents.

BLOODHOUND Wednesday 10 November 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 7 pm BLOODHOUND is an iconic engineering project to design and build the first supersonic car capable of achieving 1,000 mph and smashing the World Land Speed Record. David Rowley, Education Programme Director, will give an exciting introduction to the project and its ambitions. BLOODHOUND SSC has been designed to achieve speeds of up to 1,050 mph and, being jet and rocket powered, has 133,000 bhp (equivalent to 180 Formula One cars). Having completed the aerodynamic design, the project is entering the detail design and car build phase of the programme. This will lead to roll-out towards the end of 2011, UK runway trials in early 2012 and, finally, high-speed trials on Hakskeen Pan, South Africa, later that year.

Red Devils Wednesday 8 December, 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 7 pm Jacqueline Young will talk about her involvement in the Red Devils, the Parachute Regiment Freefall Team. She will cover her achievements and experiences to date – the funny and the hairy! She will go into the basics of the Parachute Regiment and their history.

The Design and Testing of the Neptune Proteus Tidal Stream Power Device Wednesday 15 December, 2010 Department of Engineering, Robert Blackburn Building, Hull Campus, 7 pm Professor Jack Hardisty and Glenn Aitken of Neptune Renewable Energy will give an introduction to the background and future of the Neptune Proteus Tidal Stream Power Device. Alternative energy sources for electricity generation are at the forefront of governmental policy. In the UK the Government has committed us to meeting a target of 10% of energy generation from renewable sources by 2010 and 20% by 2020 (DTI, July 2006). Much of this renewable energy so far has been derived from wind power since the technology is now well advanced and proven. Marine renewable energy is available in the waves and tidal currents of the coastal water around our shores. Marine renewable energy is clean and accessible with the right technology. Neptune Renewable Energy Ltd (NREL) is currently developing two second-generation, commercially focused technologies to exploit both the tidal and wave resource. These are the Neptune Proteus Tidal Stream Power Device and the Neptune Triton, a shallow-water wave power device. NREL has built a full-scale Proteus Demonstrator which was brought to the Humber in July 2010. Upon successful completion of trials with the Demonstrator, the world’s first tidal stream power array, consisting of advanced NP1500s, will be built and deployed during 2011/12.

Larkin: The End of the Line

The Afterlife of Philip Larkin

Thursday 2 December 2010 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 6 pm

Tuesday 5 October 2010 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 6 pm

Carol Rumens considers musicality in poetry and specifically in Larkin’s poetry. She goes on to discuss the ways in which melody is still relevant to 21st-century poetry, and attempts to trace those under-noticed writers who continue in what might be broadly called the lyric tradition.

Andrew Motion looks at the ways in which Philip Larkin’s reputation was changed by the publication of the Collected Poems, Selected Letters and his own biography and reflects on how it has continued to change in the last 25 years.

‘Suffered under Pontius Pilate’? Who Really Crucified Jesus? Wednesday 13 October 2010 Seminar Room, Graduate School, Hull Campus, 7.30 pm Dr Helen Bond, Senior Lecturer in Divinity, University of Edinburgh Dr Bond is one of the leading New Testament scholars of her generation and is a first-rate communicator. She is much in demand as a broadcaster on both radio and TV, most famously as a contributor to controversial documentaries on Jesus, the Virgin Mary and St Paul for Channel 4. In this lecture she will look again at the evidence surrounding the death of Jesus and the role of the famous Roman governor in it.

No Faith in ‘Religion’: Some Variations on a Kierkegaardian Theme Wednesday 10 November 2010 Seminar Room, Graduate School, Hull Campus, 7.30 pm Rt Revd Dr John Saxbee, Bishop of Lincoln It might seem odd to hear a Church of England bishop assert that there is too much religion around! But it is certainly the case that the word ‘religion’ is out of favour nowadays, with politicians, pundits and practitioners more likely to speak of ‘faith’ or ‘spirituality’. Perhaps surprisingly, anti-religious sentiment in this sense has a distinguished history in Christianity: in the 19th century, Søren Kierkegaard denied that Christianity was a manmade religion, seeing it rather as a radical challenge to all human institutions and constructs. Dr Saxbee will consider how the iconoclastic Dane’s message speaks to Church and society in 21stcentury Britain.

Climate Change from a Geologist’s Viewpoint

Tuesday 19 October 2010 Department of Geography, Hull Campus, 7.30 pm

Revd Dr Dee Dyas, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York

Frank Cox

The impact of Christianity on this nation’s heritage is immeasurable. But, ironically, while the UK heritage industry is increasingly recognized as a driver of economic regeneration in many areas of the country, the ability of the general public, in an ‘unchurched’ society, to interpret Christian buildings and other artefacts is diminishing. In this lecture, Dee Dyas will evaluate some of the strategies being pursued to address this problem. Dr Dyas is Director of the Centre for Christianity and Culture at the University of York. She is the author of several books, including Pilgrimage in Medieval English Literature (2001) and The Bible in Western Culture (2004), and is the editor of a series of interactive DVDs published under the title ‘Christianity and Culture’.

New Techniques in Geology

Christianity and the Theatre Wednesday 19 January 2011 Seminar Room, Graduate School, Hull Campus, 7.30 pm Dr Philip Crispin, Lecturer in Drama, University of Hull The Christian story of creation, fall, redemption and final consummation is inherently dramatic, and it is little wonder that generations of playwrights have engaged with this story in different ways. In this lecture, Philip Crispin will explore some themes from the rich topic of Christianity and the theatre. Dr Crispin has wide-ranging interests in both early-modern and modern anglophone and francophone drama, and has a particular interest in the interweaving of the sacred and the profane. He is also a freelance journalist who comments on a variety of cultural and religious topics. Further information Dr David Bagchi, Department of History, d.v.bagchi@hull.ac.uk, 01482 466548

Felix Whitham and His Contributions to Science

Blood, Fat and Gas: The Clot Thickens Monday 6 December 2010 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 6 pm Professor Khalid Naseem, Professor of Cardiovascular Biology The formation of a blood clot within an artery is known as arterial thrombosis. This usually aects individuals who already have atherosclerosis or narrowing of the arteries. Together atherosclerosis and arterial thrombosis are responsible for heart attacks, strokes and peripheral vascular disease. These diseases are the leading causes of mortality in the UK, and consequently they impose a signiďŹ cant burden of the National Health Service. As these diseases develop there is a progressive dysfunction of blood platelets. This lecture will examine the role of blood platelets in arterial disease and particularly how fat in the blood turns these protective cells into propagators of disease.

Institute of European Public Law Annual Lecture

Friday 12 November 2010 Room to be confirmed, Wilberforce Building, Hull Campus, 2.15 pm Stephen Tierney, Professor of Constitutional Theory, University of Edinburgh This lecture will address the growing use of referendums in Europe to settle matters of the highest constitutional importance. We have seen referendums used to distribute powers within states such as the UK and Spain, and to create new states from the collapse of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, the latest iteration of which was the Montenegrin referendum of 2006. The most widely publicised referendums in this new wave, however, have been those deployed in the process of European integration. This lecture will explore what the proliferation of direct democracy has to say about the nature of constitutional sovereignty and changing patterns of democratic representation in the contemporary European state, particularly as referendums are being used to reclaim popular sovereignty within states at a time when the European Union’s constitutional project seems to call into question the very viability of state sovereignty. Professor Tierney is Director of the Centre for Constitutional Law at the University of Edinburgh. He is a visiting professor in International Law at Seton Hall Law School, New Jersey, and in Political Theory at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.

Title of lecture to be confirmed Wednesday 24 November 2010 Venue to be confirmed Professor Philippe Sands, QC, University College London Philippe Sands is Professor of Law and Director of the Centre for International Courts and Tribunals at University College London. He is also a member of Matrix Chambers, where he has developed an extensive practice in international law, appearing before many international courts and tribunals in addition to the English courts. Professor Sands is extremely well known through his many, and regular, media appearances and through numerous publications in the field of international law – including his recent works, Torture Team: Uncovering War Crimes in the Land of the Free (2008) and Lawless World: America and the Making and Breaking of Global Rules (2005).

Philip Larkin: Life or Art? Wednesday 24 November 2010 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 6 pm James Booth In an early letter Larkin wrote: ‘in my character there is an antipathy between “art” and “life”’.

St John’s College Lecture

Dyslexia, Rhythm and Music Wednesday 20 October 2010 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 6 pm Professor Usha Goswami, Professor of Cognitive Developmental Neuroscience, University of Cambridge This lecture will show that the fundamental difficulty for children with dyslexia is in analysing the sounds of words. However, they have problems with speech rhythm as well as with letter-sounds, syllables and rhymes, and acoustic rhythm perception is a primary impairment. This suggests that music could offer useful remediation, as rhythm is more obvious in music than in language. Usha Goswami is a Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge, and Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, which carries out research into the brain basis of literacy, numeracy, dyslexia and dyscalculia. She was previously Professor of Cognitive Developmental Psychology at the Institute of Child Health, University College London, and, before that, University Lecturer in Experimental Psychology at the University of Cambridge. She received her PhD from the University of Oxford in 1987; her topic was reading and spelling by analogy. Her current research examines relations between phonology and reading, with special reference to the neural underpinnings of rhyme and rhythm in children’s reading. A major focus of the research is dyslexic and deaf children’s reading. She has received a number of career awards, including the British Psychology Society Spearman Medal, the Norman Geschwind-Rodin Prize for dyslexia research, and Fellowships from the National Academy of Education (USA) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany).
