'Lesbian Life Stories: Stuck in the Past? On the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimonies (ALOT)' This years lecture will be given by Professor Elise Chenier, Professor of History at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. This 2016 Stonewall lecture from a leading historian of sexuality and gender will explore and explain lesbian experience as captured in three decades of oral histories. In the 1990s the discipline of history, once a leader in LGBT studies, was overtaken by literary and cultural studies, and 'life experience' fell out of academic fashion. Professor Chenier will show that “lesbian” remains a useful category of analysis and that life stories continue to have a transformative effect, playing a key role in constructing the LGBT community. This lecture will be chaired by Professor Mark Cornwall, Professor of Modern Europe History at University of Southampton. Elise Chenier is Professor of History at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, and an expert in the history of sexuality and oral history. Her first book, Strangers In Our Midst: Sexual Deviancy in Postwar Ontario (Toronto, 2008) was awarded an honourable mention for the Canadian Law & Society Book Prize. She has published widely in journals such as the Radical History Review, the Journal of Women's History, and Left History, and is the founder of the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony (alotarchives.org), an open-access digital archives, and interracialintimacies.org, a digital visualization of the research process and learning tool. She is currently writing a book on 'Same Sex Marriage in the USA, 1950-1987'. If you wish to attend this very popular lecture please register by 14 February for a place via the Online Store at http://go.soton.ac.uk/6z4 . Ensure you book soon to avoid disappointment! There will be a charity collection on behalf of Stonewall at the end of the lecture. Any further questions or queries please contact Tracy Storey on tps@southampton.ac.uk

Mindfulness practice involves various meditation practices and non-meditation exercise. Mindful meditation includes the practice of bringing attention to the body, breath, sensations, thoughts, feelings or whatever arises in each moment. By learning to be in a mindful state of mind it is possible to develop new strategies in dealing with difficult or stressful situation. Through commitment and repeated practice it is possible to train the mind to respond in ways that are helpful and supportive as opposed to unhelpful habits that we have developed in the past. Four Weeks of Mindfulness will run 23 February - 15 March, on Tuesday evenings from 17:00 - 18:30. This course is an introduction to mindfulness. It will give you the opportunity to attend on a weekly basis for 4 weeks and will be provided with access to recordings of practices that you will then do on a daily basis for the duration of the course.

The technology of lower limb prosthetics has evolved rapidly in recent decades. Owing to significant technological advancements, limb amputees can now be fitted with intelligent and powerful prosthesis which aims to restore and augment physical mobility and quality of life. However in view of the benefits from the significant technical advancement in components, how much do we understand the interface between the body and these machines? What are the challenges amputees still have to face daily? Where does the future lie?
 
The speaker will give a brief summary of the exciting development in lower limb prosthetics to-date. She will highlight the multifaceted challenges of interfacing technology with amputees and how assistive technologies have developed in these areas. She will consider the evolution of these challenges, how future technologies may provide answers, and how those technologies may provide answers, and how those technologies may extend into other areas to address global healthcare issues.

Part of our LGBT History Month series. A private screening of the crowdfunded film Credence presented by the director Mike Buonaiuto. Kindly arranged by Andy Cast (LGBT+ Network Chair, Head of HR Business Partnering and Campaign Director for HH4E). Redefining the way LGBT people are shown on screen, Credence tells the story of a family torn apart during the last evacuation on earth after violent storms have made survival impossible. The story follows two fathers’ decision to make the ultimate sacrifice to give up all their possessions to ensure the survival of their daughter, and the entire human race. With over 100,000 views and 600+ contributions, Credence’s crowdfunding campaign raised over £22,000 using Indiegogo to bring this story to the big screen at London’s Leicester Square in partnership with Wired Magazine.

Cohabitation and Marriage in the Americas: Geo-historical Legacies and New Trends (15:00)

2016-04-21T15:00:00+01:002016-04-21T16:00:00+01:00
Albert Esteve, Demographic Studies Center (CED), Spain
In this presentation, I document the very considerable rise in unmarried cohabitation in the Americas since the 1970s. I trace the social and geographic profiles of unmarried cohabitation to unveil the rich social and spatial heterogeneity in cohabitation. I show that the effects of social stratification, religion and ethnicity are continuing to be of major importance and that historical pattern of disadvantage is still in evidence, virtually everywhere in the Americas. This not only holds at the individual level but at the contextual level as well. In all countries for which contextual analyses could be performed with a finer spatial resolution, it was found that the contextual effects were highly significant and, even more importantly, entirely robust for controls for individual characteristics, which remind us that individuals have histories, but regions have much longer histories. Nevertheless, an entirely new wave of change started rolling over the pre-existing patterns from the 1970s onward. I will discuss the convergence of these trends to the Second Demographic Transition.

How paradoxical is the gender-and-health-paradox? (15:00)

15:00 - 16:00
2016-05-05T15:00:00+01:002016-05-05T16:00:00+01:00
Marc Luy, Vienna Institute of Demography
From the 1960s to the 1980s a common wisdom about differences between males and females in health and mortality emerged which was summarized by the well-known phrase "women get sicker, but men die quicker". Recently this wisdom has been increasingly questioned. Nevertheless, the general idea of a paradoxical relationship between health and mortality among women and men persists until today. The presented research aims at advancing the understanding of the paradox by demonstrating that the reverse relationship between sex on the one side and health and mortality on the other is not as paradoxical as it seems. Two factors are mainly responsible for causing this intuitive contradiction. First, the overall reversal in sex morbidity and sex mortality differentials occurs because several conditions that figure importantly in morbidity are not very important in mortality, and vice versa. Second, longevity is directly related to the absolute number of life years in ill health. Thus, women suffer from worse health than men do not in spite of living longer, but because they live longer. The second aspect has not been connected with the gender-and-health-paradox so far and combines this phenomenon with the ongoing "compression versus expansion of morbidity" debate.

How to make creative cross-curricular science outstanding (10:00)

2016-06-15T10:00:00+01:002016-06-15T16:00:00+01:00
Most teachers agree creative cross-curricular approaches capture children's interest and enhance learning experiences. However, poor links and a lack of teacher understanding of what sits at the heart of science can mean scientific content gets missed and the quality and quantity of enquiry can be lost. In the best schools the reverse can be true.
