2016-10-15T10:00:00+01:002016-10-15T16:00:00+01:00
This year marks the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, the most famous battle in English history. To commemorate this event, Lifelong Learning at the University of Southampton will be hosting a study day on the battle and its legacy. No prior knowledge of this period in history is necessary, so why not come along and join us for a day of fascinating talks, with some of our leading academics? The Norman Conquest was a seismic moment in the history of England, its legacy can be found in the words we speak, the monuments they left behind and the names that we give to our children. In this study day we will examine the impact of the battle through the surviving sources, in particular the Bayeux Tapestry. We will also look at Anglo Saxon literature and examine how this was affected by the conquest, asking the question was this really the death of Anglo Saxon England? Moving on, we will discuss the Doomsday book, a unique insight into life in England post-conquest, as well as a useful tool to maximise revenue from taxation! Lastly, we will look at the most striking landmark the Normans have left us, the castle. This study day will be held on Saturday 15 October 2016 at Avenue Campus at the University of Southampton. To find out more, please see the programme in the useful documents section, or if you have any queries please email the Lifelong Learning team.

2016-11-25T13:00:00+00:002016-11-25T14:00:00+00:00
My background is in Soil and Water Science from the University of California at Riverside. I am a pollution scientist with an interest in understanding its effects on microbial ecology and function in soil and water systems. In most cases, my research is leaning towards the 'applied' with a policy relevant angle, such as the studies I've conducted into characterising the nature and effects of large-scale pharmaceutical use (e.g. antivirals, such as Tamiflu, and antibiotics), during an influenza pandemic. Current research aims to better understand the drivers of antibiotic resistance in the environment and their implications to ecosystems and human health. I maintain activity in the field of wastewater epidemiology, which aims to understand human behaviour and health through the analysis of sewage, e.g. pathogen incidence and prevalence, drug compliance. I also contribute to one of CEH's flagship projects, COSMOS-UK, which is a UK soil moisture monitoring network based on an experimental cosmic ray soil moisture sensor.

Film has from its very first days been a way of relaying images of travel and escape. From early travelogues in exotic lands to fantastical visions of imaginary worlds, cinema provides an invitation to explore distant realities, as well as to see the world around us anew. This study day will delve into the importance of journeying to film, as seen in genres like the road movie, sci-fi and fantasy as well as documentary realism. It will consider the journeys taken by film itself, from financing and shooting to distribution and exhibition across global networks of festivals and film theatres. It will offer ways of understanding movies as moving pictures, demonstrating the artistry of films in producing thrilling speed and epic action or their opposite, stasis. In an age of global interaction and migration, it will also provide insight into the political and ethical issues surrounding film, both as an industry and as a way of commenting upon our contemporary lives.

I am interested in understanding the processes controlling water flow in soils and plants. My hypothesis is that the root-soil interface, where soil and plants meet, is a central region in soil-vegetation process. Although it is a small-scale process, it has significant applications for water use efficiency, agriculture, plant breeding and grass lands. My recent studies showed that the soil near roots, the rhizosphere, has particular properties that favour root water uptake from drying soils. However, the rhizosphere may ultimately turn hydrophobic after being dried. What are the consequences for root water uptake? Is this a strategy of plants to isolate roots from dry soils? Could the rhizosphere hydrophobicity affect soil moisture dynamics at larger scale (evaporation, preferential flow, etc…), as well as vegetation patterns?
