Centenary events

Difficult Conversations

From November 2021 to July 2022 we held a series of thought-provoking and informative free public talks, ‘Difficult Conversations’.

Our academics and guest speakers covered off topics including hate crimes and nuclear weapons to understanding more about the menopause, and climate change - sparking debate along with providing a fascinating insight into how, as Citizens of Change, we are addressing the global issues that affect us all.

The series were hosted by Gary Dixon, Pro-Chancellor and Chair of the University’s Council, and Professor Sarah Davies, Head of the College of Science and Engineering, and were facilitated by Turi King, Professor of Public Engagement and Genetics, and co-presenter with Stacey Dooley of BBC Two’s DNA Family Secrets.

We are developing more exciting talks to take place over the coming 12 months, so watch this space for more details.

If you missed our first series of talks, you can watch back on demand.
