Professorial Inaugural Lecture, Prof. Paurav Shukla - Beyond Bling - Luxury Consumption Across Time & Cultures (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2019-11-27T18:00:00+00:002019-11-27T20:00:00+00:00

Consuming for status and showing-off of luxury goods has become a defining element of new consumerist societies. However, status directed consumption is not a recent phenomenon. From the extravagance and excesses of ruling elites in earlier societies to the new business maharajas, status directed consumption has been well observed and documented. However, with the increase in the standard of living beyond wealthy elite, status consumption has percolated through to the masses who are attempting to adopt profligate lifestyles globally. For example, brands such as LVMH, Gucci and so on have seen phenomenal growth in the last two-three decades. This inaugural professoriate lecture attempts a brief review of the historical trends relating to status consumption and presents several studies conducted over the last decade focusing on status consumption in the developed and emerging markets. They offer a novel account of surprising similarities and differences in motives for luxury consumption worldwide.

2019-12-02T18:30:00+00:002019-12-02T19:30:00+00:00
We need to talk: Public engagement is critical for effective, efficient, and morally defensible, scientific advance. Most areas of scientific advance can be improved by well-considered, well-structured , and well-executed public engagement and the earlier that engagement starts the better. Some may suggest simple “education of the masses” is useful when there is a need to get the message out, but there are many situations where the experts need to be listening, and both sides must be open to consider new perspectives. Different methods of public engagement including dialogue, co-production, and citizens’ forums will be discussed.

For 1st Year PGR students

All 1st year PhD’s are required to create a Data Management Plan (DMP). Keeping your data safe, findable and re-usable is essential to good research.  Planning this from the start helps not only the sharing of data in the longer-term, but ensures that it is available for you as the primary researcher to find and use as you begin to write up your thesis or article.

Vice Chancellors Compensation and University Performance (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2019-12-11T18:00:00+00:002019-12-11T20:00:00+00:00

Using a sample of UK universities from 2001 to 2016, we find that high remuneration packages contribute to higher university performance. Particularly, a one standard deviation increase in Vice Chancellor (VC) pay is associated with an increase of 2.21% in university performance index. Also, Knighthood by Her Majesty the Queen or other prestigious rewards increase institution performance. In addition, we document that while VCs with general human capital receive higher pay, they decrease the performance of their universities. Our results suggest that the positive impact of pay on performance concentrates among universities with external promoted VCs with managerial discretion. The positive effect of VC general managerial skills on compensation is more pronounced for universities with young VCs with foreign experience. The results are also confirmed after controlling for self-selection bias and other various tests.

Britain and Human Rights: We Talk the Talk but do we Walk the Walk?
 
This year our speaker is Martyn Day, a British solicitor specializing in international, environmental and product liability claims.
 
Britain has been at the forefront of the development of human rights from the Magna Carta to the Human Rights Act and British Multi Nationals have been at the forefront of developing CSR policies for their subsidiaries operating around the world. Despite all of that how are we actually when it comes to human rights? The fact that the International Criminal Court is investigating the role of the British Army in Iraq following the 2003 War does not speak well of our country as does not the time after time when our companies have been found to have left their decency in this country rather than apply our standards to foreign situations.
All and more to be explored.
 
RSVP by 1pm on 9 December 2019
This event is free however you must register to attend and receive joining instructions. This is a very popular lecture so please ensure you register soon to avoid disappointment. If the lecture is fully booked please email Tracy Storey to be added to the waiting list.

DATES:8-10 January 2020 VENUE: Chilworth Manor, Southampton REGISTRATION: £300 Accommodation available at discounted rate A short introductory course in basic epidemiological methods is planned for January 2020. The topics to be covered in the course are given in the table below and the aim is to provide a broad overview of the main epidemiological principles and methods as well as to give an insight into the practical issues involved in conducting research. Longer courses are available elsewhere but we feel that there is need for a short introductory course that allows clinicians and others working in health-related disciplines to gain a feel for the issues involved in epidemiological research. The course is open to people from a wide range of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds who are interested in research and want to gain a grasp of the basic principles. The examples used in the course will be from a wide range of disciplines. The course is led by Dr K Kumaran and Professor Janis Baird. Both have a background in public health and epidemiology and have contributed to the course over many years and have long experience of teaching a range of subjects. Contributors to the course include Professor Hazel Inskip, who previously led the course over many years, Drs Holly Syddall, Sarah Crozier, and Georgia Ntani, all of whom have backgrounds in epidemiology and statistics and extensive teaching experience. Drs Sofia Strömmer and Wendy Lawrence will provide an introduction to qualitative research. Other experienced members of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit will contribute to leading the practical sessions. The format of the course will generally be short introductory lectures on each main topic followed by a practical session in which participants will work through the issues raised by considering real examples of epidemiological studies. Each session builds on knowledge acquired in previous lectures and practicals and so there is an expectation that participants will attend all of the lectures and practicals. A general epidemiological lecture is presented on the first evening to give an overview of a career in research; Professor Cyrus Cooper, the Director of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit will deliver a special lecture outlining the story of the development of his research programme.

Bias in expert decision making (18:00)

2020-01-29T18:00:00+00:002020-01-29T20:00:00+00:00
In many domains experts are called upon to provide research and analysis. Their expert judgment and decision making is often regarded as error-free, or at least as being objective and impartial. Drawing from the field of criminal justice, I will present research and evidence from real casework that many different types of biases affect experts, including fingerprinting and DNA forensic laboratory decision making. Forensic evaluations are highly impacted (and can be distorted) by irrelevant contextual information, reference materials, base rate, organisational factors, or even by the context in which information is presented or obtained. I will articulate the psychological mechanisms by which experts make biased and erroneous decisions and describe how this research can assist in identifying such weaknesses and in providing practical ways to mitigate them..

Speaker information
Dr Itiel Dror is a cognitive neuroscientist who received his PhD from Harvard in the area of cognitive factors in human expert performance. His academic work relates to theoretical issues underlying human performance and cognition. Dr Dror's insights and understanding of the human brain and cognitive architecture underpin his applied work where he translates it into practical and tangible ways to improve human performance in real world domains. This applied research has primarily focused on enhanced cognition through training, decision-making, and use of technology. He has worked with experts in various domains and with a wide range of organisations in a numerous of countries. His research has demonstrated that specific components in the cognitive underpinning of expertise entail vulnerabilities. In the forensic domain Dr. Dror has led to the understanding that the perceptions and cognitions of the human examiner play a key role in forensic work. Building on these insights he developed unique ways to combat these weaknesses and improve expert performance. Dr. Dror has published over 120 peer-reviewed articles specifically looking at cognitive factors that mediate human expert performance. More information is available at: www.cci-hq.com.
