Assessing The Legacy of Thatcherism

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Not required

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
18:30 - 21:00

Location:
The Showroom, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield

What has been the legacy of Thatcherism?  More than three decades after Mrs Thatcher's first government, and with the advantage of hindsight that was unavailable to earlier commentators, it is time for a reappraisal of the policies and legacy of the period 1979-1990 – an assessment which is all the more pressing given the recent death of Margaret Thatcher herself, and the mood of national reflection and discussion it provoked. 

This round table  discussion takes stock of the concept of ‘Thatcherism’ and the prominent role it has played in the history of post-war Britain, from a broad range of social science perspectives.  The participants - Andrew Gamble, Alan Walker, Carole Walker, Danny Dorling, Adrian Bingham and Stephen Farrall – will discuss and share ideas about the ways in which the policies of the Conservative administrations from 1979-1990 and 1990-1997 may still be influencing us today.

Children will have an opportunity to view the data and discuss the findings in a separate, age-appropriate session. In the second part of the workshop, a professional artist will demonstrate to industry professionals and children ways of making simple animations of characters from story/ game apps. Professionals and children will then work together in small groups to better understand the issues of media production and application.  Organised by Dr Dylan Yamada-Rice

This seminar aims at demonstrating how in adopting SCEnAT ( Supply Chain Environmental Analysis) (http://www.scenat.com) companies can gain an understanding of the critical hot spot of GHG emission within the supply chain and identifying tools to reduce the impact of such emissions. SCEnAT uses the most advanced Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and provides a systemic view for modelling supply chain and decision making.  It allows companies to account for carbon emissions and management across the product supply chains by identifying methodological shortcomings in existing tools and proposing a supply chain (SC) framework which provides businesses with a holistic understanding of their supply chains.

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Not required

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
19:00 - 21:00

Location:
Quaker Meeting House, 10 James Street, Sheffield

Wars, genocide, dictatorial governments, dreadful famines…These are some of the scenarios that generally come to mind when thinking of Human Rights (HR) violations. However, abuses, discrimination and violence are widespread as well in our relatively wealthy and pacific societies. This event aims at tackling the dominant narrative on HR in British society, inviting the audience to explore the blurred boundaries of HR in practice. This will be achieved by bringing together several techniques - storytelling, presentation and audience participation. These elements will propose an analysis of HR violations drawn from the stories and related to local, national and global issues.

The Ethics of Knowledge Exchange

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Via website

Suitable for:
Professionals as part of their work

Time:
15:00 - 17:00

Location:
Richard Roberts Building, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, S3 7HF

The issue of ethics and how we carry out business is a huge issue within Higher Education. According to Robert Dingwall, Professor of Social Science at Nottingham Trent University, "a 'free' social science research base is as important to a healthy democracy as a free press. But in the past decade, UK and international funders have required universities to vet all research involving human subjects via institutional ethics committees".  Universities have many policies and procedures for dealing with ethics, especially in the area of research, however, these policies are not always so visible when it comes to conducting Knowledge Exchange (KE) activities.  This event aims to look at some of the issues surrounding ethics in KE and how they should be addressed, what questions should be asked, and how do we decide if something is ethical or not?

Many young people are passionate about humanitarian issues, from war to famine, and often play important roles in fundraising activities and in raising awareness.  Our aim is to provide a practical workshop as a “taster” to pre-university students, giving them both a basic understanding of the context of international aid work and a flavour of what it is like to work in a humanitarian emergency. The workshop will be predominantly based around a practical simulation exercise of working a humanitarian emergency, exposing them to both the challenges and successes. This practical exercise will be complimented by sessions on “why is our involvement important?” and “how can you get involved?”.

The Big Open Data Debate

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Via website

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
17:30 - 19:30

Location:
ICOSS, University of Sheffield, 219 Portobello, Sheffield

This is an afternoon/evening event for policy makers, the business community and third sector on the politics of open data. The debate will focus on how to facilitate productive collaboration between citizen-led community groups and open data communities, specifically linked to increased interest in urban agriculture. This draws on British and American examples: notably 596 Acres’ work on using US land registry data to identify 596 acres of potential growing land, actively engaging citizens in turning it to agricultural use. Better understanding the potential of citizen engaged open data plays a crucial role in future developments in this area.

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Via email

Suitable for:
Professionals as part of their work

Time:
17:30 - 19:30

Location:
The Management School, Conduit Road, Sheffield

This workshop event seeks to expose the misconceptions and myths of export and internationalisation of SMEs. The event is based on on-going research of three colleagues (Dr Peter Rodgers, Dr Tim Vorley and Dr Rob Wapshott) at the Centre for Regional Economic and Enterprise Development (CREED), examining the nature of small business development growth. While there is an emphasis by the Government on export and internationalisation as a means of economic recovery, there is an ‘information gap’ that persists in how businesses understand and undertake such activities. By working with UKTI and the Sheffield Chamber of commerce this event will consider the practicalities faced by SMEs in the Sheffield City Region.

The Miners' Strike After 30 Years

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Not required

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
18:00 - 20:00

Location:
The Showroom, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield

The people of Sheffield will be invited to attend a discussion in preparation for the forthcoming anniversary of the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85. The events surrounding the death of Margaret Thatcher indicate that this period and the demise of coal mining in South Yorkshire evoke strong emotions and open up the possibility of the period being a contested commemoration. How a country, a city, a community commemorates its past says something about how it sees itself today. What will the commemoration of the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85 say about the identity of Sheffield and South Yorkshire thirty years after the Strike?

Visualising Data

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Not required

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
19:00 - 20:00

Location:
The Showroom, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield

The digital revolution has changed how we interact with information. On the one hand, we are exposed to so much information that it is difficult to digest all the facts that we encounter in our every day lives. On the other, new technologies have made it easier to visualise and share data, enabling us to distill facts into information that matters. As scientists, we deal in data but rarely make use of these technologies to communicate our ideas with society.  We explore the use of infographics and digital technology to share academic information with the wider public.

Nanny, Nudger or Therapist: Government's role in Changing Behaviour

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Not required

Suitable for:
General audience

Time:
19:00 - 21:00

Location:
Jessop West Exhibition Space, Gell Street, Sheffield

A public debate will be led by a panel of 5 experts to explore pressing questions raised by the government’s activities in promoting behaviour change.   Most research in this area centres on how to change behaviour. This sidesteps bigger questions.  Is changing our behaviour a legitimate aim for government? Who has decided that the model citizen should be exercise loving, emotionally literate and self-aware, abstemious, non-smoking, volunteering? Where should behaviour change policy begin and end?

Social Space And Organisations

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Invitation only

Suitable for:
Schools or colleges

Time:
09:00 - 17:00

Location:
Hillsborough College, Hillsborough Barracks, Sheffield

Social meanings of space are often taken for granted but exercise real and powerful effects on people’s daily lives. This proposed workshop applies critical thought to social space and its uses by: identifying space as social; highlighting what this means in terms of serving / hampering interests; identifying power inherent in social spaces and how they are contested; what effect this knowledge can have on students.  To explore this with Year 12 students (anticipate a group of 30) we will introduce the value of social science research, illustrating this with the example of social space.

Rethinking Ageism: Intergenerational Relations In Practice

The University of Sheffield

Booking:
Invitation only

Suitable for:
Professionals as part of their work

Time:
09:30 - 12:30

Location:
ICOSS, 219 Portobello, Sheffield

This event will form a lively debate around the issue of intergenerational relations. Researchers from the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth (CSCY) and the New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) will explore current debates around ageism from a different perspective. While current debates around ageism typically focus on the perceived stereotypes around older people, research conducted within CSCY found that young people increasingly felt that they are disadvantaged by stereotypes bound to them by their age. The event will showcase three research projects to share different perspectives on ageism and will close with a networking lunch culminating in a series of proposals for sharing best practice in intergenerational working.
