  • Athlete Z

    Athlete Z: Where will we draw the line on athlete welfare in sport?

    Thursday, 29 October 2020 13:00 to 17:00

    Over recent years there has been an increasing public concern with the ethical practices of professional sport, the way athletes are treated and to what extent sporting organisations will go to in the pursuit of success. In 2017, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson led a review into sports duty of care, highlighting an array of ways sport should prioritise athlete’s welfare. That said, issues still remain and ethical concerns across performance sport are still at the forefront of media and public attention. Netflix Original, Athlete A has raised the curtain again on abuses in sport and this has been followed by a wave of ex-athletes who have bravely told their own experience of bullying, fear, abuse and maltreatment. This symposium looks to bring together leading academics to freely and assertively address some of the greatest concerns facing (professional) sport today, with the intention of developing achievable solutions.

    The search for the Truth: Israel and its place in the world

    Wednesday, 25 November 2020 18:00 to 19:30

    Israel: Sovereign state or irritating intruder? Inspiration or interloper? Goliath or David? Melting pot or militant power? Or, just possibly, all of the above? No country on earth provokes such instinctual, visceral, passionate and - apparently - contradictory responses. John Dunston will explore the questions of where Israel belongs and what its purpose may be; its astonishing achievements and its parallel problems; and whether, depending on your point of view, Israel can become - or continue to be - a light to the nations. He will present the two sides of the invaluable coin that is......Israel.

    Dementia: forget about a cure, focus on care and future prevention

    Monday, 30 November 2020 18:00 to 19:00

    Join the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences for their annual research lecture, delivered by Dame Professor Louise Robinson. The biggest risk factor for developing dementia is age, with dementia now the most common cause of death in women over 65 years of age in the United Kingdom (UK). Our ageing populations mean that the number of people with dementia globally is predicted to rapidly increase, although research from the UK and Europe has shown that modification of key lifestyle factors may positively influence this. Over the last decade, the UK has had a strong policy focus on dementia, initially via a National Dementia Strategy and followed by Prime Minister’s National Dementia Challenge. This led to the creation of the unique £200 million UK National Dementia Research Institute, with a main focus on finding the ‘cure’ and/or novel dementia drug therapies. Professor Robinson will discuss why future research should be as equally focused on improving the quality of dementia care and targeting future prevention as exploring the elusive cure.
