As part of a series of events to inaugurate the new School of Arts and Humanities at St Mary’s University College, an evening is being held to present a selection of the work of the Research Fellows appointed in the School since 2012. The evening, which is being held on Wednesday 25th September, will celebrate the research work of lecturers and professors across the School and to show St Mary’s growing depth and diversity in research. In 2011, St Mary’s appointed a number of Research Fellows and this celebratory evening is an opportunity for the School and the rest of the University College to meet with, and hear from some of the Fellows. It will also demonstrate how they are contributing not just to the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), but the wider research culture at St Mary’s. Starting at 6.30pm, there will be four short presentations by Dr Stephen Rainey (Philosophy), Prof Mary Hickman (Irish Studies), and Prof Charles Barr (Film) on their areas of expertise, whilst Prof Pauline Foster will speak about her research collaboration with Prof Peter Skehan on Applied Linguistics. The evening will also see the formal launch of The New Bioethics – A Multidisciplinary Journal of Biotechnology and the Body, a new journal from St Mary’s Centre for Bioethics and Emerging Technologies. Edited by Dr Trevor Stammers, the journal seeks to reclaim bioethics as a diverse and multidisciplinary project. It covers issues such as assisted reproduction, genetics, regenerative medicine (including the use of stem cells), cognitive enhancement and technologies which have enabled human tissue to be taken, stored, manipulated and used for biomedical purposes. There will also be a selection of books on display, which have been published by academics and practitioners from across the School’s varied disciplines. The School of Arts and Humanities is hosting a series of forthcoming events including the launch of the new Centre for the Philosophy of History on Tuesday 1st October from 1 – 3pm, and a public lecture about Oscar Wilde by Prof Ruth Robbins (Leeds Metropolitan University) on Wednesday 9th October at 6.30pm.
