Double bill of public lectures on literature and museums
This event is part of the annual Doctoral Inaugural Lectures programme celebrating the excellent work of PhD students here at the University.
Dr Emma Staniland from our School of Modern Languages will analyse how the twentieth century Spanish American women’s fiction has contributed to the understanding of gendered identity as a social construction through its portrayal of gender.
In the second lecture Dr Susan Baldino from our School of Museum Studies will demonstrate how museums can be learning environments for a diverse population including learners with autism spectrum disorders. This will be illustrated with a social learning model she developed and tested, which proved to be successful.
The two half-hour lectures, which are free and open to all, will start at 5.30pm in the Lecture Theatre 3 of the Ken Edwards Building. A free wine reception will follow in Cafe Piazza, on the ground floor of the Charles Wilson Building.
