The Conversation and Think: Leicester talking points: a range of topical issues tackled by academics between 1 - 9 August

Researchers funded by Action Medical Research are designing a tool to help children who were born prematurely with maths skills – and, as Dr Sarah Clayton from the Department of Health Sciences explains, they are looking for children, young adults and teachers to take part.

Professor Barrie Gunter from the School of Media, Communication and Sociology has written an article for Think: Leicester discussing the rise of binge-watching through new digital platforms.

Professor Jan Zalasiewicz from the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment has discussed the Earth's ancient climate with The Hedgehog & the Fox.

In an article for The Conversation, Dr Fabian Frenzel has discussed how the sharp injustice of gentrification is grossly demonstrated in Stokes Croft.
