Posted by vm64 at Mar 29, 2011 11:50 AM |
The University Graduate School is continuing its annual showcase of outstanding PhD graduates with free lectures on 30 March.

The first lecture will be ‘"The Love of My Life": The Meaning and Importance of Sport for Female Fans' in which Dr Stacey Pope from our Department of Sociology will examine the largely unexplored area of how women experience and consume sport. 

She will focus on female football and rugby union fans and present their characteristics and the differences between the two.

In the second lecture Dr Armin Beverungen from our School of Management will explore the interrelationship between Marx and business schools to answer 'Whither Marx in the Business School?'.

He will look at different phases in the reception of Marx in the business school and the effect it has had on the understanding of capitalism and management.

The 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.

Please confirm your attendance by using the online booking form, by e-mailing pgevents@le.ac.uk or by calling 0116 223 1889. The numbers of attendees are needed for catering purposes.
