Public Lecture Series 2013-14 Following on from the success of last year’s Public Lecture Series, the Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences (IRCAHS) at the University of Huddersfield will be holding another series of free public lectures on a broad range of subjects.

Varying in topics from delayed cancer diagnosis, elder care, child sexual abuse, crime, fatherhood, family support and politics, the lectures are open to all and will commence in October 2013, running right through to July next year.

The Institute undertakes excellent research in areas relating to; contemporary citizenship, evidence-based policy and practice for promoting health, welfare and crime reduction, social and political identities, and the development of applied social sciences, aiming to have direct relevance to individuals, families, groups and society.

The Institute firmly believes in circulating its research and findings as widely as possible and trusts the Public Lecture Series has the ability to do just that.

Professor John Playle, Dean of the School of Human and Health Sciences states, “I am delighted to extend an open invitation to our latest Public Lecture Series commencing in October 2013. The series provides an opportunity to learn about some of the exciting research being undertaken within the Institute.”

Further information regarding the 2013-14 Public Lecture Series including dates and locations will be displayed on the IRCAHS events webpage over the coming weeks.
