Monday 2nd December – 1-2pm – Seminar Room, Byrne House

November 28, 2013 Leave a comment

You are invited to the next session of the Biological Interest Group on Monday 2nd December. As usual it will be held in the seminar room at Byrne House, from 1-2pm. Participants can bring lunch and drinks if they wish.

Samantha Hurn will be leading the session, which will be based on work entitled ‘Land of Beasts and Dragons: Anthropological Myth-Making in Rural Wales’.

Sam stresses that this is a rough draft. She would like the group to offer comments including whether it makes sense, whether she is trying to cover too much and therefore not really addressing any aspect in enough detail and whether the ‘science versus performative knowledge’ argument is too simplistic, and how it might be developed/improved.

The article can be obtained by emailing Jim Lowe at jwel201 [at] ex.ac.uk – As this is a work in progress please do not disseminate further without Dr Hurn’s express permission.

Monday 18th November – 1-2pm – Seminar Room, Byrne House

You are invited to the next session of the Biological Interest Group on Monday 18th November. As usual it will be held in the seminar room at Byrne House, from 1-2pm. Participants can bring lunch and drinks if they wish.

Nadine Levin will be leading the session, which will be based on work entitled ‘What’s Being Translated in Translational Research? Making and Making Sense of Data Between the Laboratory and the Clinic’.

The paper is an adapted (and abbreviated/condensed) version of the fifth chapter of her dissertation, which details all of the fun complexities and negotiations involved in making and making sense of data in metabolomics (particularly with reference to multivariate statistics).

What she’d like particular comments on are (1) are there any places people get confused because of density/lack of explanation, and (2) how can she really emphasize the main points and relate them to slightly bigger issues in the conclusion.  Other than that, Nadine is happy to have any and all forms of constructive criticism (keeping in mind the paper has to be less than 8000 words including all notes and references).

The article can be obtained by emailing Jim Lowe at jwel201 [at] ex.ac.uk – As this is a work in progress please do not disseminate further without Nadine’s express permission.
