Speaker 1: Krishnanand Shukla (Sheffield Hallam University)
Title: Plasma Surface Modification: A way to improve the life of a joint body implant
The number of total joint replacement (JTR) such as hip and knee replacement has seen a linear increase in recent years, where around 89-91% of patients were found fit and healthy at the time of the first procedure. Also, NJR's last seven-year report on hip replacement shows that the most common sign for the operation was osteoarthritis which was recorded around 90-91% of the procedure. Most of these replacements are manufactured using metals such as Ti and Co alloy, and they have a specific lifetime (wear and tear). My work focuses on how we can improve the load-bearing capacity of the alloy by changing the surface microstructure and properties.
Speaker 2: Lauren Tuckerman (University of Sheffield)
Title: Does Innovation Work for You?
Traditionally economists and politicians have taken for granted that innovation is a good thing. However, as society faces increased inequality and climate change becomes more and more pressing is it a good time to look at whether innovation and innovation policy balances the economic, social and environmental? There are trade offs for each, but the question is, what do we want from innovators and the economy?
Speaker 3: Katherine Calvert (University of Sheffield)
Title: (Re)Imagining Motherhood in Weimar Germany
The Weimar Republic (1919-1933) was a period of rapid change in Germany and is often associated with social and cultural modernity. Yet, despite women gaining new voting rights and increasing access to the public sphere, conservative ideas about women’s domestic role remained widespread. My research studies Weimar-era fiction and non-fiction writing by women to uncover women’s attitudes towards motherhood during the Weimar period. In this talk I address the question of whether women’s writing from Weimar Germany reveals attempts to radically reimagine motherhood or a continued acceptance of conservative notions of women’s maternal role?
