    Professor Steven King Inaugural Lecture

    The welfare state: present, past and (?) future

    Networking | Public lectures

    31 January 2023

    5.30 pm - 7.30 pm

    This lecture draws on the lessons of Professor King's multi-book project linking history and policy across the entire duration of the British welfare state (1601-2023). It explores the historical roots of welfare dilemmas that are currently constructed in presentist terms and asks what lessons history might hold for the future (if there is one) of the British welfare system.

    Professor James Devlin Inaugural Lecture

    I used to be a banker but lost interest: Reflections from an accidental academic

    Networking | Public lectures

    2 February 2023

    5.30 pm - 7.30 pm

    In this lecture, Jim will reflect on how his experience of working in the banking sector in the late 1980s and early 1990s sparked a lifelong interest in consumers, firms and policy in the financial services sector. Jim will explain his motivations for moving from banking into academia and how that happened. Jim will relate his research interests to his prior experiences and provide an insight into some of his main research themes.

    Professor Piers Thompson Inaugural Lecture

    The Prospects for Levelling Up: Regional Influences from Culture and Personality

    Networking | Public lectures

    13 February 2023

    5.30 pm - 7.30 pm

    This lecture considers the research that has examined the influence of culture and personality at the local or regional level on development, as these are likely to be associated with social and institutional capital. These softer factors are found to be highly persistent and unevenly spread geographically in countries such as the UK.
