Grab a pint and join us as we seek to answer big Physics questions, understand what's hidden on our fingertips and how creating narrative therapies has benefitted people back on Earth in Colombia. An eclectic mix of intriguing research is on the menu tonight at Pews!

Creative Narrative Therapies: Telling stories and being well in Medellín, Colombia

Dr Stephen Fay (Lecturer in Spanish)
Dr Stephen Fay's research uses a group storytelling method called TimeSlips to boost the mental health and wellbeing of people with dementia and their families in Medellín, Colombia. His talk will share participants' extraordinary stories and give some of you a chance to create your own therapeutic narrative. Stephen will explain the methodology, talk briefly about his results and then (hopefully) get some of the audience up for an en vivo therapeutic storytelling session.

Finding Hawking’s Blackhole Entropy at the Centre of Atoms: A New Thermodynamics Solves Big Physics Questions (and may save the world)

Michael Parker (Visiting Fellow)
Prof Chris Jeynes (Professorial Research Fellow)
Thermodynamics is pretty basic stuff: hot things get colder & we all die in the end. But we will show you a radically new thermodynamics based on geometry and shape that should fundamentally change how we do physics (and new ideas are needed given all the major problems we face).
One of the things Stephen Hawking is famous for is his discovery that black holes have a temperature (they’re glowing slightly), but this new shape-driven thermodynamics applies not only to DNA and even sub-atomic particles (see http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/andp.202100278), but also to cosmic black holes.
