How do our surroundings live into our memories? How do weapons of mass destruction affect humanity and our environment? Tonight we will hear from 2 top scientists delving into the world of memory and mass destruction to answer those questions about the environment we live in. Prepare for some extremely interesting discussions.

Mass Destruction: The Science of Irregular Warfare

Dr Becky Alexis-Martin (Lecturer of Peace and International Development)
Peace scientist, Becky Alexis-Martin has travelled the world to learn about the humanitarian and environmental impacts of weapons of mass destruction. From isolated Scottish islands contaminated with anthrax, to the most nuked place on the planet, Becky explores the science of the world’s most lethal weapons - and contemplates a more peaceful future.

Re-Walking the City: People with dementia remember

Dr Andrea Capstick (Honorary Visiting Researcher)
Psychogeography has been described as the impact of specific geographical locations (particularly urban spaces) on the emotions and behaviour of human beings. The talk will give a little background on the history of psychogeography before explaining its particular relevance in the context of dementia. I will draw on some of my previous publications on the subject, and on a new project currently in progress which involves local people who are living with young-onset dementia responding to images of the Bradford area taken by their contemporary, the photographer Ian Beesley.
