Public Lecture - William Twining - Law at Warwick in the 1970s
Room M2, WBS Training Centre, Radcliffe House, University of Warwick

Abstract: 'I joined the Law Faculty at Warwick on April 1st, 1972, almost four years after it started. However, since 1966 I had been involved in lengthy conversations with Geoffrey Wilson about English legal education, American Legal Realism, Law in Context and many related issues. In 1967 Wilson was appointed the Founding Professor of the Warwick Law School and it was his vision that guided the original undergraduate curriculum and the direction of the Law School in its early years. In this lecture I shall try to reconstruct this vision, how it related to other ideas such as American Legal Realism, law in context, cls, critical theory and socio-legal studies and how this vision was modified over time, raising questions about the extent to which a modern law school can have a coherent ethos. The lecture will be mainly about ideas, rather than events or personalities, but it may be punctuated by a few anecdotes'

Warwick Words Festival: House Satire in the Dock - Restaging the Hone Trials of 1817
The Ballroom, The Court House, Warwick

Tickets: £6

In December 1817 the radical publisher and satirist William Hone was put on trial by the government. He stood accused of blasphemous libel for publishing - and likely writing - three political parodies of the church liturgy that mercilessly attacked both Lord Liverpool’s cabinet and the Prince Regent. Hone faced three trials (one for each parody) across three consecutive days at the Guildhall in London.

He conducted his own defence and against all the odds, including the bias of the presiding judges, he was thrice acquitted in what was a significant triumph for the freedoms of speech and press.

To mark the 200th anniversary of the trials, academics and students from the University of Warwick will mount a staged re-enactment of this courtroom drama using verbatim testimony.

Part of the University of Warwick Tea Time Talks at the Warwick Words Festival.

Public Lecture: The ocean bacteria that control the world!

Freeflow Free Festival of the Written and Spoken Word
University of Warwick

To celebrate our partnership with The Sunday Times/Peters Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award, we couldn’t resist the temptation to create a day of events and workshops here on campus, exploring a mini kaleidoscope of written and spoken word (or at least as much as we could fit into a day).
This is an opportunity to bring together inspirational thinkers, authors, journalists and performers to share what’s fresh, controversial and relevant today. There’ll be debates, presentations and workshops looking at writing in its many forms. Our aim is to explore and provoke: in short, to celebrate the vibrancy of language.

Join us for a fun, varied and stimulating day on Wednesday 29th November. All events are FREE but booking is required.

​How can we boost digital creative industries in Coventry?
WBS

New research undertaken jointly by Warwick and Coventry Universities suggests that digital creative businesses earn around £0.5bn in Coventry each year. Future growth may be limited, however, by a lack of coherent strategy and planning as well as challenges related to skill availability and suitable premises. Come along, hear about the new research, and have your say on what needs to be done.

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.

This event is part of the Coventry and Warwickshire Business Festival.
