On the 23rd June 2016, the CEH held an interview between science fiction author Alastair Reynolds and Jonathan Heron from Warwick. Their conversation touched on science, creativity and recent blockbuster science fiction such as Interstellar and Moon. Visit the Forbidden Planets Interview page to find it.
Owing to a low number of sign-ups, the Forbidden Planets roundtable discussion with author Alastair Reynolds has unfortunately had to be CANCELLED.
The CEH will instead be recording an interview with Alastair, discussing his work in the context of habitability. This interview will be posted on the website in the near future.
We apologise to all who were looking forward to the event.
The CEH is pleased to announce the launch of its "Concepts of Habitability" competition, exploring concepts of habitability both on Earth and other worlds.
We invite submissions from all students, both postgraduate and undergraduate, in any medium. Entries must fit within an A1 display area, and judging will take place in the Teaching Grid on Thursday 23rd June, 5pm to 6pm. The winning entry will be awarded prize money (in Amazon vouchers) of £100, with extra prizes in additional subcategories.
More information is available at the competition webpage.
The CEH is pleased to announce the launch of a new, monthly seminar series: "Visions of Habitability".
The seminar series will feature short research papers, primarily from members of the CEH (with occasional invited speakers), and will feature a significant period of time dedicated to discussion. All are welcome.
The first seminar will take place on the 8th of March, and will feature a paper by Chloe Pugh.
The CEH have submitted a proposal to the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) at Warwick for funding of a habitability seminar series.
