Library of Ideas - Thursday 27th October Events

There are to be a series of fascinating talks in the Library of Ideas over the coming week to further explore the themes of the Manchester Science Festival

At 10 am on Thursday 27th October, Jessica Kevill, PhD Student in Honey bee research, will deliver a talk entitled 
'The Decline of the Honey Bee'.  High overwinter mortalities of European honey bees (Apis mellifera) have been reported each year in the UK since the arrival of parasitic mite Varroa destructor. This talk will focus on the different variants of deformed wing virus and how they interact with honey bee colonies in the UK. 

At 12pm, Dr Mark Widdowson, Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy, will be delivering a talk entitled 'Psychotherapy and counselling: do they really work?

At 2pm, Donna Peach, Lecturer in Social Work, will deliver the talk 'The lived experience of prospective adoptive parents.'  Who are the people who have thought about becoming adoptive parents but haven't? This pop up talk provides insight into the lives of those who have contemplated adopting a child and some of the wretchedness and hope they have experienced. 

While you're there, don't forget to peruse the large collection of colourful and informative science books currently available to view.
