The university has an on-going series of open lectures which can provide great material for journalists - both in terms of quotes and background detail for stories and by supplying new ideas for academic work.
Highlights this month include:
Professor Till Roenneberg
October 2, 6pm, Grimond (Canterbury). The impact of sleep deprivation caused by changes in the modern lifestyle. A relevant topic for any students who stay glued to their iPads long after lights-out - and an interesting broader health story waiting to be told.
