Cafe Scientifique Live: A LECTURER’S APOLOGY The Truth, the Whole Truth and ANYTHING but the Truth”

Tuesday 12th December 2023 3:00PM – 4:30PM
Location/Venue: Cellar Bar Kennaway House EX10 8NG

Colin White will give a more light hearted talk entitled A LECTURER’S APOLOGY The Truth, the Whole Truth and ANYTHING but the Truth


The science environment, both inside and outside academia, is a methodical world, governed by such matters as; the formality of precision, problem-solving skills, the expertise in crafting intricate solutions, carefully crafted construction and application of algorithms, and above all, gravitas.




By relating selected tales (of admittedly variable accuracy) from his career, Colin will show there is, among this tightly defined framework, room for a little whimsy, maybe light-heartedness, possibly even some harmless elements of mischievousness and impishness.


Colin contends that a little humorous disruption can do wonders for the creative juices by fostering camaraderie and collegiate collaboration. And if it turns out he’s wrong. Well, it wasn’t his fault.
