The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in collaboration with The Linnean Society will host the 2018 Irene Manton lecture at The John Rylands Library.
The lecture celebrates and commemorates the significant contribution made by women to the Natural Sciences and this year our keynote speaker will be Dr Sandra Knapp, President of the Linnean Society of London and Head of the Algae, Fungi and Plants Division at the Natural History Museum, London. Sandy will highlight the natural history of women in the field, and will explain how fieldwork is critical to understanding and therefore saving the planet we live on with her talk entitled ‘Fieldwork in fancy dress? – a natural history of women in the field’.
Registration will take place from 4.30pm and there will be a drinks reception on arrival.
Further information will be sent to attendees a week before the event.
