Super-Glue is invisible to the naked eye, has exceptional strength and displays incredibly fast ‘reactions’ - superpowers that allow it to stick instantaneously to anything (well, almost anything) in a smooth and seamless fashion. But just like plastic, another wonder material of the late 1950s, it’s proving to be the equivalence of kryptonite for our global eco-system. Join Professor James Broughton in the Adventures of Super-Glue.

Hadi Damien was arrested in the middle of Beirut Pride 2018 and placed in custody following the homophobic fabrication of a fake, sensational TV programme that was attributed to Beirut Pride. He was released after the suspension of the scheduled activities, and the initiation of criminal proceedings against him, relating to the organisation of events that "incite debauchery". He will share candidly his reflections on LGBTIQ+ matters and the meaning of Prides, as well as discussing ways to advance so-called LGBTIQ+ rights in Lebanon - a global conversation springing from his personal contribution and experience.

The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Annual Research Lecture. It’s not just faces and fingerprints that are unique. So are hands - and this is making it possible to catch child abusers on camera. Variations in the anatomical minutiae of the human hand mean each person’s hands are different, as anatomists have long realised. The importance of this to forensic human identification is now being demonstrated by Professor Black’s ground-breaking research. In this lecture, she will look at how research in the field of identification from the hand has assisted in the investigation and prosecution of crimes relating to child sexual abuse. The identification of a perpetrator in ‘first generation’ images is paramount if the vulnerable of society are to be protected and those guilty of the crime brought to justice.
