Punks with Bagpipes

Tickets are now on sale for the world’s largest festival of public science talks, which will see eighteen researchers take to the stage in venues across Lincoln. University of Lincoln researchers will be speaking at three venues across the city: The Pessimist, The Cardinal’s Hat, and The Victoria. As well as two talks, each event will also include a quiz with prizes to be won, and a viewing of Creative Reactions – artworks inspired by the speakers’ research.

Pint of Science Event: Punks with Bagpipes

“I don’t give a sh*t about the gigs!” Exploring what punk means to older punk women
Dr Laura Way (Research Fellow in Family Research)
Is there a pressure amongst older punk women to grow old gracefully, or do they instead relish in growing old DISgracefully? This talk will draw upon Laura’s research with older punk women, exploring how they negotiate ‘being’ and ‘doing’ punk as they age, and consider what punk means to them.

A journey across the world of bagpipes
Dr Cassandre Balosso-Bardin (Senior Lecturer in Music)
Did you know that over 130 bagpipes existed across the world? What are they made out of? How are they really played? Who plays them? This diverse instrument is traditionally found from Northern India to Ireland and comes in all shapes and sizes.
