Born to be Wild: Life in the Infection Zone.

Life in the wild means being constantly being bombarded by infectious organisms both pathogenic and others that could be termed friends that form the microbial communities with which all organisms coexist. Animals cope with microbial challenge that results in a spectrum of outcomes that vary from tolerance to death. This is largely dependent on the type and strength of the immune response generated. This seminar will explore factors that affect immune variability in wild Rodent populations. Full details

What do we need to know to effectively predict adaptive evolution? Lessons from a model example of repeatable evolution

I am a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow at the University of Bath within the Milner Centre for Evolution. My lab broadly focuses on using experimental evolution to understand fundamental questions concerning ecological and evolutionary processes. Specifically, we use microbial experimental evolution in combination with molecular and bioinformatic techniques to determine the evolutionary drivers of gene regulatory networks (GRNs). Full details

The evolutionary ecology of maternal investment

I am interested in understanding the causes and consequences of phenotypic variation in early life history and developmental traits. For my PhD research at Monash University, Australia, I measured metabolic scaling with size and temperature during development in marine invertebrates and fish to examine processes underlying patterns central to life-history theory. I used a combination of field work, measures of physiological rates, and meta-analyses to propose potentially general mechanisms for variation in maternal investment strategies. In my current work as a postdoctoral fellow at Lund University, Sweden, I am interested in understanding the contribution of maternal effects as mechanisms for rapid counter-gradient adaptation in wall lizards.

EXCEPT seminar: Sacred Sex, Sacred Text: Queering Religious Sexual Scripts in Transforming African Society

EXCEPT (Exeter Centre for Ethics and Practical Theology) is delighted to host Prof Sarojini Nadar of the University of the Western Cape. Research on sexuality in Africa shows the incontrovertible role of the sacred text of Christianity (the Bible) in condemning forms of sexual expression and identity when they do not conform to the hetero-norm. The Bible thus defines and prescribes what “sacred sex” is. Moreover, scholars explain that the growing presence of fundamentalist religion in Africa, coupled with the myth that “homosexuality is un-African”, serves to entrench homo/transphobic beliefs, even within transforming societies like South Africa. At the same time, a growing body of literature, largely by scholars who draw on masculinity studies and queer theory, responds to the upsurge of homophobia around the globe and in Africa. Elaborating on the “sexual scripting” approach, this paper examines how heteronormative sexuality produces interpretations of Judges 19 that encourage violen Full details
