26 September, 2017 - 2017 CRAE Annual Lecture and Farewell to Professor Liz Pellicano

Time: 18:30:00 - 19:30:00

Can non-autistic scientists ever really understand what autistic people and their families need from their research? That’s a question that activists and community groups have been asking with increasing vigour over recent years. In what will be the Centre for Autism Research & Education (CRAE) 8th Annual Lecture, world-renowned researcher and departing CRAE Director, Professor Liz Pellicano, will be speaking on this critical topic in her talk entitled, Knowing Autism. As part of this talk, Liz looks back at her years at the Centre to investigate, in depth, what the autistic community rightly demands of autism research and the major changes that will need to be made to deliver on their expectations. We hope you will join us for this special, free-to-attend event and in wishing Liz, and her family, all the best in their new Australian adventure. We will also be serving light refreshments following the lecture.

1 November, 2017 - Inequalities: Evidence from longitudinal studies

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:00:00

Inequalities continue to plague all areas of society, from education and income, to health and life expectancy. Successive governments and decades of policy initiatives have targeted the unequal life chances across communities, countries and generations. But why do these disparities persist? And who faces the greatest risks? The UK’s longitudinal studies are leading sources of evidence on life course and intergenerational inequality. CLOSER’s 2017 conference seeks to bring together researchers from across disciplines to showcase longitudinal research’s contribution to our understanding of inequalities. The conference is an opportunity to share ideas and innovations with longitudinal researchers from across disciplines and sectors, both from the UK and abroad. It will also showcase the latest resources for research, including CLOSER Discovery – a search engine that allows researchers to explore the content of eight leading UK longitudinal studies in unprecedented detail.
