Talk time at Leeds

The University plays host to three major lectures this month. The former foreign correspondant and MP Martin Bell, now a UNICEF ambassador, is giving this year's Bodington Lecture on Something to declare: reflections on war and politics. The lecture is on 11 October 2001 at 8.30pm at Bodington Hall. Free tickets are available from Sue Testo on ext 3189.

Leeds has been chosen as the venue for one of the three UK lectures given by this year's Feldberg Foundation winner, director of the Max-Planck institute for biochemistry Professor Wolfgang Baumeister. The lecture, The 26S proteasome: a molecular machine designed for controlled proteolysis is at 1pm on Tuesday October 16 in the medical lecture theatre.

Cosmic catastrophes - from exploding stars to supermassive black holes in distant galaxies - is the topic of this year's Bolton lecture by visiting professor Trevor Weekes. Professor Weekes is an expert on cosmic rays, and has been working with scientists from the University on a multi-million dollar gamma-ray observatory in the Arizona desert. The lecture is on Tuesday October 15 2001, at 5.30pm in the Rupert Beckett Theatre.
