|25th Oct 2011||18:15||Societies||Primate Socio-ecology: Culture Among Chimpanzees||Speaker: Professor William McGrew
Chimpanzees inhabit a wide variety of habitats in sub-Saharan Africa, from rain forest to savanna. Their behaviour, whether in subsistence or sociality, varies greatly too. To understand this diversity requires careful comparative study, seeking data on differences and similarities across populations.
I have pursued these aims from Senegal to Tanzania, and published books and articles accordingly. However, this talk describes and illustrates what lies behind the science, what never appears in journals, about what the research entails. (Winstanley Lecture Theatre). TCSS.

|24th Oct 2011||20:30||Societies||Probabilistic Learning Machines and the Information Revolution||Speaker: Prof Zoubin Ghahramani (Dept. of Engineering)
Information plays a central role in 21st century science, commerce and society. We have huge data sets of measurements collected from large-scale scientific experiments, exciting commercial opportunities arising from exploiting web-scale information, and vast stores of knowledge available to society on the internet. Probabilistic approaches for modelling uncertainty and learning from data are essential to the effective use of these vast stores of information. Modern probabilistic approaches to building learning machines are grounded in the mathematics of the 18th century Reverend Thomas Bayes. I will describe the foundations of this field and our recent work on stochastic processes and nonparametric statistics, along with examples of a number of applications to big data problems such as information retrieval, recommendation, genomic data analysis, financial prediction, and robotics.
All talks will begin at 8.30pm with port and orange juice from 8.15pm. Talks are for members only; non-members may join at the door. Membership is just £2.50 for life (Winstanley Lecture Theatre). TMS.

|20th Oct 2011||17:30||Academic||Russian Theatre and Russian Actors on the British Stage: A Conversation with Declan Donnellan||5:30-7:00pm
Declan Donnellan is joint founder of Cheek by Jowl with Nick Ormerod, and joint Artistic Director of the Company. Cheek by Jowl was described by The Independent in 1990 as the company to have had the most significant influence on British Theatre in the 1980s. The company has been Artistic
Associate at the Barbican Theatre London since 2006.
Donnellan's unique relationship with Russia goes back over twenty five years. He has adapted Russian plays (The Mandate by Erdman and Masquerade by Lermontov) for the British stage. He has also directed The Winter's Tale for the Malyi Theatre of St Petersburg and Romeo and Juliet for the Bolshoi Ballet. In 1999, the Russian Theatre Foundation invited him to form a Moscow counterpart to Cheek By Jowl. This company's Russian-language productions of Twelfth Night, Boris Godunov, Three Sisters and The Tempest now represent Russia at major International festivals and have enjoyed significant critical acclaim. Donnellan's book The Actor and The Target was first published in Russian and has since appeared in over a dozen languages.
Declan will be discussing his experiences of working in Russia, and with Russian actors; he will also talk about the place of Russian drama in the London/UK theatre repertoire, and its meanings for British audiences.
This event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a wine reception (Winstanley Lecture Theatre). Poster.

|13th Oct 2011||18:15||Societies||Molecular Geomicrobiology: How Bacteria Shape the Chemistry of Their Environment||Speaker: Professor Dianne Newman
The Earth was formed ~4.6 billion years ago (Ga), and traces of ancient life can be found as far back at 3.8 Ga. What was life like in the remote past? What metabolisms were used to sustain growth? When did critical metabolisms that changed our planet evolve, such as oxygenic photosynthesis (the ability to convert water to molecular oxygen)?
This lecture will discuss how geobiologists approach these questions, illustrating the challenges faced in making meaningful inferences about the nature of life so long ago. (Old Combination Room). TCSS.

|24th Sep 2011|| ||Academic||Pagan and Christian||This two-day interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge, aims to foster collaboration between historians, archaeologists and philologists who study conversion to Christianity in the Insular world. The conference will offer participants a unique forum in which to explore conversion comparatively by focusing on different parts of Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia and Iceland in the early and central middle ages. The combination of places chosen for the discussion reflects our wish to establish a wide comparative framework, covering areas that are of significance to the study of conversion in both the pre-Viking and the Viking era.
Speakers include Dr Edel Bhreathnach (UCD), Professor Thomas Charles-Edwards (Oxford), Professor Orri Vésteinsson (Reykjavík), Professor Martin Carver (York), Professor Barbara Yorke (Winchester), Dr Tom Pickles (York), Professor Thomas Clancy (Glasgow), Dr Nora Berend (Cambridge), Dr Sarah Semple (Durham), and Dr Haki Antonsson (UCL).
