What is Café Scientifique?

Café Scientifique is a friendly and collaborative exploration of the latest breakthroughs in science—all from the comfort of our café! The event takes place once a month, on a Thursday evening (see below for a full list of dates).

You’ll hear about, discuss and debate some of the most recent advances and discoveries in science and healthcare, and their importance to society.

Each event has a theme—they’ve included everything from the latest in physics to the science of music, from nanotechnology to biology.

Café Scientifique is a great way to meet new people and exercise your mind. Come along and discuss the discoveries you’ve seen in the headlines, or learn something completely new.

Wet Futures: understanding wetland heritage in contested environments

Dr Ben Jennings

Wetland environments are dynamic, with climatic, demographic, economic and political influences. These environments are neither constant nor stable, and have been utilised by human populations for millennia, resulting in an incredible richness and diversity of heritage.

Ben works to identify the impacts of those changes on the heritage contained within wetland environments. Change can also lead to conflict between populations working in, managing, and accessing these environments. Reconciling such conflict and identifying impacts of change is crucial to a creating a future for wetlands which encompasses the broad range of activities and perceptions of heritage and significance that they encourage.

Dr Ben Jennings is a lecturer in archaeology at the University of Bradford. He completed his PhD at the University of Basel, studying lake-dwellings of the Alpine region. His research interests focus on wetland settlement and exploitation in prehistory, and the modelling of exchange and interaction systems.
