Posted November 20, 2019 09:00:16The British school of dental medicine, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), has announced it will hold lectures on alternative universes, in 2019, as part of its centenary celebrations.
The event is to be held at the Queen Elizabeth University College of Dental Medicine, the university said.
It follows a similar event at University College London in 2017.
“In 2019 we will hold a lecture on alternate universes, which is an academic event, to mark the centenary of the Queen Mary,” QMUL said.
The events, which will be led by the Royal College of General Dentistry (RCGD), will take place from November 15 to 16, 2019, and will include a special panel discussion with a panel of academics.
“This is an event that is aimed at promoting the idea of the possibilities of the future,” a QMul spokesperson said.
“As a university we are excited about the opportunity to hold these events, and we hope that they will inspire other institutions to do the same.”
“It will be an opportunity to showcase our teaching and research and explore the ways in which our discipline works and what it can do for the future of dentistry.”
The events will be streamed live on the university’s YouTube channel, and the event will be open to all, according to QMU.
“In addition to the regular lectures, the Royal Academy of General Practitioners (RAGP) is delighted to have joined us in organising the event,” said RAGP chairman and QMUD president, Dr Peter Jones.
“We hope to have a number of our graduates and students attend as well as many others who will be invited to share their ideas and experiences on alternative worlds.”
The Royal College will be holding a lecture series in September on alternative realities and alternate realities.
The Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth Universities said the Royal Institution is one of the world’s leading medical schools and is known for providing high-quality education in the humanities and sciences.
“Our goal is to provide a rich and stimulating lecture series for the students and faculty, and to encourage them to think about how they might use these topics in the future to contribute to the public good,” QMBU said.
