The Graduate School presents the annual Fairbrother Lecture, names after Jack Fairbrother, who in 1929 became the first student to be awarded a PhD from the University. The Fairbrother Lecture is an annual event at which a current, or recent, Reading doctoral researcher presents their work to a wider audience. Previous lecture topics have included the use of cannabis to treat epilepsy, British governments' counter-radicalisation policies, and food poisoning and fresh produce. The event also features a showcase of research undertaken by current Reading PhD students.
At the time of going to print this year's speaker has yet to be announced.
