‘Just count the apricot trees, everything else is gup shup.’ This advice was given to Prof Laura Camfield from UEA's School of International Development at the start of her research career. It shows how development throws up the really big questions - what counts as knowledge? Whose voices should we listen to? And most importantly, what really matters to people in countries characterised as ‘developing’? In her inaugural lecture, Prof Camfield looks at how research is done to address these questions, and the challenges involved in combining approaches that focus on indicators and experiences.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy these open public lectures and there is a chance to meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.

These lectures are free and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night!
