SMCS Annual Lecture

Each year the SMCS invite a prominent academic to deliver a lecture that combines academic vigour with broad appeal. On the 24th of October 2017 the inaugural event was graced by Professor Nancy Cartwright, speaking on: ‘Policy and Evidence, why ‘what works’ does not work’. 

The lecture proved to be insightful, prescient to our time and produced much thought in an audience that ranged from first year undergraduates to senior professors. To enable all members and indeed any other interested parties to benefit from this lecture, we recorded the whole event and it is available to see here.
