September 23 - The first Critical Sexology Up North Event
Critical Sexology is a successful seminar series which has been running in London for nearly a decade. It is an interdisciplinary seminar series for psychologists, psychoanalysts, medical doctors, literary and cultural studies scholars, philosophers, artists, lawyers and historians with a critical interest in the construction and management of gender and sexuality in the medical, human sciences, discursive and cultural spheres.
Established in 2002 by Iain Morland and Lih-Mei Liao, Critical Sexology has since held three seminars per year, with meetings taking place in London. The seminar is currently co-organised by Lisa Downing (University of Exeter), Meg Barker (Open University), and Robert Gillett (Queen Mary, University of London).
From 2011, one seminar out of the three we organise per year will be held at a university in a northern location.
This first will take at place at Manchester Metropolitan University:

The North West Branch of the Institute of Mathematics hosts
"Ten Top Tips for Sports Betting" - Professor Ray Hill, University of Salford
We identify some betting situations where the odds are in your favour.
These relate to horse-racing, soccer, rugby league, cricket and Lotto. In which horse-races can you be certain to win, whatever the outcome? Why should you bet on certain soccer matches to be drawn, yet never bet on a 0-0 score-line?
A £1 Lotto ticket is worth, on average, around 45p. A judicious selection of numbers can certainly raise the value of your ticket, but can you increase its value to above the £1 you have paid?
6-7pm Wednesday, 21st September 2011 (refreshments at 5.45pm)
ROOM E32, John Dalton Building, Oxford Road
Manchester Metropolitan University
Meetings are free of charge and non-members are welcome
