(our own) Jenny Gristock (SPRU, University of Sussex)

In January 2007, journalists in the US and UK media began to debate the research of Professor Charles Roselli, from the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Oregon Health and Science University. The scientist claims he is performing basic research, merely exploring what makes 8 per cent of sheep gay. Critics say that he is attempting to discover methods that could be used to control the sexuality of sheep, and possibly humans. So who is behaving badly: the journalists writing the headlines, or the researchers in the laboratory? And what does this tale of gay sheep tell us about the role of journalism in science?

Isn't it called 'Home' now?


So it is: good spot. I'll update the events...


This event has been postponed -- Jenny is ill.


Sorry to hear that - shame as this is the one Tuesday that I don't have a gig


This event is back on: new date, time and location.

This "is a special 'Goodbye Jenny' event to be held at CIRCUS CIRCUS (at Preston Circus, see http://www.circus-circus.co.uk/) from 7pm-9pm on SATURDAY 15th MARCH. Circus Circus serves Thai food and we're finishing early so everyone can move on to their own special Saturday night soirees. The first 10 people to arrive get a free drink on the house."
