13/06/2012: Dogberry, Dixon and the Gene Genie: humour and pathos in policing and its cultural representations
  An Inaugural Lecture by Professor Frank Leishman, Dean of School of Human Sciences.
This lecture examines, in their settings, three well-known fictional policing characters - Shakespeare’s comic constable Dogberry, the archetypal British bobby Dixon of Dock Green, and the no-nonsense, politically incorrect DCI Gene Hunt from BBC’s Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes. As significant cultural reference points for particular styles of policing, these representations are used as a means of exploring issues of humour and pathos in the real world of police work and its occupational culture.

12/06/2012: Research shows confusion over big society
More than two years after the coalition government came to power, members of the voluntary and community sector (VCS) are confused about the real meaning and vision behind the Big Society, according to research carried out by Newman University College in conjunction with Birmingham Voluntary Service Council. The findings, which are published today, also reveal that Government narratives on the policy are often not taken seriously within the sector and the concept is seen as vague and inaccessible or little more than a rebranding exercise by many. The research, which was carried out by Newman University College’s Children, Young People and Family Research Centre, included interviews with a variety of VCS organisations, a literature review and analysis of shifts in Government policy towards the sector from 1960 to the present day.
