The Little Fireface Project is part of Oxford Brookes University's Slow Loris Fund. Led by Professor Anna Nekaris, the team has been working towards slow loris conservation, including in West Java Indonesia where they study the Critically Endangered Javan slow loris. In this podcast, they describe an innovative way to approach conservation, working with the local community to improve farming practices for coffee, whilst at the same time banning hunting and littering - this process has led to the village's certification as Wildlife Friendly. Postdoctoral researcher Marco and PhD student Sophie tell you more!
This podcast series from the Public Engagement Network (PEN) at Oxford Brookes University is a platform for academics, across all faculties, to informally share, discuss and contemplate their research with the wider community

In this episode Niall Munro talks with Christopher Kempf about his new collection of poetry, What Though The Field Be Lost, published by Louisiana State University Press in 2021.
Chris’s first poetry collection, Late in the Empire of Men, won the 2015 Levis Prize from Four Way Books and was reviewed widely, including in The New York Times. His scholarly book, Craft Class: The Workshop in American Culture, is forthcoming from Johns Hopkins University Press. You can find out more about Chris on his website: christopherkempf.com
What Though The Field Be Lost may be grounded in the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, but it doesn't just offer just a fascinating engagement with the soil and statues there. It is also a profound exploration of conflict and memory more broadly in the United States. Indeed, one of the most striking things about the book is the way in which it is so attentive to the complexities of history.
Through the discussion of two poems from the book, ‘Remembrance Day’ and ‘Afte…

Dr Emma Davies chats with Kezia Stewart, recent MSc Behaviour Change graduate, and Behavioural Insights and Evaluation Officer for Cycling UK. Kezia told me about some of the barriers to increased rates of cycling, as well as her views about working in behavioural science. Kezia also tells us about some of the projects she had the opportunity to work on during her MSc in Behaviour Change at UCL.
In episode 5, we explore trial design and measurement with an example of an intervention to reduce alcohol consumption by reducing the strength of alcohol. Dr Emma Davies interviews Dr Parvati Perman-Howe about her PhD study, which involved a double-blind randomised controlled cross-over pilot trial. Dr Perman-Howe discusses the purpose of a pilot trial, the design of the study, and some of the things she learnt from the process, as well as sharing some tips and advice.
Dr Emma Davies talks to Dr Nikki Newhouse about digital tools for behaviour change in episode four of the series. Dr Newhouse tells us all about the good, and the not so good, things that we need to know if we are considering using apps or websites or other digital methods to deliver our interventions. While there isn't always an 'app for that', there might be, but we need to think carefully about engagement and evaluation.
