Engineering Group of the Geological Society - Peter Brabham Lecture
For the first time the University of Leeds hosted a joint Engineering Group and Yorkshire Regional Group of the Geological Society meeting. Dr. Peter Brabham from the University of Cardiff detailed the extent, geology and economics of the South Wales Coalfields, which at their height comprised over 1,800 operating mines. The lecture then progress on to a pilot scheme where Dr Brabham had been involved in extracting sustainable heat energy from the now flooded mine workings to provide district heating. A detailed case study was presented for the town of Caerau, where water from a depth of 230m and a temperature of 20.6C was recovered; confirming the viability of the site for a heat pump. As a result of his research £6.5m additional funding has been provided to progress the scheme. The lecture highlighted how the legacy of coal mining can be exploited to provide a sustainable energy source, which could be applicable to other areas of the UK with a mining past, such as the north of England. The lecture concluded with a question and answer session.

Narrating Policy - Challenging Narratives (Panel) (1/16/2017)
Narrating Policy - Challenging Narratives (Panel) Due to unfortunate circumstances, the presenters for the other two papers had to withdraw at short notice. * Gendered Narratives: Exploring the Cooccurrence of Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Gender Dysphoria* - Emily Maddox (University of Leeds) There is an overrepresentation of people accessing gender clinics who have a pre-existing diagnosis of autism or autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD is categorised as a neurological condition, with a narrative surrounding it which is overwhelming masculine. It is attached to an essential maleness and becomes an extreme and pathological version of the male brain. Thus, ASD becomes intimately connected to the gendered self of those diagnosed. Yet this essentialist position demands our considered when we consider, as Dan Goodley does, when autism is categorised as both a neurological condition and a learning disability this clearly positions it with the socio-political world. Likewise the over representation of autism in gender clinics is not being sufficiently examined in light of how autism acting as a gendered disciplinary technique interacts with and restricts gendered expression. There is little consideration of how the pathologised maleness of autism is interpreted by the person with autism who is struggling to construct a coherent gendered narrative of the self. This omission is echoed by the lack of policy determining ways to work with people who access gender clinics with both ASD and gender dysphoria. The dominant discourse of autism seems to restrict any serious interrogation of how the discursive formations of gender and autism interact with each other and the lack of policy reflects this which ultimately prevents a holistic care plan being constructed for those affected. 'Narrating Policy: Exploring Narrative in Policy and Policy Analysis' was a one-day symposium held at the University of Leeds, organised by James Beresford and Ashley R. Bullard, doctoral researchers in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The day was dedicated to the various and variegated ways narrative and narrative analysis informs policy and policy analysis. The symposium was sponsored by the Leeds Social Science Institution and the Sociology and Social Policy’s Policy Research Cluster.

Narrating Policy - Narrative Methods, Methodology, Epistemology, and Modalities (Panel) (1/16/2017)
Narrating Policy - Narrative Methods, Methodology, Epistemology, and Modalities (Panel) *Using Narrative Insights to Analyse the Politics of Social Policy Research* - Dr Harriet Clarke and Raquel Silva (University of Birmingham) ‘Narrative’ may be emergent in some areas of social policy analysis, yet it is an explicit mode of research presentation across academic disciplines and methodological approaches in the UK HEI environment. In the context of ‘impact narrative’ (as one powerful given mode for research narrative producers) we consider the potential of insights from narrative analysis to provide the social policy community tools to discuss, analyse and address what shapes our individual and institutional ways of presenting ourselves and our academic endeavours. Specific issues raised include (i) who tells research stories – who to, for what purpose and (ii) what narrative resources are used and produced (and perhaps not used / not produced) in the process. We argue that th potential contribution of a narrative lens is rooted in the politics of social research and that a narrative perspective can strongly enhance analysis of the research-policy field. *Xenophobia to Understanding: Influencing the Narrative of Unaccompanied Refugee Children through Systemic Communication* - Pascal Tshibanda (University of Bedfordshire) A multilevel communications project, with a relational (i.e. systemic) orientation in a Swedish borough council has proven to be an efficient tool to combat othering, prejudices and racism towards unaccompanied refugee children, or “bearded children” as they were called in the public debate. Sweden was the OECD's highest per capita recipient of asylum seekers until 2015 and in this particular rural small town, people from 116 different countries, speaking 156 different languages, reside. Global migration hence, present complex opportunities and challenges for local councils. This irreversible human global warming leave deep traces on everyday life for those who move, and those who receive them. The ethical posture that underpinned this communications project was to talk with rather than about unaccompanied refugee children. Public leadership and communication are hence intrinsic and interwoven elements in the creation of sustainable local communities of co-existence. The outcome was “I’m no longer afraid”, two storytelling videos, a photo exhibition and a photo book to combat narratives of ”failed multiculturalism” and the stigmatisation of vulnerable children on the move. 'Narrating Policy: Exploring Narrative in Policy and Policy Analysis' was a one-day symposium held at the University of Leeds, organised by James Beresford and Ashley R. Bullard, doctoral researchers in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The day was dedicated to the various and variegated ways narrative and narrative analysis informs policy and policy analysis.

Narrating Policy - Second Independent Paper - Children/Childhood: Historical Educational Perspectives (1/16/2017)
Narrating Policy - Second Independent Paper *Excavating Concepts of Children and Childhood in Ireland (1900 – 1940) from an Historical Educational Policy Perspective* - Dr Thomas Walsh (Maynooth University) Concepts of children and childhood are time specific and linked to wider contextual and societal issues (James and Prout, 1997; Jenks, 1998). Using narrative policy to provide a framework for historical documentary analysis (Bowen, 2009; Roe, 1994), this presentation will trace the changing conceptualisation of childhood in Ireland from an educational perspective in the opening decades of the twentieth century. The main policy artefact of exploration will be the successive primary school curricula from the era, specifically the Revised Programme of Instruction (1900) and the curricula developed in Ireland following the achievement of political independence in the 1920s. The presentation will focus in particular on the dramatic changes catalysed by the advent of political independence and interrogate through policy analysis the respective roles of the State (pre- and postindependence) and the churches in constructing and reconstructing this conceptualisation of childhood. The presentation will conclude with a review of the implications for children and society of this changing construction of childhood pre- and post-independence. 'Narrating Policy: Exploring Narrative in Policy and Policy Analysis' was a one-day symposium held at the University of Leeds, organised by James Beresford and Ashley R. Bullard, doctoral researchers in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The day was dedicated to the various and variegated ways narrative and narrative analysis informs policy and policy analysis.
