Nostalgia podcast with Jeremy Scott
12 February 2019
In the latest episode of the Nostalgia podcast series, Dr Chris Deacy, Reader in Theology and Religious Studies in the Department of Religious Studies, speaks to Dr Jeremy Scott, Senior Lecturer in the Department of English Language & Linguistics.
In this episode, Jeremy discusses growing up in the ‘stab’ capital of the Metropolitan area; why pubs are an important part of the British landscape (and why their demise might be seen as an instance of secularisation); spending so much of his childhood outdoors; growing up in a musical house; the name of the first record that he bought; his passion for writing stories; putting on various ‘masks’ at university; being at odds with current literary practice; and why he is an ‘aspiring, recovering nostalgist’.
Coming up in just over two weeks will be Professor Darren Griffin, Professor of Genetics in the School of Biosciences, who is doing groundbreaking work on IVF, human sperm, how genes organise into chromosomes, and the genome structure of dinosaurs.
