With plenty of time for questions and discussion, three academics preview their Fringe shows, ably assisted by compere and self-styled ‘stupidest person in the room', Susan Morrison.

Spoiler alert: This is NOT a lecture. Attendees are liable to learn something new and interesting!

Tonight!

Rebekka Puderbaugh – Don't believe your ears!

Did Grover drop an F-bomb on Sesame Street? Do the names Yanny and Laurel make you want to fight? You know what your ears tell you – you heard it yourself! But why do so many people disagree? How can people can hear radically different things in the same sound? Who's right? Can even a professional linguist say for sure? Pit your ears against your friends' and neighbours' and let's settle this once and for all. Using acoustic trickery Rebekka Puderbaugh (The University of Edinburgh) will make you doubt reality and distrust everything (you think) you hear.

Ron O'Donnell – Art is Shit!

What is art and should we fund it? Have you ever thought: “What the f**k is that? People pay money for that? A two-year old could do it!”. We're talking art with Ron O'Donnell (Edinburgh Napier University).

Who decides what is valuable, or creative? Do you need to be educated to understand it? Would you despair if a great artwork was destroyed? Would you give a shit if all contemporary art disappeared tomorrow? If art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observation, why is so much of it baffling and aloof?

Rayya Ghul – Are you a problem addict?

Problems are like whirlpools – they suck you in. How often have you found yourself talking over and over about the same ‘difficult' people and other irritations? What if you don't actually need to understand a problem to come up with a great solution? This is the radical idea at the heart of Solution Focus.

Rayya Ghul (The University of Edinburgh), internationally-renowned solution-focused practitioner, will bust myths about the value of problem-solving. You'll have a chance to learn the skills behind conversations that can create real and lasting change. Are you ready to give up stressing?

Duration: 120minutes | Show ends: 10.30pm approx. | Age Guidance: 18+ | Bar: From when doors open and after the show | Food Service: Bar snacks available

Tonight!

Paola Ruffo – Can Google really translate?

What does it mean to be a human in the era of Google Translate? Is it really taking over human translation? What if it isn't just words after all? Can machines replicate human feelings and language nuances? Paola Ruffo (Heriot-Watt University) explores how the boundaries between humans, words and machines are being redrawn. Join her at the edges of the magic world of translation to discover what happens when humans and machines meet new languages. Can you tell the difference between a text from a human and one written by a machine?

Amy Andrada - Are Women Assholes?

Women are constantly measuring one another by ideals of thinness, beauty, ‘best mommy practices', and keeping a happy home with a happy partner. Why? Are their values warped? Are they not happy with themselves, or are they afraid of being alone? Why is single status so threatening? Does competitiveness drive their insecurities or do women's insecurities drive their competitiveness? Amy Andrada (The University of Edinburgh) dares to ask. In her quest, she discovers that women are much more than they appear and accept far less than they deserve.

Jenny Paterson – Neglecting Midwives Gives Mothers PTSD

The NHS are getting it wrong! Funny? No! Laughable? Maybe! Jenny Patterson (Edinburgh Napier University) hits out at the NHS for neglecting midwives and heartlessly letting women suffer – almost like trauma-stressed war veterans. Neglected midwives can end up lashing out or burning out, leaving some women feeling shocked and abandoned. Sadly, both midwives and women can end up with PTSD. Do midwives need to toughen up? Do women? Jenny doesn't pull her punches and says: “Never mind the women, what about the midwives?”.
