In this talk, Dr Matt Lodder will examine the history of a tenacious cliché — the idea that tattooing ‘now’ is a newly-emerged fashion trend suddenly finding favour amongst wider demographics than in the past, when it was confined to sailors, bikers, criminals and ne’r-do-wells. In a heavily-illustrated talk, tracing relentless examples of this claim in the British and American press from the present day backwards into the late 19th century, the talk will present a wider picture of this oft-maligned practice, and at the same time ask questions about cultural amnesia, the role of journalism in shaping our collective sense of history, and the problematic relationships between academic scholarship and popular understanding.

This one day symposium, which will be held at the Materials Innovation Factory (Liverpool), hopes to provide researchers with information and ideas about how automation can be applied to different areas of research including organic synthesis, supramolecular assemblies, organic materials, and polymer synthesis, and will elucidate options for seeking access to equipment to apply it to their own research ideas.

There will be a range of talks presenting case-studies of the use of an enabling technology in their research, such as high-throughput synthesis platforms, flow reactors, or low-cost automation, to promote their use and demonstrate the benefits of embracing automation in research. There will also be a session on what capabilities are available in the UK with the routes on how to access them. Confirmed speakers include Lee Cronin (Glasgow), Andy Cooper (Liverpool), Varinder Aggarwal (Bristol), Matt O’Brien (Keele), Anna Slater (Liverpool), Nick Warren (Leeds) and Ben Deadman (ROAR).
