Watch fascinating lectures exploring the history of the Olympics: cultural, political and ideological
Our location – just two miles from the main site of the Olympic and Paralympic Games – has placed the Games squarely in Queen Mary’s consciousness. We have drawn on our academic expertise to query and explore how this world-class event is shaping life in Britain. A fascinating series of public lectures on the Olympics has been running since 2009.
The ORiEL project led by Professor Steven Cummins is investigating the impact of regeneration in the Olympic host boroughs, while Professor Kam Bhui is looking into how physical activity affects our mood and mental health.
Queen Mary is also actively involved in the Games – volunteering as gamesmakers and working in the Olympic Polyclinic – a state-of-the-art healthcare facility that will be open to the public after the Games finish. Professor Nicola Maffulli, lead for the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine, has worked with repairing Achilles tendon injury injury in elite athletes, while Professor Pankaj Vadgama has developed ‘smart sensors’ to learn more about how athletes bodies work.
