A glimpse of life in rural India – A Zoom lecture at 11am on Thursday 11th March 2021

March 11, 2021 @ 11:00 - 13:00

Dear Members,

 Sara McMurry will present a talk to the Trinity Retirement Association via Zoom on Thursday 11th March 2021 at 11 am entitled ‘A glimpse of life in rural India’.

 Sara McMurry was for a number of years a lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Trinity. Eighteen months after retiring she visited India for the first time, and was inspired to return as a volunteer, teaching underprivileged children. She had four placements there between 2010 and 2014. She had written one book on Quantum Mechanics and another, Mathematics as a Language, during her career in Trinity, and decided to attempt a book on her experiences in India, though this entailed a complete change of writing style! “Re-Tyred: Discovering India” was published in March 2019.  

 This presentation is based on her experiences as a volunteer teaching in Government primary schools in villages in northern India.

If you wish to join us for the lecture please register using the website ticket system below. Registrations for this event close at  11 pm  9th March 2021 – registrations are not possible after this date and time.

There is no charge for this event.

We hope you can join us on the 11th March.

All the best
