Joining Steve Cross on the Star of Kings stage for the first of our October gigs:
Lydia Nicholas is an anthropologist working at the meeting points of health, data, culture and biology. Things get weird down there. She really isn’t sure who she is any more. Lydia will be talking squishy bodies, and how they screw with your politics
Dave Christensen is a stem cell biologist studying blindness. He also likes pretending he’s a detective to make lab work less dull
Fran Day explains the vital importance of units – how we measure things, from the ancient Greeks to modern theoretical physics
Shalaka Kurup is a postgraduate student by day – wine enthusiast by night. Shalaka will be here for nine whole questionably-entertaining minutes to talk to you about the seductive world of academic research
Plus more from Davina Bentley, Tayibbah Ali and Stanley Strawbridge.
