Bio-Lit Talks: Death and Dying

Bio-Lit Talks is an interdisciplinary collaboration exploring topical themes from the perspectives of the Arts, Sciences and Humanities. In this series, we are discussing Death and Dying and their inextricable connection to our everyday cognition, imagination, behaviour, and societal structures.

Organised as a three-event series and focusing on a new topic each month, join us as we explore the multi-layered substrates of Death and its intricate ramifications.

The events are taking place at the Advanced Research Centre (ARC) on the University of Glasgow main campus. Online attendance via Zoom is also possible.
Attendance is free.
