Bio-Lit Talks: ‘Society, Sex and Science: Understanding syphilis and its portrayal in the Victorian Era’, University of Glasgow via Zoom, 17 November 2021, at 19.00-20.00

Bio-Lit Talks 17.11.21

Bio-Lit Talks is an online, four-event series, exploring the interactions and intersections between Biology and Literature.

Structured as a four-event series and focusing on a new topic each week, join us as we delve, digress, and dissect into words of authors and mechanisms of pathogens: from Scottish texts of the 16th century to contemporary prose, Victorian texts, and Latin American literature – witness easily digestible discussions on the plague, cholera, sexually transmitted infections, and novel pathogens.

Organised by postgraduate students at the University of Glasgow and featuring authors, researchers, and academics, this free event-series is open to Literature lovers, Science enthusiasts and everyone in between!

A special thank you to those who helped Bio-Lit Talks come to life: Michael Deerwater, Lorna MacBean, Emily Allan, Rachel Lewis, Clio Dritsa and Patricia Rimbi.
