Description

Celebrating Oliver Sacks

Over the past year, The Queen's College has been organising a series of events in celebration of former fellow Oliver Sacks, a renowned writer and neurologist.

This last event will include the participation of inspiring speakers such as Professor Jonathan Cole, writer of "Pride and a Daily Marathon" and Dr Lizzie Burns, from the "Anti-boredom Campaign". During this event there will also be a dialogue between Liz Jensen, short-listed for the Guardian Fiction Award, and Professor Morten Kringelbach, prominent neuroscientist and writer at the University of Oxford. Furthermore, Dr Roman Krznaric and Clare Patey, founder and director of The Empathy Museum respectively, will talk about empathy and how to bring you closer to someone else's experience.

A few students from The Queen's College have been selected to share their perspectives about Oliver Sacks' fascinating life and work, and how these have influenced their own work, studies and views. We have also prepared several art exhibitions thanks to the participation of Clare Patey, Director of the Empathy Museum in London, and well-renowned artist Annie Cattrell. The talks and events will be followed by a drinks reception.
