Through a series of experiments with active chemicals, Pimm will examine instances of the organic simulating the inorganic and organic/inorganic hybrids as a means to consider the relationship between ‘life’ and its environment.

For this event, Rachel wil discuss her work with the novelist and historian of science Daisy Hildyard. Hildyard is the author of two books, Hunters in the Snow and The Second Body. She is a Leverhulme Early Career Research fellow at Northumbria University, where she has led a research project investigating non-human life experiences.
