What is human? What is not? What is animal, and what is monstrous? This evening event with talks and discussion on literature and culture from the classics to Kafka shows that ideas about what makes humans, monsters or beasts change, vividly, through history. Just as in the stories we tell, bodies and shapes change and change again, shifting the limits of our humanity and speaking to our deepest fears and hopes.
This event is part of the University of London's hub programme, 'Ministry of hope and fear', for the Being Human festival.
As our Festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets comes to our events. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
