The Science of Stories with Will Self
Fri 25 November 2016, 18:30 – 20:00 GMT
Join Will Self for a fascinating event which will explore how we experience and understand stories, specifically the differences and/or similarities in how we consume text based and screen based narrative in an increasingly digitised world. This is the culminating event of a project that Strathclyde and Oxford Universities have been working on with Scottish Book Trust. As well as Will Self sharing his take on the subject, he will be joined by Dr Elspeth Jajdelska from Strathclyde University, and Christopher Butler, Associate Professor at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience, University of Oxford, who will discuss some of their findings from the year-long Science of Stories project.
