Bio-Lit Talks: Crossing Science with Humanities

Bio-Lit Talks is an independent project led by postgraduate research students at the University of Glasgow. It sits at the cross section of Biology and Literature, two disciplines that undeniably feed into one another. Against the common backdrop of infectious diseases, we will discuss their interactions and intersections, exploring the nature of disease through the eyes of scientists, writers, and readers.

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, from Victorian texts, to Latin American literature - witness easily digestible discussions on the plague, cholera, sexually transmitted infections, and novel pathogens.

Featuring authors, researchers, and academics, this free event-series is open to Literature lovers, Science enthusiasts and everyone in between.
