Bio-Lit Talks 2022: Perspectives on the Gut

Advanced Research Centre, University of Glasgow
11 Chapel Lane, Glasgow G11 6EW

Bio-Lit Talks is an interdisciplinary collaboration exploring biological research from the perspectives of the Arts, Sciences and Humanities. In this series, we are discussing the gut and how it impacts our lives. We’ll examine our inner ecosystem and its significance to our behaviour, nutrition, food culture, and society. Bringing together local and international scientists, artists, and literary academics – join us as we explore ourselves at our core! 

The events are taking place at the Advanced Research Centre (ARC) on the University of Glasgow main campus.

Online attendance via Zoom is also possible.   

Attendance is free; refreshments and a networking session are included.
