On Thursday 16 March 2017, Dr Emilie Taylor-Brown gave a talk with Dr Jamie Lorimer (School of Geography and the Environment) and Dr Nicola Fawcett (Medical Sciences Division) on the subject of Germs Revisited. The talk was part of a programme of events to celebrate the European Research Council’s 10th anniversary week in March.
The talk discussed bad germs, friendly bacteria and whether we need to rethink our relationships with the microscopic world! The talk drew on past and present ideas from medicine, fiction and art to discuss new ways of thinking about human-microbe relationships along with developing trends in microbiome studies.
The event was organised through The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities, and the video is now available on the TORCH website. To view the video, please click here.
