Dragon Hall Debates: Guts

From Monday 21st October 2019 19:00 to 21:00

‘Can you stomach it?’ ‘Do you have the guts?’ Our digestive organs are inserted into colloquial phrases to explain a variety of cultural symptoms – but what is really churning in our bellies, and how does it affect us? In this debate, journalist and broadcaster Tim Hayward will help us digest our social history, Dr Lindsay Hall from the Quadram Institute will expand on the interactions between our tummies and microbiota, and UEA’s Prof Tiffany Atkinson will share her views on the (sometimes embarrassing) ways that our anatomy has been represented culturally and historically. This event is part of Norwich Science Festival. FREE but booking advised
