How Matter Matters - Part of the Fireplace Series

March 13th 2020 at 9:45
Learn Something New
This chat brings together two scholars who spend much of their lives thinking about matter – what it is and what it does. Bronwyn Parry, Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at Kings College London (and herself a strange amalgam of anthropologist, sociologist and human geographer) here engages in conversation with Associate Dean Nick Mosey of Queen’s University to discuss how matter comes to matter in chemistry, forensics and wider social and public life. In thinking through these questions they consider how we understand presence and absence, wear and tear, and the politics of track and trace. These scholars invite you to join them in unpacking the interplay between mechanical forces, chemical reactions and affective materialities. Learn more here.
