Behavioural Humanities aims to celebrate the many interesting connections between behavioural science and the arts and humanities.
Facilitated by our academic lead Professor Thomas Hills, this speaker series focuses on contributions from literature, the visual arts, and music and investigates how the behavioural science and the humanities inform one another. Speakers will touch on work from Cezanne, musical artists over the decades, and George Elliot's Middlemarch.
Tuesday 2nd March @ 3pm GMT
'Digital Technology and Human Vulnerability: Towards an Ethical Praxis’
In our first speaker session of the series, Dr Michele Aaron will be discussing her most current work Digital Technology and Human Vulnerability: Towards an Ethical Praxis’ which centred on the co-creation and then sharing of films by participants from John Taylor Hospice in Erdington. The Life:Moving exhibition, of the six films that resulted, has been shared with community groups, end of life professionals and the public in the UK and abroad.
