New research seminar, ‘Fluid Physicalities’, 15 Jan 2016

Fluid Physicalities is a new research seminar convened at Birkbeck College by Anthony Bale and Esther Leslie, and funded by the Wellcome Trust. We will meet throughout 2016 and explore all manner of bodily fluids and their cultural, historical, and phenomenological aspects.

Our first meeting is next Friday, 15th January (6pm), when Isabel Davis will present a paper, ‘Waiting to wee: towards a history of pregnancy testing’, with responses from Lisa Baraitser and Sophie Jones. Liquid refreshments will, of course, be served.

Venue: Keynes Library, Birkbeck School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1.

All are welcome. Further details of our activities for the year to come are at
