On Friday 21st November, I'll be giving a talk at the Dana Centre at London's Science Museum on the subject of writing about perfume and smell. The event will part of a series entitled The Hidden Senses, which comes under the banner of a project called Being Human, put together by the Arts & Humanities Research Council. If you're free on that day, it would be great if you could come along and support what sounds like a very interesting venture. In addition to my talk, the event will feature contributions from Ophelia Deroy, who'll be talking about the plating of foods, and John Silas, who'll explore the topic of smell and memory.
Attendance is free, but tickets have to be booked in advance, as the venue has limited capacity. To book tickets, please click on this link to Eventbrite. You should find a listing for two sets of events: one taking place between 3:30 and 5:00; the other taking place between 5:30 and 7:00. I'll be taking part in the second slot (5:30-7:00).
You may also be interested in this Eventbrite listing (click here). It's for a lecture being given by Professor Charles Spence, author of The Perfect Meal: The Multisensory Science Of Food And Dining. Spence will deliver the lecture twice, so you're free to choose which of the two times suits you best.
