Public Engagement Initiatives Organised:

  • “Forty Winks Café”, November 2020, an online event, free and open to all, on sleep, health and culture, featuring talks by myself, Professor Katy Shaw and Professor Jason Ellis. The event was part of Being Human Festival 2020, the UK’s only nationwide festival of the humanities, and was held in partnership with New Writing North. Thanks to our attendees’ and speakers’ suggestions, we crowd-sourced a list of reading/viewing/listening suggestions about sleep – you can download it here.
