Lunch Hour Lecture - Understanding sleep and sleeplessness: can science and cultural history be used together?

1:10 pm - 1:55 pm

Sleep is an enormous part of our lives: why do we do it?

And why do we sometimes struggle to do so? Biology cannot fully explain our experience of sleep. Writers have always been fascinated by it.

So, is it possible to combine science with literary and cultural history to understand sleep better?
