Event Information

In 1943, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Erwin Schrödinger gave three public lectures entitled ‘What is Life?’ at Trinity College Dublin. These lectures expanded the field of biology, and we are marking their 75th anniversary with a special series of lunchtime seminars.

Returning to the theatre in which Schrödinger delivered those iconic lectures, we will discuss the exciting and dynamic interface between neuroscience and the humanities, as part of Trinity College Dublin’s Neurohumanities programme. Each seminar will be chaired by an academic whose research intersects with the themes of “What is Life?”, and will feature four speakers—two from the sciences, and two from the humanities.

Our third discussion will explore the the theme of CONSCIOUSNESS. Chaired by Dr Paul Dockree from the School of Psychology, speakers will include Dr Lorina Naci from the School of Psychology, Dr Lorraine Leeson, Director of the Centre for Deaf Studies, and Dr Noel Fitzpatrick, Dean of Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media at DIT.

Light lunch will be provided after the seminar.
