The Dirt on Disgust
Thursday 14 July 2011, 19.00-20.30
Our relationship with and reaction to those objects, people and
places that we find 'disgusting' is central to our survival. How
did this first begin, and how does it manifest itself now? Taking
an anthropological perspective, this event will look at the role of
disgust in our earliest prehistory, current studies on our reaction
to that which is 'disgusting' and its future in modern
