    Professor Simona Francese - 'What do Fingerprints reveal about you - a molecular tale'

    Professor Alice Bell - 'Digital Fictions and the (Impossible) Worlds They Create'

    In this talk I explore a form of fiction that is created specifically for the digital medium: digital fiction. Digital fictions combine text with other modes (such as image and sound) and are interactive, allowing readers to participate in the fiction making process by selecting their own path through a fictional world, conversing with characters, or determining the outcome of the story.

    Professor Jennifer Smith Maguire - 'Place, taste and why they matter: Researching wines off the beaten track'

    Wines are deeply bound up with notions of taste and place. A wine’s qualities—its acidity, tannins, flavours and aromas—have long been linked to terroir: the idea that wines taste of their place of origin, from the vineyard’s soil to the local winemaking heritage. ... My talk will explore the cultural production of artisanal wines, for which these links between place and taste are especially central.
