In an era of microbial fear, brought on by the current Covid-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to understand how micro-organisms impact practices of health. This panel will invite conversations around how we can understand microbial bodies, and explore embodied and more-than-human systems of health.

Professor Jamie Lorimer (Environmental Geographer, University of Oxford)  
Marek Glogowski (Social Design, MA)

Paulien Nabben (Activity, BA)
