Chicken Nuggets: A History of the World in 100 e.g.s

November 16, 2014

This event is organized by AHRC Large Grant ‘Cultural and Scientific Perceptions of Human Chicken Interactions’ as part of Being Human: A Festival of the Humanities

Human-chicken interactions are about much more than food.

Featuring researchers from the AHRC-funded Scientific and Cultural Perceptions of Human-Chicken Interactions project, this event highlights the centrality of animals in the human past and present, and how human-animal relationships have changed in recent history.

Taking over the Roman museum, research block, café and grounds of the Vindolanda Trust, researchers will present a day of activities exploring the place of chickens in human culture.

Talks, hands-on activities, and tasting sessions across the site will make clear the important role these creatures have for future human and animal health, well-being and environmental sustainability.
