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.
This event is led by: AHRC-funded Scientific and Cultural Perceptions of Human-Chicken Interactions project
In partnership with: Vindolanda Trust, Practical Poultry, HenPower, Dr Anna Lavis, Dr Ben Coles, Professor Andrew Prescott
