Free Emory talk: Sleep Across The Disciplines

Event Date and Time: 
11/10/2010 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

From Emory's Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture, an event free and open to the public: Sleep Across The Disciplines.  While the study of sleep has become an important area of scientific and medical inquiry over the past century, it is still relatively hidden from view in the humanities and social sciences.  The historian Roger Ekirch and anthropologist Carol Worthman are two of the first to explore in depth sleep’s vicissitudes across the centuries and across different cultural boundaries.  They will be  joined in conversation by two prominent medical researchers, Carlos Schenck and David Rye, to discuss how different disciplinary approaches to our nightly experience of unconsciousness can inform each other.
