This programme also features Saariaho’s short work Ciel d’Hiver, which evokes a winter sky, and Debussy’s Nocturnes, all three movements of which shimmer with the motion of seascapes and the sounds of distant processions. 🎟️ Tickets

📅 Wednesday 8 January 2020
Ron Cooke Hub, Campus East, University Of York
Showcasing some of the fascinating research taking place at the University of York.
From Utah's Great Salt Lake to the majestic mountains of Africa, YorkTalks 2020 crosses continents - and academic boundaries. Join us for a fascinating whistle-stop tour through neolithic society, the world of competitive video games - and the deepest, darkest recesses of our sewage systems. We ask: is singing good for us? Are modern hospital buildings making us sick? How do we make robots safe?
There will be sixteen 15-minute talks throughout the day, grouped into four sessions, and a Q&A. You can attend a single session or all four.
