In Her Nature
*OWING TO ILLNESS, THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN RESCHEDULED TO 18 APRIL 2024*
Join the Digital Futures Institute’s Centre for Technology and the Body as we welcome Dr Rachel Hewitt, in conversation with Professor Fay Bound Alberti, to discuss her latest book In Her Nature: How Women Break Boundaries in the Great Outdoors (Chatto & Windus, 2023). A reflection on grief and the prejudices women have faced against their involvement in outdoor sport, as well as an examination of the inspiring individuals who have defied these challenges, In Her Nature has been called a book ‘that demands our attention’.
6pm Welcome, refreshments
6.30pm Conversation and Q&A
Rachel Hewitt is a best-selling, award-winning author of non-fiction, as well as a critic and broadcaster. She writes about running, the ‘great outdoors’, women and public space, grief and recovery, history and feminism, and memoir and biography.
Fay Bound Alberti is Professor of Modern History in the Department of History, Faculty of Arts and Humanities; and the Director of the Centre for Technology and the Body, King’s College London. She researches the histories of the body, medicine, emotion and gender, and in 2019 was awarded one of the first UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships to study the history and meanings of facial transplantation.
