Censes Seminar series: Exploring the science and philosophy of olfaction
Interested in learning more about the science and philosophy of the sense of the smell? The Centre for the Study of the Senses (Censes) at the Institute of Philosophy are running a series of seminars in 2019, each one given by an expert guest speaker.
Each seminar will be held in Senate House at the University of London, Bloomsbury. The series is part of the AHRC Science in Culture Theme, which aims to encourage mutual exchange between researchers working across the Sciences and the Arts and Humanities.
Prof. Barry Smith, Censes Director, says that the seminars are a great opportunity to get a better understanding of the importance of the sense of smell: ‘We have assembled some of the world’s leading experts on olfaction to talk about the latest science and philosophical thinking about our sense of smell, its mysterious working and its place in our lives. The seminars are open to everyone and all are welcome.’

We’d like to say a big thanks to Prof Smith and Censes for the support they continue to give Fifth Sense and our cause, which started when they hosted our press launch at Senate House in 2014. Looking forward to working together to educate
