Cambridge Series 20: Freezing Fertility, How Reproductive Ageing is Changing in the 21st Century

Hay Festival 2018, 

Egg freezing is an increasingly popular reproductive technology that offers the potential of staying fertile later in life. Yet while it opens up possibilities of having children at a later age, promise of ‘rewinding the biological clock’ also encourages younger, presumably fertile, women to undergo infertility treatment. Dr Lucy van de Wiel will discuss how egg freezing profoundly shifts our understanding of what it means to be fertile, and to age. Dr van de Wiel is a Research Associate at the Reproductive Sociology Research Group.

Ruchir Sharma


Durante el boom mundial de la última década, los vendedores de Wall Street se aferraron a un acrónimo para los mercados emergentes más candentes y más grandes. Brasil, Rusia, India y China se convirtieron en BRIC. Ahora que el boom se ha acabado, muchas de las naciones emergentes están sufriendo, incluyendo las que conformaban BRIC. En América del Sur, nuevas estrellas están emergiendo, como Venezuela, Perú, Colombia o Argentina y Brasil se están desacelerando bajo líderes que ejercen el poder del Estado con mano dura. Ruchir Sharma, autor de Breakout Nations: In pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles, hablará sobre estos cambios.

Fictions: New Life

Hay Festival 2018, 

Ólafsdóttir’s Hotel Silence won the Icelandic Literature Prize. Jónas feels his life is over. His wife has left him, his mother is slipping deeper into dementia, and his daughter is no longer the person he thought. He decides to buy a one-way ticket to a war-ravaged country and end to it all. But on arriving at Hotel Silence, his plans dissolve. Meruane is one of the most prominent voices in Chilean literature. In Seeing Red a Chilean writer moves to New York to pursue an academic career. While at a party her eyes haemorrhage. Blood floods her vision, rendering her all but blind. As she adjusts to a very different life, those who love her adjust to a very different woman – one who is angry, raw, funny, sinister, sexual and dizzyingly alive.

Violet Moller

The Map of Knowledge

Hay Festival 2019, 

Moller traces the journey taken by the ideas of three of the greatest scientists of antiquity through seven cities and over a thousand years. From Muslim Córdoba to Catholic Toledo, from Salerno’s medieval medical school to Palermo, capital of Sicily’s vibrant mix of cultures and, finally, to Venice, where that great merchant city’s printing presses would enable Euclid’s geometry, Ptolemy’s system of the stars and Galen’s vast body of writings on medicine to spread even more widely. Moller reveals the web of connections between the Islamic world and Christendom, connections that would both preserve and transform astronomy, mathematics and medicine from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Chaired by Oliver Balch.
