Death in Hobart, sex in Melbourne

Thursday, 23 June, 2016

The Australian Academy of Science’s Public Event Series is going on tour, presenting the science of life and death in a provocative and accessible format over five special events to be held across Australia. The Science of Life + Death series is designed to educate, entertain and push us to the edge of our comfort levels, starting a national conversation about life, death and beyond.

The series will kick off with DEATH in Hobart — a special event which will see three seasoned death experts share their stories and explore death from some fascinating angles: from preventing death and identifying the exact moment of death, to the science and logistics of mass death events, to why scientists are burying bodies in the Blue Mountains in name of research.

DEATH in Hobart will be held at the Theatre Royal on Monday, 27 June from 6 pm. Tickets start at $20 and are available at

The next event in the series, SEX, will be held in Melbourne on 26 July. It will look at the seductive world of sex — from the genes that determine the kind of sex we like, to new approaches in contraception, and how our relationship with sexually transmitted infections is changing.
