SKIN!

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis uncover the unexpected history of SKIN! Which is all about the history of love and beauty, seduction and eroticism; it’s about the skin as a canvas onto which society imprinted itself (tattoos, scars, markings), colour, race and identity; it’s also about protection; and the consumption of skins (fur and leather); and it’s also about HALLOWEEN via books bound in human skins and witches and amniotic membranes and love spells! Who knew!
