The Dutch biologist and author Midas Dekkers was supposed to open the Insects and Society series of talks this Wednesday evening in Forum. However, he has broken his arm and so will not be coming.
The biennial series of talks on Insects and Society has been going since 1996. Eight talks explore the different roles of insects, for example as a source of inspiration for art or technology. But after all those years the main highlight is still the opportunity to eat insects. That will be possible on 12 January.
