India – virtually and then physically

I’m doing an online (google hangout/youtube) chat about I, Superorganism on Friday this week, as part of a clever “virtual literary festival” running from Mumbai.

Details here.

This is a nice prelude to a ten day visit to India for a six city lecture tour, thanks to the British Council and the Indian network of Institutes for Interdisciplinary Science Education and Research, at the initiative of IISER Pune. I’ve never been to the country, so looking forward to being fascinated/everwhelmed/exhausted by it (delete whichever is inapplicable).

I begin at the separate literary festival in Mumbai, then lecturing variously on futures, planetary observation and the microbiome, and doing a couple of writing workshops. I’ll post the full schedule here before I go.
