Learn from leading academics at the Living Library

High-profile academics are bringing our library to life for the Festival of Research.

A string of high-profile academics, including Professor John Callaghan and Dr Rania Kosmidou, are transforming into ‘living books’ for visitors to borrow over tea and coffee on Tuesday 9 July at Clifford Whitworth Library.

Our living books – who are available for loan between 12pm and 2pm – will bring the library to life by discussing their research with you and answering any of your questions. They’ll give you the lowdown on the very latest developments in a wide variety of topics, from the history of Manchester to cutting edge radiography.

Six of the authors give you a taste of their research in the videos below. Come along on the day to hear their full story during our Festival of Research!
