What’s in a Face?

20 November, 2020, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

Hear different perspectives on face transplants and their emotional and cultural impacts at this panel discussion. Led by surgical educator Roger Kneebone, the discussion will also explore what our views on face transplants might tell us about current beauty standards, face equality, and self-representation in the age of the selfie. Roger’s guests include actor Adam Pearson, surgeon Dan Saleh, motivational speaker Tulsi Vagjiani, and sculptor Eleanor Crook. Over the course of 90 minutes, you will explore themes of appearance and transplantation, and will have the opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A.

This event will be held online via Zoom and is free to attend but registration is required. This event contains no graphic images so is suitable for all ages, but is aimed at audiences of 18 and above.

This event is part of the ‘AboutFace’ series led by the University of York.
