Worlds of Taste

How Is Society Affected by Smelling and Tasting?

Burning plastic, grandma’s apple pie, or the smell of someone we love: there is no other sense that causes a reaction as immediate as smell. The perceptions of smell and taste are closely tied to our emotions, which is why they play a special role in our common life in society. How do smelling and tasting affect social identity and distinction? How do they affect social integration and cohesion? We will discuss these and further questions with the following speakers:

Prof. Dr. Dr. Hanns Hatt, professor of Cell Physiology at Ruhr University in Bochum and president of the Akademienunion (Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities)

Prof. Dr. Thomas O. Höllmann, professor of Chinese Studies and Ethnology and president of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities

PD Dr. Anne-Rose Meyer, Literature and Cultural Studies scholar at Leibniz University in Hannover and University of Wuppertal

Sissel Tolaas, artist and smell expert

Moderator: Tanja Runow, Deutschlandradio

Exhibition: Smell installations by Camilla Nicklaus-Maurer
