Sleep is an enormous part of our lives and has fascinated scientists, artists and writers for centuries: Why do we sleep? And why do we sometimes struggle to sleep?

This symposium will include perspectives on sleep and sleeplessness from neuroscientists, clinicians, historians, artists, and cultural critics. The event will be co-chaired by Kimberley Whitehead, Research Associate in NPP, and Professor Matthew Beaumont, Professor of English Literature at UCL, and is supported by UCL Grand Challenges and The Physiological Society.
