Dragon Hall Debate: Exhaustion
Monday 23 September, 7 - 9pm (doors 6.30pm)
National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall, 115-123 King Street, Norwich, NR1 1QE
Are we working too hard? Is burnout a phenomenon just for millennials, or have we always been pushed to our limits? There’s no doubt that we’re all feeling exhausted, but what is that lack of sleep actually doing to our bodies? In this debate, writer and journalist Dawn Foster will critique the notion of millennial burnout, UEA’s Dr Alpar Lazar will examine the link between lack of sleep and the onset of dementia, and author Dr Anna Katharina Schaffner will argue that exhaustion has always been a part of our collective narrative.
The Dragon Hall Debates - presented by UEA and the National Centre for Writing - tackle the biggest questions in science, culture and politics. Come along and hear from the panel, then join the conversation and have your say. All are welcome, and no prior knowledge is needed.
