Following on from our successful four-day event at FACT in April 2018 we want to share our findings and continue the conversation on World Eyebrow Day, 2 October 2018.

Speakers include core members of the project:

Niamh Thornton, University of Liverpool
Jacqui McAssey, Liverpool John Moores University
Sarah Shrimpton, FaceLab, Liverpool John Moores University
Catherine Wilkinson, Edge Hill University
Samantha Wilkinson, Manchester Metropolitan University
and invited contributor, Penny Spikins, University of York, whose work on the significance of the brow to human evolution has been widely covered by the media.

This is an opportunity to find out more about our findings and keep the conversation going. We will also have a preview screening of the documentary on the brow with introduction by the director, Liz Greene, Liverpool John Moores University.
