Battling Boffins Smackdown!

Controversy and healthy, informed conflict as scientist Kate Cross and humanities scholar Anindya Raychaudhuri commence an academic smackdown in a battle to answer YOUR questions about anything and everything. Who has the right answers: science or humanities?  You decide!

What can the humanities tell us about how knees work?

What does science have to say about 17th-century French literature? Can you think of a better question we should ask?  Kate Cross and Anindya Raychaudhuri (University of St Andrews) engage in hand-to-brain combat in a fight over who has the Grandest Theory of Everything.
