Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series.  These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

The earth’s daily rotation affects just about every living creature. Professor of circadian neuroscience and the head of the Department of Ophthalmology at Oxford University Russell Foster explains how organisms can ‘know’ the time and reveals what we now understand of the nature and operation of chrono-biological processes.
