The Stuff of LifeBook - 2013
In this year's CBC Massey Lectures, author Lawrence Hill offers a provocative examination of the scientific and social history of blood, and on the ways that it unites and divides us today. Blood pulses through religions, literature, and the visual arts, and every time it pools or spills, we learn a little more about what brings human beings together and what divides them. This is a fascinating historical and contemporary interpretation of blood, as a bold and enduring determinant of identity, gender, race, culture, citizenship, belonging, privilege, deprivation, athletic superiority, and nationhood.
