TICK TALKs: The Blind and Deaf Highway Woman

In TICK TALKs: The Blind and Deaf Highway Woman, we hear from Dr Undine Sellbach from the University of Dundee about her research and writing on the biologist Jakob von Uexküll, including his writing on ticks in which he presents the tick as a subject.

The shared foray explores the tick in our contemporary world and our heightened awareness of the tick as a pathogenic vector active within the complexities of its extended ecologies and environmental instabilities.
