Chair

Dr Jonathan Birch

What is it like to be a bird? What do they think and how do they feel? What can comparative psychology tell us about the intelligence of birds? And what can we learn about birds, and about ourselves, from our encounters with them? In this dialogue, world-leading comparative psychologist Nicola Clayton and author and naturalist Mark Cocker give us a bird’s eye view on the world, and consider how human thought and culture have been shaped by interaction with birds.

Nicky Clayton (@nickyclayton22) is Professor of Comparative Cognition, University of Cambridge.

Mark Cocker (@MarkCocker2) is an author and naturalist

Jonathan Birch is a Fellow at The Forum and Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE
