"The Quick and The Dead"


In her ongoing research, Prof. Roosth asks: At what pace must life proceed in order to count as life? How do qualities such as speed, slowness, time, and temperature shape the ways in which we think about life as form, pattern, or process? What is the place of latency in the life sciences and allied disciplines?
