The Science of Survival in Game of Thrones

This talk will take you on a whirlwind tour behind the scenes of our novel paper examining morality and survival in the world of Game of Thrones. From conception to publication and beyond, this talk will centre around the intersection of survival analysis, popular culture, science communication, and education.
