Postby naa48 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 11:52 am

Keele Physics Centre Public Lecture Series 2018-19

Good Morning All

Date: 17th January 2019
Time: Lecture starts at 19:30, FREE tea & coffee available in LJ foyer from 18:30
Location: LJ1.75, Lennard Jones Laboratories, Keele University, ST5 5BG
Speaker: Prof. Andrew Newsam (Liverpool John Moores University)
Title: Universal Appeal
Abstract: For centuries science and art went hand-in-hand, but more recently they seem to have diverged into two distinct "cultures". However, they still have much to gain from each other and in this talk Andy will describe some forays by an astronomer into the world of art to try to explore challenging concepts with unsuspecting audiences. From computer music to dance, theatre to gardening shows, and exploring science from gravity and the nature of Dark Matter, to the physics of breakfast, we will see some ways in which art and science can work together, and also perhaps ask whether the two cultures are really as different as they might at first seem.
Cost: FREE!

These talks are open to the public and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP. Everyone welcome!
