'About Time' Public Lecture Series announced

(19 October 2012)

In 2012-13, under the auspices of the Institute of Advanced Study, visiting Fellows and Durham researchers are exploring the theme of Time. How has time been imagined in different cultural and historical contexts? How have ideas about time shaped nations and their ‘heritage’? How is temporality experienced and described? And how have technological advances in ways of measuring time changed people’s experiences of it, and enabled different ways of moving through and narrating time and space? These questions, and others, are illuminated in this series of public lectures entitled 'About time.'

'Navigation, Astronomy and Time-Keeping' by Professor Sir Arnold Wolfendale kick starts the series on Monday 3rd December 2012 (18:15).

Full details of speakers, dates and venues are all available alongside the extensive programme of the IAS's thematic activities on the IAS webpages.

Enquiries about all IAS activities can also be made directly to the Institute via email.
