Doings

For you L.A. locals, tonight I’m giving an informal talk at the Alhambra Library; all are welcome. Which reminds me of a few other public events coming up:

  • Of course TEDxCaltech is this Friday.
  • On Monday 24 January I’m giving a public lecture at my alma mater, Villanova University, on Philadelphia’s scenic Main Line.
  • For any glamorous cinephiles who will be at the Sundance Film Festival, I’ll be on a panel on Friday the 28th to talk about science and movies.
  • On January 30 I’m giving a talk for the Skeptic Society. No details yet, but it will be at Caltech. I’ll be busting out a brand new talk, on the laws of nature and the meaning of life.
  • On February 21 I’m giving a colloquium at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. No explicit public talk, but they usually allow interlopers.
  • On March 1 I’m giving a public lecture at Reed College in Portland. Back to the arrow of time for this one.
  • The last weekend in March, Jennifer and I are doing some sort of joint gig at the San Diego Science Festival. Details yet to coalesce.
  • On April 5 I’m doing a fun event as part of the ALOUD series at the LA public library. It’s a joint appearance with poet Jane Hirshfield. We’ll be seeking common ground between our disciplines; failing that, fisticuffs.

There are also some special big-ticket events coming up this summer — more once they are whipped into shape.

    No Boston? For shame. How can you think of yourself as having spoken if not heard in the Athens of America?

    Perhaps I’ll pay a visit to my alma mater as well later this month.

  • Christian Ready

    PS Sean, if you fancy some poker, I’d be happy to join you at Harrah’s in Chester.

  • Herb Myers

    Any plans for University of Arizona yet?

    You know we’re going to need video!

    No plans that aren’t listed. RBH, I think the Skeptic Society doesn’t generally put talk on the web. (Sometimes they sell videos to try to raise money.) Hopefully some other version of the talk will be recorded somewhere.

    Oh good golly, you get to hobnob with the glitterati in Sundance on their dime. How positively chic of you.
