Evenings of Enlightenment - new public lecture series

A new cross-disciplinary lecture series called "Evenings of Enlightenment" celebrating the 2015 International Year of Light is about to begin! Join us at Summerhall on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm in May and June to hear about the latest light-based science research from across the University of Edinburgh, and then join us in the pub afterwards for a free drink! The talks are aimed at age 16+ and anyone is welcome to attend. Further details of all the talks, and links to Eventbrite for (free) tickets are on our website:

In particular, Dr Joan Simon from the School of Mathematics will be speaking on 4th June, giving a talk entitled "Black holes: the singular marriage between Quantum Mechanics & General Relativity through information".

Please email Julia Collins if you have any questions, and please do advertise the link among anyone you think may be interested.
