Unseen University Convivium: The Countdown Begins

Postby Molokov » Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:24 am

As the days get shorter, and the weather colder, we hope that your anticipation for the Unseen University Convivium is ramping up! Ours certainly is - to quote the Librarian - "Oook! Oook! Eeek! Oook!"

EXCITING NEWS! ANNOUNCING VIRTUAL GUESTS

Through the magic of the Omniscope we have the fantastic opportunity to chat with some Discworld luminaries!

  • First and foremost, the man in the hat we all want to talk to - Professor Sir Terry Pratchett himself! Sir Terry has kindly agreed to join us for a call, and we are definitely looking forward to it!
  • Secondly, Professor Ian Stewart and Doctor Jack Cohen, co-authors of The Science Of Discworld series, will join us for an enlightening scientific discussion.
  • Our final virtual guest is the Cunning Artificer, Bernard Pearson, proprietor of the Discworld Emporium and creator of artwork, sculptures, stamps and currency.
Find out more about our guests (actual and virtual) here.

Many other additions and refinements of the Convivium programme have recently been made - find out the full details here.
