Doing my part to bridge the Two Cultures

Admittedly, not very much!

I'm giving a talk at 4pm, next Friday, 16 May 2008, in the Fritz Loewe Theatre at the School of Earth Sciences, University of Melbourne. The title is "Facing Armageddon: Britain and the Bomber, 1908-1941" and it will be a broad overview of my thesis topic. It should be fun, for me at least -- it's the department where I've worked for many years as the IT manager, so it will nice (and perhaps challenging) to try to explain to all the geologists and climatologists exactly what it is I've been doing these past few years. Thanks to Malek Ghantous of the Earth Sciences Postgraduate Group for the invite and for organising this -- it's the first, and quite possibly the last, time a poster has been made to advertise a talk I've given!

If anybody local has nothing better to do on a Friday afternoon, you're more than welcome to attend the talk (and enjoy the refreshments afterwards). Perhaps just drop me a line first, though, so we can anticipate any massive surge of interest (ha!) There's a map showing where Earth Sciences is after the jump. (The lecture theatre is on the 2nd floor, right near the main entrance, just past the disused theremin/mural ...)

  1. I echo Ricardo's question. It would be great to have your session available in some sort of online format. I'd really like to hear this!

    Actually, I had been thinking about putting the presentation part of it online, maybe using Slideshare or something like that. But that wouldn't be very informative by itself, so it would need to be synced with either the text or the audio. I don't know if I can use the lecture theatre's mic for recording but I could try using my laptop's ...

    Anyway, I'll see what I can do!
