Goldsmiths Library Showoff

Goldsmiths Library Showoff

Thu 03 October 2019 19:00-22:00 - Library Groundfloor

Chaotic cabaret featuring a line-up of Goldsmiths academics who will delve into the weird and wonderful side of their research.

What happens when you fill a library with lovely people, booze, then invite loads of amazing researchers to entertain them?

Join us at Goldsmiths Library Social Learning Space on Thursday, 3 October as Goldsmiths researchers take you on a high-speed dash through their chosen subjects. Expect laughs, facts that sound totally made up but aren't, and loads of terrible PowerPoints.

Hosted by comedian and compere Steve Cross.

Line up:

  • Sarah Cox (History) Grappling With History: The Search For JackWannop And His New Cross Wrestlers
  • Caspar Addyman (Psychology) Answers to the meaning of life
  • Dash MacDonald (Design) Protesteroo: Re-routing Hope & Resistance
  • Gustav Kuhn (Psychology) Lessons in the Sinister Art of Misdirection
