SPECIAL PRE-TOUR EVENT.
We’re calling this event Improbable Research After Dark, because some of the studies are on topics that might possibly, conceivably, theoretically, offend individuals who are prim, proper, and of high sensibility. We advise that anyone who is easily offended by anything should not come to this event.Editor of the Annals of Improbable Science, author and Guardian writer, Marc Abrahams, hosts an all-star lineup of scientists (probably including one or more Ig Nobel Prize winners), science journalists, and other colourful individuals.Confirmed participants include: David Dobbs, Alexandra Feachem, Ania Lichtarowicz, Pallab Ghosh, Richard Grant, Valerie Jamieson, Alasdair Kergon, Ig Nobel winner Chris McManus, Sean O’Neill, Jenny Rohn, Elaine Snell, Ed Yong, Mark Henderson, Fiona Barclay, others to be announced.Each will do a simple, two-minute dramatic reading from a colourful study that was honoured with an Ig Nobel Prize.
This event will be smaller, less formal, and have a different format and content than the events on the tour and they'll also be time to have a chat with all the speakers on the night.
