Shannon Lecture: Friday, 2 December, 2016

The final Shannon Lecture of the 2016 series sees Thomas Laqueur from UC Berkeley talking about his new book The Work of the Dead, focusing on the struggle for cremation.
Laqueur was interviewed about his book by Steve Paquin on TVO on Halloween:

The lecture starts at 2:30 pm. Exceptionally, in anticipation of a large audience, it will be given in room 282 in the University Centre, commonly known as the Unicentre, easily reached from the O-train and adjacent bus stops. Best be early to get a seat.
