Added due to popular demand: a new talk in the series Ghosts: The Evidence of Spirits. This free public lecture by Professor Douglas Davies thinks about how we ‘feel’ the dead around us. All welcome to Elvet Riverside 140, at 18.15 on 3rd May. 

Sometimes it seems that someone else is with us. With an eye to notions of grief, God, and identity, this talk combines historical and contemporary anthropological views with empirical and speculative material to explore such sensed presence, especially of the dead.

The final talk in this series will take place on 10th May, with Dr Michael Mack examining the The Cases of Henry James and Alfred HitchcockPodcasts from previous lectures in the series are available now.
