Two talks next week in the UK

With the end of Lent comes the end of my staying-at-home. Having fasted of going somewhere fast, I am now looking forward to two talks in the United Kingdom, the week after Easter.

On Friday, April 25, at 6:30 pm, I will be appearing at Leeds Trinity University to speak on "Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?" This will be the first time I include material from the upcoming book of the same name in a public talk. We'll see how it goes.

On Saturday, April 26, I am speaking at the Spring Conference for the Society for the History of Astronomy in Manchester; mine is the final talk of the conference, and has the title "Angelo Secchi and the Jesuit Influence in Astronomy." According to their web site, "The SHA Spring Conference 2014 will take place on Saturday 26 April 2014 between 9.30am-5pm at Chetham’s Library, Long Millgate, Manchester. M3 1SB. Chetham’s Library, founded 1653 is the oldest public library in the English-speaking world. Owing to limited seating (65 max), early pre-booking at £5 per SHA member (£10 non-members) is strongly advised." The setting itself sounds like it might be worth the price of admission.

I have no idea if these venues are anywhere in range of anyone reading my "specolations" but if you are, feel free to come along.
