11 Oct 202217:00 - 19:00HPS Boardroom and Babbage Lecture Theatre


An event organised by the Futures in Question research network.

Two separated registrations for the events.

17:00 – 17:25 (Hybrid event. Boardroom, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, New Museums Site, Free School Lane, CB2 3RH)

We invite everyone who plans on regularly attending this network to a brief introductory meeting. This will give us a chance to introduce ourselves and get a sense of common questions and curiosities. This meeting will start promptly at 17:00, so please be on time!

*Please register here, only if you are attending to this Introductory Session ONLINE.

17:30 – 18:45 (Online or In-Person at the Babbage Lecture Theatre, David Attenborough Building, New Museum Site, Pembroke Street, CB2 3QZ)

Our first session happens to coincide with a very relevant public lecture being given by Aarathi Krishnan entitled ‘Grey Mirror–is uncertainty about the future an opportunity for equality?’. Given that this event will likely be of great interest to participants in this network, we have decided to attend this lecture as a group. For those participating in this network remotely, the lecture can be viewed online. For those participating in this network from Cambridge, you have the option of attending the lecture in person. In either case, please be sure to *register at CSER for this event in advance. This lecture organised by the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER).

For Cambridge-based participants who plan to attend both the introductory meeting and the lecture in-person: the Babbage Lecture Theatre is a short walk from the HPS department. We will walk from the HPS department to the lecture theatre as a group at 17:25.

For enquiries please contact the Research Networks Programme Manager.
