Theology and the Natural Sciences in Aotearoa: A Centre within the Laidlaw Carey Graduate School
This year we hope to feature three sessions looking at contemporary physics. The third of these will be beamed in from Germany—we hope.
We will be beginning the year with a joint University of Auckland/TANSA session featuring a visiting anthropologist from the University of Notre Dame.
All sessions start at 7pm unless otherwise stated. Come at 6pm for pizza. Please RSVP using the form at the bottom of this page.
There will be a $10 charge for pizza and a gold coin collection for the lectures/seminars
