Talks, Debates & Lectures taking place at Conway Hall

June 2018

Join the London Fortean Society in London’s dark heart for a day of modern monsters and urban myth. Our cityscapes are full of strange wonders, terrors and tales. Talks include tales of Spring-heeled Jack, Slenderman, subterranean lore, the Crying Boy and the Hackney Bear.

Almighty Dollar

Why would a nation build a bridge on the other side of the planet? Why is China the world’s biggest manufacturer – and the USA its biggest customer? Is free trade really a good thing?

Join us for a discussion with David WoodIndra Adnan and Dr Lina Dencik about whether the age of big data and artificial intelligence will mean the demise of democracy as decisions are taken over by the algorithms of these techniques.

Fake-Information

Thomas Jefferson once observed that “information is the currency of democracy.” If this is right, what happens when that currency is corrupted by bad information — alternative facts, fake news, conspiracy theories and pseudo-science? This is the question that Mike Flood will pose in this talk.

Cathi Unsworth

Cathi Unsworth interweaves the true stories of the Hagley Woods mystery of 1943 and the trial of Helen Duncan, the last woman to be prosecuted for witchcraft in the UK, in 1944.
