Join us for a post-Halloween public lecture as Deborah Hyde takes an in depth look at the witch trials of sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe to discover a mixed bag of serial killers, political murders, fervent religionists and innocent victims. She will also examine the werewolf, so often representing the darkness of the human soul. Through film, history, fairy tales and analysis we will discover who is truly worse - man or beast?

It's time again for SkeptiCamp, our "open" skeptical and scientific conference! SkeptiCamp differs from a traditional conference in that the attendees themselves also function as presenters. Audience interaction and participation is not only welcome, but also encouraged. Please note that all attendees must register in order to secure a spot. We again expect to have a full house of attendees and we encourage you to register early, as we cannot guarantee space will be available for onsite registrants.
If you are interested in leading a session at SkeptiCamp please take a look at our Presenter's Guide. Again, we have a limited number of spaces, so if you'd like to present we encourage you to submit your application early!
