There's a new not-for-profit organisation called Dublintellectual which "organises free events where established and up-and-coming scholars, along with cultural figures, present their research in informal settings (such as bars and coffee shops) without jargon and in a manner which promotes conversation". They're holding an event this evening in Shebeen Chic, 4 South Great Georges Street, at 8:30. The speakers and their subjects are:
Dr. Darryl Jones, School of English, Trinity. "Ghost Stories"
Michael McDermott, Publisher, LeCool Magazine: "New Media & Culture"
Dr. Harvey O' Brien, Film Studies, UCD. "Never too old for this Sh*t: Old Guys in Action Movies"
