Royal Astronomical Society of Canada: Speaker's Night with Dan Falk
November 25, 2015
Headliner(s): Dan Falk
Featured Titles: The Science of Shakespeare
7:30 pm at North York Civic Centre, Council Chambers, 5100 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON

Join special guest Dan Falk on Wednesday, November 25th from 7:30pm to 9:30pm for the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Toronto Centre's Speaker's Night and Annual Meeting.

William Shakespeare lived at a remarkable time, a period we now recognize as the first phase of the Scientific Revolution and yet Shakespeare and science are rarely uttered in the same breath. But as Dan Falk has found, a reassessment is at hand. In this illustrated talk, he will explore Shakespeare's interest in the scientific discoveries of his time, with a particular focus on the changing conceptions of the cosmos, from Aristotle to Copernicus and Galileo. Copies of his latest book, The Science of Shakespeare will be available for purchase and signing.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please click here.
