Berkman Luncheon Series
This is Improbable
Featuring Marc Abrahams and other special guests
Marc Abrahams -- publisher of the Annals of Improbable Research, host of the annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony, and author of several books (including his latest, This is Improbable: Cheese String Theory, Magnetic Chickens and Other WTF Research -- listen to Marc's NPR interview) -- will be joining us for a lively exploration of weird science, off-beat research, and things that go bump in the lab. Members of the Berkman Center community will join with a group of special guests to perform dramatic readings from bizarre studies discussed in Marc's new book, and answer questions about what they have read based on no special knowledge whatsoever.
