New series of cultural-scientific events “The Last Thursday”, starting 24/9 in Uppsala

After a summer of rest, we come back with a new agenda of activities and meetings of the SFFS. The first change is a series of meetings called “The Last Thursdays”, which will take place in different locations during the last Thursday of every month. These will be informal meetings around a session of scientific/outreach/cultural character. We are pleased to announce the first of these meetings, which will take place this week in Uppsala and that you are kindly invided to attend!

Session: “Fray Luis de León anónimamente en medio de la naturaleza (o cómo leer un poema que todos conocéis)”, given by Prof. Anthony John Lappin (National University of Ireland Maynooth). The session will be in Spanish.

Date: Thursday 24 September, 18:30
Place: SciLifeLab Central Room, BMC, Uppsala (see directions below).

Anthony, English born, Swedish resident and quite Spanish in the heart, is an expert in Spanish medieval literature who will teach us to read Fray Luis de León in this outreach session. This will take place in the central room/lobby of SciLifeLab Uppsala, which is an ideal place to host an informal meeting like this one, and so we could also serve a little snack along the lecture. The event will be completely free for our associates, but for organizing purposes we kindly ask you to confirm attendance by email to aces.directiva at (each confirmation will receive a voucher for one consumption during the session). People from Uppsala has no excuse, and those from Stockholm should come after our workday, it is a great opportunity to visit us during the session! We can continue the meeting in pub Katalin, beside Uppsala Central Station.

Access to the room is through entrance B11 of BMC (see map below). This is the closest door to the bus stop (buses 3, 14, and 20 from Central Station every 10 min). Access to BMC is restricted at that time, we will have someone waiting at the door between 18:15-18:30 to make sure no one will be left out. Again, confirming attendance to aces.directiva at will be of great help!! 🙂

Come on, we are waiting for you!
