FREE Lunchtime Masterclass Talks: The Glasgow Incunabula Project.

FREE Lunchtime Masterclass Talks: The Glasgow Incunabula Project.

Date: Friday 30 January 2015
Time: 12.10 - 13.00
Venue: Room 201, John McIntyre Building, University of Glasgow
Speaker: Julie Gardham

15th century printed books ('incunabula') are fascinating on many levels – as innovative survivors of the first print revolution with its technological shift from manuscript to print, as late medieval texts available in duplicate to a commercial mass market for the first time, and as cultural artefacts containing over 500 years of ownership history. Many of them are beautifully produced, with interesting bindings and visually appealing decoration and illustrations. This five year project has described and catalogued Glasgow University's outstanding collection of over 1000 incunables, to make them more widely known to research students and to a more general public.

The Sun: our local star

The Sun: our local star

Date: Wednesday 4 February 2015
Time: 12.00 - 13.00
Venue: Merchants House, 7 West George Street, Glasgow
Speaker: Dr Alec Mackinnon

Innocuous looking in the sky, the Sun is nonetheless an amazing object, a globe of gas enormous on a human scale. We'll take a quick look at the nature of our Sun, comparing it with other stars. Why does it not cool down and stop shining? Spacecraft experiments reveal a dynamic object, ever changing, dominated by magnetic fields, occasionally suffering explosions that throw clouds of gas into space. We'll take a close look at these beautiful and enigmatic phenomena, as well as some of their consequences here on Earth.
