Muncaster Castle Paranormal Conference 2009
Things that go bump in the brain: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Paranormal and Anomalous Experiences
(in collaboration with UK-Skeptics - an educational charity)
Launching with a Welcome Reception in historic and reputedly haunted Muncaster Castle on Friday 18th September, this weekend conference will present papers from experts in subjects such as: -
Apparitions and Haunting
Out-of-Body and Near-Death Experiences
Survival of Bodily Death
The Sociology of Belief
The Role of the Paranormal in Cult Movies
The speakers will include a mix of “skeptics” and “believers” so the question and answer sessions as well as the networking and socialising opportunities are likely to be interesting! Confirmed speakers include Prof Chris French, Dr Jason Braithwaite and Nick Pope to name but a few.
As well as the daily programme on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September, there will be a gala dinner hosted by Peter Frost-Pennington of Muncaster Castle and Dr Jason Braithwaite, Cognitive Neuropyschologist from Birmingham University in the Castle on Saturday night.
