The Forum Presents: Endlessly Dreaming

October 24, 2010

We are excited to announce a free public lecture on Wednesday 3 November in Parliament Hall at the University of St Andrews.  Dr. Grant Macaskill will be presenting a talk entitled “Endlessly Dreaming: Theological Engagements with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Comics.”  The talk will begin at 7:45pm and will be followed by a discussion about the theological questions raised by Gaiman’s Sandman comics.  Afterwards, there will also be free coffee and snacks!

Neil Gaiman is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top ten living post-modern writers, and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama.  Gaiman has won numerous awards, and you can learn more about his work at his website.

The Forum is an experiment in doing public theology.  It is a series of free, public events.  Each event will begin with a presentation that explores the interesting theological questions raised by a cultural artifact.  The presentation will be followed by time for formal discussion and informal mingling.  Each presentation is intended to be accessible and relevant to a large public audience.  The organizers hope that The Forum will provide a public space in which people can discuss questions about God and human existence.  If you are in St Andrews on 3 November, please come to The Forum and join the discussion.

    Hi, all!

    I won’t be in St. Andrews on Nov. 3rd, but I’d love to be able to listen in. Will Dr. Macaskill’s talk (and / or the following discussion) be available on the web?
