University of Greenwich
July 16-19, 2015
Arrangements Chair: David Luke
Program Chair: TBD
This July, the Parapsychological Association (PA) will be coming to London, England for its 58th annual convention. The event will be held at the University of Greenwich, where scientists and scholars from around the world will gather for three days of paper presentations, workshops, and panel discussions on the latest research into psi and related phenomena, such as extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, psychic healing, altered states of consciousness, mediumship and possible survival of bodily death. Organized by Past PA President, Dr. David P. Luke, the event will be open to the public and to academics alike.
The Greenwich Campus is on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames. The campus is centered on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century. The university's Stephen Lawrence Gallery provides a showcase for the work of contemporary artists, and the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, in which the Greenwich Campus is situated, also houses the tourist attractions of the Painted Hall and Chapel. Also happening at the University of Greenwich from July 10 - 12, 2015 is Breaking Convention - a biennial interdisciplinary conference on psychedelic consciousness, science and culture (see the 2013 program here), organized by Dr. Luke.
Greenwich is a bustling town with a great atmosphere fostered by markets, pubs, clubs and restaurants. Up the Creek, a comedy and cabaret club, offers up-and-coming names in stand-up and is a short walk from the campus. Greenwich is home to the Cutty Sark, a 19th-century clipper ship, and the National Maritime Museum, as well as one of London’s finest Royal Parks. East meets West on the Greenwich Meridian line, which divides the hemispheres and marks longitude zero. The line runs through the courtyard of the 17th-century Royal Observatory and indicates the spot from which Greenwich Mean Time is calculated.
We hope you'll join us at the University of Greenwich this summer. Convention details are coming together quickly, so please check back at the website and at our social media sites for more information as it becomes available.
