Investigator Gwinyai Masukume reminds us about an upcoming (July 10-11, 2014) academic event in Malta. The organizers say:
The first Star Trek academic symposium. This is an event that differs from the traditional Fan-Based Convention in that it is a platform for academics from across many disciplines to meet and explore the intersection of humanities and sciences. It will be an academic meeting, with the presentation of scholarly papers that will explore the intersection of the humanities and the sciences. The event will be held under the auspices of HUMS a programme at the University of Malta that has been set up to explore and encourage the interfaces between the humanities, medicine and the sciences, and aims to facilitate and disseminate cross-disciplinary research. The Star Trek Symposium is the first of its kind and will be held on the beautiful, ancient Island of Malta. This is an event that will appeal to scientists and fans of StarTrek alike.
Professor Victor Grech MD, PhD (Malta), PhD (Lond.), FRCPCH, MRCP(UK), DCH, Associate Professor of Paediatrics, at the University of Malta, is one of the main organizers. He is the very same Professor Victor Grech MD, PhD (Malta), PhD (Lond.), FRCPCH, MRCP(UK), DCH, Associate Professor of Paediatrics who wrote the paper “Infertility in Star Trek”.
