The MIT Press Bookstore Presents: the Ig Nobel Informal Lectures at MIT

Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Huntington Hall (10-250)

Please join us for some improbably funny, informative, and high-spirited public lectures, in which the new Ig Nobel Prize winners will attempt to explain what they did, and why they did it.

On Thursday, September 12, The Ig Nobel Prize Committee will award ten prizes to people who have done remarkable things, some of them admirable, some perhaps otherwise. On the following Saturday, September 14, we invite the winners to MIT and give them five minutes to describe and/or defend their work, then respond to insightful and amusing questions from the audience. Here's your chance to chat with an Ig Nobel Laureate!

All Ig Nobel Prize activities are organized by the Annals of Improbable Research.

The Ig Improbable Lectures are hosted by The MIT Press Bookstore.

For more information about the Lectures, call the MIT Press Bookstore at (617) 253-5249, email books@mit.edu, or visit the Annals of Improbable Research website here.
