Caveat

Join Morbid Anatomy at Caveat for a night devoted to death, science and the invisible.

We’ll welcome Mike Zohn of Obscura Antiques and TV’s Oddities who will tell us about the fascinating history of the Ouija board illustrated by genuine antique pieces from his own collection. We’ll also host professional forensic scientist Jay Stahl-Herz, who will educate us on the how and why of autopsies. Finally, mathematics professor Michael Carlisle will illuminate the surprising morbidity of the popular narratives of famous mathematicians’ lives, with a marked tendency to obsess on obscure abstraction, toil in isolation, and die young and/or in very unpleasant ways.
