Samhain agus Science, now in its 5th year, is an annual initiative of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies taking place each year during Halloween. From spooky science to the mysteries of the Celtic festival of Samhain, DIAS scholars from the Schools of Celtic Studies, Theoretical Physics, Astrophysics and Geophysics host a programme of public events.
This year’s festival ran from 27 October to 07 November with a total of six events (see below), representing all our schools. Five of the six events were in person, from Mitchelstown Cave, to Burlington Road and DIAS Dunsink Observatory. Our final event (07 November) took place over Zoom.
A very special thanks to all our speakers for taking the time to share their knowledge and expertise with the audience. Thanks to all our other contributors and support staff. And finally thanks to everyone who attended one, or several, of our events during the festival. If you missed any of the talks, check out the YouTube links below the graphics. Onwards towards Samhain Agus Science 2023!
