The Lesser-Known Arts & Sciences are the crawlspaces of a university. Our faculty and programs provide the opportunity to poke at the oddities of the natural world. Myths, legends, rumours, and sightings—we bring these all together in a critical context of storytelling, outdated classroom technologies, and inexpensive ales and pilsners.
Lesser-Known Arts & Sciences Faculty and visiting scholars ask— and no need to answer!—questions about the rough edges of knowledge, where facts fade into wonder.
An Evening of Hexes & Hoaxes
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Royal Canadian Legion Branch No.1
116 7 Ave SE
The Faculty of Lesser-Known Arts & Sciences returns from their sabbatical, and cordially extends an invitation to their third gathering: An Evening of Hexes and Hoaxes.
