Kahn Institute Meeting


"Fear of the Dark: How Our Fear of the Dark is Ruining Our Nights," Thursday, December 5, 7:30 p.m., Graham Hall, Hillyer

A timely lecture by Paul Bogard based on his book The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light, in which he explores how fear of the dark underlies the growing problem of light pollution and inhibits our ability to enjoy a naturally dark night. Fear of the dark is ubiquitous, ancient, costly, and reinforced by modern media, Bogard writes. While explaining what we can do about this fear, he reacquaints us with the irreplaceable value of the night. Part of the Kahn project, Fear.

This event is free, open to the public and wheelchair-accessible.
