Announcement: Sheffield Gothic does 24 Hour Inspire

The 24 Hour Goth Slot

The 24 Hour Inspire is Inspiration for Life's flagship fundraising event. Its a 24 hour lecture marathon, featuring back to back half hour talks on life, the universe and everything, all accessible to a non-specialist audience. It raises funds through the sale of tickets and refreshments, and through general donations (you can read more about it here).

This year, Sheffield Gothic is taking part in this amazing event with three fantastically Gothic talks from 3.00am-4.30am. Yes, you read that right we are talking about the early hours in the morning - but what better way to celebrate the witching hour than to delve into the dark depths of the Gothic with your friendly neighbourhood Goths! Our own co-organiser (Mary Going) will be speaking about Dracula's Jewish shadow, while two members of our fabulous Gaming the Gothic Team (the wonderful project lead Emily Marlow from SIIBS and honorary Sheffield Goth Ash Darrow from MMU) will take you on a tour of Gothic gaming as they explore religion and ludology. So, join us as we explore vampires, religion, and gaming across the Gothic. 

The 2018 24 Hour Inspire will take place on 19-20 April 2018, in the Hicks Building at the University of Sheffield (you can find the full schedule of talks along with more details here). All funds raised will be donated to Rotherham Hospice and Impact Living.
