Student-Fellows Interaction Talk
Dr Joan Camps: Black holes and quantum information. In the last century we witnessed impressive advancement in the theoretical understanding of black holes. One of the key lessons was that gravity is a holographic phenomenon, meaning that one of the dimensions of space is not fundamental. Space should therefore emerge from a more elementary concept. Current research suggests that the crucial element for this emergence is quantum information. Port and cheese provided.

27th November, 7.30pm, Dining Hall
Members' Concert
The Members' Concert is a termly tradition where members of Clare Hall (fellows, students, family members), of all levels of proficiency, will be sharing their musical talents. This time, the line-up includes piano and flute music, songs composed by our very own troubadour, art song, and much else! The event is, as always, completely free. Snacks will be served, and the bar will be open.

We encourage all members of the Clare Hall community, students, fellows, families and friends, to attend what promises to be an enjoyable event.
