The first Tykociner Memorial Lecture was held in 1972 in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the first public demonstration of sound-on-film by Professor J.T. Tykociner.
This distinguished event is being revitalized. In its modern iteration, it is a lectureship designed to advance and promote the goals, aims and purposes of zetetics. Zetetics is the science of research; it encompasses humanities, arts and social sciences, and physical sciences.
This year’s first lecture will be April 5, 2017. No RSVP is necessary.
