ACA Lecture Series

Free and Open to the Public
The Atheist Community of Austin hosts a monthly lecture series as a community service and a means of promoting and disseminating ideas of interest to atheists and the greater Austin community. Lecture topics usually focus on core areas of atheist interest such as science, skepticism, the impact of religion, philosophy, church/state separation, and community activism. While many of our lecturers are PhDs, lectures are targeted to a lay audience of people who want to enrich their understanding.

We usually hold our lectures at the Austin History Center, located downtown at 9th and Guadalupe (Yahoo map). Lectures are scheduled usually on the 2nd Sunday of every month starting at 12:15pm. We meet in the "Reception Room". The building opens at noon.

Our next lecture will be presented on October 12, 2014 at 12:15 p.m..
