2007: The Greatest Show UnEarthed!!
Over the past five years, UNIV-CON has
transformed itself in to one of the largest and most influential
paranormal conferences in the country. Thousands have attended
UNIV-CON in the past, and every year the numbers grow. To this day, UNIV-CON is still the only major paranormal conference held at a university. UNIV-CON holds that university mentality of continuing education, research and a safe environment to present new ideas. It is a place to learn and discuss paranormal investigation methods, psychology and the paranormal, UFOlogy, demonology, ethics, integrity and more. It is also a great place to enjoy entertainment.
The lineup of UNIV-CON speaks for itself. Look at it and compare it to other events. The integrity and atmosphere of UNIV-CON has spread throughout the community and UNIV-CON continues to gain access to many in-demand speakers that rarely participate in conference events. Some of these speakers include legend John Keel, who has agreed to come out of retirement; Lorraine Warren, the world's top demonologist; and Father James Lebar, a well-known Roman Catholic priest.
UNIV-CON offers a trademark variety
of events, including academic workshops, committees, entertainment,
ghost hunts, debates and social outings. It is more than a conference, it is a cultural event to celebrate the paranormal, its pioneers, investigators and attendees.
This year, UNIV-CON and its guests are taking it upon themselves to partake in a series of major and historical events. Researchers and investigators will form committees to listen and debate on topical paranormal community issues such asdemonology,research ethics, scientific endeavors and structural/legal issues. These committees and their work will take place in public. Learn more about this historic undertaking by visiting the ISEE COMMITTEE.
Starting this year, UNIV-CON lectures have a new home: Schwab Auditorium! Schwab will be able to house over a thousand attendees, which is a few hundred more than the Thomas Building could afford. Likewise, Schwab is more suitable for large events. PSU students and attendees will be welcomed by a full staff including seating ushers, designated merchandise areas, etc. Schwab also offers balcony seating.
conference takes place at University Park, PA, home of
Penn State University. We hope you'll join us this year
for UNIV-CON VI: THE GREATEST SHOW UNEARTHED, held October 18-21st, 2007. Be a part of history!
