Live Murder Ballads! Positive Vs Negative Thinking With The Guardian's Oliver Burkeman! Extraterrestrial Pulp! Upcoming Morbid Anatomy Events

We have many wonderful new and upcoming events to announce!

This week, we can't wait for Wednesday's debate between The Guardian's Oliver Burkeman and author Mitch Horowitz on whether positive or negative thinking offers the best path to fulfillment. We also have a night of midcentury 3D with Eric Drysdale (tonight): body horror in Japanese animation with JR Pepper (Tuesday); Dr Elly Truitt on Medieval automatons (Thursday); and, on Saturday, a class in anthropomorphic mouse taxidermy with taxidermist in residence Divya Anantharaman.

We also have some exciting new events to announce, including live murder ballads with Ilan Moss and Alex Kramer; an evening of extraterrestrial pulp with journalist Mark Jacobson and science-fiction novelist/flying saucer collector Jack Womack; a history of short-statured entertainers by burlesquer Trav S.D; a night devoted to Carl Jung's transformative experiences with archetypes with Langston Khan and Demetrius Lacroix; and a talk on the symbolic meaning of skulls in Renaissance Europe. We also have loads on new classes on the arcane arts of Victorian hairwork, bat skeleton articulation, and a variety of taxidermy classes; see our list of newly announced events below for more.

On Sunday June 26th, we hope you'll make it out to at our first Williamsburg-based Morbid Anatomy Flea Market with nearly 30 vendors selling mourning jewelry, taxidermy, antique osteology, rare books and ephemera, and assorted curiosities. There will also be readings by the Tarot Society; and, of course, cocktails. Museum members get access one hour early and cut the line all day; more on membership here.

Full list of events follow. Hope very much to see you at one ore more!
