Goodbye 2016 – you have been strange!

It was 2009 when dit’ e nat’ started the tradition of going crazy in the afternoon of the last day of the year. We see this as a great chance to leave stuff behind and wash the energy for the new year that awaits us.

As far as we remember, there hasn’t been a stranger year than 2016. So let’s say goodbye to its last rays of cold sun with some happy and warm songs.
Gipsy Groove will be playing an acoustic set after which Genc Salihu and friends will join the usual end of the year jam.

See you on the 31st at noon!

The #FailedIntellectual | Eric Jarosinski

Join us for an evening with Eric Jarosinski, a former professor who has gone on to lead a very different life as a #FailedIntellectual online.
In exploring the comic potential of German language, literature, and philosophy on Twitter, his feed NeinQuarterly has gained a highly diverse global audience.
In his talk, moderated by Agon Maliqi, Eric will address the potential (and limitations) of adapting traditional modes of philosophical thought to a new technology with its own complex language, codes, and conventions. Throughout, he will discuss a strategy not of simplifying or popularizing philosophy, but of demystifying its terminology, gently toppling its idols, and playfully unsettling its authority.

The talk will take place on Thursday (2nd of June 2016) in dit’ e nat’.
