These gatherings take place every other Wednesday afternoon (3 pm – 4:30 pm CET) during the running semester and are intended to take advantage of the varied and diverse backgrounds of both the team members and the invited guests. The intention of these sessions is to provide an entirely inclusive and open forum for different perspectives on our respective invitees’ input. Discussions sometimes focus on written chapters and essays, and at other times on a creative project, intervention or exercise.
No prior preparation is required to attend the Colloquium meetings, but you’re likely to get more out of each encounter if you get acquainted with the respective guest’s research in advance. Discussions take place in English.
All are always welcome.
For upcoming and past colloquium sessions have a look through the Agenda.
Rules of Engagement
- Respectful disagreement should never be reprobative, but ameliorative and generous towards all present.
- Although shaped as a substantiated academic forum, we invite all references and insights from all parts of lived experience: philosophy to pop culture, literature to online media, science to anecdote.
- Keeping in mind 2) — do not assume that other people know what you know (i.e.: No name dropping, and please refrain from unsubstantiated reference to unexplained arguments, as much as this is possible in our short encounters together.).
