Schedule for HUMA Seminars and Book Lunches for the First Semester, 2012
10 February 2012
After a very engaging set of interdisciplinary seminar series and book lunches inaugurated last year, HUMA will be continuing these, both informed by our two central research themes, On Being Human and Circuits of Consumption.Our hope is to generate a cumulative and inclusive conversation around these two loosely and expansively formulated themes. All seminar presentations are based on original research and/or analysis – be it theoretical or empirical. The range of presenters will offer work in progress, as well as more polished.We have settled on Thursday lunchtime (from 13h00 to 14h30) as our regular seminar slot.
As for the Book Lunches, these will continue with much steam this year. The book lunch gives an opportunity for authors to have their books rigorously discussed with constructive commentary. The Book Lunch series will be monthly on Mondays (13h00- 14h30). All Seminars and Book Lunches are open to all staff, students and interested others. Lunch is served from 12h30 onwards.
