ARGUS Night of Philosophy 10.06.2016

Eventbrite picture

This year’s Night of Philosophy is concerned with the topic of Place and Placelessness. Its general connotation has expanded beyond the discipline of human geography to merge with architecture’s praxis. “Place is now, and has ever been, part of our practice: the site of a building, dwelling, historical memory. It will be held upcoming Friday 10th of June and commence at 20:00.

Place is so deeply embedded in our daily routines/lives that we hardly take time and think about it. Now that we are surrounded by images of displacement of refugees, expats and world-travelling students, it becomes interesting to ask ourselves about what it means to have, or lose a place. Therefore the theme of this year’s Night of Philosophy will be: Place(less): Place and Identity in a Globalized World.

On this evening, guided by a philosopher, artist and a sociologist, we search for a deeper understanding of place. How are identity and social relations connected to places? We would like to address these questions and afterwards leave with more questions unanswered.

Our speakers with both a practical and theoretical background will give a short pitch of their vision regarding the topic. These pitches are followed by an informal discussion with the audience. Nelson Mota, assistant professor at the TU Delft will be our moderator for the evening.

We’re happy to announce the following speakers:
dr. Jacob Voorthuis, associate professor Philosophy in Architecture, TU Eindhoven, NL
dr. Julia Bennett, senior lecturer sociology, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
Jasper Coppes, visual artist, NL/UK

– Online Tickets available through: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/argus-night-of-philosophy-tickets-25510175622
