Søren Kierkegaard - Copenhagen Noir

Start: May 17, 2013 12:00:00 AM
End: May 17, 2013 12:00:00 AM

5 May 2013 marks the bicentenary of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s birth. The aim of this symposium is to explore Kierkegaard’s writing on Copenhagen in relation to the theme of the uncanny. This will be done by superimposing the Copenhagen found in Kierkegaard’s writings with a contemporary and notoriously unsettling representation of this city: the TV-drama The Killing. Please refer to the event webpage for more information, which also has a link to the registration site.  Tickets are free, but limited, so please ensure you reserve your place.
