POSTPONED by one day due to Hurricane Ophelia

It can be hard to let go of ideas. Research reputations tend to be built on becoming well known in a specific area and doing more of the same thing. Letting an idea, approach or concept die off, and doing so with awareness can be daunting but may provide a path towards thinking of something really different and unusual.

At Research Purge, the Department of Ultimology offers an opportunity to consciously discard old ideas that might have reached the end of their lifespan. In an atmosphere of collective support, invited speakers will present ideas that they are ready to expel.

Join us for this ritual of letting go on October 17th in the seminar room at CONNECT, from 1pm–2pm. With contributions from Elma Avdic & Harun Siljak, Neal McBride, Luiz Da Silva, and Andreas Kindler von Knobloch.

Light lunch provided.
