Three hoorays

Today, the paper told me that January 2014 has been the darkest month since 1983, the year that they started counting the sun hours. We had 8 (!!!) hours of sun here in our University town. Hooray for February and for the at least three hours of sun that we had today!

Another hooray for the fact that vårterminen (Spring Term) has started here, because that means: Open Lectures. As every term, we'll have three lectures here at CTR, often followed by an informal get-together in a pub or restaurant. The theme of this term: 'Visualizing Holiness in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.'
Thursday March 13th, 18.15, room 118
Visual Celebrations of the Biblical Drama in Early Byzantium Prof. Derek Krueger, University of North Carolina at Greenboro and author of Writing and Holiness: The Practice of Authorship in the Early Christian East
Wednesday March 26th,16.15, room 118
A Graphic Chain of Tradition: Jewish Memory, Appropriation, Edification, and Polemics in Superhero Comic Books
Dr. Martin Lund, Lund University
Tuesday MAY 20, 16.15, room 118
Visualization of the Imam Ali in Popular Prints Dr. Hege Irene Markussen
If you want more information, you can ask our coordinator Andreas Westergren.

A small though audible hooray at last, for the fact that two fellow students have shown interest in also contributing to the blog - it will be good if my dictatorship here on the blog comes to an end. ;-) More follows soon!
