Check out this weeks’ events at The Nook, our hub for the more intimate, informal, and deeply weird conversations. These events are open to all: no registration required, unless it says otherwise. Let’s see if we can figure out this batshit crazy world together!

Want to get updates on events in the Nook? Email us at theNook-sg@tudelft.nl and we’ll sign you up.

Monday’s Headlines

Did someone try to invade Moscow again? Did the government resign? Drop by during your lunch break and discuss the news that you can’t not talk about on Monday, October 9th.

Existential Tuesdays

Why work a bullshit job? How do you rationalize suffering? Can you un-brainwash someone? What is the end goal of evolution? Is Schrodinger’s Cat a zombie? Get philosophical over lunch on Tuesday, October 10th. Existential Tuesdays are a low key moment to ask the ultimate questions together, without necessarily finding answers or solutions. For this week’s session we’ll explore the question:

What is a “real” man?

In today’s society, the definition of manliness and proper male behavior are up for discussion. Should it be about masculinity, penis length, the size of his bank account, or his own sense of self? Is a real man an intersectional feminist? Does he hunt his own food or stay at home with a baby on his back? Is whiskey optional or mandatory? (wink wink)

Check out SG’s related events this quarter on the theme: The Female Perspective

This fall at SG, we’re going to find out what the world would look like if women had the power. We’re going to erase the dominant patriarchal perspective and substitute it with an alternate reality. What would it look like if the tables were turned: would women set the standards, could men be vulnerable? Would we let go of the old ways and celebrate gender fluidity? 

This theme is part of the series For Love of the World, in which we explore alternative stories and forgotten knowledge that can (re)connect us to our world.
