Please let me invite you on behalf of the Englische Seminar at the RUB to a talk by Mark Fisher (Goldsmiths College, London). He is the author of Capitalist Realism (2009) and writes about music, theory and film for Frieze, The Wire and Film Quarterly among others.
Mark Fisher will be talking about the central hypotheses from Capitalist Realism and how events such as the G20 protests in 2009 and the student protests in 2010 have altered the dominant ideology of contemporary Britain.
Mark Fisher – Strategies against Capitalist Realism

Zur Begrüßung an dieser Stelle der Hinweis auf ein wenig Cuteness-Forschung:
The present study investigated the development of preference for baby schema in humans by examining the recognition of the cuteness of baby faces; two studies were conducted to examine whether childrens evaluation of cuteness differed from that of adults. Facial photographs not only of humans (Homo sapiens), but a chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), dogs (Canis familiaris) and cats (Felis sylvestris catus) at different ages were used as stimuli. The volunteers were requested to rank these photographs in order of cuteness.
