Watch the film ‘Inside Job’

It's time to be finance geeks on a Friday night.

Inside Job, a film about how the 2008 global financial crisis went down, will be screened at Hamburgsalen, Geocentrum, on Friday at 7pm. Bring snacks/drinks if you wish.

Those of you who cannot come on Friday will need to watch the film before Monday 6th October (we recommend those who have seen it already re-watch it so it's fresh in your mind). On the 6th we will discuss the film, look into the 2008 financial crisis, and use parts of the film actively during the class. This will also provide a good basis for getting into the Guest Lecture on Wednesday 8th from economist Michael Wendshlag: "The Economic Crisis of Today".

See you Wednesday,

Lakin

Föreläsningen med Johan Redin samt Litteraturstuga nr:1

Har du frågor eller funderingar kring Johan Redins föreläsning "Geonomi: Jorden, minnet & förlusten av människan" vill vi rekommendera denna podcast med Johan och Dougald Hine, där de för en diskussion på samma ämne:

Vill även passa på att påminna om torsdagens litteraturstuga. Under eftermiddagen ska vi försöka sammanfatta de olika ingångarna till miljöhistoria som ämne, samt den mänskliga historien fram till och med den neologiska revolutionen, eller "the first transition" som Ponting kallar den. Frågorna i läsinstruktionsbladet kommer även att kompletteras med en tankemodell för kritiskt tänkande vid läsning av vetenskapliga artiklar.

Bästa hälsningar

Sofia & Alexis
