Zizek (Oct 23):

If I were not going to be out of the country, I would definitely attend the lecture on Tuesday Oct 23rd by Slavoj Zizek on "The Two Faces of Humanitarianism" at the Birkbeck Institute for Humanities.  Zizek is the rock star / stand-up comic of contemporary theory, a brilliant and entertaining lecturer.  This event is free and open to the public, Oct 23rd from 2PM to 5PM in Room B34 of the Birkbeck Main Building on Malet Street.  For info, go to
