Event and Becoming: the Inaugural 2021 Ereignis Conference

How does the event puncture the smooth flow of becoming? And what is it like, the event in which we become ourselves?

These are among our key questions in this first, inaugural Ereignis conference, to be held online Friday, June 11, 2021. Headlined by internationally acclaimed speakers on events and becoming, this conference seeks to merge profound and innovative thought with practical approaches to becoming. How do we arrive into our own?
