In discussion at Det Akademiske Kvarter, 21st October, 21.30

The students of Bergen want to talk about dystopia and the current fascination with apocalypse. Why it is such a popular theme in movies and books, how has our vision on the end of the world changed over time, and what will we if an apocalypse now actually occurs?

I’m so excited to meet them and discuss the religious and cultural manifestations of end-time thinking, and the enduring grip that the end of the world exerts on our imagination.
