The Mushroom at the End of the World Finnish translation book launch + post-humanist terminology workshop

HIAP is happy to host two events by Tutkijaliitto at HIAP Suomenlinna on Wednesday 18 November!

3-5 pm – A workshop hosted by researcher Kaisa Kortekallio aims to tackle post-humanist terminology in Finnish. What happens when terms from another language are translated to Finnish – what kind of gaps, breaks and new connections this brings to thinking?

6-8 pm – The launch event ‘Lopun aikojen sieni’, the Finnish translation of ‘The Mushroom at the End of the World’ by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, with translator Anna Tuomikoski, anthropologist Anu Lounela and researcher Kaisa Kortekallio. The discussion will be streamed online via Facebook.

Both events are in Finnish and it’s necessary to sign up in advance! More information in the Facebook event.

In connection with the events it’s also possible to visit The Post-Fossil Show exhibition.
