Carnival on Wednesday May 9: Sparkling & presentations

Dear All,

A few lines on the situation of the Social Science Carnival plans after the meeting of
March 26. I am writing this is English so that at least some of the material for planning will be understandable for our international students and staff. One of the aims of the carnival is, indeed, to involve our foreign students, teachers and researchers more in the life of our faculty. More generally, to learn more about each other, build a stronger community and show our faces to the world.

The carnival will take place on Wednesday, May 9, starting at 2pm and continuing until
midnight at the premises of the faculty, Unioninkatu 37, both inside and in the
courtyard. Kannunvalajat will organize activities at the informal student bar Kuppala.
The Kruununhaka Residents? Association will also be organizing activities in the Carnival.

There is still time to get involved in the event. See list of contacts at the end of this
message. Also, feel free to pass the word to friends and collaborators of our faculty,
both inside and outside the university.

There will be a bazaar area in the yard where students and staff will together build own
small areas which tell about what they do in different disciplines and areas or the
faculty. Karaoke room will open at 5pm. There will be competition for the prestigious title of Dean of Tango (Tangodekaani). If interested in participating, send me (Teivo) a note.

Madventures will be present. Riku Rantala, the world-famous travel TV host with a
take-no-prisoners attitude, will be answering our questions about politics of cultural
encounters. He may also tell us how to misbehave in crazy parties. This discussion
starting at 4pm will be mostly held in English. See more on Madventures here:
