One of the most exciting workshop events, the Doctoral Agora is back, providing the University’s community and external visitors with the opportunity to get a glimpse into research at the Doctoral School through a thematic selection. The October 25 session will be hosted by university professor Péter Haba, inviting participants to explore humans and other living beings in borderline situations, and will cover a wide variety of topics including the processing of the traumas of forced migration and loss of place in architecture, the visual representation of sex toys, and how speculative musical design can help create fictional worlds.
