Meld je aan voor het Germaanse Talen Symposium

Een taalfamilie verschilt eigenlijk maar weinig van een familie zoals wij die kennen. Kinderen zetten zich soms af tegen hun ouders, veranderen hun taalgebruik en maken vaak in vergelijking met hun broertjes of zusjes enorm verschillende ontwikkelingen door. Maar ook al zijn de familieleden uit de Germaanse taalfamilie verschillende wegen ingeslagen, ze blijven natuurlijk wel altijd familie! En die familietrekjes herken je pas als je erop gaat letten.

Op 21 februari 2019 houden de studieverenigingen NNP, S!MP en Albion Association het Germaanse Talen Symposium. Vanuit de vakgebieden van Nederlands, Duits en Engels zullen drie sprekers het Germaans benaderen om zo een duidelijker beeld te geven van onze gemeenschappelijke deler die de talen onherroepelijk met elkaar verbindt.

Het programma ziet er als volgt uit:
> 17:15-17:45 – Prof. Dr. L.C.J. Barbiers: “Het Nederlands als Tussengermaans”

> 17:45-18:30 – Pizza in Koffiekamer Zuid (op aanmelding)

> 18:30-19:00 – Dr. J. Audring: “Er, she, het? Een Germaanse sandwich”

> 19:15-19:45 – Dr. M.H. Porck: “Oudengels is Nederlands en de Beowulf is van ons! Ideeën over Oudengels in negentiende-eeuws Nederland”

Meld je voor 14 februari aan voor het symposium via de link onderaan dit bericht.
Pizza kost €3,- voor leden en €4,- voor externen.
Als je niet mee eet is het evenement gratis, maar verzoeken we je alsnog om je even aan te melden.

That’s How We Roll

That’s How We Roll

We hope this is right up your (bowling) alley: on Thursday the 7th of February, we will put on our bowling shoes (it’s high fashion, right?) and go bowling! The costs are only €5! We will go to Bowling Restaurant Menken, which is just a 10 minutes bike ride away from Leiden Centraal. However, don’t worry if you don’t have a bike: you can also join some of our committee members who are going by public transport. We’ll meet those of you who’d like to travel together (whether that’s by bike or bus) at 19:45 at the Leiden Centraal Starbucks. Please do not forget to bring your student card, because Menken offers a student discount. In short, make sure to clear your schedule for some spare time!

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

It’s a new year, it’s a new semester. What’s the best way to catch up with your friends? Drinks of course! Come join us at Café de Keyzer on the 7th of February at 14:30 for drinks and chats. The drinks are specifically at this time for those of us who have to travel far and can never make it to the Albion drinks. And don’t worry, it’s never too early for a drink because it’s always 5 O’ clock somewhere.

Let’s Go Dancing

Let’s Go Dancing

Each year, the student association V.S.L. Catena hosts an open week. As we found out, a lot of our members are interested in attending this week of parties and cheap cocktails. That’s why, on the 6th of February, you can join us while we dance the night away! Try to come early, because experience has taught us that it can be hard to get in if you’re late.

Apply for the Career Day Committee!

Apply for the Career Day Committee!

“You study English? What job are you going to do then?” Everyone studying English Language and Culture has surely gotten this question at least once in their life. As a study association, we are here to hopefully arm you with some possible answers, because there are in fact many career possibilities with your English degree! As you may know, Albion organises a Career Day every year. However, this year, in line with the theme of this year’s ‘444-viering’ Humanities Matter, Albion wants to go a little bigger. That’s why we’re creating a Career Day Committee! Do you want to help make this day possible and polish up your resume? The committee will meet several times to brainstorm on possible speakers, workshops and advertising and you are hopefully present at the career event itself to help out. Are you interested? Send an e-mail to albionesque@gmail.com or shoot a Whatsapp message to our chair Bart via 06-42328136

The new year has come around! For some of us that means a time of change and new beginnings. Others claim that time is a social construct and continue on their existentialistic voyage. Either way, on the 15th of January, we are celebrating the socially accepted birthday of the earth in good old North End: the perfect time to catch up with your classmates and fellow students! “Is this a Monthly Drinks in disguise?”, you might ask. To that we can only say: yes, yes it is. But now it has a title! With a pun! You cannot possibly resist that right?

Don’t Forget to Buy Your Books!

how: go to https://www.studystore.nl/, select ‘studievereniging’ and find Albion. The rest speaks for itself! (Any changes in prescribed study materials are at your own risk)
Albion to The Rescue

Albion to The Rescue

Stressed about your resits? Don’t worry, we got you fam. Albion has now set up its own tutoring army for tutoring sessions! If you are not feeling confident about Linguistics, Philology or Literature, you can contact us through acq.albion@gmail.com and let us know what you need help with and when you would like to receive this help; then we will set you up with a tutor. Our tutoring sessions are mainly aimed at the resits, so hopefully none of you will need it. The hourly rate will be €10,- for our members and €15,- for non-members. That’s a steal for a good grade.
