Freelance Angler Writers Wanted!

Freelance Angler Writers Wanted!

After having released a festive second issue over the winter, the Angler team is already gearing up for issue number three! This time, it is all about LGBTQ+ and inclusion. You’re invited to write a short story of around a 1000 words and send it to them, so that they can publish their favourite story in the upcoming issue! It would be nice if the theme is incorporated in some way, but they do accept short stories that do not have elements of LGBTQ+ and/or inclusion in them. Feeling inspired? Send your stories to anglereditor@gmail.com before the 24th of March, and you might see yours in print!

That’s right, a good old (bad) movie night! On the 7th of March we’ll get together in Lipsius 2.27 to revive some of our childhood memories (or traumas, whatever suits you) by having a Shrek marathon. We’ll watch Shrek 2 and 3 (which are easy to follow if you haven’t seen the first film) to forget about all the homework and deadlines for a while! Snacks and drinks will be provided but, of course, you’re always welcome to bring some snacks of your own!

Meld je aan voor het Germaanse Talen Symposium

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 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.
> when: Wednesday February 6th, 21:00
