Speaker information

Eric Jarosinski, Editor, @NeinQuarterly, of the many academics who have turned to social media in recent years, Eric Jarosinski has quickly become one of the most visible. An expert on modern German literature, culture, and critical theory, he recently left academia to devote himself to his post as founding editor (and sole author) of @NeinQuarterly, which has rapidly gained a broad and diverse international audience currently numbering over 100,000 followers on Twitter in more than 125 countries.

Join us for a talk and conversation with Eric Jarosinski, editor of @NeinQuarterly, the internet's leading "Compendium of Utopian Negation", on what's so funny about peace, love, despair, critical theory, German grammar, and other assorted spectres haunting Europe.

In cooperation with the LSE.
