How can we enlist the literary image to move readers to act in the world, and how may a philosophical life serve as a theatre in which ideas are enacted? These are key questions for our second Ereignis conference, to be held on-site in Gdynia, Poland, and online on Saturday, June 11, and online-only on June 12, 2022.

Hosted by Ereignis Center for Philosophy and the Arts, and headlined by internationally acclaimed speakers on literary and political philosophy, this conference seeks to show a wide array of philosophical, literary, and social junctures where Kierkegaard’s philosophy meet with contemporary concerns.

The conference will be held on-site, at Hotel Antares in Gdynia, Poland, and on-line, on the Zoom videoconferencing platform, on June 11 and 12, 2022. Registration will be required through
