Summer is upon us, and after summer comes a new semester, which should obviously be welcomed by a Festlig Faglig Freday and a little glass. Therefore, The Roots would love to invite all students, staff and hangarounds to join this Festlig Faglig Fredag-Semesterstartsdrinks-combo.

Johan Ulrik Nielsen will give the talk

From Tarḫunt and Tanaro to Fjǫrgynn and Parjánya: A survey of the evidence for and against a Proto-Indo-European theonym

which is based on his Prize Paper / Master's Thesis.

Because of an inaugural lecture at the department also taking place this afternoon, we'll meet at five o'clock, and the talk will begin at a quarter past. Afterwards, the festiveness of the Friday will increase until it reaches a glass of cava in the name of the storm god and Semesterstart.

We look forward to seeing you there!
