We would like to invite you to the Week of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana in the bookstore Konzorcij locatedat Slovenska cesta 29 in Ljubljana, from Monday to Friday, 21–25 September 2015, where we are holding an exhibition and sale of books from the Academic Publishing Division of the Faculty of Arts.

The main event titled: Humanistika in družboslovje danes – pretežno škodljiva (Humanities and Social Studies Mostly Harmful), with a discussion at the 10th anniversary event of the ARS & HUMANITAS magazine, will take place on Thursday, 24 September 2015 at 18:00.

How far does the voice of humanities and social sciences reach today? Whom does it address? To whom or what does it serve? Is it a loud voice in the desert or not even that anymore? These questions will be answered by renowned Slovene experts prof. dr. Milica Antić Gaber, assist. prof. dr. Maja Šabec and prof. dr. Marko Uršič. The discussion will be hosted by the manager of the Academic Publishing Division of the Faculty of Arts dr. Matevž Rudolf. The event will be accompanied by a cultural programme featuring the Oktet Filozofske Fakultete (The Faculty of Arts Octet).
