This week there is another interesting evening organized by the board of the Science Café. This time it is about North Korea. Are you not yet familiar with the Science Café and what they organize? The café can be found in the center of Tilburg. Regularly there are interesting scientists who like to tell more about their passion and work in an informal setting. Interaction with the public is very important. Visitors can ask all the questions they have. The scientists can answer them or enter into a discussion. This makes it possible for everyone to gain new scientific insights on a variety of subjects. Besides the seminar, there is also food, drinks, and live music.
The aim of these evenings is to create a platform for scientists and anyone interested in science. In addition, the board and committees of the Science Café want to increase the interest in science in Tilburg.
This week the subject is North Korea. North Korea is one of the most closed countries in the world. Therefore this country remains for many a mystery with many questions. Thanks to a digital data leak, Leiden researchers have been able to get answers to a number of questions. What is daily life like in this country? How scared should we be of the threats the country is regularly looking for? These and other questions will be discussed this evening during the first Science Café of 2020. Remco Breuker will be the guest speaker of this evening. He is a Professor of Korean Studies at the University of Leiden. Mr. Breuker specializes in the medieval history of Korea and Northeast Asia and in contemporary North Korean affairs. He is the only expert in this field in the Netherlands. He is therefore pre-eminently the best person who can tell more about this mysterious country.
In addition to the informative part, the evening will be concluded with music by the Trio Zoots and Ward Deckers.
