The Department of Translation Studies at the UT College of Foreign Languages and Cultures is orgnizing in collaboration with ENLIGHT partner Ghent University an international conference on „Museums as Spaces of Cultural Translation and Transfer“. The conference is taking place on 10-11 May in Tartu.
The advanced lecture course "Selected topics in the theories of gravity" is given once in several years, with the focus changing each time according to the interests of the staff and students. While last year the course focused on treating astrophysical objects like black holes and stars in different extensions of general relativity, this year the emphasis is more on understanding the logic behind constructing a theory and checking its characteristics like the number of degrees of freedom and presence or absence of various instabilities. The specialized aspect of the course is to introduce non-Riemannian geometry and some important theories based on it. We will discuss how they differ from their GR counterparts, thus touching a cutting edge of research. In the end of June there will be MaffGrav2022 workshop in Tartu, and the topics of the course are envisioned to help to prepare for and benefit from the workshop.
