You are here

Are you a VUB student in your third bachelor or master years? Have your read Sapiens or Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari or are you interested in the work of the Israeli historian? Would you like to be on stage with this intellectual rockstar? Yes, yes, yes? Then keep on reading!


Together with Canvas, we are looking for 21 students who want to give their opinion on a few of Harari’s propositions, ask him some thought-provoking questions and are willing to join rector Pauwels on stage to present Harari with a VUB honorary doctorate to Harari in the Lotto Arena on monday evening, 27 January. What do you have to do? Schedule two hours during the week of 6 January for a television interview by Canvas and attend the awarding ceremony prior to Harari’s lecture on Monday 27 January. Sounds great? Well, send ASAP (this week!) an e-mail to


We will provide transport on Monday 27 January, and a nice reward for each participant!
Do you want to enjoy the lecture of prof. Harari in the audience? VUB students can order tickets at a discount price.
