Babel’s Salon Cancelled

Some ideas seem to be nice at first sight, but do not work in practice. We are sorry to say that we received only two registrations (from students) for Babel’s Salon, not enough for organising an entire evening, let alone three evenings. We therefore decided to cancel the Babel’s Salon initiative.
