Time travel 101

By Maarten van Sluijs - Theme - 4 October 2023

As much as we try to do things right, making mistakes is inevitable in life, and while we try not to, it is hard to live without regrets. So, what if you could go back in time and stop yourself from doing that one stupid thing, or maybe more interestingly, do things you otherwise wouldn’t have. Time travel is a concept that while probably impossible, has enamored mankind for millennia. In our modern-day culture, it is quite a common appearance in the media. Of course, movies like “Back to the Future” spring to mind, but also in music like “Tijdmachine” by Dio, and books like the “Harry Potter” series. To help my fellow Intermaatjes I’ve decided to take a deep dive into the concept of time travel and share with you some of my results, so that hopefully in the future you might come back and live regret free. So welcome all, class of 2023, to Time Travel 101.

By Jasmijn Brouwer - Theme - 19 September 2023

To end the success of our last semester's theme 'Of the map', Intermania went to Antwerp.

This museum had an exhibition called 'A la carte', which fits the 'of the map' theme perfectly. This article is based on that exhibition and focuses on the future of food. Will we go back to the old ways or innovate to a new normal? Let's include this semester's theme as well and go 'back to the future'!
