The Department of Eagles was established in Tirana, Albania — the “Country of Eagles” — in 2011 as a weekly reading group bringing together students and scholars from diverse regions such as law, anthropology, computer science, and international relations. The Department of Eagles aims to create a conceptual space in which it becomes possible to think what the humanities in general and philosophy in particular may mean in an age of globalization, where thought itself remains nevertheless divided across continental rifts. The Department of Eagles has co-organized several events in Tirana, such as the exhibitions “Pyramids: Monument for Late Capitalism” and “Kukafshehti” (together with Aleanca LGBT).
