Urban legends: fact or fiction?

Do you know the story about the funny taste of the garlic sauce sold by pita vendors at the Kaasmarkt? Or the one about the arm that was severed by a snack machine at the VUB? We're talking about urban legends, or ‘monkey sandwiches' as we like to call them in Dutch. Are there typical old wives' tales related to Brussels? What kind of stories are there, what is their purpose, who spreads them and what is their underlying meaning? Find out the answers to these questions during a lecture by Aurore Van de Winkel (UCL)!
