Borders (Season I)

04 jun 2020 17:00 - 16 jul 2020 18:30

European NetIAS Lecture Series on the theme of Borders.

In order to respond proactively to the current situation and to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and in order to showcase the quality and diversity of the research conducted in its member institutes, ​the Network opens its doors to all interested in the research conducted at our Institutes and interested in timely discussions. The 25 Institutes from 17 European countries participating in the Network operate on the basis of a Europe-wide geographical distribution on common principles of freedom of research and knowledge sharing.

The series of joint weekly lectures --The European NetIAS Lectures--started in June 2020, and restarts from October 8 to December 3, 2020 from 5 to 6 p.m., featuring renowned scholars from a variety of disciplines, approaches, and thematic interests. Delivered online, participation is open to students, researchers, and anyone interested in the latest international research and new thinking on borders.
