Launch of European NetIAS Lecture Series

The Zukunftskolleg as part of the European Network of Institutes for Advanced Studies (NetIAS) announces the launch of its European NetIAS Lectures Series. "Borders" defines the overarching theme for the series in summer 2020.

The aim of the lecture series is to respond proactively to the current situation as well as to the restrictions imposed by the corona pandemic, and in order to showcase the quality and diversity of the research conducted in the NetIAS member institutes. NetIAS opens its doors not only to all interested in the research conducted at its institutes but also to all 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.

Starting from 4 June 2020, NetIAS will initiate a series of joint weekly online seminars and lectures called The European NetIAS Lectures delivered by renowned scholar. Participation is open to students, researchers, and anyone interested in the latest international research and new thinking on borders. Borders understood as real and symbolic, political and social, thereby embracing a broad variety of perspectives and approaches.

Under the auspices of the Network of European Institutes of Advanced Studies, the first series of European talks is organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies of the University of Bologna.

Starting with the online lecture from ISA UniBo on 4 June 2020 at 4pm, online lectures from the IAS of Paris, Helsinki, Aarhus, Delmenhorst, Budapest and Konstanz will fill in the weekly summer programme until 16 July.
Lectures will be open to all interested participants, will be held online and can be accessed via open link: European Netias lecture on ZOOM.
