Summer term: ‘Borders’

The European Network of Institute for Advanced Studies (NetIAS) announces the launch of its new European lecture series – The European NetIAS Lectures: ‘Borders’ defines the overarching theme for the series in summer 2020.

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.

Starting from June 4 2020, NetIAS will initiate a series of joint weekly online seminars and lectures called The European NetIAS Lectures delivered by renowned scholars. 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 on-line lecture from ISA UniBo on June 4 2020 at 4pm, on-line lectures from the IAS of Paris, Helsinki, Aarhus, Delmenhorst, Budapest and Konstanz will fill in the weekly summer programme until July 16.

Lectures will be open to all interested participants, will be held online and can be accessed via open link: European Netias lecture on ZOOM.
