The Aurora Societal Challenges Virtual Lecture Series & Early Career Networking Hour kicks off next week.
In these times of climate change, pandemic, forced migration and increasing economic and political alienation, crisis talk is ubiquitous. While the world’s problems are unqestionably urgent, the current discourse of emergency risks aggrevating them by privileging quick but ineffective reaction over the calm, reflexive analysis that is a necessary first step in combatting the woes besetting us.
The objective of this lecture series is to privide an antidote to impulsive disaster talk through perceptive academic analysis. Outstanding researchers within the Aurora University Alliance will give engaging online lectures during the 2021 – 2022 academic year on cutting-edge research within two broad domains, Sustainability & Climate Change and Culture: Diversity & Identity.
Each lecture will be followed by a virtual social hour for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers which will allow them to network with peers across the Aurora Alliance and start building the research teams that will deal with the challenges of the future.
Take the opportunity to meet your peers as well as renowned researchers from the Aurora partner universities. Expand your network and maybe even start new collaborations in your research area!
