“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different” 

- Arundhati Roy, ‘The pandemic is a portal’

In a series live-streamed sit-ins during the Covid-19 pandemic, we invite a number of researchers to present one idea related to the our series theme “Disasters, Disaster Capitalism, and Beyond” in 20 minutes. After the presentation, we invite the virtual audience for questions and discussion through chat or audio.

Remember to put a beer in the fridge and join your colleagues for a semi-informal after-work @home!
