As an academic institution, which fosters intellectual exchange across disciplinary boundaries and national borders, we at the IWM are experimenting with new formats to keep in touch with you during these difficult times.
We have closed our doors until it is possible to safely reopen the Institute to welcome you back in person.
Starting in March 2020 we launched a new blog on our website with contributions from current and former fellows not only sharing an account of life under the current conditions of curfew in various corners of the world where they live or research on, but also reflecting on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for democracy, sociality, solidarity, social justice, surveillance and the economy.
Furthermore, we are presenting a thematic focus each week by using our wealth of recorded audio-visual material along with articles from IWMpost and Transit. For those of you, who missed an event or publication this presents a chance to catch up. Some of you may wish to revisit a talk or a debate, or re-read a piece.
We hope to be back with an exciting events calendar soon. Until then please bear with us as we do our best to preserve the academic community built up over several decades.
