Webinar series on social resilience
This webinar series is the result of a collaboration between the Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC) and the Social Resilience Theme launched by the Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University.
With this webinar series, we welcome various audiences to participate in examining social resilience in crisis times as shaped in various contexts. We wish to promote the development of critical scholarship and establish an interdisciplinary network of scholars interested in pursuing research on social resilience in crisis times.
During four webinars in spring 2022 Swedish and international scholars will discuss crisis and social resilience in relation to the topics of Climate, Gender, Work and Communication.
