War, peace, understanding – a meeting place for everyone on campus

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine affects all of us. How can research perspectives help us understand, deal with and perhaps act in relation to what is going on?

Every Wednesday at 12:15 in the Lövverket space in Studenthuset at Campus Valla, you can listen to a range of voices on the theme “war, peace, understanding”. There will be 20-minute presentations by teachers and researchers from various disciplines, and time for questions and discussions.

Time: Wednesdays 12:15 – 12:45, starting 16 March. 

Place: Lövverket, ground floor at Studenthuset, Campus Valla. 

All LiU staff and students are welcome. There is no need to register.
