VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

The Psychology of Global Crises: State Surveillance, Solidarity and Everyday Life

The conference is fully virtual
Wednesday, May 20, 2020 - 09:00 to Saturday, May 30, 2020 - 18:00

Sparked by current developments, the theme of this conference is ‘crisis’ in all its varieties. Who is speaking to the current crisis and with what advice? Which voices are heard? What can the social sciences contribute to understand crises, the current global situation and expectations for the future? How can we critically examine the concept of ‘crisis.’ Who defines a situation as a crisis? Who benefits from and who is negatively affected by crises? How do crises change local communities? How do they affect the individual agency and the relationship of citizens to one another?

In times of crisis, let us come together in the virtual world and discuss the phenomena at hand.
