Stockholm Academic Forum
proudly invites you to join the 3rd edition of
Stockholm Explorative Talks
postponed due to Corona restrictions to
18 May 2021
Stockholm Explorative Talks is a forum with an aim to move beyond the habitual patterns and methods of academic inquiry and discourse. This year’s appointed curator, Gustav Borgefalk, will lead a discussion on the theme, ‘Challenges’ which tries to locate new insights by pushing disciplinary borders.
A number of carefully selected scholars from different disciplines representing 17 of the universities in Stockholm – The Team – will be pushed to challenge themselves and each other to propose ideas and examine problems in a creative way.
In an attempt to make the discussion freewheeling and spontaneous, that is all the information we have shared with the scholars! We have also made sure that they meet each other for the first time on stage, so they come totally unrehearsed!
The Team comprises scholars who are carefully picked from different disciplines and various backgrounds. Together they are a diverse group of people, representing 17 universities of Stockholm. The Team members have been selected because of their ability to be creative, open-minded, and courageous!
