Highlights of the event:

Angela Saini’s talk. Angela Saini is a British journalist whose highly-regarded books and broadcasts on important issues around representation and discrimination in science and society have received widespread praise. She will speak on “Racism in science and society”. This is a topic that Angela researched extensively for her book Superior: The Return of Race Science.

Round-table: How to work against harassment – A discussion from a Nordic perspective. There will be reports on harassment reporting practices in academia from all the Nordic countries, and a round table discussion. Jóhanna Ella Jónsdóttir will be be the speaker for Iceland. Professor Helen Dannetun from Linköping University will moderate the discussion on „How to work against harassment – A discussion from a Nordic perspective“.
