Webinar 1: Scoping Critical Crisis Studies

A Webinar Roundtable Panel Discussion

This webinar is part of a series of webinars organised by the SCSC with scholars from around the world. The themes of the webinars will be centered around the topic of the polarities of crisis in the global world, where crisis is simultaneously understood as an area of contestation and control. The prospective themes include “health and crisis”, “climate and crisis”, “corruption and crisis”, “universities and crisis”, gender and crisis”, and others.

This rescheduled opening webinar on 25 February 2021, 11:15-13 (CET) to our series called the ‘Polarities of Crisis’ scopes the subject with a panel of three experts. Presenting short prepared responses to three questions, the panelists will outline their understanding of the concept of crisis, the field of crisis studies, and the big research challenges it poses. This will be followed by an open session for online participants to ask questions of the panelists.

Three panelists:

  • Professor Helle Rydstrom, Department of Gender Studies, Lund University, Sweden
  • Professor Janet Roitman, Platform Economies Research Group, the New School, New York, USA 
  • Professor Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Professor Roger Zetter, Emeritus Professor of Refugee Studies, University of Oxford, will chair and mediate the roundtable.
