Please Note! – Lecture by Maud Simonet ONLINE

On Wednesday, May 18 2022, we invite you to our fourth talk of the lecture series “The Politics of Voluntariness”. The talk by Maud Simonet from the University of Paris Nanterre, however, will take place digitally only!

We are very much looking forward to Prof. Maud Simonet’s talk on “Exploitation of Volunteers? From Research Questions to Questioning Categories” and to continuing our discussions revolving around perspectives on voluntariness. However, the talk will be held exclusively via Webex. Unfortunately, Maud Simonet is unable to travel to Erfurt and so we are switching to the online format.

Your are cordially invited to participate digitally at the usual time of 6-8pm (c.t.). Just follow the link below to our digital lecture room. There is no registration necessary.
