Online Lecture Series 2021
Apocalypse now, then, when? Online Lecture Series 2021
The Centre for Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Studies at the University of Heidelberg (CAPAS) announces with great pleasure the start of a new lecture series. The CAPAS lecture series undertakes the task of exploring imaginaries and experiences of apocalypses and post-apocalypses from an interdisciplinary perspective.
With this format, the research at CAPAS is made accessible to members of Heidelberg University and the interested public. We cordially invite you to engage in our interdisciplinary discussions. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the lectures will be held digitally.
