Dear all,

We would like to warmly thank you, dear reviewers, chairs, speakers and audience members for making the conference into what we hoped it could be.
In the coming period, we will release recordings of events after we’ve obtained explicit permission from speakers involved.

For now, the keynotes of prof. Engin Isin, prof. Larissa Hjorth and prof. Nicholas de Genova are available, see the tab ‘recordings’.

Renée van den Kerkhof has visualized the following plenary moments as another modality of translating discussions we’ve had so far.

On 21 April, we opened the day in a small circle, with a PhD workshop facilitated by Nishant Shah and Saskia Witteborn, organized by Melis Mevsimler and Philipp Seufferling
