Teatime at Home

During the Covid-19 shutdown, scholars continue pursuing their research. Seminars and conversations are ongoing in the Schools and collaborations among scholars continue, as do virtual lunches and afternoon teas. While in a very different format, the work of the Institute continues in the same spirit. Teatime at Home is a social distancing email newsletter featuring new interviews with scholars, curated archival materials, and concert recordings presented by Artist-in-Residence David Lang.

These are the original interviews from the series, conducted by Joanne Lipman, IAS Distinguished Journalism Fellow. Click here to view the full campaign archive.
