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. For the duration of the shutdown, we will be sending you some new materials and links to relevant archived pieces for your reading pleasure. As always, during this stressful and unusual time, we will continue sharing exceptional scholarship from IAS.
