More about the Event:
Immediate responses to the COVID-19 crisis have understandably tended to focus on funding research that can fight the virus. At the same time, our world and ways of living have changed suddenly and radically, and there is a widespread sense that we cannot return to the old “normal”. Panellists will discuss why it remains important to take seriously the perspectives coming from Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences research in times of crisis, and how we can work to ensure real collaboration between these and other scientific approaches in understanding the crisis and preparing for the post-crisis world.
Professor Jane Ohlmeyer, Principal Investigator of the SHAPE-ID project, Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub and Chair of the Irish Research Council, will chair the discussion.
