Webinar: Sociological Perspectives on the Corona Crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic made researchers and research funds within sociology operate fast and create new research projects to track the societal implications of the crisis. We have invited three researchers, who received Emergency Grants from the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen, to present their first findings and reflect on their experiences with ‘fast track’ sociology and conducting empirical research during times of crisis.
