Department of Culture and Society (IKOS)

At IKOS, social sciences and the humanities gather in environments where research and education work together.

The Department of Culture and Society (IKOS) conducts education and research in various humanities, social sciences and aesthetic subjects. Our activities are often conducted in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary environments where language, culture and society are at the center.

IKOS strives to strengthen social science and humanities in society and we see collaboration between education, research and the outside world as a prerequisite for success. The department is located in both Linköping and Norrköping.

Inaugural lecture Claudia Tazreiter: The future of migration and borders

3.00 pm – 5.00 pm Room K1, Kåkenhus building, Campus Norrköping and Zoom.

What can we learn from situating migration not as a problem, as so often happens, particularly when questions of nation, resources, cultural values and contested histories and memories are at play? In this lecture Claudia Tazreiter, professor of ethnicity and migration, explores migration as complex phenomena with implications and possibilities for new social formations. The lecture is held in English and is open for the general public. Please register via email to Eva Rehnholm.
