While I hope vaccination will change something in the next few months, only virtual lectures are currently possible. Last semester, I gave virtual lectures “at” various institutions in the US and abroad, including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, the University of Virginia, Columbia and others. If nothing else, I feel a lot more comfortable talking about Zoom and other similar systems than before!
Below is my list of online lectures for the spring semester. I am open to further events. If you would like to invite me to give a “virtual” lecture on one of my subject areas (described in more detail on my website here) at your own university, think of thank you or another similar organization, do not hesitate to contact me.
Unless otherwise stated, they are open to the public, not just for students and teachers of the respective institution. All times are US East Time (again unless otherwise noted).
Many of these events are about my recently published book Free to Move: Foot vote, migration and political freedom. But I am also happy to talk about other topics within my specialist knowledge. The final and most recent addition could be the second impeachment of Donald Trump (my writings on the matter were cited in the impeachment report of the House Judiciary Committee).
I will update this post regularly with new talks and additional information on existing ones.
