Annual DaWS Early Career Workshop 2022


On May 5 and 6, DaWS welcomes several international scholars with diverse disciplinary backgrounds for its annual early career scholars workshop. Presentations will address both classical as well as new themes in welfare studies.

The workshop seeks both to nurture intense and cross-disciplinary discussions and to be a great opportunity to build networks among welfare scholars.

The workshop will be held in the DIAS seminar room at SDU Odense campus (V24-412a-0)
