About the event
Let’s move beyond the usual patterns and methods of academic inquiry and discourse! Stockholm Explorative Talks On-stage is an event that brings together scholars from different disciplines, representing all the 18 universities of Stockholm.
The 18 scholars – who we call The Explorers – will engage each other in an interaction that will see them exchange interdisciplinary perspectives on present issues confronting the planet. This year’s curators, Gustav Borgefalk and Elisabeth Ericson, will steer an exploration of the theme, ‘Challenges’, which will try to locate new intersectional ideas and insights in the conversations happening on stage. To make the discussion freewheeling and encourage spontaneous ideas, The Explorers come totally unrehearsed and meet each other for the first time on stage!

This year’s edition of Stockholm Explorative Talks will be live-streamed. The event is divided into two separate sessions, 9.30–11.45 and 13.30–15.45. We will try to accommodate a limited number of attendees at the venue. This will be based on The Public Health Agency’s recommendations at the time, and the availability of seats.
