Carol Cohn's inaugural lecture Why We Need a Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and a Sustainable Planet is open to the public.
The purpose of the Swedish Research Council's grants to visiting professors is to give universities the opportunity to develop an area by recruiting an internationally leading professor for a short period.
