SCAS Kicks Off the New Semester

Earlier this week, SCAS Fellows-in residence and staff joined together at Friibergh Herrgård for an
intense day of research presentations, discussions, and conversations. Following short introductions
to ongoing research projects, a longer session was dedicated to discuss the emotional, affective
dimensions of research and how these dimensions are entangled with academic creativity, collegiality,
and productivity.
