Due to the pandemic of Covid-19, the Nordic Summer University Summer Session 2020 did not take place as a physical gathering, but instead took place in distant and dispersed formats of encounter, sharing and connection. The participants were invited to create a trace. Taking the advantage of the current environment, rather than collapsing under its restrictions, NSU thus opened a space for traditional and unconventional collaborations, experiments, unusual meet-ups, creative interventions and other innovative approaches. In all this, documentation, accessibility and shareability aspects were crucial.
Below you will find documentation for each trace of the 2020 Summer Symposium (click on the titles to be redirected to the respective pages).
Falak Vasa, Kat Zagaria, Yvette Mayorga, Joshua Kent, Catherine Feliz, Ruth K Burke, Kasem Kydd, KT Duffy, Ishan Chakrabarti, D Rosen
