    Alumni Spotlight: Erica Baffelli

    When asked about her time at CAS, she admits that it feels “rather bizarre” these days to think about the freedom and social life that is essential to a stay at CAS.

  • The MultiGender project members now work online.

    Why do some words have gender?

    CAS is all about being together. The Corona pandemic forces us to work differently. Now that their fellows are spread worldwide, Terje Lohndal and Marit Westergaard have moved their seminars online, but you can still read about their research.
