Charles Swain, the 19th century English poet viewed the home with characteristic emotion: "Home's not merely four square walls, Though with pictures hung and gilded: Home is where affection calls, Filled with shrines the heart hath builded!" Yet, during the Covid19 crisis these "four square walls" have proved to be challenging to what we think of as intimacy, family and home. The Leibniz Campus Lecture will examine these challenges and the ways in which they connect back to larger social structures.

Host: Prof. Dr. Mathias Frisch, Professor for Theoretical Philosophy, in particular philosophy of science, Institute of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities, Leibniz University Hannover

Co-Host: Dr. Lucie White, Institute of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities, Leibniz University Hannover
