ASKS Workshop Series

This autumn, the ASKS workshop series is back with face-to-face sessions in EC1. Workshops will be offered in both English and Swedish. Sign up for all the English workshops this semester by clicking here, and sign up for all the Swedish worskhops by clicking here.

Workshops will be limited to 30 participants. If the workshop is full, please contact us to be put on the waiting list, and we will contact you if spaces become available.

In case of very high demand for a particular workshop, we may be able to offer another session on the same theme, and those who were unable to secure a place in the first round will be given priority.
