Werewolf poster

A month into the semester the first signs of spring bring the promise of rest and recreation to the students of Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU). In light of this, the RSU International Department decided to organise a virtual game of Werewolf together with the RSU Student Union (SU) and the RSU International Student Association (ISA).

The game itself is a little bit tricky to play over Zoom, but considering that we have all spent so much time on Zoom by now, navigating cameras and microphones is starting to feel just as natural as brushing your teeth.

Beating COVID-19 Through Science

The Ministry of Education and Science and the Latvian Council of Science organised a panel discussion called Beating COVID-19 Through Science, which was streamed on the Delfi web portal. The panel covered solutions that Latvian scientists have found to help overcome COVID-19 and the socio-economic effects of the pandemic. Additionally the panel presented findings from the national research programme to lessen the effects of COVID-19 and the study on epidemiology and filogenesis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in Latvia.

Emma Kjellstadli

Emma Kjellstadli is 22 and just started her 3rd semester in Medicine at Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU). She has been politically active since high school, and was even on her local municipality council Færder municipality, close to the city of Tønsberg - for a few years on behalf of her political party. To keep her political interest alive alongside her studies Emma joined the society Feminists in Riga, and is now its President.

While keeping two meters between us in our daily lives is possible, humanities and social science scholars are struggling to keep a critical distance from the pandemic as a research object, as it unfolds right in front of their eyes. To briefly sketch out the challenges, we talk to Dace Dzenovska, RSU Research Week keynote speaker and Associate Professor in the anthropology of migration at the University of Oxford.
