What is it like to be an international researcher in Denmark with a limited social network during the Covid-19 pandemic? At a seminar held by the Faculty of Arts’ Committee for Equality and Diversity in December, Postdoc Petra Hermankova and PhD Fellow Edwin Ambani Ameso addressed that question. In this article, they describe the difficulties of settling in a new country via Zoom, having no proper desk to work at, and the fear of failing when you cannot afford to.
