I’ll be speaking at this year’s Holberg International Memorial Prize Symposium in Bergen, Norway, on June 5.
This year, the prize of NOK 4.5 million (or EUR 570,000/USD 800,000) has been awarded to Manuel Castells for his outstanding work as the leading sociologist of the city and new information and media technologies. The prize is awarded annually for outstanding scholarly work in the fields of the arts and humanities, social sciences, law, and theology. Congratulations to Manuel!
