In the Twisted Transfer podcast series (TwiTraPod), leading scholars present different approaches, methods and facets of research on corruption throughout history. Stay tuned and be informed here and on social media as soon as a new episode is released.
The first video of our series deals with the the research project "'Twisted Transfers': Discursive Constructions of Corruption in Ancient Greece and Rome". What are the project's goals? And what are the differences between gifts and twisted gifts? These and many other questions will be answered in this short introduction.
Due to the Corona pandemic, the second project workshop had to take place online. Here you can find the evening lecture by Prof Kroeze (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) as a video.
