The Buber Society continues to operate during Corona times. To the extent that the circumstances permit, our fellows carry on with their research work and are busy writing their papers and grant-applications; our wonderful staff continues to work from home (to the level permitted by university policies); and we maintain our academic and social activities as a group, even if from a distance. One of the innovations of this time is that we now hold our weekly Kaffeestunden through videoconferencing. In this way, we continue to “see” one another and keep in touch and in solidarity. This has worked really well so far, although we certainly look forward to having cake and pastries in the Mandel Building again.
