All seminars, study groups, student led classes, lectures, projects and other happenings that occured during the DAI's extraordinary itinerary through time and places are archived here, more or less chronologically, per academic year. Chrono-archive moves backward till 2003, step, by leap, by step.

SCROLL and go back in time

but note that Chrono-archive as a content-oriented archive is for ever under construction and thus always incomplete. We (with your help !) collect what has been made visible, tangible ~ what has been noted, noticed, not forgotten.
