[16 Mar 2016] Politicians and researchers often see compact cities as a solution to many environmental problems. But what exactly needs to be more compact? There is no clear answer to this question.

[7 Jan 2016] The growing market for storage rental, coffee tables loaded with chips and candy on Fridays, and the never-ceasing stream of news. What do these three phenomena have in common? They are all signs of overflow. A researcher since 1970, since 1996 at the Gothenburg Research Institute, Professor Czarniawska has studied management and organization in a variety of contexts. The present research program concerns the ways overflows are managed. In this interview she talks about overloaded bookshelves, the accelerated pace of news production and other kinds of overflows. And about robots.
