What are the implications of different theoretical perspectives in critical research?
CRITPEN welcomes researchers in Nordic countries to a digital workshop, to meet and discuss questions such as: How do different theories guide our question setting and understanding of research problems?
About the Workshop
On the 11th of May CRITPEN will arrange a workshop on the theme: What are the implications of different theoretical perspectives in critical research? The idea is for researchers with a critical knowledge interest to meet, discuss and develop ideas concerning questions such as:
- How do different theories guide our question setting and understanding of research problems?
- What are the implications of different theories; what are we seeing/ not seeing?
- How do theoretical choices frame our thinking and analysis?
The workshop will start with two keynotes representing different theoretical approaches and end with a joint discussion. Below you will find a schedule for the workshop. We hope to see you there!
