What is critical research and why is it important? An invitation to researchers in Nordic countries to participate in a workshop on 1st June 2021.
Collaborations among Nordic researchers with a critical knowledge interest are crucial and have historically proved important by providing a dynamic research environment that supports both junior and senior researchers. With the ambition to continue this tradition, we launch the network CRITPEN. As a start, we will have a day where we meet to discuss the meaning and role of critical research in the Nordic countries.
Theme of the workshop: “What is a critical perspective, and why is a critical perspective important in different research contexts?”
09.00-10.45 Introductory keynotes (Sirpa Lappalainen, Mattias Nylund, Aina Tarabini and Elisabet Öhrn).
11.00-11.45 Panel debate (Jenni Helakorpi, Lisbeth Lundahl, Berglind Ros Magnusdottir and Åse Røthing).
13.00-13.45 Discussion continues in smaller groups.
