Course description:
Our understandings of and practices within research are constantly
changing and developing. The conditions for necessary and relevant
research transformations are not the least an impact of feminist
research efforts. But to go from words to practice in inter/trans/post
disciplinary research is a challenge for all involved. The objective of
this course is to come to grips with the more fundamental prerequisites
for inter- and transdisciplinary research and development. The course is
a contribution to the research transforming work where our perception of
research concerns how to move from ambitions and dreams to new practices
in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary / postnormal research.
The course will include three kinds of sessions: 1)
lecture-discussion-sessions,2) group sessions with presentations
of students' papers, where students are given the opportunity to present
their doctoral research and receive comments from teachers and
co-participants, 3) Thematic group discussions.
