Network 22: Post-approaches to Education

Attendees:

Linnea Bodén, Merete Moe, Helene Falkenberg, Tarja Karlsson Häikiö, Malou Juelskjaer, Dorthe Staunæs, Rikka Holti, Karin Gunnarsson, Mattias Nilsson Sjöberg, Bosse Bergstedt, Dorethe Bjergkilde, Camilla Nørgaard, Elin Sundström Sjödin, Emelie Moberg.

Notes from network meeting:

All agreed that the new name Post Approaches to Education works well.

Network 22 continues to be one of the bigger networks in NERA. This year included one pre-conference, 2 symposiums and 10 paper session (15 preregistered papers).

It is possible for PhD students who joined the pre-conference to get 1 ETCS credit. But a 2-4 page paper that was sent in in advance is required. A certificate can be sent to Bosse Bergstedt and he will undersign it.

The book Posthumanistisk pedagogik: Teori, undervisning och forskningspraktik (2017) was presented at one of the two symposiums. Editor of the book is Bosse Bergstedt. The book is published by Gleerups förlag and is written in Swedish.

The network could do better by via email sending out information about future disputations and career opportunities. Also Linnea Bodén has started a group on Facebook named “Post-Approaches to Education”.

Next year’s Pre-conference and/or PhD course:

Next year NERA will take part in Oslo. We had a discussion if and how we could follow up this year’s exciting pre-conference. The committee this year was Bosse Bergstedt, Helene Falkenberg, Camilla Eline Andersen and Mattias Nilsson Sjöberg. Invited lectures: Dorthe Staunæs, Hillevi Lenz Taguchi and Malou Juelskjær.

Funding for this year’s pre-conference was 20.000 NOK. Economical funds can be applied for at NERA from 1th of August at the latest.

A suggestion came up if the pre-conference could be developed into a PhD-course. This has to be discussed more in detail.

A suggestion came up if it is possible to invite an international keynote to the pre-conference. It is. No specific name/person was raised.

Do all agree to open up the pre-conference not only for PhD students but also to senior researchers? What is required for participation next year is an individual paper that should be sent in in advance – this year only 11 papers was sent in. But if this rule only applies to PhD’s is not clear and must be discussed.

Merete Moe, Helene Falkenberg and Camilla Nørgaard showed interest to be the committee for planning the pre-conference next year in Oslo. Also Mattias Nilsson Sjöberg is available. However, information about this committee should be sent out by email so that more than those attending the network meeting would have an opportunity to be in the committee.

Pre-conference 22-23 march, 2017

Program: Pre-conference 22-23 march, 2017

 The material conditions for education, teaching and learning

 The preconference will be arranged as a mixture between short lectures and workshops with senior lecturer and doctoral students in the network 22 Post-approaches to Education. The purpose of the preconference is to strengthen the posthuman research network in Scandinavia and to enable doctoral students to discuss their dissertational work with other doctoral students and senior lecturers.

The program of the preconference

Drawing on a posthuman and poststructuralist thinking the lecturers as well as the workshops will deal with different questions in relation to theoretical and methodological issues, analytic strategies, issues about data production, etc.

The short lectures will be held by 3 senior lecturers who have taken up a position on the research field of the poststructuralist/posthuman traditions in Scandinavia. The lectures will be followed up by discussions and feedback in 4 parallel workshops with 4-5 doctoral students and one senior lecturer in each group. Based on their research work each doctoral student presents a question, a wonder, a challenge, etc. which are addressing the poststructuralist/post-human traditions.

Inbjudan till symposium i Helsingfors om Posthumanistisk pedagogik

Nätverket Posthumanistic and Poststructuralist Pedagogical Research (nätverk nr 22) inbjuder för andra året i rad till ett symposium om posthumanism och pedagogik vid NERA:s kongress, denna gång i Helsingfors 9-11 mars 2016.

Posthumanistisk pedagogik – när mänskliga och icke-mänskliga subjekt kopplar samman

Symposiets syfte är att att belysa posthumanistiska perspektiv i aktuell pedagogisk forskning. En forskning som får oss att tänka annorlunda kring det som är bortom mänsklig kontroll. Det innebär att det finns en strävan efter att utveckla alternativa förståelser av subjektivitet, tid, kunskap, agens, och relationalitet bortom antropocentriska begränsningar. Vad händer när vi ser mänskliga och icke-mänskliga subjekt som samkonstituerade och i ständig intra-aktion med varandra? I pedagogiska situationer kan det t ex vara subjekt som kopplar ihop och skapar relationer med kropp, materia, teknik, djur och natur. Den posthumanistiska forskningen följer flöden och rörelser och uppmärksammar hur dessa producerar sammanflätningar av olika slag. Särskild uppmärksamhet riktas mot företeelser som det ännu-inte-sedda eller det oväntade, när kroppen talar eller när språk, materian och naturen omkullkastar vår förståelse av det vi tar för givet. Posthumanisk forskning har inte bara betydelse för vad vi studerar utan också hur vi gör det, det har direkta konsekvenser för såväl forskningspraktik som forskarsubjektivitet och etik.

Om du är intresserade att medverka i symposiet, sänd in ett kort abstract senast 28 oktober 2015 till bosse.bergstedt@soc.lu.se. En gemensam anmälan görs därefter från nätverket till NERA den 1 november.

Följande anvisningar gäller för ett symposium: A symposium session builds on a theme and is proposed and planned by a symposium organizer.The papers focus on a common theme. A symposium has a chair (often the organiser) and one or more discussants, who have read the papers in advance. Some symposia will overlap more than one session. The symposium organizer will decide how the symposium is to be organised and the time allotment for each presentation. It is recommended that at least two different countries/national perspectives must be represented in the symposium. The organizer of the symposium submits a proposal (as organiser’s text) with a plan for the symposium including: 1 The title of the symposium, 2 An abstract describing the entire symposium, 3 The names of the contributors, titles of their presentations and their abstracts

Välkomna att medverka i ett spännande symposium!
