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.
