Dear all members of NERA network 22
We are pleased to inform you that we are in the conciliation stage of organizing the pre-conference in connection with the NERA conference in Uppsala 2019.
The pre-conference is a direct continuation of last year’s pre-conference, and this year’s focus is on methodological issues related to the overall theme:
Posthumanist transformatory methodologies in education
In itself a post-human approach implies being part of the world, embedded, entangled and always becoming. It is not research on or for the world but with worlds. As such, distinguishing the transformative capacities for change, transformation or movement, or the differences that posthuman approaches to education does, can be difficult. In this pre-conference, we wish to address the “troubles of transformation” in post-human methodologie. We want to go into dialogue around, and gather different ways of, worldling. A range of possibilities are: affirmative forms of critique, the development of new concepts, new explorative approaches, affective engagements, experiments and laboratories, diffraction apparatuses, and new thinking technologies.
The preliminary program for the pre-conference is outlined here:
