RESILIENT’s PhD students will be attending a seminar on Situatedness at Oslo Met University on 2nd September during their visit to Norway.
About the Seminar
Many researchers, especially in professional disciplines, have a professional or personal experience from their field of study. This poses a number of challenges for the researcher. How should one relate to one’s own experiences from the field one is researching? How can one make use of these experiences in research and at the same time avoid biases? The seminar will help the resilient students reflect on how they situate themselves in their respective projects. These are some of the topics covered in this seminar for PhD-students where we have invited Cecilie Basberg Neumann to give an introduction about situatedness in research.
