There are no other requirements to participants except that all participants bring a few prepared questions about institutional ethnography. The questions should be embedded in or illustrated with examples from their own work. There may be specific concepts, or problems/challenges that you have faced, and which you wish to discuss with others. These questions form the basis for the workshop.
Please spread information about the event within your network.
The opening lecture by Karin Widerberg is open to all. The rest of the gathering is for the network's members. You can join the network by joining our mailing list.
The event is free, we pay for lunch and the evening party. Accommodation, participants must arrange and pay for themselves. The University of Oslo has an agreement with two hotels.
The event will be held in English if English-speaking participants are present. We hope to inform participants of this in advance.
