CEC Fellows concept seminar on Resilience
An important barrier to interdisciplinary work is the difficulty to communicate across disciplinary boundaries. The seminar series on concepts, of which the seminar on Resilience is the fifth, is intended to create a platform for the discussions needed to overcome such barriers.
What are they talking about? Resilience as research concept
Register here before 24 February.
We will have interdisciplinary presentations to straighten out the concept of Resilience as a research perspective.
The seminar on Resilience will consist of four short presentations from different research fields and present different ways in which it is understood. The presentations, taking Resilience as point of departure, will illustrate how the concept can be used in different fields. There will be ample room for questions and discussion, hopefully generating new and interesting research ideas.
Resilience: a philosophical and historical overview Henrik Thorén (HELSUS/Practical philosophy, University of Helsinki)
Biodiversity effects on ecosystem stability and potential covariation among variability, resistance, and resilience Mikael Pontarp (Biology)
Resilience to economic shrinking: a new perspective on economic development Martin Andersson (EKH)
Critical caution and pragmatic thinking when applying resilience to society Per Becker (Risk Management and Societal Safety)
Fika & Beehive workshop
Closing words & end
About the seminars
CEC Fellows invites members to four seminars on different concepts during 2020. The invited presenting researchers bring out a basic concept, central for their research, which can be difficult to grasp for researchers in other disciplines. The purpose with the seminars is to meet new people, learn new things and to create an understanding of how to make interesting interdisciplinary research projects that are of interest to everyone involved.
If you have suggestions for concepts to discuss, please let us know!
