NORMATIVE THINKING ALLOWED
Date: 19 January 2007 Time: 10.00 - 17.00
Venue: Institute for Advance Studies, Meeting Room 3
NORMATIVE THINKING ALLOWED: A WORKSHOP
The aim of this workshop is to provide a space where social researchers from different disciplines and areas of research can talk about how they evaluate the practices and situations that they study, that is as good, bad, oppressive, empowering, emancipatory, ecologically unsustainable, as tangled mixes of these, etc. In so doing, the aim is to break a taboo in social science on being normative - or on being 'too normative'. It implies that values, valuations, and well- and ill-being are things we can and should reason about, rather than just private subjective beliefs or states of mind, or products of cultural construction and conditioning, for which no justification can be given.
