POSTPONED TO APRIL 2022, KARLSTAD UNIVERSITY, SWEDEN
The symposium is postponed until April 2022. The specific dates will be set in August, and we are also planning an on-line kick-off on August 18th in order to facilitate discussions and collaboration between researchers interested in critical policy studies. More information will be posted on this website in June.
The symposium has as its main objective to open channels of communication among researchers who have engaged with, or who plan to engage with, the WPR approach in order to bring to light the types of analyses being produced and to encourage further collaboration. This event was originally planned for June 2020, but have been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Scholars with already accepted abstracts will automatically be invited again, but there is also space for additional participants to submit an abstract before November 1, 2021.
The format of the symposium will be keynotes followed by panels, paper presentations and general discussions. There will be a particular focus on showcasing new and emerging work from junior researchers. Confirmed keynotes are Professor Emerita Carol Bacchi, University of Adelaide, Professor Susan Goodwin, University of Sydney, and Professor Elisabeth Prügl, The Graduate Institute, Geneva.
The event is being hosted by the research group Critical studies on power and politics (led by Professor Malin Rönnblom) at the Department of Political, Historical, Religious and Cultural Studies, Karlstad University. It is being co-arranged with Professor Emerita Carol Bacchi, University of Adelaide, and Professor Susan Goodwin, University of Sydney.
