The Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies
Practice, Process and Issues of Scale in Global Challenges
13-16 July, 2020
University of Warwick, Coventry
Following on from our highly successful Summer Schools in the last seven years, we are pleased to announce the 2020 Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies.
The theme of this year's summer school focuses on the issue of Scale in Global Challenges. An increasing number of scholars is interested in studying global challenges, such as climate change, poverty, health technologies, policy making, etc. Capturing such large-scale phenomena can be a challenge for practice and process scholar: Should we take a micro or macro lens? Where should we look? How do we connect small scale and large-scale phenomena? How about local actions and global actions? Prof Neil Pollock and Dr Natalie Papanastasiou will join us at the summer school, in order to advance these discussions in two ways: (1) rethink the methods we use to study phenomena of societal importance, and (2) shift from scale as a category of analysis to scale as a category of practice.
We are pleased to offer the 2020 Warwick Practice Fellowship, an award covering summer school fees for a participant who is affiliated with an institution based outside of Europe, North America, Australasia or East Asia, or who is resident there. The fellowship is intended to support scholars who document practices indigenous to non-traditional setting.
