Jin Xue, professor in urban and regional planning at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, is organizing a one-week PhD course on ‘Critical realism in environment, development and planning studies’ on June 5 – 9, 2023 in the Oslo region of Norway. Participation on the course is free, but students will need to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. The course is taught in English.
The aim of this PhD course is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students to develop their knowledge of critical realism as a contribution to their overall meta-theoretical reflections. Apart from giving a general introduction to critical realism, the course will place particular emphasis on the following topics: interdisciplinary research, the application of critical realism in research, its methodological implications and its potential as a base for ideology critique.
Deadline for application: February 15, 2023
