The Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies
Practice, Process and Issues of Scale in Global Challenges (13-16 July, 2020)
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 Workshop takes place from Monday 13 July to Thursday 16 July on the University of Warwick campus, Coventry, UK. The School is programmatically multi-disciplinary and open to a variety of approaches and sensitivities. It is organised by Warwick’s Practice, Process, and Institutions (PPI) Research Programme in collaboration with the International Symposium Series on Process Organization Studies (PROS).
The variable 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? In the summer school, we will advance these discussions in two ways: We will (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.
This year the school is programmatically aimed at advanced PhDs students and early career scholars who already have substantial experience with process and practice approaches in their research.
