Online Workshop: Epistemological Issues in International Development 2021
The School of International Development at the University of East Anglia will organise a workshop on epistemological issues in international development. It takes place on 29 November 2021, from 11:20 to 15:40 (with lunch break).
This workshop targets PhD students of development. There is no registration fee.
The workshop will outline the specific epistemological issues of prominence in development studies and presents three separate sessions:
• Epistemologies and debates in social analysis
• The epistemology of natural science
• Epistemologies in economics
Experienced researchers in the respective fields lead the three sessions: Professor Cecile Jackson (social analysis), Professor Mark Zeitoun (natural science) and Professor Bereket Kebede (economics). Each will give constructive and critical accounts of strengths, weaknesses, and debates around those forms of knowledge, relevant to development studies.
Current PhD development students from any university can register for the workshop by sending an e-mail to Elizabeth Austin at <[email protected]>.
