Including Diversity in Research - 2nd edition






After the success of the first edition of the series of seminars “Including Diversity in Research”, the PhD Course in Human Sciences at the University of Verona together with the INVITE project and the research centres PoliTeSse and CRED organizes a second edition for the present academic year. Though meant for the PhD students at the University of Verona, the seminars are open to all who are interested and will take place on Zoom. The subject of how diversities can be included in research will be tackled from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. In the field of philosophy, for instance, the need to develop theories that are capable to account for the many societal differences of today is all the more urgent at a time when the philosophical canon is being challenged on many fronts. But diversity informs the theoretical and methodological questions of other disciplines too. Psychology and pedagogy are being increasingly confronted with such contexts as schools and workplaces that are highly differentiated along the lines of gender, class, race, sexual orientation, ability, or else. History and literature share similar concerns when they aim at investigating past (and present) forms of colonialism, or when they are faced with the literary production from the “global South”. Political and social sciences, on the other hand, are but two other examples of the long-lasting disciplinary struggle against discriminations and inequalities. The series comprises the following seminars:
