Social and Professional Practices in Praxeologic Perspective

PhD and research seminar in health science and social science

The seminar is organized in collaboration between the Department for Global Public Care and Primary Care, University of Bergen, The Norwegian Research Council/Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, and Programme Franco-Norvégien in Paris (PFN). The seminar will take place at PFNs premises in Paris.

The seminar will offer presentations and discussions of a broad spectre of praxeologic research, with special emphasis on projects performed within the framework or inspired by Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of social practices. The seminar will be interdisciplinary oriented, and so of high relevance to scholars in several disciplines, such as health science, social science and educational studies.

The seminar is open to researchers and PhD students working within this spectre.

Presentations will be given by researchers from France, Romania, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. There will also be students’ presentations, and students are strongly called upon to sign up for a presentation. English will be the seminar’s main language.

PhD students will receive a certificate of participation after the seminar.

The seminar is free, and includes all meals except breakfast. However, participants will have to pay their own expenses regarding flight and hotel.

The expenses in France will at first hand be paid by Programme Franco-Norvégien in Paris. After the seminar participants will receive an invoice (“faktura”) from the university of Bergen regarding expenses and pay directly to the university of Bergen.

Expected expenses will be 100 - 150 euro per day.


All days: Room 640, on the 6th floor. (Left lift and find room (“salle”) 640 will be on your right hand.)
