Feminist ethics of care – geneaologies and uses from mothering to respons-ability (an adaptable reading course) (2,5 hp)

Course period: Flexible, the course is taught on demand 2022–2023, 50% study pace

Language: English

Course content:

Joan Tronto, a feminist philosopher and theorist of democracy, defined an ethic of care as any approach to personal, social, moral, and political life that starts from the reality that all human beings need and receive care and give care to others. The care relationships among humans are part of what mark us as human beings, that we always are interdependent beings. Early on, Joan Tronto and Berenice Fisher defined care widely: "On the most general level, we suggest that caring be viewed as a species activity that includes everything that we do to maintain, continue, and repair our 'world' so that we can live in it as well as possible.” STS and multispecies feminist scholars took this understanding of care to a both local and planetary level, at once. Donna Haraway, keen to not root politics in identity, purity or mothering, introduced the powerful concept of “respons-ability”. This makes care, care work and caring a reciprocal activity of attuning into also to the nonhumans that co-constitute the world, enabling all kinds of responses to the continuous crisis of living in capitalist ruins in the Anthropocene. María Puig de la Bellacasa’s 2017 book Matters of Care, following Haraway’s trajectory of multispecies care, bring together three dimensions of care – as an affective state, a material-doing and practice, and an ethico-political obligation. Architectural theorist Elke Krasny et al’s  edited volume on Radicalizing Care brings together curatorial and creative practices, hacking and design in a multidisciplinary compilation that evidence the versatility of feminist care ethics today.

In this course, we read Tronto, Bellacasa, Haraway and selected chapters from Krasny, alongside critiques of feminist ethics of care (as a virtue ethic of individualism and self-control) and two individually selected theoretical texts on the topic that suit the research of the course participants. 

Teaching and examination: The joint reading is distributed and individual readings selected before the course start. We then meet for joint zoom reading seminars on two occasions. Course participants are expected to prepare for each joint zoom webinar and to present their own individual reading and take-home message from the joint and from the individually selected readings.

The two webinar presentations, one for each seminar, form the basis for examination.

Forskningsprocess, metodologiska grunder och etiska överväganden i barn- och barndomsforskning (7,5 hp)

Kursperiod: 21 aug – 27 okt 2023
Språk: Svenska. Examinationsuppgifter kan skrivas på svenska eller engelska
Kursinnehåll: Länk till kursplan. Kursen syftar till att ge den forskarstuderande möjlighet att pröva att skriva fram tidigare forskning med utgångspunkt i eget avhandlingsprojekt. Kursen lägger en bred grund för ett vetenskapligt förhållningssätt, vetenskapliga arbetsmetoder och grundläggande steg i forskningsprocessen om barn. Kursen fokuserar på viktiga steg i forskningsprocessen, specifikt med fokus på hur tidigare forskning är grundläggande i formulering av ett forskningsproblem och forskningsfrågor, val av metod (för datainsamling och analys) och i analysarbetet. I kursen diskuteras hur man kritiskt förhåller sig till tidigare forskningsstudier, teoretiska och metodologiska val. Etiska förutsättningar och regelverk för forskning om barn presenteras och diskuteras. Tidigare forskning presenteras i form av en skriftlig redovisning och ligger till grund för kollegial granskning och diskussion kring hur tidigare forskning kan presenteras och hur den kan informera framtida avhandlingsarbetet.
Undervisnings- och examinationsformer: Kursen examineras genom aktivt deltagande i seminarier där skriftligt individuellt arbete presenteras och diskuteras.

Introduction to STS (9 credits)

Course period: fall semester 2023, week 36-42 (Tuesdays and Wednesdays in weeks 36, 37, 39 and 41, in person onsite in Linköping, essay to be handed in week 42).
Language: English
Course content: The course is an introduction to several key theorizations in the international field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). In addition to reading and discussing key texts, the course participants will also be familiarized with the criticism and debate surrounding key theoretical positions of the field. The course centers on STS-perspectives focusing on processes related to scientific knowledge production and technological change. This translates into the dominance of micro- or meso-perspectives in where the interpretations, practices and actions of various involved actors are analyzed and problematized. The course thus emphasizes theoretical perspectives and concepts that can be used to understand “science and technology in the making.”
Teaching and examination forms: The course is designed to provide ample opportunities for reflection and discussion of perspectives, theories and concepts in STS, particularly as they relate to the course participants’ own research interests. The course participants will be constantly challenged to discuss, critically examine and compare various perspectives, approaches and concepts.
The examination consists of the following components:
• Active participation in all course sessions.
• Submission of a short seminar document (1 paragraph about the literature and a few questions) before each reflection seminar, providing brief reflections on or posing questions for the seminar in question.
• Submission of a course essay in which one theme related to the theoretical perspectives addressed in the course is discussed. 
Course coordinators: Anna Storm and Sergiu Novac, sergiu.novac@liu.se 
Enrolment: The course admits a limited number of PhD students. If you’re interested in enrolling, please e-mail Sergiu Novac by May 25th with a brief (max 1 page in total) description of yourself, the topic of your PhD thesis, and your expectations of the course. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out the following week.

Ontologies, epistemologies and methodologies of interdisciplinary studies  (5.5 credits)

Course Period: weeks 2–8, 2023 (first week - 4 hours, subsequent weeks - 2 hours per week)
Language: English
Course content

The course offers a critical introduction to the history, philosophy, sociology and practice of interdisciplinary studies. Interdisciplinarity is considered in historical contexts and in relation to traditional academic disciplines. We discuss how disciplinary norms and epistemic models organize academic research, and to what extent and how are they challenged by interdisciplinary approaches. The course also addresses ontological assumptions upon which different interdisciplinary traditions rest and that they project, and examines interdisciplinarity as a particular type of cognition. We focus on interdisciplinary interpretations of truth and objectivity, address issues of communicative rationality and social studies of science and technology. The course proceeds to compare different kinds and forms of interdisciplinary research, its relational dynamics, and methodological premises. We critically analyse differences in interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, social sciences, hard and natural sciences, etc.  The course also tackles the relations between interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity, postdisciplinarity and antidisciplinarity both within and outside the Western-centric knowledge production paradigm.  Finally, we touch upon the research policy milieus for interdisciplinary studies and possible career paths for interdisciplinary researchers.

Examination: The examination consists of one individually written course paper and active participation in seminars through general discussion and presenting the draft of the future course paper at the course conference
