CEC Fellows concept seminar on Power

An important barrier to interdisciplinary work is the difficulty to communicate across disciplinary boundaries. The seminar series on concepts, of which the seminar on Power is the seventh, is intended to create a platform for the discussions needed to overcome such barriers.

What are they talking about? Power as research concept

Register before 22nd of September. The link to the meeting will be sent out to all registered participants. 
Registration link at


We will have interdisciplinary presentations to straighten out the concept of Power as a research perspective.

The seminar on Power will consist of five short presentations from different research fields and present different ways in which it is understood. The presentations, taking Power as point of departure, will illustrate how the concept can be used in different fields. There will be ample room for questions and discussion, hopefully generating new and interesting research ideas.

The meeting will be broadcasted via Zoom and the link to the seminar will be sent out to all registred participants.

About the seminars

CEC Fellows invites members to four seminars on different concepts during 2020. The invited presenting researchers bring out a basic concept, central for their research, which can be difficult to grasp for researchers in other disciplines. The purpose with the seminars is to meet new people, learn new things and to create an understanding of how to make interesting interdisciplinary research projects that are of interest to everyone involved.
