Introduction to resilience thinking and analysis, Henrik Österblom and Magnus Nyström, 19 September (open to SRC students only)
This course serves as an introduction to advanced research studies at SRC. It communicates the research framework that is used by centre researchers, clarifies “ways of thinking and practicing” and “tacit knowledge” at SRC, i.e. the “softer” values that are essential for multi- and transdisciplinary advanced research at SRC (our “signatory pedagogy”). The course identifies outstanding major research challenges and research fronts in order for the PhD student to be able to understand where they can situate their research, and also how their research can contribute to developing any or several of these fronts. The course also relate the SRC “branch” of Sustainability Science to a wider historical context including fields of philosophy of science and provide practical advice on methods and approaches that will guide the PhD student in his or her research.
