Thinkshops

objectives and Timetable

Objectives

Thinkshops are events aiming at the collective reflections on theories making a substantial contribution to the progress of social thought. Theories discussed on thinkshops may come from any social science discipline. Thinkshops discuss only one theory and do this one full day, fueled by comments about these theories coming from the thinkshop participants. Theories discussed on thinkshops will be distributed to the interested people 2 months before the event to provide time to read. People interested in joining a thinkshop about a particular theory are invited to submit comments about the discussed theory. The comments from the invited participants joining the thinkshops will be circulated among all participants 2 weeks before the events. Thinkshops are carried out electronically in order to avoid any financial barriers for participating.
