Guest lecture: Imprinting social relations upon abstract spaces: theorizing process, positioning, and power.
The research group Space and Time in Education invites Nicholas Hardy, Ph.D., Associate professor in Sociology at the University of New Brunswick (Canada), to Tromsø to give a guest lecture on social relations and space/place.
The title of the lecture is Imprinting social relations upon abstract spaces: theorizing process, positioning, and power.
Nicholas Hardy works with different topics within social theory, among others Marxist and post-Marxist theories, Critical Realism, as well as some of Michel Foucaults central concepts.
Furthermore, Hardy has worked on materiality as an aspect of social relations, based on a Critical Realist metatheoretical framework.
After the lecture, there will be time for questions/comments. The lecture will be streamed, and the recording will be available online until the end of the semester.
