Discourse, Power, Resistance Conference
30 March – 1 April 2010 University of Greenwich, UK
This conference is the 9th in the Discourse, Power, Resistance (DPR)Series. The conference will be of interest to academics, researchers, managers and policy-makers in Education and more broadly in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
DPR9 looks at what happens when trust is lost. We ask why this happens, why it matters and what can be done to recover our trust in ourselves, our colleagues, managers, policy-makers, teachers, learners and health care and social services professionals. We look at trust and distrust in institutions and communities across cultural, social and racial boundaries.
The conference also confronts the controversy between qualitative and quantitative research methods, politically fraught and epistemologically contested, threatening to undermine trust in research findings.
