Research in a Post-Truth World - Seminar with Professor Michael Hall, University of Canterbury

Seminarium

This presentation sets out to offer some thoughts on the issue of facts and their relationship to power in the (social) sciences. It serves to raise questions with respect to methodology and the nature and acceptability of knowledge as well as “competition” between different forms of knowledge. These are regarded not just as abstract philosophical ideas but as having real impacts on policy-making and research and teaching practices, as it highlights what is regarded as acceptable evidence.

A range of examples will be used to illustrate how competition between knowledge forms is implicate in research assessment exercises, publishing practices, and in the assessment of student assignments and, importantly within institutions and their design as well. Ways in which they can be responded to will also be noted. 

Michael Hall is professor in marketing at the Department of Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship at University of Canterbury, New Zealand. In 2016, he was awarded an honorary doctorate at the faculty of Social Sciences. LU. 

The seminar is hosted by the Pufendorf IAS ASG Commons and Commoning – Human Rights and Sustainability
