Beyond Income: Social Dimensions of Poverty and Participatory Methodologies of Investigation

when 20 June 2015 - 11 July 2015
duration 3 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS
fee NOK 3000

This course serves as a forum for learning, discussion and continuing work on themes related to the study of the social dimensions of poverty in an international perspective. We achieve this aim in two steps. First, we place priority on the theoretical underpinnings of the work looking at social dimensions of poverty in comparative perspectives. Second, we link this material to participatory visual and narrative research methodologies, both to investigate the dimensions and to disseminate findings to the broader academic and policy-making community.
