Critical Doctoral Education?

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review


Critical doctoral education? Crossing boundaries between different types of knowledge, different formal positions and institutional settings, and between political action and analytical reflection.

The amount of graduating doctoral students have grown significantly over the last decades. PhD’s are increasingly being employed in many types of jobs in various sectors. For many universities doctoral education is an important strategic investment and a way of both recruiting talented researchers and of engaging with external partners in private and public organisations.
Doctoral education is organised differently at universities, regulated by national laws and international standards. Also, whether and how doctoral education is practiced in line with the universities’ pedagogical traditions for bachelor- and master education varies. For universities like the CEA partners that “focus upon student-centered learning, critical thinking, interdisciplinary teaching and research, and social engagement” it is relevant to reflect on how these traditions and ambitions are met in doctoral education.

AndetThe purpose of the conference is to explore contemporary issues around boundary crossing, as they relate to universities and learning, broadly conceived.<br/><br/>​This conference is dedicated to the memory of our colleague Professor L.H.M. “Lily” Ling, a founding member of the Critical Edge Alliance, who tragically passed away last year. The conference is designed in the spirit of Ling’s Silk Road Research Initiative, a research collective that pursued the re-imagination of world politics.<br/><br/>As part of that work, students and faculty from The New School (New York, NY) organized in 2013 around a shared vision: to transform the foundation that underpins today’s international system by thinking creatively about world politics.
