Coming up: Dutch care ethicists’ exchange with Danish scholars

This June, care ethicists Carlo Leget, Alistair Niemeijer and Merel Visse of the Dutch care ethicist group visit Aalborg University and Roskilde University in Denmark to exchange thoughts on two important research approaches to understand care: phenomenology and relational etnography.

In Aalborg they will speak with Finn Hansen at Aarhus University, well-known for his Wonder Labs and practical approach to phenomenology. Finn Hansen and Carlo Leget have been collaborating for some time. Last year, Finn visited the Graduate School of the University of Humanistic Studies to speak about Practising Philosophy and Wondering. His approach to phenomenology is unique and important to the Dutch care ethicists, as it provides an epistemological framework and empircal approach to understand lived experiences of people with care.

At the Roskilde University, they will meet again with Christina Hee Pedersen, Lisbeth Frølunde and Louise Jane Phillips of the Department of Communication and Arts. Alistair Niemeijer and Merel Visse met with these scholars several times before at methodological conferences, like the International and European Conference on Qualitative Inquiry. At the time, they exchanged about a new approach they have been developing on relational etnography as a praxis for care and autoetnography in relation to humane care. Now, this June, they will dive deeper into the challenges and promises of this approach, and explore the possibilities of arts-based work like visual etnography. Please check this website again in July for an update.
