Occupational Science Scholar in Residence von November 2012-Februar 2013 Neuseeland e-mail


28.11.2012

Von November 2012 bis Februar 2013 ist Clare Hocking, Professorin an der Auckland University of Technology, Neuseeland, Gastwissenschafterin am ifz. Wir freuen uns sehr über diesen Besuch, ist Clare Hockings doch eine weltweit führende Wissenschafterin im Bereich Occupational Science. Als Herausgeberin des „Journal of Occupational Science“ seit mehr als zehn Jahren ist sie in ihrer Forschungsarbeit spezialisiert auf Themen wie Partizipation, Soziale Inklusion und Betätigungsgerechtigkeit im Kontext der Ergotherapie. Sie ist Mit-Herausgeberin des kürzlich erschienen Buches „Occupational Science: Society, Inclusion, Participation“. Vor allem am Beginn ihrer akademischen Karriere hat sich Clare Hocking mit der Verwendung von Gegenständen und Objekten beschäftigt, die Menschen selber herstellen, sammeln und benutzen. Es hat sich gezeigt, dass die Bedeutung von Gegenständen einerseits auf ihren praktischen Nutzen zurückgeführt wird, andererseits aber auch indiviudelle, soziale und kulturelle Werte und Wichtigkeiten wiedergeben.

SolvorNatural Disasters and Resilient Communities
What is the connection between community resilience and disasters? Resilience can be understood both in terms of risk reduction and response to crisis. Resilience can be learned and developed. There is therefore hope for every community, and aid organisations can take the role as teacher or facilitator.

Pedagogy, Theology, English Scholar in Residence July-September 2010 Norway e-mail

Solvor Lauritzen is a PhD student at the University of York, England. Her field of interest is education in emergencies and post-crisis reconstruction. All individuals have the right to quality education. This right is articulated in many international conventions and documents, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). Despite this, ensuring quality has not been a priority in emergency education.

Solvor’s research focuses therefore on the concept of quality, and fieldwork will be carried out in UNICEF run primary schools in refugee camps in Kenya in order to search for quality indicators in this setting. At ifz she is working on the topic of resilience in pedagogy, exploring the importance of resilience for quality education in emergencies.

Solvor has previously studied English, theology and pedagogy in Norway and England. She has also taught Norwegian and special needs education in Norway, as well as worked as a pastoral assistance and taught Norwegian to immigrants.

Margalits Überlegungen für eine Politik der Würde
Margalit stellt die Frage, wie die Wirtschaft in einer anständigen Gesellschaft gestaltet sein muss.  Immer mehr Menschen werden durch den postindustriellen Wandel wirtschaftlich bedeutungslos. Eine moralische Antwort ist gefordert.  Ergeben sich aus der aktuellen Organisation von Wirtschaft und Arbeit Bedrohungen für die menschliche Würde?
