CBS workshop with our partner the Whitlam Institute at Western Sydney University
On 23-24th of June, 2016, the Public-Private Platform member Justine Grønbæk Pors and the Australian researcher Anna Yeatman from Whitlam Institute of Western Sydney University organised a two day workshop focusing on political technologies and conceptions of value. In 2015, the Whitlam Institute and the PP Platform became strategic partners in order to expand and reinforce collaboration across areas such as research, teaching and outreach/public engagement.
In order to widen the discussion about how new political technologies shape our welfare societies and the concepts of value, a number of senior scholars from Europe and Australia were invited to take part in the workshop. Amongst these were other Velux Professor Ian Hunter, Jeff Malpas distinguished Professor from University of Tasmania, Dr. Bogdan Costea from Lancaster University, Professor Mitchell Dean from Copenhagen Business School, and Professor Laurence Hemming from Lancaster University.
Papers from the workshop will be published in an edited volume from Rowan & Littlefield.
