Types of contributions
We invite researchers, artists, activists, practitioners, and
students to share everything from practice-based knowledge to high level
theoretical and philosophical reflections on this year's theme. Maybe
- a researcher with a traditional academic knowledge contribution.
- an activist who has developed a specific approach to getting your agenda heard in the media.
- a researcher who has connected practice and theory in new ways.
- a part of a corporate institution that has found a way to work with change, innovation, and futuristic dreams.
- an artist who has developed utopian perspectives on societal challenges.
- a student who wants to display a new way of experimenting with utopian ideas.
- a partnership of different stakeholders that work together around utopian ideas.
short, we want your new perspectives on how we can move beyond the
status quo; How do we break the old patterns and gain new understandings
of what lies behind. So please surprise, challenge, and impress us with
what you have been working on.
This call is for people who want to present their concepts,
knowledge, and ideas to an audience. You will get fifteen minutes to
present and then there will be five minutes for questions. The submitted
knowledge contribution will be grouped thematically into academic
panels. Each panel will end with a shared reflection between the
audience and the participants for 15 minutes led by a moderator from
Roskilde University. You do not have to follow the keynote format. If
another way of presenting your knowledge (food tasting, musical
composition, design workshop, etc.) is more relevant, then we welcome
you to be inventive with your expression within the timeframe. We will
have panels both days.
How to apply
To apply, we will need a one-page abstract from you. This abstract needs to answer the following:
- What is the concrete knowledge contribution you will present?
- How is this knowledge contribution relevant to the theme and one of the tracks at GRASP 2023?
- How does this relate to existing knowledge, either practice-based or theoretical?
You are welcome to be one or more authors on the abstract.
