Methods Clinic with Afshin Mehrpouya
Registration is required to receive the Zoom link
The Methods Lab at ABC (SSE's research center for Arts, Business and Culture) is a new and progressive incubator of methodology-focused discourse and experiments in new methods that range from the sciences, humanities as well as arts-based approaches at the the Stockholm School of Economics. Created by a team of PhD students and junior scholars, the Methods Lab focuses on ways in which we make methods matter, bringing different ontological and epistemological stances into dialogue. Exploring, experimenting, and engaging with those curious to see what the world of methods has to offer, the methods lab aims to contribute to a wider dialogue of what engaged scholarship in business and social sciences could be like. Regularly, the Lab organises Methods Clinics to foster discussions about methodology and methods particularly amongst young scholars. Welcome to our upcoming Methods Clinic with Afshin Mehrpouya!
