Description

Painting by Linda Apple

The workshop is questioning abstract and universalist conceptions of developing psychological know­ledge and tries to include the subjective dimension of human life in psychological research practice. How to get in touch and explore general connections on the basis of the situated, partial and concrete character of psychological phenomena? What is the role of critique in the processes of generalization? How to involve research participants in the interpretations and processes of generalization? How to develop analytical concepts and strategies which help us to conceive psychological phenomena as processes and movements, and how does the development of psychological knowledge involve trans­formations of everyday practice? The aim of the workshop is to contribute to a theoretical and metho­dological vocabulary which roots psychological inquiry and processes of generalization in persons’ common, social, cultural and material practices of everyday living.
