Kitchen Seminars

The K-seminars (abbreviation from "kitchen seminars") are an international think-tank in cultural psychology that was first established by Jaan Valsiner in 1997 as a space for free constructive discussions of unfinished research projects and first ideas for new research efforts. Its first location was the kitchen in the Psychology Department of Clark University (hence the name "kitchen"). It has become a Worldwide network of scholars who participate weekly in substantive discussions of relevant research ideas, by being present in the seminar directly or via videoconference, or by e-mail. Since 2013 the central areana for the K-seminars has moved to Aalborg University where it meets at 15:00 CET every Wednesday afternoon at Kroghstræde 3, Room 4.117. Anybody interested in joining this network can request to be included in the K-list to receive the materials under discussion, by e-mailing Emily Abbey at Ramapo College, USA, at mimuspolyglottus@gmail.com.
