Dr. Christopher Doran (Social Science, UNBSJ) – “Universities and neo-liberalism: Advantages and disadvantages of an institutional ethnographic approach”

(Institutional Ethnography is a research strategy developed by Dorothy E. Smith and her students. This approach is increasingly being used in the social sciences, and fields such as Education, nursing and Social work. The primary orientation is to investigate the actual social relations whereby policies and practices enacted in specific local settings are co-ordinated and regulated from a distance)

All are welcome…(faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, etc.)
