NERA 2018: 46th Nordic Educational Research Research Association Congress: Boundaries, Breaches and Bridges

8-10 March 2018 • University of Oslo, Norway

The conference will explore how boundaries between knowledge fields and actors are challenged and how new boundaries are constructed in educational sciences today.
Key questions to be addressed include:

  • How are boundaries transcended and (re)defined in the educational sciences?
  • How is the traditional organization of the educational sciences challenged in the wake of interdisciplinary research and user involvement?
  • What opportunities and challenges lie in disciplinary demarcations, when it comes to balancing productive exchange across boundaries?

The online submission of abstracts will be open between September 15th and November 1st 2017.
