  • CCR After-Work @Home #1 "Disasters, Disaster Capitalism, and Beyond –series"

Thursday April 16, at 17:00 - “Governance of and by exception: COVID-19”, with Eija Meriläinen

A warm welcome to our 1st-ever digital After-Work @Home! Register here
 
Eija Meriläinen is a doctoral student in Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility at Hanken. She studies disaster governance, striving to understand the roles and power of various organizations and institutions in responding to, recovering from and preparing for disasters. Her dissertation focuses on how the responsibility and ability of ‘communities’ is framed within the resilience discourse, particularly by non-governmental organizations whose influence within disaster governance is growing. The research draws mostly from the fields of disaster studies and human geography, but is interdisciplinary in nature. Theoretical and conceptual frameworks such as The Right to City and social contract thinking have been useful in approaching the phenomenon critically.

“Quality, non-quality, un-quality” and more in qualitative inquiry

During the recent critical and post-turns ‘the quality question’ in qualitative inquiry has been somewhat bypassed and maybe deemed irrelevant. Many different approaches to address the quality have been developed including different conceptualizations of validity, validation, relationality, and ethics. In this panel each presenter highlights different perspectives on how to respond to the question of quality in today’s neoliberal contexts. This panel returns to the series of quality questions and it aims to problematize the concept and its uses and non-uses. We argue that even though the concept of ‘quality’ might be more or less productive in qualitative inquiry the question of worth, value, and goodness of qualitative inquiry has not disappeared but continues to linger. How should qualitative researchers respond?  Who might be willing to respond to the inquiries often coming from other disciplines and inquiry traditions? How might the global community address the quality question differently?
