About

By consequence of the success of the first two Editions in Pisa (2016 and 2017), with the participation of about 120 students coming from all around the world, as well as of the 2018 Edition hold in Lithuania, with the involvement of the School's founders as teachers, the Department of Political Science of the University of Pisa is realizing the IV International Summer School on Grounded Theory and Qualitative Methods.

The Summer School is an intensive 5-day course (with morning and afternoon sessions), where exercises and workgroups alternate with lectures. Qualitative researchers often experience common problems such as getting lost after collecting and coding data, overlooking possibilities for developing their ideas, and producing disjointed and mundane reports. Grounded Theory methods help you expedite analyzing data and writing a report. This Summer School focuses on improving skills in using Grounded Theory strategies to help you increase the incisiveness, clarity, and creativity of your work. These school will help you retain the flexibility of Grounded Theory while furthering the conceptual depth and scope of your analysis.... [-]

The art of emulating life: design across biological scales!

Workshop Dates: August 26-30, 2019

Faculty: Rebeca Mora & Monika Seyfried

What is this workshop?

At this point in our global ecological crisis, the survival of humanity will require a fundamental shift in our attitude toward nature: from finding out how we can dominate and manipulate nature to how we can learn from it. This course could be summed up as an awakening: reconnection with Nature of which we are part. Participants will know a tool of design, a scientific discipline, a creative method, a strategy for our survival and a movement with a distinctive character of sustainability. It will capture your imagination in a pragmatic and culturally transforming way. We will find sustainable and practical solutions to problems of daily life by emulating the countless recipes and strategies that nature has developed (bacteria, crustaceans, birds, plants, forests, etc.) in 3.8 billion years of evolution. This course involves an active search, a conscious foresight; it does not imply extracting from nature, it implies learning from it. Human beings are not simply observers of nature, as if we were looking at it from a bubble. We are 100% in nature. Therefore, ingenious and beautiful as well as the countless strategists on which this course is inspired, it is time to intensify the inventiveness and look for more practical applications and answers based on the sustainable, effective and even aesthetically attractive solutions that nature developed a long time ago. In general, designs, products,... [-]
