Spaces & Times of Transitions - STREAM Network 2024 Research Symposium Series

The Sunkhronos Institute is proud to support the upcoming ESREA STREAM Network 2024 Research Symposium Series. This series of webinars will focus on the theme of transitions.

In this first STREAM Network webinars series, Michel Alhadeff-Jones, Fadia Dakka and Sabine Schmidt-Lauff, invite scholars from a broad range of disciplines to address transitional phenomena by mobilizing the conceptual nuance and richness encapsulated in related notions, such as “liminality”, "life course", “transgression”, "professional development", “virtualization”, “hybridity” and “dissipation”. These, in turn, will serve as entry points to articulate, debate and question how individuals and communities experience transitions. The seminars will be guided by (but not limited to) questions such as:

• How do we experience transitions? How do we learn from them?
• How do we theorize transitional processes? How do we anticipate them?
• How can we better navigate changes through calibration?
• How do we conceive the relationship between crisis, disruption, and transition?
• How do we conceive the relationship between macro-meso-micro processes of transitions (e.g. social, political, environmental, etc.)
• How do (adult) educators support people in dealing with such transitions?
• How do we articulate the learning and generative potential that are intrinsic to the messiness of transitions?
• How can transitions, intended as processes rather than ‘states’, be used to advance a processual understanding of (adult) education?

Participation in this Research Symposium Series is free and open. Each Zoom session starts with a presentation from the main speaker (approx. 45 min.) and is followed by a discussion with the audience (approx. 40 min.).
