- Conference: Parenting and Personhood: Cross-cultural perspectives on expertise, family life and risk management
This event is taking place on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 June 2016 in Canterbury, UK. The conference is being held as part of the project, ‘Parenting Cultures and Risk Management in Plural Norway’. At the conference, findings from the project will be presented by the research team. The conference aims, however, to bring together researchers from various disciplines who are interested in the interplay between parenting cultures, personhood, expertise and risk management. Our aim is to provide a venue for genuinely interdisciplinary dialogue for those with common research interests.
