«Lytt til meg!» - Å gjøre arbeid med mennesker mer menneskelig



Den tredje internasjonale konferansen om dialogiske praksiser

Vi inviterer til den tredje internasjonale konferansen om dialogiske praksiser i Kristiansand, 23. til 25. september, 2015.

På konferansens nettside finner dere mer informasjon om programmet og påmelding: Klikk her

Vi ønsker at konferansen skal være en arena der mennesker som er involverte i profesjonelle dialoger kan dele erfaringer og visjoner omkring hva hjelpsomme dialoger er og kan være.
Konferanseprogrammet veksler mellom plenumsforelesninger, kortere workshops og arbeidsgrupper.

Konferansen har fire hovedforedragsholdere:

Colwyn Trevarthen: Menneskelig liv er musikk som vi deler
Trevarthen er anerkjent for sine studier av samspillet mellom babyer og mødre/fedre. Han oppdaget at «babyer har vidunderlige rytmiske bevegelser, de danser med sine mødre, lydene de lager er melodier». Det er babyene som inviterer de voksne til denne leken gjennom øyekontakt, smil, lyder og håndbevegelser, sier Trevarthen. «Menneskelig liv er musikk, ikke rasjonell psykologi.»

Sheila McNamee: Profesjonelle som mennesker - Transformerende dialogiske møter
McNamee er anerkjent for sin sentrale rolle i utviklingen av sosialkonstruksjonismen. Gjennom dialoger skaper vi sammen en fremtid vi kan leve i, sier hun. Denne transformering gjennom dialoger krever vår oppmerksomhet mot annerledeshet. «Dialog er å invitere det uventede» sier hun.

Gert Biesta: Å gjøre svakhet tøffere - Om utdanning, dialog og om hvor vanskelig det er å være i verden på en voksen måte
Biesta er anerkjent for sine nytenkende perspektiver på skole og utdanning. Hva det vil si å være et menneske er ikke noe vi som profesjonelle må vite på forhånd, det er et spørsmål vi alltid tar med oss inn i arbeidet med dem vi skal utdanne (eller hjelpe). Biesta snakker om hva utdanning egentlig vil si,  og om hva utdanning er hvis utdanning handler om å forsøke å hjelpe barn og ungdom til å være i verden på en voksen måte.   

Tim Ingold: Menneskeliggjøring i praksis – Å se, å lytte og kultiveringen av oppmerksomhet
Ingold er en anerkjent antropolog som bringer sosiale og biologiske perspektiver sammen. Han vil i sitt innlegg ta utgangspunkt i at menneskelighet ikke er noe som noe allerede gitt, men noe vi hele tiden former sammen gjennom en vandrende prosess. Vi mennesker blir til gjennom å sanse, se, lytte og være oppmerksomme på det, og de, som er rundt oss. Denne tilblivelsen skjer i spennet mellom sansning og forestilling i en fremtidsrettet bevegelse, sier Ingold.

Konferansen foregår på engelsk. Vi tror at også de som ikke er trygge på sine egne engelskferdigheter, vil kunne ha stort utbytte av å delta. Foreleserne er alle vante til å forelese for publikum som ikke har engelsk som morsmål, og vertskapet på konferansen vil være tilgjengelige for å drøfte temaer eller oppklare begreper underveis på konferansen. Konferansen vil også romme mange elementer som handler mer om helhetlig opplevelse enn om språklig forståelse.

Hjertelig velkommen til spennende og viktige dager i Kristiansand!

The conferences on dialogical practices are all about developing dialogical ways of working together with individuals, families and communities. Through dialogue we can give space to people’s vitality.

This year's conference pays special attention to working together with children, and to exploring ways to allow children to speak with their own voices in demanding situations. Under the slogan “Listen to me!” - Humanizing human practices", we'll explore what might be involved in re-humanizing the practices of dialogue – many of which have become de-humanized in recent times – under three main headings:

1. Dialogues of everyday life
2. Dialogue and social justice
3. The dialogical body

The conference aims to provide an arena were practitioners, scholars, researchers and service users from various disciplines can meet and share their experiences and ideas, and co-create ways of working dialogically within human practices.

Keynote speakers: 
All plenary speakers have, in different ways, been concerned with human interaction and life as dialogue, yet they come from different fields and cultures, and highlight different perspectives. We believe that, together, they may force us to step up to the ethical demands, and personal and societal risks, of engaging in dialogical practices.

Colwyn TrevarthenColwyn Trevarthen is Emeritus Professor of Child Psychology and Psychobiology at the University of Edinburgh. In the early 70’s, at a time where psychology was dominated by individual perspectives, Trevarthen was one of the first researchers to introduce the term intersubjectivity. His analyzes of mother – baby and father – baby relations showed how babies themselves initiate a dialogic relationship with adults, and continue this dialogue through eye contact, smiling, and other bodily movements, rhythmically and cooperatively. He showed that this interplay is about more than learning by imitation and about more than developing patterns of attachment. Through his groundbreaking research he has helped us to understand the dialogical basic quality of human life. He now says, “In these studies, I have realized that human life is not psychology, it’s music”.

Sheila McNameeSheila McNamee is Professor of Communication at the University of New Hampshire and founding member, vice president and board member of the Taos Institute. Her research and writing represent a significant contribution in exploring social constructionist theory and practice. She has developed dialogic transformative approaches to create livable futures in psychotherapy, social work, social sciences, conflict resolution, and mediation. She is the author of Relational Responsibility: Resources for Sustainable Dialogue, with Kenneth Gergen. McNamee advocates a relational ethic based on difference. In one of her recent writings (The Difference of Dialogue. Toward a relational ethic) she outlines how dialogue is not about finding common ground or common understanding. Dialogue evolves from difference, and attention to difference is crucial to the transformative possibilities of dialogue. Dialogue is about inviting the unexpected, she says. Her works are inspired by philosophers such as Wittgenstein, Bakhtin, Searle and Bateson.

Tim Ingold is a British anthropologist and Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. In his recent work, he links the themes of environmental perception and skilled practice. Against traditional models of genetic and cultural transmission, founded upon the alliance of neo-Darwinian biology and cognitive science, Ingold presents a relational approach focusing on the growth of embodied skills of perception and action  within social and environmental contexts of human development. Our humanity, Ingold argues, does not come ready-made, but is continually fashioned in our movements along ways of life. Starting from the idea of life as a process of wayfaring, Ingold presents a radically new understanding of movement, knowledge and description as dimensions not just of being in the world, but of being alive to what is going on there. Ingold argues that anthropology should be a practice of engaging in the lives of others, with the potential to contribute to real transformation – as a prospective endeavor. 

Gert BiestaAfter having worked at universities in the Netherlands, the UK and Luxembourg, Gert Biesta (www.gertbiesta.com) is currently part-time Professor of Education at Brunel University London. He was editor-in-chief of the journal Studies in Philosophy and Education (1999-2014) and is a former president of the Philosophy of Education Society USA. He writes about the theory and philosophy of education and the theory and philosophy of educational and social research. Through a trilogy of monographs published over the last eight years (Beyond learning, Good education in an age of measurement and The beautiful risk of education), Biesta explores ideas about what it means to be human, and how such ideas influence how we think about education - and ultimately, how what is at stake in education is humanity itself. Biesta asks what might happen to the ways in which we educate if we treat the question "what does it mean to be human?" as a radically open question; a question that can only be answered by engaging in intersubjective dialogue, rather than as a question that needs to be answered before we can educate. Throughout his writings he provides concrete suggestions for engaging with the question of purpose in education in new, more precise and more encompassing ways, with explicit attention to the ethical, political and democratic dimensions of education. His recent work focuses increasingly on the phenomenon of teaching and the experience of being taught.
