Engaging with Society: Stakeholders, Outreach and Impact, PS9000

PhD course

The course will give candidates an advanced introduction to the changing role that social science is playing in society, and which societal stakeholders are playing in the social sciences.

  • Introduction

    This course will give candidates an advanced introduction to the changing role that social science is playing in society, and which societal stakeholders are playing in the social sciences. It covers issues of new expectations and requirements of research to engage with society, and how they may reflect more general societal transformations. These expectations and requirements concern achieving societal impact, bringing on board various groups of stakeholders and end-users, disseminating research findings to a wide range of and increasingly diverse set of audiences, reaching out to vulnerable groups, and of incorporating non-researchers into the processes of planning, doing and publishing social science research.

    Theoretically, the course considers the transition from ‘Mode 1’ over ‘Mode 2’ to ‘Mode 3’ of knowledge production, of the knowledge economy, and the theoretical underpinnings of ‘evidence-based research’, including the realist approach. Specific topics will vary between courses according the needs of the PhD students.
    The course is a requirement for all candidates in the PhD programme in Social Sciences, OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University. The candidates are encouraged to complete the course early in their studies.
