BSRS 2011 Norms, Values, Language and Culture

Resources and Limitations

The 4th edition of the Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) focused on questions related to the status and development of norms, values, language and culture and how these phenomena may serve as both resources and limitations in dealing with the complex challenges that the world faces today.

Language and the wider concept of culture can contribute to continuity and change, conflict and resolution. How are we to understand and make best use of the available resources, and how are we to understand and overcome the limitations that are inherent in norms, values, language and culture?

The 2011 edition of the Research School offerred 5 parallel courses which covered a range of thematic, theoretical and methodological topics important for research on major global challenges related to Norms, values, language and culture.
