Vigdis Stokker Jensen: Educational governance and diversity in a biomedical age


The design of my PhD-project is qualitative and ethnographic. The approach is in the intersection of sociology/philosophy with ‘dynamic nominalism’ as overarching methodology (Ian Hacking). Thematically it revolves around ethopolitics (the intertwinement of the vital and the social (Nikolas Rose)), educational governance, neuroscience, classifications/diagnosis, autism, perceptions of normalcy.
