What room do universities today allow researchers and students to challenge power and contribute to social change?

On the occasion of Thomas Mathiesen's new autobiography, we invite debate on the work against - and research on - discrimination. Mathiesen describes a long research life as a critic of power and with a belief in a scientific practice with clear political involvement.

Is Mathiesen's idea of a "science from the outside", where academics and civil society work together against social injustice, still relevant?

Researchers with experience from academic and political work against discrimination are invited to the seminar:

Chairman of the board is Marte Rua (fellow, Oslo) who is currently researching the use of isolation in prison . Active in Scandinavian isolation network .

The event is free and open to everyone. Students are encouraged to participate. Welcome to a seminar on the relationship between science and social change.
