  •       Research Seminar: Beyond the Product - Enabling design services in small and medium sized enterprises

While the design industry is moving into new domains, it seems that potential customers do not always understand how the designer can contribute beyond the aesthetically appealing product. The overall purpose of this thesis is to expand our understanding of design as an enabling service in the context of small and medium sized enterprises. An enabling design service has the potential to result in organizational learning and change. The co-creation of new knowledge and competencies can in turn enable the customer organization to become more innovative and able to deal with an ambiguous environment.

Date: 20th January, 2016

Location: Akvariet, Campus Helsingborg

  • Open Lecture by Eric Ringmar “Civilizing China”: Western “liberal barbarism” in the 19th century and the consequences for China’s self-image

The lecture is based on his recent book, Liberal Barbarism: The European Destruction of the Palace of the Emperor of China, that describes the destruction in 1860 of the Chinese imperial palace Yuanmingyuan by British and French troops. The palace, which held one of history’s greatest art collections, had been the pride of the Chinese Emperor.  The brutal violence employed by Western powers in the destruction of Yuanmingyuan seems to contradict their liberal image and the aim of "civilizing” China. Why did they choose such ruthless tactics? What consequences did the attack on the imperial palace have on the Chinese self-image? What can we learn from this historical example?

Erik Ringmar is professor of political science at Lund University. He is the author of numerous books covering international relations theory, history, and cultural and economic sociology. The latest book Liberal Barbarism: The European Destruction of the Palace of the Emperor of China was published by Palgrave in 2013.

For more information about this event see here and for more information about Prof. Ringmar see http://www.svet.lu.se/en/erik-ringmar

Time: 13:15-15:00

Date:  19th January,2016

Location: Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Scheelevägen 15, Room Alfa 1010

 

  • Symposium: Nordic Research on Problem Gaming from an Everyday Perspective

What is the problem in problem gaming?

Problem gaming is a field rapidly gaining in academic and popular interest. A large body of the mainstream international research on the topic is still dominated by medical, psychological and discourse studies of game addiction. However, recent research conducted in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, share a different critical perspective sprung from everyday-, user-oriented, humanities and media-sociological frameworks. Several of these perspectives are represented at the Symposium and enhanced by further insights from representatives from the fields of practice and policy.

Registration: To attend the symposium you must register by the 13th of January 2016. You register by sending an email to mia.krokstade [at] cors.lu.se. There is a limited number of seats, so be sure to register as soon as possible.
