The wicked problems of social capital theory
March 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0Free
This week Tristan Claridge will give a short presentation on “The “wicked problems” of social capital” followed by a discussion.
There are several nagging tensions and incongruences associated with the concept of social capital that are typically ignored but are impossible to escape and, it seems, to resolve. Critics are quick to point to these problems but the growing body of literature on social capital seems immune to criticism. Is it useful to frame these issues as “wicked problems”?
In this session we will discuss which problems associated with social capital should be considered “wicked” and how these problems can best be resolved or mitigated.
This event is part of our regular presentation and discussion session for researchers including PhD/Masters students.
These sessions are a supportive way to connect with people. You can ask questions, get advice, discuss ideas or issues, get suggestions for literature to read, or you can just listen.
Do you want to present your research? Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defense, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.
Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program. In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.

Generally, presentations can be 15 to 30 mins depending on your project. The content of your presentation will depend on your research stage.
