Basic implicit assumptions in urban and planning research.

These basic assumptions regard the nature of reality and the nature of knowledge. They also inform our methodological and normative choices. Accordingly, they essentially influence our research from problem definition, through data interpretation, to conclusions drawn and policy recommendations at the end of the process. They are however seldom being articulated and reflected upon. 

We are happy to host CAPS researchers Rani Lill Anjum and Elena Rocca who will introduce the concept of Basic Implicit Assumptions in Science (BIAS) and present some examples from their disciplines. We will then focus specifically on planning and urban research, encouraging the audience to reflect on basic implicit assumptions in their own work/their research field. 

WHEN: Friday 23 November, 13:00-15:00
WHERE: Meeting Room 301, KA Building, NMBU Ås campus

All welcome!
