International PhD event
On the 26th and 27th of November KINDknow and Conceptual PlayLab in Monash University in Australia arranged an international online event for PhD students. In 2018 KINDknow and Conceptual PlayLab started the planning of an event where PhD students and their supervisors were going to meet in Oxford University. Since we were not able to meet physically the event was made into a digital event.The event was designed to open up space for dialogue on concepts used in culturalhistorical research. Presenters and participants collectively discussed concepts in relation to their empirical studies. The event aims to advance thinking on cultural-historical concepts. In keeping with the oral tradition of the cultural-historical community, this event was designed to focus on the theoretical concepts of crisis, learning and development and crisis, play and learning.
