DPR9: Trust

The 9th Conference of the Discourse, Power, Resistance Series

30th March – 1st April 2010
University of Greenwich, UK

Information on the conference will be posted on this web page

DPR9 looks at what happens when trust is lost. We ask why this happens, why it matters and what can be done to recover our trust in ourselves, our colleagues, managers, policy-makers, teachers, learners and health care and social services professionals. We look at trust and distrust in institutions and communities across cultural, social and racial boundaries.

The conference also confronts the controversy between qualitative and quantitative research methods, politically fraught and epistemologically contested, threatening to undermine trust in research findings.
