Professor Srikant Sarangi at NSEP

"Workplaces are social institutions where resources are produced and regulated, problems are solved, identities are played out and professional knowledge is constituted". Discourse in such workplaces is complex, overlapping and with unclear boundaries, manifesting what Sarangi and Roberts (1999) call discursive hybridity. In his visit at NSEP Tuesday 2.October, 10.00-12.00, Professor Srikant Sarangi discusses the notion discursive hybridity. Managing Director at NSEP and specialist in Rheumatology, Arild Faxvaag, gives an introduction to the discussion by focusing on observed communicative challenges in the clinical setting. If you want to attend, please inform us: heidi.gilstad@ntnu.no. Sarangi is recently honoured with the title "academician" in The Academy of Social Sciences in UK.
