UiS workshop on agency in health care scheduled for April 15th

The last few months I have been in contact with Stephen Cowley (University of Hertfordshire), Paul Thibault (University of Agder) and more recently Febe Friberg (University of Stavanger) and Sissel Husebø (UiS) concerning a workshop which is to be held at University of Stavanger's Department of Health Studies. The workshop, which is titled "Agency in Health Care: Phenomenology and Experience", has now been scheduled for April 15th. 

All four mentioned above will present, with the visiting professors Stephen Cowley and Paul Thibault given most time. I am more of a coordinator. Stephen (who is the coordinator of the Distributed Language Group) will further give a public lecture at the department on April 16th. My head of department Kari Vevatne has helped making these events possible by offering the necessary funding. The workshop will be part of the department's doctoral seminar, for which Febe is one of the coordinators.

Abstracts and other details will follow shortly.
