Professor Yamamoto reports on Forces and Forms – Kassel conference

The meeting which was titled “The Policy Potential of Innovation and Research in Graduate Education” focused mainly on the issue of inequality and diversity of doctoral education around the world. The participants discussed these matters in a very enthusiastic manner after the presentations of selected participants and guest speakers. Unlike pure academic meetings, we have prepared no individual papers but three larger papers were co-written by many participants, and most of our time was devoted to the discussion on these themes.”

Professor Yamamoto, an active participant in the 3rd Forces and Forms conference, reports on conference’s workshop-like style.
