Högre seminariet: Sociological Practice through the Lens of Theatre

Högre seminarium

Sociological Practice through the Lens of Theatre. Gästföreläsning av Helena Holgersson, universitetslektor vid institutionen för kulturvetenskaper, Göteborgs universitet.

Ordförande: Håkan Möller.

Seminariet hålls på engelska / The seminar will be held in English.

In the theatre project The Mental States of Gothenburg (Angereds Teater 2006), Helena Holgersson¿s assignment, together with two other sociologists, was to interview youths from different parts of Gothenburg. Based on their transcripts, the script-writer and director Mattias Andersson would then stage a theatre performance on living conditions, hope and dreams in the segregated city.

Both the "playwright" and the "sociologist" ended up being characters in the play, which made Holgersson revalue her own practice. As it turned out, the similarities between sociology and art was something that academics had been reflecting on ever since the discipline was established in the 19th century.

At this seminar Holgersson present a draft of the article "Sociological practices through the lens of theatre", in which she joins the conversation on the borders between sociology and art.
