Under the title Fantastic Wednesday the PhD in Practice opens its doors to the Academy, friends, and other interested people. Program participants present their work in progress and experiment with different formats of presentation.


This evening invites you to take part in a guided meditation, and to have a conversation on the radical possibilities of pedagogy in this kind of practice. How can we study for what-is-not-yet?

This work-in-progress deals with unsettling and de-centering by the means of meditation. A voice guides the listener through an awareness exercise, where one‘s body is soaked into the sea, and the rhythm of self is disrupted by a call from the deep. There is an element of ”soft cohesion”, a persuasiveness of the voice, guiding the listener to dispossess of the current reality, falling into another rhythm, to be possessed and unsettled. But there is also space for negotiation and resistance.

Lisa Nyberg‘s research deals with pedagogies of the unknown, and this evening is part of her explorations of guided meditations as performance and pedagogy.
