Connecting Cultures through co-production in “Learning Space” project

The University of Warwick’s Connecting Cultures Global Research Priority (GRP) has awarded £1,200 to the emerging research project “Learning Space” co-led by GSD Assistant Professor Marco J Haenssgen and Lao researcher Thipphaphone (Kee) Xayavong.

With the support of the Connecting Cultures GRP, the researchers will be able to support the conversion of locally co-produced narratives into creative products for cross-cultural dialogue within and beyond Lao PDR, and to engage critically with mainstream assumptions (automatic links between formal education and Western ideals of health behaviour) and approaches (human capital) in global development agendas.

The project takes place in collaboration with the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement Laos and the University of Health Sciences in Vientiane, and the broader study is supported by the Warwick Institutional Research Support Fund and the Institute of Advanced Study.
