The relationship between theory and practice is a primary concern within the field of Education. Researchers are often criticized for being too far removed from authentic, everyday classroom experiences. In contrast, teachers may have little time to incorporate theory into their practice. Nevertheless, theory and practice reciprocally influence each other on multiple levels forming a symbiotic relationship that is in need of exploration.
Renowned anthropologist and winner of the 2013 Holberg Prize, Bruno Latour, will be coming to speak on “"Gaia, Anthropology and the Law".
His reflections will pursue a theme he undertook in the 2013 Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, entitled “Facing Gaia, Six Lectures on the Political Theology of Nature.”
See http://www.bruno-latour.fr/node/486. Latour’s ongoing project, An Inquiry into the Modes of Existence (AIME) forms the backdrop to the lecture.

Building knowledge across time: An example of research on participation
Quality of life and definitions of death are both often based on the concept of personhood – a status given by one human being to another as a result of their relationship and successful interaction. Unfortunately, this important attribute is frequently not given to individuals who do not have the ability to communicate or to interact with others. My research is concerned with enhancing the quality of life of non-communicative persons and their caregivers by using novel technologies to reveal and elicit signs of their personhood.
