Event description

Description

Through four different and thought provoking events the speakers and those attending the symposium will take part in a deep reflection on the meaning of the Institute’s work and history. Situated at its heart is the work to catalogue the Institute’s archive, what it means for this unique document of social history to be made publically available for society at large and those of us working as Tavistock practitioners today. The opening up of the archive as moving from the shadows of our forebears to standing on the shoulders of giants.

Events confirmed so far:

Interweaving TIHR work in societal change. Setting two large scale industrial action-research programmes in their historical context, one situated in the Irish fertiliser industry; and the other in an Anglo-Norwegian shipping company highlights both the way institute work is interwoven with societal change; Elliot Stern will talk about how project work feeds into the ‘institute as a laboratory’ where project learning is internalised and conceptual thinking is informed by grounded theory.

On being an orphan, an untold story. Through engaging with the archive, conversations with colleagues and reflections from her role Eliat Aram tells her story of the journey that brought the Institute to where it is now.

This event can be booked as a full day symposium or you can attend the morning and afternoon sessions separately.
