A description from IMDb:

Controversy is Part of the Job, Leiden - 'The future is so bright I gotta wear shades'
23 October 2008 | 't Keizertje, Leiden | 34 attending


The WDO evenings organized in four different cities under the title "Controversy is part of the job" were meant to spark interest in the (theme of) the grand Lustrumsymposium. These events turned out to be gems in their own right. The one in Leiden certainly came up to the high expectations with as speakers our inspiring lecturers Sabine Luning, Marianne Maeckelbergh and Erik Bähre. Their view on the theme, personal stories and critical reflexivity gave an insight into the deeply complicated and awkward situations one can find oneself in while doing long-term research. Their openness and self-criticism inspired the students cramped in the small but cosy café attic to (re)consider their viewpoints on the ethics of research and being researcher.


Below you'll find a further report of the evening, previously published in the ICA, the CA/OS magazine published by student association Itiwana. We are very glad the ICA approved to republish it here.
