United Platform for Creativity in Education

New research network — Possibility Studies Network

UPCE becomes a member of the Possibility Studies Network.

“The Possibility Studies Network (PSN) brings together academics, researchers and practitioners from centres, laboratories or societies dedicated to the study of human possibility, its antecedents, processes, limitations and consequences.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, creativity, imagination, innovation, anticipation, utopias / dystopias, anticipation and futures studies, play, improvisation, wonder, serendipity. Research conducted to study these topics is often situated at the intersection between psychology, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, political science, the arts, design, engineering, creative industries, cultural studies, and education.

Members of the network agree to collaborate in order to advance the emerging field of possibility studies and our theoretical and practical understanding of how individuals and collectives become aware of and explore new possibilities in the realm of the psychological, material, technological, social, cultural and/or political.”
