Theoretical and Methodological Challenges and Advantages When Combining Methods and Using Cross-Scientific Perspectives in the Study of Senior Camps.
In this presentation we will discuss the theoretical and methodological challenges and advantages of combining different perspectives when studying the phenomena of senior camps. What happens in the cross-scientific meeting of ethnology, occupational science and history of ideas in the view of notions such as activity, subject and power? Further, experiences of applying a user perspective through a user conference following the methodological principles of the world café will be shared. The world café method enabled the researchers and responsible persons for the 11 different senior camps in Sweden to jointly reflect upon the findings and deepen the analysis. Experiences of combining different scientific perspectives as well as researcher-users perspectives will be elaborated upon in this presentation.
