Parts of the Plus-Delta responses at the end of the CES Lecture, 26 Oct 2012

One thing I appreciated
One thing to be developed further
(either by speaker or by the person writing)
Visual schemes

Approach regarding study of phenomena by different sciences & workshop ideas regarding flexible engagement/transversal engagement
More examples to illustrate conceptual framework
Vision of interdependence between several areas and actions with related time lines
From myself, more relationship with research process and the environment
Leitmotiv of presentation evolved from a single standpoint that is a common concern; there was a close interaction with the audience's situation
Make the logic of the vignettes less diffuse and easier to follow the reasoning
Historical lines of evolution of American [Méxican?] socio-ecology as example for action
In refractive practice diagram light has to be broken by non-parallel surfaces to break up light into spectral order
Challenging presentation; ambitious, but well-organized
Apply this knowledge to social science. Concerning the object of analysis, knowledge, ask What is knowledge?
The form of the presentation, linking the ideas and the methodology of presenting
Connection between the themes and the experience of emeaicão? of the thesis
Continuous finding of news ways of developing and diversifying work
Where the rethinking of my path of research might, or might not, lead me—must that be a permanent position?
Very interesting presentation
Change my way of thinking about my PhD—I will have to think much more and do much more research
We should not take things for granted, evolution is constant and deserves more attention

Sharing impressions about one's personal research path.
Work on the question, “How difficult is it to modify established knowledge and practices
Some slides, simple ones, with just a sentence or thought were great to keep my attention
Spaghetti slides were confusing from the back
Intersecting processes of any change
Difference between refractive and diffractive practice
Some of the people who attend the workshops develop insights about themselves and their work
How the insights are applied after the workshops
Maps of complexity and intersecting levels
More on refractive practice
Emphasis on flexibility
More practical examples
Opening the mind reflection about flexible engagement
Middle part of refractive practice
Lesson on complexity
How to conceptualize the notion of the border within tis framework
Freewriting exercise—would like to know more about it. The approach to reflexivity.
What about external pressures that sometimes prevents us changing? Risk factors that may curb creativity.
The original approach.
Turn “these ideas” into a practical exercise, so we experienced transversal engagement in the moment. Organize one of these workshops for us to participate in before leaving Portugal
Quick discussion about local and translocal knowledge
Expand discussion about transversal engagement
Creativoity and new ways of dealing with knowledge and critical thinking. Really amazing!
I am interested in developing further the topic of dealing with alternative knowledges and different possibilities of producing knowledge. (For example, how can I engage with the struggles, the pain and the knowledge produced by San Tomean female writers and the colonial history of the country with appropriating their voices? How do I deal with privileged memories?)
Personal experience and the innovative character of the issues
More well organized so that some slides were not confusing. More development of the ANT of Latour.

Personal reference to the beginning of your research in Australia, explaining that you left too early and the reference to your grandfather.
I have to develop as early as possible a plan for my PhD for the year ahead in order to try not to go too far from my origin and my concern to publish not only in academic terms.
The concept of refractive practice and how it confers value to multi-pluri-trans-disciplinary paths and conversations
How to identify major from minor elements of the intersections, i.e., stronger and weaker explanatory factors in what we study. Connect with network analysis.
The moment of exposing: how can we acknowledge the perspectives of others to enrich our own, even though the fields of study are completely different
More detailed explanation of the models so they are clear
The ways that this presentation made me feel that every question and every work of interest have value
More elaboration of the idea of daily writing
The use of the complexity of ecological, social, and economic aspects of our world with a focus on the role of knowledge production and collaboration in possible ways to deal with complexity
Deepen the examples to clarify the possibilities for collaboration
Stimulating reflective practice and interdisciplinarity
Develop this reflection and intensity
The concept of engagement
Presentation of studies in areas that involve multiple foci such as health and political economy
Refractive practice
Future consequences
The possibility to think in a new way, a more complex way
My difficulty in participating in the freewriting exercise
The presentation tried to address the difficulties of managing research as researchers experience it so as to help understand and look back on pathways of research
I am not sure I understood the presentation correctly and would need more examples, such as the one on your personal history, to consider the philosophical issues involved.
