Grounded Theory Forum – 12th February

Winter_im_OberdorfSubmitted by Sarah Neill

The fifth Grounded Theory Forum is on Wednesday 12th February, from 1-3pm, in MX7 meeting room on Park Campus. The subject for discussion is the adaptability of grounded theory.

Glaser and Strauss (1967), in their original text stated that GT strategies should be used flexibly – a perspective also shared by Charmaz when she stated that she views ‘GT methods as a set of principles and practices, not as prescription or packages’ (2006, p9). So how far can you adapt it before it is no longer grounded theory?

If you are interested in attending  please email Sarah Neill.
