Qualitative methodology days for research students

Graduate School WorkshopsDr Jane Callaghan will be running two 2-day workshops in qualitative methods in February and May 2014.

On February 4th-5th, Jane will be running a workshop on “Doing Discourse”, exploring the theoretical underpinnings of a discursive approach to qualitative analysis. Discursive analysis can be applied to text, visual images and ethnographic material. Throughout the two days, students will explore how language, space and visual material intersect in the production of discursive practice.

The second workshop, on May 13th-14th, will explore different forms of interpretation in qualitative research. Students will draw on phenomenological approaches, and Interpretive Interactionism, to work with a range of textual, visual and spatial materials.

Both workshops are ready for booking. They will be open to students outside of UoN so do book soon, as there are limited places. Further details can be found below, just click on the course titles for more information and to book:
