Qualitative Research Methods

Convenor: Professor Nick Llewellyn

Time: Wednesdays 2.00 - 6.00 (Term 2). Weeks 1 - 8

Location: Wolfson Research Exchange, Library

In this module we will explore Qualitative Research Methods. In part, the module is practical. We'll ‘have a go at’ different qualitative research methods, including research interviews, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, visual analysis and ethnography. At the same time, we will reflect upon theoretical and intellectual issues relating to the practice of doing qualitative research. The module will address key issues, debates and controversies relevant for the way we design and evaluate qualitative studies. The interplay between the philosophy of social science and the practices of the qualitative researcher will be a constant concern. Click here for the MODULE OVERVIEW with readings.
