Join staff from the Morgan Centre to add a creative perspective to all aspects of your qualitative research. This in-depth course is run as part of the methods@manchester summer school.
This intermediate level course offers a hands-on introduction to creative approaches to doing qualitative research. The various stages of research will be covered, from data collection and analysis through to writing with qualitative data.
We begin by introducing what we mean by doing qualitative research creatively, and course participants will also provide short introductions of their research projects. Participants will be given a practical and hands-on introduction to a range of creative qualitative methods of data collection, including various visual methods and mobile methods.
The course will also cover creative ways of analysing qualitative data and some of the key practical and ethical issues in using creative methods.
Finally, we discuss practical and intellectual strategies for writing with qualitative data, and consider how it is possible to theorise, or write conceptually, with such data.
The course includes workshop exercises involving creating qualitative data, and ‘methods surgeries’ where participants will have the opportunity to work with their own data.
Places are limited. For more information and to apply, see the methods@manchester website: https://www.methods.manchester.ac.uk/connect/events/summer-school-2019/courses/
