Even wondered how to integrate various philosophical theories to work in your data analysis? This session will explore how post-structuralist methods towards data analysis can help provide us with a framework (both theoretical and practice) to interrogate empirical data with theory.
Specific examples will be given in relation to post-structural moral philosophy. The approach to data analysis explored in this sessions can broadly be defined as ‘discourse analysis’, but the limits of this methodological tradition will be critiqued and possible ways of connecting with other methodological disciplines will be explored to enhance data collection and analysis. Exemplars of data will be provided, but participants are invited to bring exemplars from their own work as well. No prior reading is necessary, but key texts will be available on the day and can be emailed to participants afterwards.
