This intermediate level course offers a hands-on introduction to creative approaches to doing qualitative research. The course is taught by an team based in Sociology, all members of the Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives. 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 discussing facet methodology. Course participants will also provide short introductions of their research projects. Participants will be given a practical and hands-on introduction to object interviews, creative ways of researching memory, mobile methods and sensory elicitation.
The course will also cover creative ways of analysing qualitative data and practical and intellectual strategies for writing with qualitative data. The course includes workshop exercises involving creating qualitative data and data analysis. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss methodological issues related to their ongoing research projects.
This course will be taught via a combination of pre-recorded lecture content, ‘live’ online Zoom sessions and ‘methods surgery’ drop-in sessions.
