This course will give you an overview of avant-garde and arts-based approaches of doing qualitative research and provide you with basic knowledge about creative methods in the social sciences.
Led by Dr Alexandrina Vanke and contemporary artist Victoria Lomasko, we will cover a full-cycle qualitative study and explain how to incorporate arts-based strategies at all stages. We will discuss how to:
• create research designs building on avant-garde, documentary and ethnographic approaches;
• combine arts-based strategies of data collection, such as drawing and collage, with qualitative methods of observation, participation and interview;
• use sketches and comics in the study of everyday lives, urban landscapes and material culture;
• elaborate strategies of analysis of multisensory data;
• employ the research assemblage and write research poems complemented by visual narratives;
• apply arts-informed strategies of dissemination of research outputs.
You will need to bring pencils, markers, paper, old magazines, scissors and glue, and some of your qualitative data as well.
The course will run on Zoom from 10:00-13:00 each day (charged at 1.5 full days)
