Facet Methodology is an approach developed by a team of colleagues at the Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives, University of Manchester. It is a creative approach to mixing methods and ‘playing with epistemologies’, with the aim of creating insights into our social world. The morning sessions in this face to face workshop will introduce some of the key elements in the approach, and offer examples of how the approach has been used in research. In the afternoon, participants and tutors will work in small groups to consider whether and how a Facet Methodology approach might be useful in participants’ own projects.
This workshop is aimed at researchers at various career stages, from PhD students onwards. Participants will be working on their own projects. To this end, we ask potential participants to register their interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title your message ‘Facet Methodology application’ and include a short outline of a few sentences explaining what kind of project you are working on and at what stage this project is (planning, data collection, data analysis).
