The purpose of this year’s summer school is to address different types of troubles and challenges when collecting and interpreting qualitative data and writing up the analysis. The course lectures will address various types of challenging research settings such as investigating and gaining access in specific types of organisations or milieus.
22.08.2018 kl. 12.00 - 24.08.2018 kl. 15.00
Qualitative research often takes place in settings or milieus in which the researcher may find difficult to navigate. At other times, the research addresses sensitive or tacit themes where informants appear reluctant, unwilling or unable to speak up and share information. Sometimes the research design and analysis of qualitative empirical data also fuels questions on what might happen when qualitative researchers base their research on the voices of others (i.e. the problem of representation).
The course will pinpoint strategies that different researchers have used in order to navigate and carry out successful research in difficult fields and their reflections on how to present their analysis of the empirical data from such fields. The course will also address how troubles and challenges may inspire methodological reflexivity towards delicate issues such as power and positionality in the research process, and how such reflexivity may be a source of data in itself.
English. Papers can be written in English or in Scandinavian languages.
