Event description

Description

Instructors: Claes Belfrage (University of Liverpool), Harald Köpping Athanasopoulos (Univerisity of Liverpool) and Felix Hauf (Goethe University Frankfurt)

Critical grounded theory (CGT) is a methodology designed to operationalize theories underpinned by critical realism. It critically reworks grounded theory, a popular but often uncritically adopted methodology in the social sciences, to render it compatible with the ontology and epistemology of critical realism. Rather than relying on discursive artefacts, as grounded theory tends to do, CGT invites the theoretically equipped researcher to ‘go places’ and ‘talk to people’ in order to investigate what people actually do with discourses in particular settings and processes before working this grounded data up into critical grounded theory. CGT is a coherent methodology stringing ontology, epistemology and method together to provide a flexible, albeit rigorous, framework. This workshop will introduce Critical Grounded Theory to researchers interested in critical realism and in the development of their methodology.

*Lunch is provided.
