Description

Critical Realism: The Case Study and the Problem of Singularity

Abstract: Across the disciplines, scholars have turned to critical realism, a philosophy of social science that works against the grain of both positivism and social constructivism, to show how the case study can offer robust explanatory, causal accounts. In this talk, Dr. Jeffrey Longhofer will explore how with critical realism case study research can be grounded in fundamentally different epistemological assumptions. He will deepen the critical realist understanding of the case study by considering Bernard Lahire’s work on singularity.

Jeffrey Longhofer, Ph.D., Associate Professor of social work at Rutgers University, holds graduate degrees in anthropology and social work and is supervising analyst in New Jersey. He was trained at Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center and the Hanna Perkins Center (Cleveland, OH). He has five books: Columbia University Press (2010): On Having and Being a Case Manager: A Relational Method for Recovery; Oxford University Press (2013), Qualitative Methods for Practice; Palgrave MacMillan (2015), A to Z for Psychodynamic Practice and two books with Routledge Press: The Social Work and K-12 Schools Casebook (2017) and The Social Work and Sexual Trauma Case Book: Phenomenological Perspectives (forthcoming).
