Event description
An interdisciplinary workshop in honour of Professor Eric Dunning.

About this Event

Welcome!

We are holding an interdisciplinary workshop which aims to highlight the importance of using different research methods such as visual, biographical, historical and other forms of life/personal documents.

The workshop is open to students who wish to do things differently in their research and to introduce or deepen their knowledge of Norbert Elias' Processual Sociology.  As well as lectures from world renowned experts on mixed methods and Elias' work, there will be small group discussions between current and former doctoral students.

The workshop title “Doing Things Differently” symbolises the intent to provide a springboard from which further research opportunities can be developed, enabling attendees to be immersed in an environment that promotes open-minded and open-ended research.

The workshop will be held at our newly refurbished home in 103–105 Princess Road East, Leicester, LE1 7LG.  Details are on the Eventbrite ticket.

Attendees will need to pay for their travel and accommodation, but we have obtained funding to cover the cost of the workshop - including refreshments, the trip and poster printing, etc.  As a result, places are strictly limited to 25 on a first come, first served basis, so if you want to attend, please click here to secure your place.

The 3rd day will consist of a NO COST field work visit to the village that was the setting for Elias and Scotson’s famous The Established and The Outsiders study.  This visit aims to emphasise the importance of applying research to real-world and real-life environments.

If you would like to attend then you need to 'purchase' your free ticket on Eventbrite. Please visit our website for more information.
