Event description

Description

This one-day workshop for doctoral researchers from the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter is funded by the GW4 Alliance. It is a mixture of presentations, discussions, and ‘hands-on’ group sessions and will be delivered by Dr. Aimee Grant (Cardiff University), Prof. Jonathan Scourfield (Cardiff University), Dr. Emilie Whitaker (University of Salford), Dr. George Jennings (Cardiff Metropolitan University).

It aims to introduce doctoral researchers to various types, ways and approaches of analysing documents as data, either on their own or as part of multimodal designs. Overall, the workshop aims at providing attendees with an overview of main types and key methodologies used to approach documents, encouragement to apply them on their own research after reflecting on their relevance with their research questions, and an opportunity to work alongside and network with fellow researchers who share an interest on analysing written texts.


Doctoral students travelling from Bristol, Bath and Exeter (including the Cornwall campus) will be reimbursed for their travel expenses. Those from Exeter (including the Cornwall campus) can also be reimbursed for one night stay. These are at budget costs as per the GW4 stipulations which will be sent to selected participants upon their request.

Places are limited to ensure an equal distribution among the four institutions and a waiting list will be created if needed.
