Methodological approaches to document analysis in Social Sciences
Fri 23 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
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.
