Workshop: Critical qualitative research in times of neoliberal austerity
Fri 21 April 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
As part of our Symposium with Prof Stefan Selke from Furtwangen University in Germany, in this afternoon workshop researchers and postgraduate students will have opportunities to present and discuss their research projects in a friendly environment. Attendees are asked to also attend the Public Lecture in the morning, although it is possible to only register for the academic workshop.
The programme is provisional at this stage and after registration we will contact attendees to confirm the details and provide guidance for those wishing to present their research.
14:00 Introduction: Critical qualitative research in times of neoliberal austerity
14:15 Open Session
In this Open Session, researchers and postgraduate students from different backgrounds and disciplines are invited to discuss research in progress along with any practical challenges in a supportive environment. We will explore opportunities for collaborative research and publication projects in the areas of food poverty research but contributions are also welcome from related areas that address the impacts of neoliberal austerity. Prof Selke will be involved in the session and offer his expertise in the research area as well as with ethnographic methodologies and innovative approaches in public sociology.
Researchers and postgraduates can present some of their (on-going) research or you may bring along some of your qualitative data for some feedback and group discussion. For example, you may have questions about your data collection or be unsure about how to code and analyse your data. We will also be doing a short introduction on using software (NVIVO and MAXQDA) for qualitative data analysis.
This is a great opportunity to get some supportive feedback and advice on your research, so if you'd like to present something please let us know by Wednesday 19th April (email@example.com) so we can have handouts produced for participants. We suggest doing a short introduction of no more than 10 minutes (you may use powerpoint if you wish) about the background and methodology of your research, followed by 20 minutes where you can ask participants to do an activity based on your data or just have a group discussion.
Or you can just come along and learn more about critical social research!
16:30 Networking and possible launch of a Critical Food Poverty Research Network
Together we will discuss the potential for future collaboration and events.
