Qualitative Research Method

Dates:
  • Mon 21 Jan 2019 09.00 - 11.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-01-21 9:00 2019-01-21 11:00 Europe/Paris Qualitative Research Method

The course offers an introduction to qualitative methods in social research, which is compulsory for all first-year researchers in the EUI SPS Department. The aim of the course is to introduce researchers to state-of-the-art knowledge in qualitative research and methods, including their respective strengths and weaknesses. The course has two parts. The first is concerned with the crafting of research puzzles and qualitative research designs, that is, case-based research. In the second part, we turn to specific methodological approaches: process-tracing, archival work, interviewing and ethnography. We will focus on readings that either explain the purpose and logic of these approaches, or apply them, or provide guidance on how to carry out the research. The course will also draw on the concrete experiences of doctoral researchers doing qualitative research.
