Ethnography, Language & Communication: Key Concepts and Methods Summer School, University College of London, London, UK, 27-31 July 2020. Application Deadline: 1 March 2020.
Is ‘qualitative data analysis’ too vague for you? Are you wondering how to do justice to your data? If you are researching social processes, institutions, culture or identity, but are unsure about how to analyse the discourse data from your fieldwork, then consider joining this five-day research training course.
The programme is designed to help PhD and post-doctoral researchers to navigate the twin perils of over- and under-interpreting discourse data. It introduces a range of key perspectives and tools used to study language and communication ethnographically and it facilitates the study of social practice in a wide range of different settings – education, workplace, recreation, health etc.
The course will be taught by an international team from several leading research institutions: Prof Jeff Bezemer, Dr Adam Lefstein, Dr Piia Varis, Dr Julia Snell, Prof Ben Rampton.
