Analysing Qualitative Data Masterclass with Professor David Silverman

Date(s) - 13/10/2021 - 14/10/2021 All Day


Qualitative researchers often try to do the same as quantitative research but with smaller samples. This interactive master-class is relevant to early-stage PhD students who want to do qualitative research and to write it up rigorously and effectively. It provides guidance on how to use the latest constructionist approaches which treat interviews, documents and digital data as instances of complex behaviours and hence complementary to quantitative research.

This masterclass offers lectures and data workshops covering the latest approaches to key areas of qualitative research:

  • Analysing interview data [failures in interview research; how to improve data analysis]
  • Analysing documents and digital data [treating these as data in their own right; methods of data analysis]
