RESEARCH METHODS ON GENDER AND MANAGEMENT SEMINARS – ONLINE SERIES HOSTED BY LANCASTER UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT SCHOOL
The second seminar of the series will focus on Participant Observation with speakers Dr Farooq Mughal, (University of Bath), Professor Valerie Stead (Lancaster University) and Professor Caroline Gatrell (University of Liverpool)
Hosts: Professor Valerie Stead & Dr Sophie Alkhaled (Lancaster University)
The purpose of the presentation is to show participant observation as a research method for qualitatively studying gender. Participant observation will be discussed in the context of management education research with the understanding that the design and process of both the learning activity and qualitative inquiry are influenced by gendered and cultural assumptions. The subjective positioning of the researcher and participants will be examined as both reflect broader discourses which shape not only their behaviour but also the data collection activity. The presentation will also touch upon the ethical considerations, the process, and the key features of participant observations in gender and management research.
