Research for making the familiar strange and the strange familiar

This module consists of a series of talks aimed at beginning and established researchers interested in developing their understanding of research methods in the social sciences. Staff and research-higher-degree students in the faculties of Education and Social Work, Arts and Social Sciences, and Law are warmly invited to attend.

Lectures in this module focus on different types and aspects of qualitative research, while exploring the ways that qualitative research challenges understanding and preconceptions of the researcher, participants and/or the readers of research.

The school provides research training support in the form of this and other free modules as part of a process of promoting a vibrant research culture within the school and the Division of Arts and Social Sciences, by engaging established and emerging researchers to talk about how they go about their own work with a focus on how they conceptualise and enact the research process.

Interested researchers are welcome to attend any – or all – sessions.
