Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

CONTENT:
This course is dedicated to enhancing your knowledge of and familiarity with (comparative) qualitative methods - interviews & focus groups, participant observations, and digital ethnography / digital methods - for use in your own research projects. Looking at these methods from a practical perspective, we will also dedicate time to the topics of research ethics, the purpose of research questions, and data analysis. Doing so, we will focus specifically on researching topics in the area of *Inequality in Health and Society*. Your research projects will deal with aspects within this general topic of your own choosing and analyze them from a political science / social science perspective.

OBJECTIVES:
Students will learn to:
- formulate their own research interests and questions,
- create a qualitative research design suitable for their research questions,
- conduct every stage of research with awareness of ethical principles and guidelines for qualitative social science research projects,
- demonstrate knowledge of the main approaches of collecting and analyzing qualitative data, and
- design and conduct a research project based on qualitative, social science methods, both independently and in a research group.

METHODS:
The format of the class will involve practical exercises to prepare you for research, discussions of literature and other topics surrounding data collection and analysis in class, writing short essays on literature, as well as conducting your own (small) research project.

ATTENDANCE:
