Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung
What do people do to make their living? What are the risks that people face for their livelihoods? How do they deal with adversities such as droughts, floods, or market price fluctuations? Students in Development Geography who want to get a first-hand insight into the live-worlds of people in the Global South, will – at one point – be confronted with the question what research methods can be applied to empirically and scientifically find answers to these questions. The course Understanding Rural Livelihoods: Methods and Research Designs will enable students to systematically approach these questions.
The aim of the course is twofold: (1.) to provide an overview of quantitative, qualitative and participative social science research methods in Geographic Development Studies and (2.) to practice the formulation of research problems and the development of research designs. The course will address the following questions: Which methods exist and can be applied for data collection? How can they be applied? Which practical skills are required? How can different types of data be analyzed? What are the advantages and drawbacks of particular methods? How can methods be combined? A particular attention will be given to the application of methods in foreign cultural settings and the implications of conducting research in these settings will be discussed. The course aims at enabling participants to navigate the field of data collection and analysis and pursue further individual in-depth studies.
The course is intended to train the participants of a research excursion to the north of Thailand that will take place in July, 2019. However, the course conveners welcome students interested in deepening their knowledge on research methods and research designs applied in Geographical Development Research.
