Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This methodology course explores the broad theme of researching lives dynamically through time, with a particular focus on the qualitative dimensions of temporal enquiry. The course will establish the significance and value of dynamic approaches to social enquiry and show how time is not simply a vehicle for a study, the medium through which it is conducted (as in classic longitudinal approaches) but is also a rich theoretical construct and topic of enquiry that drives the generation and analysis of data. The course will be tailored to the needs of advanced masters and doctoral students and delivered through a series of 6 lectures, 4 interactive workshops, research ‘surgeries’, and the provision of power point handouts and reading lists. A course reader on this theme is currently under development for Sage; where possible, electronic drafts of chapters will be made available for course participants. The course will be structured around the following themes: (1) Researching Lives Dynamically through Time: Synergies and Distinctions between Approaches, (2) Conceptual Foundations: Re-thinking Time and the Life course, (3) Crafting Temporal Field Enquiry: Research Design and Practice, (4) The Ethics of Temporal Research, (5) Managing and Analysing Temporal Data and (6) the Value and Impact of Temporal Research.
