Study group: Thinking Critically About Analysis

 THINKING CRITICALLY ABOUT ANALYSIS

  DEVELOPING ANALYSIS AND CONCEPTUAL INSIGHTS IN SOCIAL RESEARCH

  MONDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2010, UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS

  We would like to invite you to attend a one day event, for
POSTGRADUATE and POSTDOCTORAL researchers

  * Leading academics will present ideas about what analysis can mean
in different methodological contexts, particularly in relation to
substantive findings and theoretical insights.

  * This will involve moving beyond identifying ?techniques? or
procedures, by focusing on how processes of data analysis might
enhance our conceptual understanding of the social world.

  * The event will offer a training opportunity for all who are
interested in critical engagement in research methodology, and in
research practice.

  Presentations, workshops and a plenary session will enable
delegates to think critically about data analysis in social research,
and in practice. Delegates will explore specific issues and, where
relevant, share insights from their own research and experience.

  Delegates will be asked to sign up to a morning and afternoon
workshop prior to the event. Two workshops, facilitated by the
speakers, will run parallel to each other in MORNING and AFTERNOON
sessions.
