REGISTRATION OPEN: Using creative and visual methods in comparative research

University of Surrey, 15th June 2018

Increasing use is made of both creative and visual methods in social research. Nevertheless, to date there has been very little discussion of the extent to which such methods can be used in comparative research. This seminar will explore some of the challenges of using these methods cross-nationally, examining the different cultural associations that may be brought to bear in different national contexts, and how these are accounted for in research design, data collection and analysis. It will also draw on the experiences of researchers working in this area, to explore how such challenges can most effectively be addressed.

The seminar features two parallel streams of exciting papers speaking to these themes alongside keynote papers from: Agata Lisiak (Bard College, Berlin) and Rita Chawla-Duggan (University of Bath)

Full programme can be accessed here

The event is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Limited places are available so do register early.
