Professor Bren Neale, School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Leeds will lead this two day methodology course that will provide a detailed introduction to Qualitative Longitudinal (QL) research methods.
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.
It will also highlight the power of QL research to discern the factors that shape the life course, to understand how and why changes and continuities occur, for whom, and under what circumstances (as opposed to a more narrow and surface picture of what changes and when, across broad segments of the population).
The course will be tailored to the needs of established researchers who are interested in dynamic approaches to social enquiry and wish to update or refresh their skills to support their current or future research. It will be delivered through a series of four lectures, four interactive workshops, and the provision of power point handouts and reading lists.
