QM-Lab – short information
(for detailed information see MWK Sharepoint)

The MWK Qualitative Methodologies Lab is created as a space where scholars, whose research projects are based on qualitative research and self-collected data – obtained by interviewing, observational and interactive methods - will get aware of and discuss specific ethical, practical and methodological issues they will / might encounter during the research process.

The main fields for discussion are following:

1.         Ethical dilemmas that are linked with the research practice.
2.         Reflexivity as a self-critical introspection and self-conscious analytical scrutiny.
3.         “Agency of the field” –field interactions, external conditions of research and their impact on research process and research results.
4.         Contemporary scholarship on innovative research methods that arise from the changing fieldwork environments as a main feature of “the world in flux” (mobile methodologies, virtual/cyber ethnography, audio-visual methods, etc.)

The MWK Lab sessions are designed as series of interactive workshops.

Scheduled are three session in summer semester 2021:

June 14, 2021, 12.30pm
June 28, 2021, 12.30pm
July 12, 2021, 12.30pm
