BIG QUALIDATA: Tackling Analysis of Very Large Volumes of Qualitative Data in Social Science Research
Monday 9th May 1-4pm, University of Edinburgh, Manchester and Southampton.
Can social researchers scale up techniques of working with qualitative data and meaningfully analyse massively more text than they can possibly read? Our forthcoming seminar will seek to explore this question with three researchers using different types of software: R, Leximancer and NVivo.
You can join the event in Edinburgh: Staff Room 6th Floor Chrystal Macmillan Building, 15a George Square EH8 9LD or join interacting audiences watching on screen and able to ask questions in Manchester (Room 2.07, Humanities Bridgeford Street building) & Southampton (Room 58/2097, Murray Building, Highfield Campus).
Our speakers include:
- Professor Ken Benoit, Professor of Political Science Research Methodology, LSE
Using R in analysis of news media and political discourse
- Dr Elena Zaitseva, Teaching and Learning Academy, Liverpool John Moores University
Using Leximancer to analyse written feedback from the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (feedback from students in 100 Higher Education Institutions).
- Professor Wendy Olsen, Professor of Socio-Economics, Manchester University, with Samantha Watson and John McLoughlin
Keyness and Discourse Intertextuality in Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research (Using NVivo with the British National Corpus)
