On the 18th October 2016 we will be hosting a seminar at The Foundling Museum in London, ‘Approaches to Analysing Qualitative Data: Archaeology as a Metaphor for Method’.
The seminar will ask the question, how can we ‘dig down’, and where do we dig, to get an analytic grip when working with large and complex bodies of qualitative data? The metaphor of archaeology enables qualitative analysts to think about what lies ‘underneath’ the corpus of material being analysed, working extensively and intensively to identify and excavate meaning. Researchers working with different bodies of qualitative materials will be discussing how they approached their analysis, from a range of methodological perspectives. The seminar is likely to be of interest and use to researchers with a range of qualitative analytic skills and experience, from postgraduate to senior.
Our speakers include:
Professor Emeritus Clive Seale (Brunel University) : An archaeological approach working with keyword analysis of a large corpus of qualitative data
Professor Maria Tamboukou (University of East London) : Archaeology of knowledge and working in the archives
Dr. Susie Weller (University of Southampton) and Dr. Emma Davidson (University of Edinburgh) : A layered archaeological approach to analysis across multiple sets of qualitative longitudinal data
