Welcome to Qualitative Research beyond the Interview (2021)

Description: This two-day online course provides an introduction to state-of-the art qualitative methods addressing innovative fields of inquiry including various approaches to online research and video-analysis. The course is located broadly in the field of Discursive Psychology, Cultural Psychology and Applied Linguistic, but takes an inter- and trans-disciplinary perspective and is open to PhD students from various disciplinaries interested in the topic.
