Research Methods Workshop
NHG 101, Chemnitz Reichenhainer Str. 90, Thursday July 13, 2017, 10-19h
Recently, we have noticed an increasing focus and increasing demands on methodology in academic writing, for MA and PhD theses as well as for publications in international research journals. This is a special challenge in particular for young African scholars coming to Europe. In many respects, this is also an opportunity to discuss the impact of the new approaches often called Digital Humanities on old research questions.
This workshop proposes a survey of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies presented by young practitioners, e.g. researchers who have recently finished their theses using these methods or who are planning to finish in the near future. The Workshop combines introductory presentations and concrete problem discussions by individual researchers and leaves enough room to personal exchange, esp. if researchers intend to attend the Corpus Linguistic & Digital Humanities Conference the following day. In this case, visitors should make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, e.g. the modern Chemnitz City Hostel in the city centre.
If you wish to attend the workshop free of charge, send a 300- to 500-word abstract of your thesis project (with details about your research experience, so that we can prepare the materials accordingly) to Josef Schmied by July 1st.
