Call for Papers: Using Creative and Visual Methods in Comparative Research


Reading Time: 1 minute

A one-day seminar funded by the International Journal for Social Research Methodology
Friday, 15 June 2018, University of Surrey
Keynote speakers: Agata Lisiak (Bard College, Berlin) and Rita Chawla-Duggan (University of Bath)

Increasing use is made of both creative and visual methods in social research. Nevertheless, to date there has been very little discussion of the extent to which such methods can be used in comparative research. This seminar will explore some of the challenges of using these methods cross-nationally, examining the different cultural associations that may be brought to bear in different national contexts, and how these are accounted for in research design, data collection, and analysis. It will also draw on the experiences of researchers working in this area, to explore how such challenges can most effectively be addressed. We welcome papers that address any aspect of using creative and/or visual methods in comparative research, or across spaces of difference more broadly defined (e.g., with groups from different ethnic or social class backgrounds).

Abstract submission

Please send abstracts of up to 250 words by 14 April 2018 to Rachel Brooks at the University of Surrey: r.brooks@surrey.ac.uk 

There will be no charge for attending the seminar as all costs are kindly being covered by the International Journal for Social Research Methodology
