Writing Ethnographic and other Qualitative-Interpretive Research: An Inductive Approach

when 17 February 2013 - 22 February 2013
duration 1 week
credits 2 ECTS

This seminar explores issues in one of the „genres‟ of academic writing: ethnographic and other forms of interpretive-qualitative research. The course will proceed inductively, working from published empirical research to more general observations about how texts convince, treating those articles as data for our analyses of writing. The course is intended for those who have field data in hand and are starting to write research papers, at whatever level (doctoral student, post-docs, Assistant Professors, ).
