In this course we will be getting to grips with the challenge of understanding what qualitative research is all about and how we can use it and develop it to understand life in today's world. Whilst we will be exploring popular techniques such as interviewing and participant observation, emphasis will be placed on how more innovative and creative research practices such as soundwalking, visual methods and mobile methods can push traditional research practices in new directions which perhaps better reflect the character and concerns of today's world.
Essay (60%) and take-home examination (40%).
