Feminism, quants and stats: research methods workshop

Dates: 15th – 16th September 2016, 9-5

Location: Irene Manton South Cluster

Facilitator: Rachel Cohen

The School of Sociology and Social Policy are running a two day workshop introducing statistical and quantitative research methods for qualitative researchers in the social sciences and humanities. There will be a particular emphasis on debates in feminism about quantitative methods.  It will be lead by Rachel Cohen (City), who specialises in quantitative methods and associated feminist debates. A small number of places are left.

Workshop overview:

  • Engage with the debates in feminism about quantitative research methods
  • Introduce key concepts in quants and stats
  • Include practical work
  • Provide a supportive atmosphere in which to learn all those things you always wanted to know about statistics but were afraid to ask.

What you would get out of it:

  • A better understanding how data is being used by other people
  • A vision of how you may use existing quantitative data and/or quantitative methods alongside qualitative methods

If you are interested in attending please contact Rosemary Lucy Hill by lunchtime Monday 12th September.
