Event description

We are delighted to invite you to a Qualitative ‘Methods in Action’ day event, hosted by Birkbeck’s Department of Organizational Psychology Qualitative Research Group.

The day will feature a mix of presentations and panel discussions by academic staff, current and recently completed PhD students from the department. The theme will be exploring the participant / researcher relationship in qualitative research.

We are also delighted to announce that the keynote address will be given by Professor Bill Lee at the University of Sheffield Management School. He has published widely on topics across management, accounting and related disciplines. He is associate editor for Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management (QROM) and of the European Management Review (EMR). At EMR he has established a new section, “Methodology Matters”, which provides a peer-reviewed outlet for articles that make a methodological contribution.

Our aim is to deliver an informal overview of some of the innovative or less traditional methods (including longitudinal and visual approaches) that are currently being used in the qualitative research undertaken in the department. There will be plenty of opportunity to talk to staff and PhD students about their work and to find out more about these methods and what these can contribute to knowledge and understanding in organizational and management research.
