Webinars and Videos

Given the difficulty and expense of traveling for conferences, we are providing you the opportunity to engage in conversation with some of the leading critical realists without the inconvenience of leaving your desk. Using the GoToWebinar platform, the webinars consist of 35 minute lecture from the presenter followed by a Q&A session moderated by Director of the Critical Realism Network, Professor Philip Gorski. The aim of the webinars is to provide a resource for students and scholars to learn about critical realism and integrate it into their research, fieldwork, or teaching curricula.

In addition to the Reading Guide, the webinar series is a key part of the repository of resources we provide on our website. It is our hope that the webinars will become part of your conceptual tool kit for learning about critical realism and exploring how it is being applied in sociology, social sciences, and the humanities more broadly. The Centre for Critical Realism is also running Critical Realism Matters, an occasional webinar series – you will find talks from this series on the YouTube channel too.
