Our series of online workshops introducing critical realism will be starting next week. These free learning opportunities are intended to support PhD students or early career researchers who would like to learn about critical realism and its use in social research.
There will be six workshops, from October to December 2021, and each workshop will run 3 times, to accommodate participants from different time zones. You’ll find fuller details of the content on our workshops page, but we are now able to announce the presenters, and provide registration links to anyone who has not yet received them. The presenters are as follows:
- Workshop 1 Ontology: Caroline Kuhn and Jack Newman
- Workshop 2 Epistemology: Ismael Al-Amoudi
- Workshop 3 Methodological Choices: Deepak Saxena
- Workshop 4 Approaches to Analysis: Gareth Wiltshire
- Workshop 5 Key Concepts: Dave Elder-Vass
- Workshop 6 Critical Realism as a Framework: Steve Vincent
Each session will involve:
- Engaging with some introductory learning materials prior to the session
- Attending a live-online webinar facilitated by an experienced academic from the Critical Realism Network. These sessions will involve some delivered content and some interactive activities.
- Signposting to further learning materials after the session
There is some variation in the timing to accommodate presenters’ other commitments, but typically the sessions will run at:
2pm UK time on Tuesdays (Central)
8am UK time on Wednesdays (East)
