“Modern Methodologies: Developments in Doing Sociological Research”


Western Sydney University, Parramatta Campus, February 15th-16th, 2018

We invite abstracts from Postgraduates and ECRs to participate in a workshop exploring methodological issues and developments in sociological research. This workshop, bringing together select Postgraduates and ECRs, provides participants with an opportunity to present and workshop their own methodological approaches. The event will involve paper sessions and panel sessions, where participants raise questions and issues for discussion, as well as workshop presentations from academics working in social research. We welcome papers addressing social research methodologies including using qualitative, quantitative, digital, participatory, mixed and arts-based research methods. We also encourage practical or interactive presentations. Places have been limited to give participants the opportunity to discuss and develop their research in substantive depth.
To apply please send a 200 word abstract to by January 19, 2018. Selected participants will be notified on January 22. The workshop is free of charge for TASA members, and $40 for non-TASA members (Annual Postgraduate TASA membership is $53.10).
