Methods Fair 2019: Creativity in Social Science Research

Time: 10.30 - 16.45

Venue: Roscoe Building, The University of Manchester, M13 9PL

methods@manchester is delighted to announce their annual Methods Fair: Creativity in Social Science Research, will be held on 28th October 2019 at The University of Manchester from 10.30am to 4.45pm.

Building on the success of the 2017 Methods Fair, which focused on creative ways of presenting research findings and engaging audiences, this year’s theme explores creativity in the methods researchers use and how creativity can enhance research practices, including data generation and recording, analysis and data presentation.

Creative research methods have developed and multiplied in recent decades, providing alternative ways of knowing and understanding the world, as well as answering complex research questions that cannot be achieved by traditional methods alone. However, researchers are also being creative with conventional research methods and approaches to analysis. We aim to showcase the various ways creativity drives all kinds of social science research and methodologies, from the conception of an idea, to creative ways of generating, collecting, recording, analysing and presenting data.

The full programme will be released at the beginning of October 2019. Registration is now open.
