International Workshop – Snapshots of Change: Assessing Social Transformations in Qualitative Research

URPP Asia and Europe opened the call for papers for the International Workshop “Snapshots of Change: Assessing Social Transformations in Qualitative Research”.

DEADLINE: March 1st, 2015

LOCATION: University of Zurich

The workshop will take place on 23-24 October 2015.

The organisers are interested in the three following dimensions, but other proposals falling into the workshop topic are also welcome:

1) What kind of data enables us to assess social change in qualitative research?

2) How should we approach the ways actors conceptualise change? What are the benefits of imposing an epistemological break with these conceptualisations and what do we gain or lose by studying them as an object of inquiry in their own right, to be described in their socially and historically situated settings?

3) How do we position our research in relation to different temporalities and scales of change: short- and long-term approaches, individual and collective temporalities, local and global? How do we connect these different scales?
