Event description

Description

This masterclass for social scientists and post-graduate students provides ways forward for the practicalities and dilemmas faced by qualitative researchers in the social sciences. Using alternate research techniques for ‘outsiders,’ in a dynamic and disruptive world of rapid and volatile change, how do we as researchers negotiate the appropriate use of methods in multicultural or Aboriginal research, so that we engage individuals and communities, providing them with benefits and legacies?

With difficult investigations needing to be undertaken in the domains of multicultural societies, Aboriginal communities or in seeking to create value in a troubled world:

  • What do we do when a survey doesn’t cut the mustard?
  • Whose ‘voice’ are we collecting and how does sampling affect results?
  • If using visual research, how do we negotiate the importance of ‘absence’?
  • What methods are applicable for ‘outsider’ research?
  • How do we overcome issues of whiteness in our research?
  • How can we use participatory community research to address the ‘outsider’ issue”
  • How do we learn to understand the mess and complexity of societies undergoing disruptive change?
  • How do we ensure our research benefits societies, peoples and communities?
  • How are these materials and methods received by academia and their publishers?

For the masterclass

Bring along your questions to ask our expert! The masterclasses will be participative, collaborative and engaging as well as theoretical and practical.

York University Distinguished Professor Russell Belk arrived at the York University in 2006, where he took up the Kraft Foods Canada Chair in Marketing. In 2014, he was awarded the title York University Distinguished Research Professor. With more than 400 publications to his name, and sitting on the editorial boards of over 20 journals, including the prestigious Journal of Consumer Research, Professor Belk is now considered the ‘father of qualitative research.’ His academic research covers domains such as gift-giving, consumer behavior, materialism, collecting and the extended self. Professor Belk forged the way for another means of undertaking research when qualitative analysis was little understood (and less well accepted) in business schools.
