This month MethodSpace will focus on emerging and online research methods– emerging ideas about research and how we can keep conducting inquiries during the pandemic. You will find interviews with innovative authors and researchers, original posts, and open-access resources. In September SAGE is a sponsor for the Nvivo conference, Qualitative Research in a Changing World, so we’ll highlight content and speakers from this global event. Check back throughout the month– find the evolving series of posts here.
Remember chance meetings at face-to-face conferences?
A number of years ago I attended a conference hosted by The Qualitative Report. I was impressed by a couple of lively, interactive sessions run by students. I discovered that all of these students were studying with Dr. Trena Paulus. I was delighted to meet this super prof, and we’ve been in touch ever since. We’re both passionate about qualitative research, and see our work as complementary.
Trena collaborates with the talented Jessica Lester. I was happy to see a new edition of the important book they co-authored, Digital Tools for Qualitative Research. This edition expands and updates the earlier work. To signal this move beyond digital tools to include research uses of online spaces and electronic resources, the new edition merited a new title: Doing Qualitative Research in a Digital World.
To learn more about this book, I had a lively conversation with Trena and Jessica. Take a look! It will come out in December, but is available to pre-order now.
